Product Details

Capture those precious moments with the Canon Powershot SX280 digital camera.

With beautiful pictures and movies made simple, the camera hosts a 12.1 megapixel resolution with 20x zoom so you can achieve the detail without any compromise. Canon's HS system excels in low light allowing you to capture the real atmosphere of the moment without flash or tripod. Whether you're at a party, on holiday or at home, the Powershot SX280 puts the fun in capturing photographs and videos, and its compact design certainly helps with portability.

The Canon Powershot SX280 camera puts its main focus on style and performance, delivering exceptional results with more room in the frame thanks to the 25mm ultra wide-angle lens. Intelligent Image Stabiliser technology combats camera shake to ensure all your photos and videos are sharp and detailed even at full zoom or in low light. It automatically adjusts the optical IS to the scene from multiple modes to prevent blur. Enhanced Dynamic IS ensures steady and realistic movies by powerfully compensating for a much wider range of user movements.

Instantly record high quality HD movies by simply pressing the dedicated movie button. And with Smart Auto technology, the Canon SX280 can choose the camera's optimum settings that detect the scene and automatically selects the optimal settings from 58 variables (21 in movies) for great results.
