The PowerShot SX60 HS is a digital camera that boasts a lens equipped with a 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor as well as an effective pixel count of approximately 16.1 megapixels. The camera's biggest feature is its 65x optical zoom that can cover range of shots from ultra-wide angle to super-telephoto. Detailed images of the camera parts and menu screens are introduced here.

Released at the end of this September, the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS is the world’s first digital camera equipped with a lens that features 65x optical zoom. The focal length is equivalent to 21-mm at the wide-angle end and 1,365 mm at the telephoto end (with a 35-mm equivalent focal length for both). The camera boasts an unprecedented focal length range in terms of the angle of view that can be covered by a single lens.

At first sight, it might look exactly the same as an entry model DSLR fitted with a standard zoom lens. The depth of the grip makes the camera easy to hold and brings to mind the grip of a DSLR.

The image sensor is a 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor with an effective pixel count of 16.1 megapixels. RAW images can also be recorded.

The maximum ISO speed is ISO3200.
