Capture It All. The fact that the PowerShot SX260 HS digital camera is an ultra-slim camera with a powerful 20x Optical Zoom, Optical Image Stabilization and 25mm Wide-Angle lens is only the beginning of its attractions. You'll see detail you never thought possible through the huge zoom and wide-angle lens, while the camera's 12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor deliver the rich, clear low-light performance that is the hallmark of Canon's HS SYSTEM. 1080p Full HD video in stereo is more beautiful than ever, with new high-resolution, high-speed processing. Sophisticated advancements include improved Smart AUTO that optimizes settings for 58 predefined shooting situations, Face ID that prioritizes pre-registered faces, and GPS for tracking and recording your shooting locations.
good with reservations
the camera is compact and takes great pictures BUT it is not intuitive as far as using the features,,my package has no English instructions so am having problems in photo management. Only buy if you inderstand use of the features or it has appropriate instructions contained in your box. I'm still trying to find English instructions for mine.

Not for computer challenged
Read with interest some negative reviews. This is a computer that makes pictures and video. TiP: this camera can do a tremendous number of things, but many won't be important to you. Decide what is and works with those. Ignore the rest and the 220+ manual won't overwhelm you.
I used if for the first time in Kenya and allowed the camera to automatically make the "best exposure" decisions. It made the right call 90% of the time and I'm a professional videographer.
The video was good but rapid movement on any camera in this price range is going to have some issues. My video was good within normal usage.
Bottom line: read the manual, practice with it, find out what it can do and I think you'll be thrilled. A great camera for the price.

Blurry Photos and Videoa
I have this camera and am so disappointed. I rarely get a good photo and have never gotten a good video. This camera was a waste of money. Videos are NOT crisp - photos are NOT crisp. 99.9% of all photos and videos I have taken look blurry. Backgrounds are always burs.
