Editor's Review

The 260 features an impressive 25-500 20x zoom. Announced alongside the cheaper SX240, the only difference between the two is the inclusion of a GPS in the 260. While the impressive zoom range is a big draw, be warned that the sacrifice you make for such a compact camera is lens speed: it starts at a moderate f3.5 and ends up at a lethargic f6.8 at the long end. Still, this is in line with other compact travel zooms and the SX260's predecessor, the SX230 HS, was our favorite travel zoom. Expect great things.

Canon PowerShot SX260 HS Reviews

Canon PowerShot SX260 HS Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users

Top quality optics, dependability, and convenience of use are just some of the reasons that customers choose Canon digital cameras. Canon has become widely recognized for creating some of the finest digital cameras and digital SLRs that you can buy, and is one of the largest digital camera manufacturers in the world today. Consumers wanting top quality cameras typically have at least a few cameras by Canon on their wish list. Sure enough, Canon has won PC Magazine's Reader's Choice Award for Service and Reliability repeatedly and camera models are consistently given top marks in reviews.

While Canon is not known as a brand that's cheap, Canon digital cameras have earned the status of best buy. This proves that the higher price tag is well deserved. Within the past few years, Canon begun producing several models that are more inexpensive, without sacrificing quality. The Canon PowerShot A1200 is one such example. The A1200 has a small optical viewfinder that makes it easier to shoot outdoors as well as AA batteries, unlike most other models that can be found at this low of a price.

The Powershot A series, the SD or ELPH series compact point-and-shoots, and the Rebel consumer dSLRs like the T4i are just a few examples of Canon digital cameras that have highly praised across the board. Solid design, ease of use, and high picture quality are things you can expect when you buy a Canon camera. The Canon enthusiast compacts found in the G and S series cameras are among the finest Canon digital cameras you can find. The advanced digital camera market has been dominated by these models for a few years now, being great for both amateurs and professionals requiring something pocketable. For example, the Canon PowerShot G15 boasts an LCD screen that swivels, and a 12 megapixel sensor. It is also ideal for low light photography due to its very fast lens.

GPS and WiFi are features that Canon has been adding to its mid and high-end models recently to keep their cameras specifications right on the cutting edge. Although this separates them more clearly from models on the lower end of the spectrum, this also means that these cameras are more expensive. When buying a Canon digital camera, experts recommend that you thoroughly read Canon digital camera reviews and ratings and consult other users in order to pick the right model.
