Ultimately the SX60 HS is still a large camera that won’t give you better image quality than a well-sorted travelzoom compact camera costing similar money.

Extraordinary zoom range with excellent image stabilization

Very good image stabilization, excellent photo quality

the Canon PowerShot SX1 IS offers a 20x zoom lens and HD video, which you can't get in a similarly priced dSLR, and delivers more features and slightly better performance and photo quality than the cheaper SX10 IS.
