Canon PowerShot SX260 HS First Impressions Review$349.99
Canon’s newest premium travel zoom is a conservative update to last year’s SX230 HS.
If it isn't broken, don't fix it. The Canon PowerShot SX260 HS is a familiar follow-up to last year's excellent SX230 HS, though the designers crammed even more zoom crammed into an even slimmer body.
With a 20x reach, a 12.1-megapixel backlit CMOS sensor, a new image processor, and a reasonable asking price of $349, the SX260 HS could once again be one of the year's most popular travel zooms, competing with models from Panasonic, Nikon, and Samsung.
We spent a few minutes with the SX260 HS at the CP+ 2012 photo show in Japan. Read on for our first impressions.
