Turning to its back is the 3 inch touch display LCD monitor with 1.04-million-dots that can be titled to up to 180 degrees for those selfies and to find better viewing angles.
The G7 X’s lens is composed of five lens groups that include three aspherical lens elements, enabling high optical resolving performance throughout the entire zoom range, plus a macro photography feature with a minimum focusing distance (wide-angle end) of 5 cm.
Finally, we have the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS. The camera comes with a 16.1MP high-sensitivity sensor powered by Canon’s DIGIC 6 image processor, made for high quality stills and videos. And then there’s the High Speed Auto Focus that lets you shoot burst shots at a rate of 6.4fps. Videos shot with the SX60 HS has a maximum resolution of 1080p at a full 60fps.
But probably the main selling point of the new PowerShot SX60 HS is it’s zoom capabilities.
