With the PowerShot SX260 HS digital camera, capturing trips and special occasions with a high-quality video "highlights reel" is as easy as switching on the Movie Digest feature. When activated, the feature automatically records the four seconds before each still shot as video, then auto-edits them into a short movie. Played back together, the video clips capture the mood and ambiance of special days in a way that’s completely different from still images, both documenting the creation of still images and providing a unique stand-alone memory preserver. New with the PowerShot SX260 HS, the video is captured in 720p high definition so that it looks smooth and beautifully detailed when played back on your HDTV. With bundled software ImageBrowser EX, you can easily delete any scenes you don't want.
Not for computer challenged
Read with interest some negative reviews. This is a computer that makes pictures and video. TiP: this camera can do a tremendous number of things, but many won't be important to you. Decide what is and works with those. Ignore the rest and the 220+ manual won't overwhelm you.
I used if for the first time in Kenya and allowed the camera to automatically make the "best exposure" decisions. It made the right call 90% of the time and I'm a professional videographer.
The video was good but rapid movement on any camera in this price range is going to have some issues. My video was good within normal usage.
Bottom line: read the manual, practice with it, find out what it can do and I think you'll be thrilled. A great camera for the price.

Blurry Photos and Videoa
I have this camera and am so disappointed. I rarely get a good photo and have never gotten a good video. This camera was a waste of money. Videos are NOT crisp - photos are NOT crisp. 99.9% of all photos and videos I have taken look blurry. Backgrounds are always burs.
