PowerShot SX600 HS

Powerful Zoom to Go

The PowerShot SX600 HS camera takes you up on the stage, down on the field or anywhere a great shot is happening! That's because tucked into its super-slim 1.02-inch profile is an astonishing feat of engineering: a high-powered 18x Optical Zoom. With a zoom this big in a camera this small, you'll be ready to capture all the moments that matter, whenever and wherever they happen. And built-in Wi-Fi® lets you share the fun with friends and family right away – transfer images and video directly to select social networking sites, mobile devices* and your computer. You can even use the camera for remote capture with your smartphone or tablet**, and simply touch to a compatible AndroidTM device*** using built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) for easy wireless connectivity. You'll also capture stunningly realistic 1080p Full HD video, and use Hybrid Auto to automatically create an exciting highlight reel of an entire day's fun from quick video clips taken before each still. Ideal for the busy photographer looking to travel light, the PowerShot SX600 HS is the camera to slip into your pocket.
