Re: Is there a next sx280 model?

I'm not sure, either. Canon's inclusion of a 30x zoom and a higher-MP sensor are clear attempts to follow the newest successors in its class... but the lack of GPS plus higher min and lower max ISO are notable steps backward. The different model nomenclature muddies things even further.

On a personal note, I'm afraid Canon has probably sacrificed image quality for the sake of marketing numbers, as 16 MP on a sensor that small will, as I understand it, produce images that seem flatter than the sx280's 12MP. Would rather have had Canon work on improving image quality with a 20x max, throwing the s120's HDR feature into the mix, maybe even moving up to a bigger sensor... something different than the current crop of mediocre 30x travelzooms we're seeing out of Sony, Panasonic, and now Canon.
