Battle of the Primes – Both compact megazoom camera are best products of Camera giants, the recently announced Canon PowerShot SX60 HS features 16.1MP High Sensitivity CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 6 Image Processor on the other hand Canon Power Shot SX50 HS features 12.1MP CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor, take a look at the Major Specification Below.
Canon PowerShot SX60 HS vs. Nikon COOLPIX P600 Specification Comparison Table.
|Canon SX60 HS||Nikon P600|
Sensor: Both the cameras feature a 16.1MP high sensitive CMOS sensor to deliver high quality images that can be further processed and cropped without loosing its quality. The CMOS type sensors acquire more light than the conventional sensors while creating images, therefore the quality of images received is comparatively high.
Optical zoom: The SX60 HS features 65X optical zoom whereas the P600 features an optical zoom range of 60X. With better zooming range the SX60 allows the user to take better quality images of subjects at a distance without taking the camera closer to the subject.
Aperture range: Both the cameras offer same aperture range of F3.4-f6.5. Better aperture range makes the user capable to control the amount of light entering the lens barrel while creating the image. While shooting at different lightning conditions it proves to be very beneficial.
Macro: The macro range of SX60 HS is 0cm which delivers excellently detailed and real life like images of the subjects which are much closer to the camera. It offers a dramatically better depth of color. Whereas the P600 offers the macro range of 1cm which offers better quality images of close objects but not as good as SX60 HS.
Image stabilization: Both the cameras offer optical image stabilization system which reduces the camera shake effect while shooting in difficult shooting conditions. While taking hand held shots Image stabilization are proved to be really helpful.
Auto focus: For quick and precise focusing, both the cameras offer a contrast detect autofocus system. Additionally the contrast detect autofocus system fine tunes the focused area in order to deliver better images. SX60 HS offers a total of 9 AF points for fast and accurate fcusing whereas, the AF points used by P600 is not specified by the manufacturer.
ISO: The P600 has a ISO range of 100-12800 which makes sure that the user must get high quality images even while working at tough lightning situations especially low lightning situation. Whereas the ISO sensitivity of SX60 HS is 100-6400.
Shutter speed: The shutter speed of P600 is 15 sec 1/4000 sec while that of SX60 HS is 15 sec 1/2000 sec. Having a fast shutter speed helps P600 in taking sharp and clear images of even fastest moving objects.
Top shooting speed: The P600 can take up to 7 continuous shots in a second while SX60 HS can take 6.4 continuous shots in a second.
Videos: With SX60 HS user can capture full HD 1080p videos @60fps. While with P600 we can take full HD 1080p, 720p, 480p videos at multiple frame rates up to 60fps.
Display: The SX60 HS comes with a 3” 922k dot Swivel LCD live time monitoring of images and playback. It can further be adjusted and rotated in many directions at many angles which makes it easy for the user to shoot in any condition. While the P600 comes with a 3” Vari-angle LCD which allows the user to adjust the screen at different angles according to the situation.
Viewfinder: Both SX60 HS and P600 are build with an electronic viewfinder which allows the photographer to monitor the subject even at the brightest conditions.
WI-FI: Both the cameras features WI-FI which allows them to connect with any iOS or Android device, for enabling wireless image sharing. The linked devices can also be used as a remote control for the camera.
Battery: P600 can takes 330 shots in one battery cycle whereas battery life of SX60 HS is not specified by the manufacturer.
Dimension: P600 is smaller than SX60 HS.
Wight: P600 weighs less than SX60 HS.
Verdict: Both camera features bit different specification to each other , the Canon features 5X more optical zoom lens and Nikon P600 features better video quality and bit better low-light sensitivity, the decision is yours.
