Super-Charged, Ready to Share
The PowerShot SX280 HS is a super-charged SX-series model featuring Canon's very latest proprietary processor, the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, for improved performance and exceptional clarity in low-light scenarios. The camera makes it easy to show off your high quality images and video wherever you are, with enhanced built-in Wi-Fi technology that lets you share photos with comments on social networking sites - even within specific groups. Capture everything from quick snaps to artistic images with a powerful 20x Optical Zoom and 25mm Wide-Angle lens, with Optical Image Stabilizer to reduce blur throughout the zoom range. Even low-light images impress with the Canon HS SYSTEM: a combination of a 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor and the new DIGIC 6 Image Processor. Preserve memories in ultra-smooth 1080p/60p Full HD video with the amazing processing power of the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, which also enables enhanced Dynamic IS for reduced blur, plus video recording in the easy-to-share MP4 format. The camera also gives you access to extraordinary imaging capabilities with Smart AUTO that recognizes 58 predefined scenes, Face ID that adjusts focus and exposure for your loved ones, and Intelligent IS that dramatically reduces camera shake. New Hybrid Auto creates an optimized "highlight reel" of your day, while built-in GPS records the location and local time, making the PowerShot SX280 HS a perfect travel camera, ready to share the spectacular images you'll capture!

Features

  • Built-in Wi-Fi technology allows you to wirelessly transfer your images to social networking sites through CANON iMAGE GATEWAY; to a PC or upload virtually anywhere on your iOS or Android device with the free download of the Canon CameraWindow app.
  • Canon's powerful 20x Optical Zoom and 25mm Wide-Angle lens with Optical Image Stabilizer delivers stunning images from up close or at a distance.
  • 12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor combined with the new DIGIC 6 Image Processor creates the Canon HS SYSTEM for improved low-light performance up to ISO 6400 and enhanced image quality.
  • Capture 1080p/60p Full HD video for high-quality capture of moving subjects.
  • Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper camera settings based on 58 predefined shooting situations and Face ID function adjusts focus and exposure priority based on pre-registered faces.
  • New Hybrid Auto utilizes a combination of Smart AUTO and Intelligent IS to create a beautiful and steady 720p HD video clip (up to approximately 4 seconds) in Movie Digest mode every time you shoot a still image.
  • Intelligent IS automatically chooses from six different modes to optimize image stabilization for the shooting condition.
  • Remember where you were and when your photos were taken with a GPS tracker that records your location, and a logger lets you view the locations on a map using Canon software.

4 out of 5 stars   Good for general family use.
By wbs (Kalamazoo, MI) December 09, 2013
Review submitted for Canon PowerShot SX280 HS Black Digital Camera 16GB Pro Pack (E3SNDSCHX200V)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: 16x Zoom Is A Plus, Less Bulky Than The Sx160
Cons: Flash location, Flash Is Where Cam Held, Flash Pops Up Automatical
Other Comments: Flash location is often under a finger holding the camera. Would prefer that the flash did not automatically pop up in dim light. Hasn't been used long enough to comment on battery life. Used mainly for candid shots of family/grandchildren, and my wife likes to look at the Pxs on the camera often. Far more features than we will ever use. Seems to have a rather quick recovery time between shots. Picture resolution is fine for our home use. Neither of us are serious photographers. Seems to be a fine replacement for the SX160 IS, which was stolen. Have had camera 1 month and so far we are quite satisfied.

Verified Purchaser
Pros: Options, Rapid Pictures, Picture Quality
Cons:
Other Comments: This camera was a gift for my wife to replace and old point and shoot. We have a young child that does not always look when we want her to. This camera allows us to be ready to shoot multiple images and select the best one, all the while maintaining great quality photos. The video option is great and shoots a clear sharp video. Action shots are great for our older children in sports. No complaints.

By Yankee boy (NY,NY) September 14, 2012
Review submitted for Canon PowerShot SX280 HS Black Digital Camera 16GB Pro Pack (E3SNDSCHX200V)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Love The Zoom Capability, Very sharp images, Easy to Hold
Cons:
Other Comments: I love this camera. Easy to handle, and takes sharp images even when the lens is extended.The only problem I had was trying to use a fill-in flash in daylight on overcast days.I switched to the twilight setting, which wasn't always the best option, but maybe I just haven't figured out an easier way to access the fill-in flash option that I was used to on my point and shoot. On the whole, I am extremely happy with this camera.
