Built-in Wi-Fi technology allows you to wirelessly transfer your images to social networking sites through CANON iMAGE GATEWAY#; to a PC or upload virtually anywhere on your iOS or AndroidTM device with the free download of the Canon CameraWindow app.

Canon's powerful 20x Optical Zoom and 25mm Wide-Angle lens with Optical Image Stabilizer delivers stunning images from up close or at a distance.

12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor combined with the new DIGIC 6 Image Processor creates the Canon HS SYSTEM for improved low-light performance up to ISO 6400 and enhanced image quality.

Capture 1080p/60p Full HD video for high-quality capture of moving subjects.

Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper camera settings based on 58 predefined shooting situations and Face ID function adjusts focus and exposure priority based on pre-registered faces.

New Hybrid Auto utilizes a combination of Smart AUTO and Intelligent IS to create a beautiful and steady 720p HD video clip (up to approximately 4 seconds) in Movie Digest mode every time you shoot a still image.

Intelligent IS automatically chooses from six different modes to optimize image stabilization for the shooting condition.

Remember where you were and when your photos were taken with a GPS tracker that records your location, and a logger lets you view the locations on a map using Canon software.

1 out of 5 eggsNo focus, bad service

This review is from: Canon Powershot SX280 HS 8225B001 Red 12.1 MP 20X Optical Zoom 25mm Wide Angle Digital Camera HDTV Output

Pros: Not much

Cons: I've owned about 6 Powershots. This one was out of focus for about half the photos and videos from day one. I pre-ordered it because I wanted to have it for my vacation in Cancun. But I had to throw away about halve the photos and videos because they were too blurry.
I sent the camera in and they just sent me an E-mail that they were going to exchange my "new" hardly used camera with a used one. I called them to complain, but they told me that that's they way they do things. Also, the used camera has the same serial number sequence that has problems. But I'm not supposed to worry because this camera has will have a 3 month warranty.

What a rip off. To top it off, the camera is a lot cheaper now.

This review is from: Canon Powershot SX280 HS 8225B001 Red 12.1 MP 20X Optical Zoom 25mm Wide Angle Digital Camera HDTV Output

Pros: GPS, WiFi

Cons: Charged battery, installed battery, powered on: "lens error, will shutdown automatically, restart camera"

Defective right out of the box.

Other Thoughts: Have had a string of PowerShot cameras, all good until this one.
