    Good, bad and bottom line - CNET Reviews


    The Canon PowerShot SX260 HS has shooting modes for every type of photographer from casual to advanced, a useful long zoom lens with excellent image stabilization, and overall excellent photo and video quality for a compact megazoom.


    The SX260 HS' menus and controls can take some getting used to, it's got a short battery life, and photos get noticeably softer-looking indoors or in low light.

    Bottom Line

    The Canon PowerShot SX260 HS' wider, longer lens, a few much-needed design tweaks, and excellent photo quality add up to one pretty great compact megazoom.

    Rated 4.1 out of 5★áby 111reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★áby Great Camera for the money. I have Several Cameras and needed a good point and shoot. The Cannon SX260HS is very compact. takes great pictures indoors and out. It is easy to use and great for taking on trips where the larger DSL's are not as covenient. It does take a little getting used to holding to avoid the flash when it comes up. With a little practice it gets easier to use. For the money it is a great camera and fun to use. 01/23/2013
    Rated 4 out of 5★áby This really is a great little camera. However, for those of you considering the bundled package, be aware that the SD card offered is only a Class 4 card while Canon recommends a minimum Class 6 rated card for this particular camera. That said, the bundle deal (plus buying additional better SD card) is oftentimes cheaper than buying the camera separately. For those people complaining that the camera is too slow, I'm guessing they are using a slower class 4 card. If you plan on using the camera for a lot of HD videos, I definitely would make sure to buy a faster class 6 or higher card. 05/17/2013
    Rated 3 out of 5★áby Good camera if used during the day (not night) The video camera option is good if we use it during the day, but it is not good for low light; it is hard to focus. Sony DHC WX150 is better and give sharper image and video for the same class. The superiority of Canon PowerShot SX260 HS is it has manual option. If we use automatic option, Sony DHC WX150 gives better image and video ; unfortunately, Sony DHC WX150 has no manual option. 01/12/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★áby Great Canon photo quality and excellant value. For a compact ultra zoom camera this Canon product is a winner. The Auto and Easy modes hand over setting up the photo to the camera making it simple for me to take great pictures. Other modes give me more creative control. The GPS function works good and will prove to be useful to me, I think. 01/20/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★áby High tech but easy to use We got this camera for my wife. She did the research and decided it was the best for her needs. She LOVES it. She sets it to AUTO so all she has to do is point and shoot. A really great feature is the zoom. 20x optical zoom brings things in extremely close and the pictures are amazingly clear. The camera a little bigger than some pocket cameras but it is worth it if you want the best pictures. We just came back from a 10 day cruise to Alaska and the pictures she took are beautiful. The zoom let her take pictures from the ship, she got up close pictures of whales, otters, eagles, and sea gulls. They were all clean and clear. 07/07/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★áby Amazing Camera I bought this camera specifically because I wanted a camera with higher zoom. At the same time, I didn't want one of those bulky DSLR cameras. I've been watching for sales on this camera for a long time. I've seen it regularly priced for $300 which is a bit more than I wanted to spend. Wal-Mart had this on sale with an 8 GB memory card and carrying case for $239. Great value!I first used this last week at a music festival and was able to zoom and take pictures way down on the stage even though I was in the reserved seating way in the back. I was amazed at the clarity of the pictures and how far it could zoom. The camera is a little heavier than your normal point and shoot but it is still small enough to fit in my pocket.I love it!! 07/26/2013
    Rated 4 out of 5★áby Got this camera for my daughter because of the manual options it has. So far she loves it. She has alot of the control that she would with a DSLR but in a compact camera. WalMart's shipping was a little slow, but I was expecting that. Would recommend camera and WalMart on-line. 01/03/2013
    Rated 4 out of 5★áby I'm still learning all the settings but am very happy with this camera. 02/17/2013
