Hello, I have been having such a difficult time trying to decide on this simple "Point and Shoot" pocket size Digital Camera. :( My current camera is that small but now a bit bulky Canon Power Shot SD600 Digital ELPH (3x zoom, 6.0 MP) which served me well. I need more zoom and decided to up grade for everyday use, shows and concert venues, Travel and family, etc. The following are important to me : 1) Zoom 2) Battery Life 3) Shake / hand stable control 4) Low Light capability 5) Price around...
Hi, I am at the moment looking at buying a new pocket camera and I just noticed that there is two Canon SX260 HS "versions" the apparently old one: 5900B011 and new 5900B019 - the pricing in danish currency 1225DKK and the new 1700DKK.My question is: Is there any difference in the cameras? And I don't really understand why they have two prices. :S
i own a new Canon PowerShot SX260 HS. i took pictures in a restaurant where the light was low and people were moving. i shot at Mode Scene Low Light, Auto Exposure, Auto Focus, no Flash (i always avoid Flash), shutter speed 1/8, f/3.5, focal length 5-6mm, ISO 1600, no tripod. most of these pictures came out blurred. how do i balance the need for a wide aperture for low light vs the need for a quicker shutter speed to stop the motion? what are the best settings to use for this situation?...
Hi, I used my PowerShot SX260 HS to take video of an outdoor music peformance. I stood about 100m from the stage, and the sound was not so loud. When I played the recording the sound was terribly distorted... It was as if the sound was too loud for the camera and it had to "clip" it. The camera is quite new, I never took videos with loud sound (all others I took were fine). Doesn't the camera have some kind of AGC (Automatic Gain Control) technology? Maybe I'm doing something wrong? I'd be...
Leaving in 30 days for a 5 day trip to Mexican Caribbean (hour south of cancun). Looking for a compact camera to take along. Trip will consist of visits to 2 different Mayan sites, jungle, caves and of course plenty of beach shots and pictures of the mrs and I.Image quality is king, followed by post process zoom and cropping (junkie for large canvas prints of my best shots) and then compactness (will not be carrying it in a bag). I'm assuming zoom will be used but don't expect the need to...
Hi!Today I got my new camera, a Canon PowerShot SX240 HS. I actually was thinking about buying the SX260 HS but I don't need GPS.I took some pictures with my old Olympus E-510 DSLR and the same picture with the Canon SX240 HS. I put both on Auto. Olympus E-510Canon SX240 HS and again ...Olympus E-510Canon SX240 HSThe pictures from the Canon SX240 HS are looking brighter but overall it doesn't look good at all.Any idea how this is? I actually hoping for at least a similar picture quality or...
I just found my cannon sx230a on a boat floor, floating salt water wont turn on so i think salty water spells the end ? looking at the sx260 hs but would there be a camera with a veiw finder as glare can be impossible in the sun i like the zoom as im often at sea and i suppose the ovious is a water proof model but the sx230 zoom was great ???
The pictures I am getting from the Canon appear MUCH less sharp, in fact, a bit blurry, with or without flash, compared to the Sony. I am making sure to hold the camera still and my subject isn't moving. I'm confused because on dpreview, it seems most people prefer the Canon and I'd really love to prefer it as well since it's $100 cheaper than the Sony. Am I doing something wrong? Anybody else have this problem? I just got both cameras today so I haven't tested extensively or...
