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.
18x Optical Zoom
The powerful 18x Optical Zoom range (35mm equivalent: 25-450mm) is ideal for capturing memories of kids' achievements on the sporting field, recitals, plays and concerts. From landscapes and wildlife to city scenes and more, this camera has you. Zooming action is quick and precise, and genuine Canon optics help ensure brilliant clarity. Chromatic aberration is compensated across the entire range, and the lens's high optical resolving power works with the camera's high-resolution sensor and advanced image stabilization systems to produce clear, sharp, beautifully detailed images at any zoom length.
Built-in Wi-Fi makes sharing quick and easy
The PowerShot SX600 HS camera is equipped with built-in Wi-Fi technology so you can easily share your creative photos and video with friends and family. The camera can connect directly to both iOS and Android™ devices, and upload images via the free Canon Camera Window app. Easily post your images to social networking and media sites - Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr and now Google Drive through CANON iMAGE GATEWAY or save them to the online photo album to share anytime, anywhere. You can share your images with everyone or to selected groups, and even add comments.
Built-in NFC (Near Field Communication)
The PowerShot SX600 HS camera supports NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, eliminating the need to find and open the Canon CameraWindow app. Simply touch the NFC icon on your camera to your compatible Android device.
