We knew that Samsung were planning something big, but we did not know they were going to announce the release of a handful of new cameras (not the 70D) with one of them shooters being the Canon PowerShot SX280 HS. This new model comes in either black or red and has a remarkable 20x Optical Zoom lens as well as built-in Wi-Fi.
It’s clear to see by looking at the PowerShot SX280 HS specs that Canon’s main focus with this camera was its performance, because the new processor is said to help improve performance by 50 percent when compared to the SX260. If this is the case then we expect to see some impressive reviews once people begin to get their hands on the camera.
The DIGIC 6 Image processor will allow the SX280 to achieve 14FPS in HS Burst mode, although you can only do this for seven shots. However, if you wish to shoot continuously then you can do so at 3.8FPS.
Other key features that will help to give the PowerShot SX280 HS some positive reviews surely has to be the new AF system, which is said to offer a vast improvement over its predecessor. The low-level performance will also impress with up to ISO 6400, which means images can be taken with low noise while providing the highest detail.
One area that could be a concern would be the price, as the PowerShot SX280 HS will cost $329.99 once released in April. However, you have to take into consideration all the extra features Canon has incorporated in their latest SX camera. Get the full details over on the official Canon website.
