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.
A very good purchase.
I bought this camera and I am very pleased with it.
The IS is at good standards, it really work in a moving situation. The CMOS sensor is way better that a CCD. It makes good pictures inside and outside, in good light and in low light. It is very good for vacation.
A more powerful battery is necessary.
The flashlight is annoying, it hits you fingers when it comes out.

*Too many blurred shots.
*Color not consistant in multiple shots
*HATE the low life of the battery
(it's the worse I've ever used)
*using different settings doesnt make much difference in shots
*Needs a viewfinder

Much Better Than Expected!
The battery life is better than other brands I've used. The picture quality is better than expected. I had difficulties with the menu/controls/settings at first but then I read the manual and keep it in the camera bag for reference. I use the camera to take pictures of ancillary systems in industrial plants which typically have poor lighting and are black or dark in color. The pictures are clear, have the details I need, and have plenty of light as well as contrast. The manual is good for the most part but some instructions are not exactly perfect, but you must review the manual if you want good pictures.

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.
