This camera so far has been really nice. The 20X zoom, image stabilization and 12 megapixels is great. I read reviews where the battery does not last long, but I have not had this issue. Of course I have GPS and wireless turned off, because anyone with a cell phone knows when those items are turned on your batter life gets depleted fast since it is always searching for satellites and wireless servers. I had to remove 1 start because for me personally the power button should have been on the back of the camera instead of on top. When putting the camera in the case I have a tendency to push the button in. Same goes for the flash, it should be in the middle because like most you have a tendency to hold the corners. Short of that its a great little point and shoot camera.

This camera had everything that I was looking for: small in size, excellent zoom, fast shutter speed, fast continuous burst shooting, high ISO, nice 3" screen with good resolution, high megapixel images, 1080p video recording and image stabilization. It also has GPS and Wi-Fi, but I have not used those features yet. I looked for many weeks and was not able to find a camera that had all of these features until I found this one. Most cameras would have some of these options, but lack other options. I also considered DSLR's but from experience with family and friends, the pictures they took were not worth the extra $1,000 or more (for camera and lenses), plus having to carry around a large bag for all of the DSLR equipment. The differences may be important to a professional photographer, but for most people the SX280 will be more than sufficient. It easily fits in a pocket or purse and takes excellent shots and I would highly recommend it.

Walmart had the best price at the time, but Amazon has met the on line price. The camera was delivered as promised. I have had a few problems with the WiFi setup as my laptop was running Windows XP and the WiFi function requires windows 7 or 8. So, I have now upgraded to Windows 7 but have not achieved WiFi connection. Still working on it. I purchased the SanDisk Ultra Memory to insure a fast write speed and it works VERY WELL. I have much to learn about this new camera, but I am looking forward to it.

We've only had it for a few weeks, but so far we're in love with this camera. The zoom shots are clear and the camera is easy to use.
