It also comes down to what you expect from the SX600 HS. And if one compares his expectations before making a purchase, you will be satisfied with this Canon.
Canon typical processing quality at a high level and good is located, and at a relatively cheap price. Here agrees the relation of performance to price.
The sensor is glücklerweise without pixel error and the display also. We had already had much more expensive cameras that had pixel error either on the sensor and / or on the display - this we no longer in use, the SX600 HS with us still.
Likewise, Canon is typically the menu and consistently clear user interface. But Canon newcomers find their way quickly.
We have now for about a month always in use, but usually in bright light, and then you also get beautiful photos in a neat picture quality. And that was, among other things, our expectations.
Of course, even videos with the digicam be filmed. Our focus was and is, but primarily in the photo functions, so we have not pursued this issue.
The image quality is primarily in bright light well - here quickly and easily succeed good image results. And even in unfavorable light conditions succeed quite acceptable to good photos if you because this takes a little time - but this depends of course from being photographed motif from. You can not always take your time or take the time until the result fits or abzulichtende subject is in the desired position.

And then only with a tripod (the thread for this is fortunately quite lunch provided on the bottom) - manage snapshots at open-air concerts and concerts, if then, as already indicated with (some) patience - time when a snapshot is usually unfortunately just does not have. But this was certainly before us aware yet but we wanted to just try yourself. With a lot of trying out one learns best know the camera. And if it comes down to it, the snapshot falls not only lighter, but the result can usually be seen. Disappointments remain luckily the exception rather.
Included with the SX600 HS, the well-known by many other Canon models Li-ion Battery Pack NB-6LH is 1060 mAh and 4.0 Wh. A memory card is not in, as it is no longer the case for many years. This is easy to get over, you have in most cases has yet usually a sufficient amount of memory cards at home - and the mitglieferten memory cards usually had only alibi even 32 MB ...
Although the Canon PowerShot SX600 HS is not done equally well for all lighting conditions, but it can be said that it is quite versatile. And it is also about all ages of time used, which can not claim any digital camera itself.
Depending on the Canon PowerShot SX600 Erwarungshaltung HS is ideal not only for beginners. Subject to these considerations, in our view a recommendation to buy, if your expectations so that (mostly) covers.
