impressive camera

The zoom of the lens is quite smooth and fluid, and you can reach the end of the zoom range fairly quickly.

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.

If you're in the market for a compact superzoom and you're on a budget, the SX600 HS is our recommendation.

With such an impressive performance it's a shame the SX710 HS's image noise levels let the side down somewhat.
