World longest zoom* The PowerShot SX60 HS has a dynamic zoom range, going from a wide 21mm to a far-reaching 1365mm. Integrated with Canon's ZoomPlus technology, the camera's optical zoom is doubled and its reach further extended to 130x zoom, enabling it to capture the fine details of distant subjects. Advanced Zoom Framing Assist The PowerShot SX60 HS is armed with Advanced Zoom Framing Assist feature, and Zoom Memory to shoot at high zoom and to counter blurry or poorly-composed shots. Under the Advanced Zoom Framing Assist feature, the Seek Assist function allows the camera to intelligently detect panning and to reacquire a fast-moving subject that has moved out of frame by automatically zooming out to the widest angle for a view of the entire scene. Once the subject is found and re-framed, the PowerShot SX60 HS automatically reverts to the previous zoom level to resume shooting. Additionally, Auto Zoom helps to track a subject, and to automatically zoom in or out to maintain that subject's size within the frame. Advanced movie control The PowerShot SX60 HS grants unprecedented control in video recording on a compact camera with Manual Movie mode. This mode allows advanced users to adjust settings such as shutter speed, aperture and ISO. For enhanced sound-capturing quality, the PowerShot SX60 HS comes with an external microphone terminal that can be used in conjunction with an optional external microphone. The buttons and parts of the PowerShot SX60 HS are all designed to be silent to eliminate camera-related sound interference.
