Colour Name: Red
After having bought a Panasonic TZ30 last week to replace an ageing TZ5 my partner decided to renew her travel zoom too and treated herself to the Canon Powershot SX260HS - we both use Nikon DSLRs (a D90 and D3100) as our main cameras. I have taken a eager interest in the new Canon SX260 out of anxiety as to whether I made the right choice in going for the TZ30 but this review focuses on the Canon.

To me the overriding issue is ultimately the quality of photographs rather than novelty features, however, both cameras are in the same price range; have a similar pixel count; 20x zooms with stabilisation and cost circa £300. The key differences are that the Canon is slightly bigger and heavier (deeper plus 30g heavier); has no touch screen; no in camera HDR support or 3D facility - none of these are tiebreakers for us but picture quality is. It's a pity neither the Canon or Panasonic supports RAW mode. Also, both cameras offer a variety of burst modes including a 10fps mode which fixes the focus on the first frame. One differential is that in this mode the Canon LCD turns off which can make panning difficult.

The SX260 is very pocketable and easy to use with a rapid start-up. The zoom/stabilisation are excellent and the pictures remain clear at high zoom. The pictures this Canon produces are very good and more than acceptable from the size of camera, although, at the £300 mark you have a right to expect something better than more basic pocket cameras. The SX260 maintains the principle in cameras of this type that as the ISO increases the noise level increases significantly - I can only say that it is no worse or better than our TZ30.

The Canon Powershot SX260's headline feature is 20x zoom. This zoom goes from a wide angle 25mm to 500mm which gives you an excellent range which will cover most all circumstances. They have gone for a 12megapixel sensor which means your photos are generally brighter - but still with enough resolution for any printing you might want to do.

What I like about it over some of the similar camera's is the software and the design layout of the controls and the interface of the software. The buttons are nicely spaced; and the canon software has been improved to make tasks easier. It also makes light work of the seemingly endless modes the camera has by grouping them into more overall options. You can put the camera in full automatic and it will take the best photo under generic settings; you can suggest to the camera that its a backlit city night shot via the modes or switch to a manual control that lets you set aperture and shutter speed. This makes it a great option for everyone and a camera you can grow with.

There are useful modes like twilight mode which takes more stable images in low light without the need for a tripod or a flash; there are some excellent high speed capture options for photos and video - 10fps in still image and 240fps video - but not at full HD. There are some creative modes that mimic a fisheye or tilt shift lens as well. All these options led me to getting a 32gb SD Card as I found i was taking more photos on it than the sony it replaced.

The built in GPS tag's your photos or will track you as you go; this worked well in Apple's iPhoto and Aperture keeping a record of where the photos were taken as well as the GPS time the image was taken - which is great if you forget to set the clock as you travel.

I chose this camera over the Panasonic Lumix TZ30. So far I have been pleased with performance at all light levels and from wide to telephoto. Most surprised by high quality of image at 20X zoom. The camera is well built with good quality finish. The pop-up flash was a nuisance at first, but I am getting used to it. On board software is very effective at eliminating red-eye. Perhaps colours are unnaturally vivid in some situations. A RAW mode would have been good. Intuitive menus and generally good lay-out (excepting pop-up flash) make this easy to use out of the box and for more demanding use a few days play suffice to make best use. Old fashioned manual mode f8 and 1/125 second worked best for photographing craters on the moon at 20X zoom. Surprisingly little camera shake! Maybe the Lumix might have been better, but Amazon's astounding instant purchase option made this by far the better deal in terms of value for money.

How far can this size of camera go! The build quality is excellent, much more robust than my previous SX220, and the 20x optical zoom is outrageous in a camera this size. Packed full of features with manual control if you want to take over. Took it to the Isle of Man TT this year and the 10fps burst at full quality gave good results even with the bikes coming towards or going away from the camera. With a constant radius, eg in the inside of a bend, the results would've been excellent. Pop up flash is weak and only useful as a fill-in or with subjects no further than 6ft away.
The overall image quality is excellent with good natural colours and saturation SOOC. Handles grain well even at higher ISOs but a bit of purple fringing is apparent with high contrast edges. For a camera at this level and price bracket it's a great travel and everyday camera.
Not used the full hd video much but from the short clips I've done it's excellent with hardly any zoom noise.
Overall I'd strongly recommend this camera.
