Preserve memories in ultra-smooth 1080p/60p Full HD video with the amazing processing power of the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, which also enables enhanced Dynamic IS for reduced blur, plus video recording in the easy-to-share MP4 format. The camera also gives you access to extraordinary imaging capabilities with Smart AUTO that recognizes 58 predefined scenes, Face ID that adjusts focus and exposure for your loved ones, and Intelligent IS that dramatically reduces camera shake. New Hybrid Auto creates an optimized "highlight reel" of your day, while built-in GPS## records the location and local time, making the PowerShot SX280 HS a perfect travel camera, ready to share the spectacular images you'll capture!
