With 20x optical zoom to get you closer, Full HD movies and GPS to track locations, the compact PowerShot SX260 HS is the ideal travel companion. HS System and Intelligent IS ensure superb results.
20x zoom, 25mm wide-angle lens; compact body
Fit more in the frame with 25mm or get extremely close to distant subjects with 20x optical zoom or up to 39x with ZoomPlus- an advanced zoom technology with more visible detail and sharpness than conventional digital zoom. The compact body means you can capture every precious memory wherever you go.
HS System: 12.1 Megapixel CMOS and DIGIC 5
HS System excels in low light allowing you to capture the real atmosphere of the moment without flash or tripod. Advanced DIGIC 5 processing and a high sensitivity 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor give excellent image quality in all situations.
GPS tags the location of your photos and videos while the Logger function can keep track of your journey. Use the supplied Map Utility software to pinpoint shooting locations and to share them with friends.
Intelligent IS combats camera shake to ensure all your photos and videos are sharp and detailed even at full zoom or in low light. It automatically adjusts the optical Image Stabilizer to the scene from 7 modes to prevent blur.
Full HD movies
Use the movie button to instantly record Full HD (1080p) movies in stereo with optical zoom, while Intelligent IS keeps footage steady. An HDMI connection ensures high quality playback on an HDTV.
7.5 cm (3.0") PureColor II G LCD
A large 460k dot LCD screen with excellent visibility allows easy framing and reviewing of images from any angle plus effortless menu navigation. A tempered glass outer layer gives great durability.
Smart Auto (58 scenes); Face ID
Effortlessly shoot great photos or movies with Smart Auto, which detects the scene and selects optimal settings from 58 variables (21 in movies). It also works with faces stored in Face ID and adapts shooting according to registered age – for example turning off flash and sounds when a sleeping baby is detected. Face ID lets you register up to 12 faces, so they are the focusing priority in every shot.
Manual, Av and Tv modes
Experiment with different effects using Manual modes (Tv, Av and M), which give you creative control over shutter speed and aperture.
Capture fast-paced action with High-speed Burst or slow down fast movement with Super Slow Motion Movie.
Optional 40m Waterproof Case
Protect your camera outdoors and shoot underwater down to 40m with a waterproof case.
