Summer is almost here and that means it’s time to start planning and thinking about your next vacation! Wherever you’re going this year for summer vacation, having a camera with you is a must. Taking a DSLR will help you capture picture perfect moments, but if space is limited, you’re going on a long trip, you’re hiking through the mountains or you’re backpacking through Europe, having a bulky camera bag with you to carry your camera and lenses is probably a no-go.
Thankfully, there’s Canon’s PowerShot series. These Canon PowerShot cameras offer the optical zoom function that DSLRs have, but in a more compact design that saves you the burden of having to lug around large lenses this summer.
Canon’s PowerShot SX60 HS camera is the newest addition to this series and if you want beautiful shots and portability, this is the camera for you this summer. Within its compact design, this camera has a 65x Optical Zoom Wide-Angle Lens with Optical Image stabilizer, a 16.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMS Sensor, and the latest DIGIC 6 Image Processor, providing you with amazing image quality for close-up and wide shots in all types of lighting.
The PowerShot SX60’s image stabilizer allows you to take the perfect shot in any situation. The intelligent IS technology will analyze camera movement and automatically choose from 8 different modes, giving you time to frame and capture your shot and create shake-free, clear images in a variety of conditions including low-light.
If you want to add more of a creative flair to your photos, the Creative Shot features of this camera will come in handy. The Creative Shot technology analyzes individual scenes, subjects, and exposures to apply any of the 46 filter options to. The camera also saves the original shot and the image with the creative filters separately, so you can have both in your roster.
You’re not just limited to photos because this model of the Canon PowerShot camera takes amazing videos too. It has HD video capabilities, 1080p Full HD Video at 60 frames per second, and External Microphone Support. Plus, it has fast zooming and focus that won’t interfere with your audio capture. There’s also a Hybrid AUTO feature that records up to 4 seconds of video every time you take a picture. It automatically joins the day’s clips and pictures into a video, so you can remember each day of your vacation perfectly. The image stabilizer also works when you’re taking a video, so you can have smooth, clear video segments each time.
And you won’t have to wait until you get home to upload all of your awesome vacation shots and videos. The PowerShot SX60 has built in Wi-Fi, allowing you to share your images and videos on social media the instant you take them. This camera also has remote shooting capabilities – use your smartphone or tablet to access the camera window app and take photos from your camera’s live view from wherever you are.
As part of the Canon Best in Glass sale, the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS camera is now only $499.99 CAD. Take a look at the Canon e-Store’s digital cameras to find one that’s right for you and all of your summer vacation needs.
