Quality of Images
SX60 delivers good images and there’s no doubt about it. Though at few times, the 1/2.3-inch image sensor can be a little bit of a turn-off for delivering average images. Compared to the images produced by other cameras with ultra-zoom feature, its results play somewhere at the middle of the scale. However, opposed to the results given by point-and-shoot cameras with the same image sensor, its images won’t simply match up.
Ultra-zoom cameras are commonly known for their slow performances heading to great dilemmas when it comes to shutter lag. It has a good stabilization system which is crucial to its kind, though tripods can come pretty handy all the time.
