Re: SX280 - battery life shooting video

I wonder if Canon have not already washed their hands on that issue.?  Kind of indirectly saying: "Tough Luck"

Re: SX280 - battery life shooting video

   I don't think there has been a Canon response since the firmware update came out.  They essentially said at that time the problem was fixed.  New Powershots have been announced so I doubt there is much concern about an "old" camera like the SX-280.  And yes, the same problem exists in the SX-270. 

    While the new G16 sounds good I'm sure not going to be an early adopter.  Same thing goes for the EOS 70D.  If you have to have a camera like the SX-280 and are interested in video I'd suggest the SX-260, which takes excellent video.  If you need WiFi, GPS and the bells and whistles plus video take a look at the ZS30.

Re: SX280 - battery life shooting video

I really don't understand why CANON doens't fix that IMPORTANT ERROR. I see that SX280HS it will by always connected to that fiasco....

If a purchaser had NO ISSUES with the sx280- they would be happily using the camera- and would NOT POST HERE!

Re: SX280 - battery life shooting video

Check out the reviews on Amazon.  The latest two still complain about the battery warning light problem among other things

Re: SX280 - battery life shooting video

I also bought mine last week on Canon.  Because the camera cames with 1.0.1 firmware i have made the update,  so i think is a camera built before the May update. So all the 280SX have this problem.....
