Canon PowerShot SX280 HS (Black)
4 Star Review  cnet.com - Jun 20, 2013

THE GOOD: The <b>Canon PowerShot SX280 HS</b> has shooting modes for every type of photographer from casual to advanced; a useful long zoom lens with excellent image stabilization; and overall excellent photo and video quality for a compact megazoom. THE BAD: Battery life is short, especially if you use the Wi-Fi and GPS features or movie capture. The flash isnt in a great location, and there are no easy panorama or HDR shooting options. THE BOTTOM LINE: Wi-Fi connectivity and a new processor help make Canons PowerShot SX280 HS one of the top compact megazooms available. But youd better load up on batteries.

Amazing--best small camera around!
5 Star Review   By Dave from Florida on Adorama - Nov 14, 2013   

Bought this one from Adorama and absolutely love it. I do professional and pro-amateeur photography, and needed a small, backup camera. It is difficult to carry my Canon with 4 lenses, accessories, etc all the time, and cell phone cameras just don't have the image quality. I tried a four thirds system, and the image quality just didm;t cut it, as well as not being substantially lighter than the DSLR. Now, I use the big rig for times when I have my car around, and use the SX 280 as a "walk about" camera. The focal range is incredible, as is image quality for a compact camera. Don't believe the reviews with bad battery life--I bought extra batteries, but haven't had to do a "change in the field." Adorama was sensational with customer service. If you want a compact camera with a wide to telephoto range that has superb image quality, BUY THIS ONE!!

Does Everything Well
4 Star Review   By Woodface on Adorama - Nov 12, 2013   

I like to travel light, as a camera should record your travels, not impede them. I chose this based on the price and usability - past experience of Canon build and lens quality reassured. I haven't been disappointed by how quickly it is ready to capture whatever is going on - from parties to wildlife to landscapes. Results are as good as I need for my display and prints. Low light shooting is the only area it doesn't excel, as you'd expect with this spec. Video quality is surprisingly good for our occasional use.

GREAT CAMERA FOR VIDEO CAPTURE AND ZOOM
5 Star Review   By Magic Train World Creator on Adorama - Jun 18, 2013   

I shoot nature and people photos plus film railroad activities. I was able to use the zoom while in video mode without loosing focus, even in handheld mode. And price from Adormaa was great plus fast shipping. To me, this is the ideal camera to keep with

Great Camera!
4 Star Review   By CS Love my pics on Adorama - May 7, 2013   

I walk at lunch a lot. I take the camera with me always. This week I got both pictures and video of baby geese, and some great pictures of a chimney swift, and of course all the beautiful spring flowers. This camera takes great pictures! There are only 2
