5 out of 5 eggsNice camera!

This review is from: Canon PowerShot SX600 HS Black 16 MP 18X Optical Zoom 25mm Wide Angle Digital Camera HDTV Output

Pros: Very nice camera with a big LCD screen and the full HD is really nice to have. Looks really nice too and has a really long zoom. Picture quality is great in well lit environments.

Cons: A little on the heavy side but it's not much of an issue really. Not the best in low light situations. Also with the flash you can't seem to set it to pop up automatically even in auto mode which I find strange, but probably not a big deal if you never use it much. Another thing is it is mostly automatic but I already knew what I was getting so not really a con for me.

Other Thoughts: I've mostly owned Canon cameras and I've always been happy with them. This cameras menu system is much the same as the ELPH 100 HS I've owned before so it was pretty easy for me to navigate through it. Still not the best in low light even though it is supposed to be, but I have seen much worse than this and it is not all that bad. It is mostly automatic and if you want more flexibility than perhaps a DSLR would be better for you.

Overall it is a nice little camera with lots of fun and cool settings for creativity and perfect for an everyday camera for quick shooting to capture those memorable moments :-)

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent pocket camera

This review is from: Canon PowerShot SX600 HS Black 16 MP 18X Optical Zoom 25mm Wide Angle Digital Camera HDTV Output

Pros: I've taken this camera on several trips over the past year or so, and I've been very pleased with its ease of use and image quality. The optical zoom is amazing (so much that I really can't shoot at full zoom without a tripod or something to steady the camera), and the camera is so good in low light that I often forget to use the flash. And no problems with battery life.

Cons: no GPS. Lots of functions I don't know how to use.

When I first got it, the lens cover didn't always open all the way, leaving a shadow in the corner of a picture. The problem seems to have resolved itself.

Other Thoughts: I started with a similarly-specced camera of a different, but highly respected, brand. That one was very disappointing, with a clumsy control system and a screen that shut off while taking movies. I sent it back and got this one, which is much better.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent pocket camera

This review is from: Canon PowerShot SX600 HS Black 16 MP 18X Optical Zoom 25mm Wide Angle Digital Camera HDTV Output

Pros: High resolution allows cropping photos; great zoom makes it much less necessary. Wifi feature enables direct transfer to smartphone; don't need a computer or cables.

Cons: I still haven't figured out how to connect the camera to the computer through my home wifi network. Partly that's because the cable connection is so easy I haven't made a full effort. I also worried that the screen might get scratched in the pocket with my keys, so I made a fabric cover.

Other Thoughts: I haven't tried to make movies yet.
