The Canon SX280 is truly a feature packed compact zoom camera, with a 20x optical zoom, wi-fi and GPS. Canon upgraded their processor over the previous model--a big change meaning better low light images and a faster burst speed of 14 fps (up to seven shots) or 3.8 fps continuous shooting. The SX280 shines for speed and features. Images are shot with a 1/2.3" CMOS sensor and f3.5-6.8 lens, which is around average for the price and category.
