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.
