I still have the SX220HS, I took it to Spain and France last July and I relied on it maninly for videos as I have a DSLR to take stills. I carry a second battery with me and rarely had to use it as the SX220HS took videos as many as I wanted without any issues or any worry about the battery might die soon. I am so happy with the SX2200 HS that when the SX280 came out I was so glad to have the opportunity to upgrade, but as it failed miserablly, thank god I returned it just two days after and continue now to rely on my SX220HS.

SHAME ON YOU Canon!
Even with latest firmware (220.127.116.11) the baterry issue still persists and the camera is simply unsable.
Bought it a week ago and have to return it now. This is a complete BS!
Bye bye Canon.

The worse part is that Canon will not admit they manufactured a lemon to avoid a recall. Instead, they are sending out batteries for those who complain.
For those thinking of purchasing the SX280, DON'T!!! I kept mine thinking Canon was going to fix it and now I can't return it back. I will sending it in to Canon so I will be out of a
compact [since I have to carry 4 batteries] camera for a couple of months.
Anyone interested in buying a hardly used camera?

Don't bother to send it in to Canon. It comes back the same as it was when you sent it. They say it is fixed but it's not! Last Canon product I will ever buy.
