A lot of people complain about the flash location of the SX260. Is it that bad? Will it be changed with the SX280?

Everyone who uses it the first time blocks the flash. Usually one-trial learning.

This camera is high level camera as same other company's product, the flush is on the same place, the best position. We may use to hold camera as if it is low level one, which do not have flush light. For hold Sx260 as the book indicated the way to hold it. I only practice twice and have no problem now.

It's not that bad... I don't really mind its location. It pops automatically, so that's very handy too.

Yes. I always press that corner when the flash tries to pop up. It ends up with second try to make it.

It's not at a bad location, but the camera is so thin that there is no place to put your finger on the top left hand side of the camera without the flash hitting your finger when it pops up. If that happens and the flash does not completely extend, you get a message to turn the camera off, then turn it back on.

You need to do that so that the flash will retract back into the camera, because you can't take a flash picture with the flash in its partially raised state. see less It's not at a bad location, but the camera is so thin that there is no place to put your finger on the top left hand side of the camera without the flash hitting your finger when it pops up.

It doesn't bother me at all. It will come up & you just move your fingers. I've only done it once & I just hold it different.

It was annoying at first, because it pops up where I'm used to putting a finger. After a couple weeks, I got used to it, and it really doesn't bother me now.

The first couple of times I used the camera I did accidentally block the flash from popping up, because you tend to naturally put your finger over that spot. But once you discover that, it's not hard to remember to hold the camera differently. It's not a big deal, in any event.

I haven't had my camera that long but I do forget about the flash popping up and I usually have my finger on it when it does. It is a bit annoying just because I can never remember to not hold my finger over that spot. I so love the pics that this camera takes. Just got back my first prints and they turned out great… see more I haven't had my camera that long but I do forget about the flash popping up and I usually have my finger on it when it does.

I still love it even though the flash is in a dumb location. see less I haven't had my camera that long but I do forget about the flash popping up and I usually have my finger on it when it does.
