    I bought this camera for its portability and for its zoom capability. This will be with me at all times as it fits so easily into my pocket or purse. I am very pleased with the image quality so far. I am not sure I will use the wireless feature as I am a non-techy grandma in that area. But I find the camera easy to use as it is similar enough to my my G1 X.

    Returning This Canon

    I have owned Canon cameras for more than 35 years. I currently have the Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 6D and a couple of L lenses, plus an older SD780 IS pocket camera. I am returning the Canon PowerShot SX280 camera, which I just received yesterday (after researching the category for a week). The Canon PowerShot SX280 is great optically (but not that much superior to the competition) and has a lot of great features, including the high movie resolution (but the battery won't hold out long enough for you to take full advantage of it), but a nightmare in far too many ways: a pop-up flash that hits your fingers and causes you to have to shut down the camera and start it again; a wi-fi connection that takes a genius to make work (I couldn't); and a really negligent battery situation that Canon has had a boatload of complaints about. This is a defective design, but they keep putting this camera out there anyway. I am going to get the Panasonic Lumix ZS30, which I should have purchased instead and would have had it not been my loyalty to Canon (though for macro and wide angle lenses, I go for Tokina). For $120 more, it is a no brainer, since it would cost me more than that in time and aggravation to deal with this badly designed and executed Canon SX280. Canon makes a bewildering array of point-and-shoot cameras. Perhaps they should make fewer models and concentrate on making several of the them better cameras. B & H has already sent me the return shipping label and will credit my account.

    Comments about PowerShot SX280 HS Digital Camera (Red):

    Use it for travel and casual family and friend events. Good quality shots and even some great shots with high intensity theatrical lighting using the manual mode to set the shutter speed and aperture. Used it a pro football game and the zoom was excellent and the speed fast for action shots and even at an indoor pro hockey game.One thing not so great is when the flash position. When it popped up in auto mode my fingers were sometimes covering the flash and had to cycle the camera to recover. Like that it included a separate battery charger as in other reviews I had read it gives little to no warning that the battery empty. Always have two batteries with this camera. The separate charger is great that you can use the camera while charging the other battery instead of having to plug the entire camera in to charge the battery loosing the ability to actually use the camera while it is charging.Nice and surprisingly adequate camera when not wanting to lug around my full size DSLR.

    It is easy to use.

    Really great zoom.
    unfortunately after my previous experience with G7 model, the quality of the image is not the one I'm used to. If you don't care too much about the quality of the image - go on, it is almost perfect. I'll be back to the G series model.

          Comments about PowerShot SX280 HS Digital Camera (Black):

          I was looking to replace my Canon Powershot ELPH 330 when I found this camera. I wanted a small to mid-size camera with good image quality and superior zoom length. My old Canon ELPH was a excellent camera and this Canon Powershot SX280HS improved in a few ways. First the low-light ability is improved, I found I was taking good images under less than desirable lighting conditions. Second, the image stabilization is improved, when focused all the way out the image tends to get bouncy with other point and shoots without a tripod and the Canon Powershot SX280-HS has reduced shake to a minimum. Image quality also improved with the Canon DIGIC 6 system and the zoom length is incredible for a camera this small. The Canon SX280HS feels good in your hands without feeling heavy and is well balanced and a nice looking device as well. It supports high quality shots as well as HD video and Wi-Fi and GPS capability.

          Comments about PowerShot SX280 HS Digital Camera (Black):

          I mostly take pictures of nature, most of them of birds. I needed a camera fast enough to take many pictures, with high sensitivity (for dark places), good picture quality and the highest optical zoom possible (without getting ridiculous).
          I compared a lot of brands and models trying to get the best ratio between price, quality, functionality and zoom (I didn't have that much money). I finally bought this one, having tested a Panasonic lumix DMC-ZS25 –didn't like it-.

          I have already taken the camera to a national park in Chile, through my city, and in trekking excursions. The colors are great. I used to have other Powershot that worked just fine, with the same MP (12.1), but this one clearly has a better sensor, because the quality is way better. The zoom gets to 20x fast, and it has very little lag between shots. The exposure, contrast or color balance hasn't been an issue.

          Only two cons so far: first, in very difficult shots the camera will focus anything but your target. Since I sometimes try to photograph a 5 cm long bird hidden in the foliage, it's not that rare. Second, the battery could last a little more. I don't use either wifi or GPS. If I restrain myself from recording fullHD videos, the batteries have a good duration. I bought two spare batteries and it was worth it.
          I personally recommend it to anyone with reduce budget, not interested in "family" and "nice" features, don't like touch screens – or doesn't mind its absence-, but want a fast and good quality camera for spare time, work and/or studies.
          (English isn't my native language... so, sorry if I misspelled or made a writing mistake).

                Nice P & S for taking everywhere. I bought this for my wife who wanted something easy to handle.This camera has a decent amount of features and is very easy to use.The jpegs are surprisingly good. The only disappointment is taking video. The battery runs out very quickly. I think this is a known problem so hopefully Canon will have a firmware fix.other than that this is a nice camera to use.

                Light and compact with 20X zoom. Fast to focus, produces sharp bright pictures.
                One not so good thing - is flash location. It takes time to stop keeping your fingers on the left top corner of the camera to let flash to be moved up out of the camera body.

                Though it was a bit over $, this camera takes great shots... crisp & clear with a nice zoom capability. I'd highly recommend it for people like me who have an interest in taking quality photos but don't want to be bothered with heavy equipment.

                  This is a handy camera to travel with, as it is as small as a camera could be
                  and still have so many useful features. The unusually long telephoto is a
                  great bonus. It is easy to use, and I haven't found any drawbacks. The red
                  color will make it harder to accidentally leave it somewhere.

                    I replaced a Panasonic ZS7 with this SX280.

                    Noticed right off that the battery life (especially using video) is really bad. My Panasonic battery life seemed to last forever.


                    I'm really disappointed.. and would not recommend this camera to anyone.

                    in my opinion it makes very clear images better then the sx260.

                    I like the feel of this camera. It is heavy enough that it feels like you have a real piece of equipment. But not so heavy that it weights you down. As usual I am pleased with my choice of Canon.

                        My husband has never been able to get a crisp shot. With the SX280, every shot is clear! Even when I take a shot out the car window while he's driving; crisp and clear! Impressed with it. Sure, not as good as my DSLR, but they're great for a little point & shoot that fits in a shirt pocket. Works well while snowshoeing at -30C too.

                          This is not my beloved Canon S90 with its oversized sensor, but it does have a 20x zoom which I love and use often for framing those impossible shots, including (in our neighborhood) many birds. The SD card—a separate purchase—is as fast as my finger can push the button. I'd recommend the combo to anyone looking for a handy, simple, effective pocket camera.
