5.0 out of 5 stars Great little camera
Bought the red version of the Canon SX260. Takes great pictures, even with the 20x optical zoom and the 80X digital zoom (essentially turns into a 3 megapixel camera). Image stabilization works well in low light and during videos. The one I received did have a noticeable airy sound with a small high pitched squeal when I took a video in a very quiet environment (not...

3.0 out of 5 stars Ease of use
This camera holds up as a good minimum quality camera. Easy to just point and shoot and keep high res as well as great colored photos. Zoom is great even going as bit farther than 20x, but it will get more distorted. Worth the cost.

This review is from: Canon PowerShot SX280 HS 12.1 MP CMOS Digital Camera with 20x Image Stabilized Zoom 25mm Wide-Angle Lens and 1080p Full-HD Video (Red) Super Bundle- Includes camera, 16 GB SDHC Memory Card, BP-6L Battery Pack, Carrying Case, SD USB Card Reader, Mini Tab (Electronics)
Bought the red version of the Canon SX260. Takes great pictures, even with the 20x optical zoom and the 80X digital zoom (essentially turns into a 3 megapixel camera). Image stabilization works well in low light and during videos. The one I received did have a noticeable airy sound with a small high pitched squeal when I took a video in a very quiet environment (not manipulating the camera in any way). I would guess that the automatic gain on the mic was a bit too aggressive. I had read about this in other reviews, so checked it out. I happened to be in S. CA shortly after I received the camera, so took it into the Canon service center in Irvine, not knowing what to expect. The clerk checked out the camera, and after some discussion and the technician checking it out, offered to send me a new one from their customer center on the east coast. I was hoping that it would not have the same problem. It arrived 2 days later, and the video mic works excellently.

I and my family have owned several Canon cameras from point and shoots up to more expensive Rebels and 60D, and this one continues the tradition of giving excellent pictures (and now videos).

4.0 out of 5 stars Canon Power, June 11, 2012

This review is from: Canon PowerShot SX280 HS 12.1 MP CMOS Digital Camera with 20x Image Stabilized Zoom 25mm Wide-Angle Lens and 1080p Full-HD Video (Red) Super Bundle- Includes camera, 16 GB SDHC Memory Card, BP-6L Battery Pack, Carrying Case, SD USB Card Reader, Mini Tab (Electronics)
I have the camera for about a month now and I'm just getting used to it. Overall the camera is okay. I'm getting the feel of it. However, the two things I don't like is the awkward placing of the flash. The flash gets in the way. The other thing I don't like about the camera is the view mode. When you exit the view mode, the camera turns off automatically. I like the zoom feature. It's a good purchase. So far I don't regret purchasing the camera.

I absolutely LOVE this camera!!! If you're looking for a small, compact camera with high quality and a low price tag, you definitely need to consider this one!!!! It takes crystal clear pictures!!! Even when zoomed in all the way the quality is still pretty good!!! The video feature is awesome!!! The sound is very clear!! The color of the body of the camera is a really pretty pink-red color (I think more pink) It's small enough to throw in your purse for the woman on the go!!! You will NOT be disappointed with this camera!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great features, extended zoom, and virtually no Shutter Lag, December 26, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon PowerShot SX280 HS 12.1 MP CMOS Digital Camera with 20x Image Stabilized Zoom 25mm Wide-Angle Lens and 1080p Full-HD Video (Red) Super Bundle- Includes camera, 16 GB SDHC Memory Card, BP-6L Battery Pack, Carrying Case, SD USB Card Reader, Mini Tab (Electronics)
The camera comes with a nice assortment of add-ons and trinkets, but the real joy is in using the camera. For a small increase in size, it has features of both a great camera and a very good video recorder. Shutter lag is almost non-existent and recycle time for the flash is also faster that other cameras, and the zoom (20x optical) is better than the competition. Beats the Nikon pocketable cameras I've owned and given.

I bought this one for myself after getting one for my friend. We both love the small size and great photo capabilities. I love taking it on my vacations. The 20X zoom is wonderful. No more huge cameras and long lenses.

I live on a farm and love to take pictures of my new born animals and wildlife, the zoom lets me take nice close pictures without disturbing mamas.

The Canon Poweshot series is amazing for a point and click camera. I purchased the SX220 and everyone that saw my photos wanted one... they continue to upgrade to the next level... so far my sister has the SX230 and loves it... and 3 co-workers have purchased the SX230 & SX260 and also love them. This was for my daughter and she loves it!
