Looking for advice on purchasing a new camera.  My first digital camera was a Camedia D560.  Loved the photos I got with it, but once the kids came along it was too slow between photos to keep up with them.  My next one was Kodak Z712.  I was very happy with the response time on it, but had to manually set the ISO to 100 in order for the photos to not be grainy.  Was not as happy with the overall quality of the photos compared to the Olympus, but needed the faster response time for the kids....

Hi, my first post here, though heavy reader. I see the Canon PowerShot sx280 HS is available for $188. So is it worth spending $349 to get the newer, so-called successor sx700? My thoughts after much research: GPS For me, GPS (on the outgoing sx280, and missing on the newer sx700) would be nice to have, though not a deal breaker. Zoom The biggest attraction for the upgrade for me is the extra zoom - 30x (on the new sx700) instead of 20x (sx280). Is the extra zoom really worth it or even...

Hi everyone, I prefer  to Lumix TZ40 because a lot of review say this is the best camera to date and the price just enough for my budget. But the most important thing IF we compare to [Canon SX280 HS/Lumix L7/Galaxy camera GC100/Fujifilm F900EXR/Sony HX50V/TZ40] - which the camera is best on low light & night situation for video and picture - What about the performance when snap fast moving object like trains, f1, (blurr or static image) - How long battery life when we recording a video with...

Hey, I want to buy a new camera and I have been looking into the Canon SX280 HS and the Panasonic TZ40. Many people advise against the Canon because of a problem with the battery. Canon has tried to fix this problem with firmware updates, but many people say they still experience problems.  Now I have got my eye on the Panasonic TZ40, but I have read many topics on the internet from people who are complaining about dust getting inside the lens of their Lumix camera. Is this a problem with the...

Hello, I have been having such a difficult time trying to decide on this simple "Point and Shoot" pocket size Digital Camera. :( My current camera is that small but now a bit bulky Canon Power Shot SD600 Digital ELPH (3x zoom, 6.0 MP) which served me well. I need more zoom and decided to up grade for everyday use, shows and concert venues, Travel and family, etc. The following are important to me : 1) Zoom 2) Battery Life 3) Shake / hand stable control 4) Low Light capability 5) Price around...

Hi folks, I won a Canon SX280 HS in a Canon competition today and I will receive the camera in the next few days. I have a Canon G9 for a few years now which feels solid, takes RAW files and I use it if I want a light compact when travelling. My wife also uses it to take photos of the kids, flowers etc. By the way I have 3 DSRL and lenses so the use of a compact camera from my side is limited. My first thought was to put the SX280 on ebay 'brand new/sealed box' and spend the cash on DSLR...

Dear friends, I have just bought a new PowerShot SX280 HS, and I cannot understand how to use the built-in HDR option. Does anyone now where is the option "hidden" in the camera's menus? Thank you Ofer

Am I right in thinking that the new SX280 doesn't have stitch assist for panoramas when the older models (eg SX260) had it (even if it was buried in the SCN mode)? I certainly can't find any reference to it in the user manual that I've downloaded to compare features. I wonder why Canon would choose to remove a useful feature from an upgraded model. I'm at the stage of choosing an urgent replacement (honeymoon tomorrow!) for my old Canon G9 which has suddenly died (SD card reader...
