Manufacturer's Description

The Canon PowerShot SX600 HS is a compact and super-slim 16 megapixel camera with a high-powered 18x optical zoom plus optical Image Stabilizer. Built-in Wi-Fi lets you transfer images and video directly to select social networking sites, mobile devices and your computer. NFC allows quick and simple pairing to a compatible Android device. Capture stunning 1080p Full HD video with a dedicated movie button, Canon’s HS System helps you take great shots in low-light. The Creative Shot mode lets you create unique images with an artistic flair.

Get closer
The 18x optical zoom and 36x ZoomPlus lets you get closer to the action and helps you capture even faraway subjects with impressive detail. With 25mm ultra-wide angle you can fit more in the frame, perfect for capturing large groups and stunning scenery.

Sharp shots with Intelligent IS
The optical Image Stabilizer is vital for capturing sharp images in low light or when using the full extent of the zoom. Featuring Canon’s Intelligent IS technology, the camera automatically selects the optimal Image Stabilizer mode from 8 options to ensure clear, detailed photos and movies.

Smart Auto (32 scenes). Hybrid Auto
Effortlessly point and shoot for great photos and movies thanks to Smart Auto, which detects the scene and selects perfect settings from 32 variables (21 in movies). Hybrid Auto lets you take photos with Smart Auto and captures a 4 second movie clip before each shot – combining all of them into a fun HD (720p) movie.

Creative Shot
Originality is effortless with Creative Shot. Simply take a shot and the camera will analyse the scene and automatically generate five creative images plus the original unaltered photo – capturing the same subject in a variety of surprising and artistic ways. Select your filter category to create images using your preferred set of Creative Shot filters.

Images worth keeping
Because beautiful images are as precious as the moments they capture, HS System is designed to give them the quality they deserve, even in low light. Using an advanced DIGIC 4+ processor and a 16 Megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor, HS System produces clear photos with the detail, colours and ambience of the scene, just as you experienced it.

Always stay connected
Show the world your latest images using Wi-Fi and NFC to connect the camera to your smartphone. Once connected, you can use the smartphone to add GPS locations to your images or to include yourself in the shot with the remote shooting function. Wi-Fi also allows you to connect with printers, PCs and other compatible devices for easy online sharing and backup.

Create stunning movies
Record superb, Full HD (1080p) movies in MP4 format. Intelligent IS makes movies steadier even when you are walking or shooting from inside a moving car for truly spectacular footage. When you get home use the HDMI-CEC connection for viewing and controlling your movies playback on a compatible HDTV.

See the difference
A large, high quality PureColor II G LCD screen (461k dots) with excellent visibility and durability offers effortless menu navigation, lets you frame and view your shots with ease and makes sharing them a pleasure.
