Canon PowerShot SX280 HS - For the PowerShot SX280 HS, Canon's new top compact megazoom, it's all about the processor. Compared with its predecessor, the SX260 HS, the SX280 shares the same 20x, f3.5-6.8, 25-500mm lens and 12-megapixel backside-illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor camera.
Joining them, however, is an all-new Digic 6 image processor. For low-light shooters, this is an important update, as it allows for less noise in pictures taken at higher ISOs. How much less? Canon claims the noise at ISO 1600 on the SX280 is equivalent to what you'd get at ISO 400 with the SX260.

According to Engadget, During they hands-on, they quickly noticed the PowerShot SX280 HS significant speed boost -- it's 50 percent faster than its predecessor when it comes to focusing and shutter lag, and it definitely shows. The Burst HQ mode was also quite impressive, though you're unfortunately limited to just seven consecutive shots. The camera has a solid feel, though it's not terribly heavy.
A very slim pop-up flash on the top, compact dedicated mode dial on the rear and a slightly extended front grip help to distinguish this model from lesser-equipped point-and-shoots, though both the red and black matte finishes convey a premium look on their own.
