Canon PowerShot SX280 HS 12.1 MP CMOS Digital Camera
The PowerShot SX280 HS is Canon's new top-of-the-line compact ultrazoom camera. Though it retains the same 20x zoom lens and excellent image stabilization of its predecessor, there have been some fairly major updates. The biggest change can be found internally, as the SX280 HS now sports Canon's latest DIGIC 6 image processor. Canon's claims of improved operational speed can be felt in how responsive the SX280 is, including autofocus that is now more than 50% faster than it was on the SX260. The SX280 HS also receives an upgrade to 1080/60p video capture, as well as the addition of WiFi connectivity. Though using of any of those features shortens battery life considerably, the SX280 is an impressive camera all around.
