Smart AUTO for the PowerShot SX270 HS has been significantly expanded, making it easier than ever to capture the sharp, bright, colorful images - and videos - you're looking for. By assessing various factors in both the background and the subject, the system recognizes 58 predefined shooting situations and automatically selects the camera settings that will yield the best possible results. Simply frame the shot you want, and in dozens of common or challenging scenarios the camera takes care of the rest.
\n\nFace ID on the PowerShot SX270 HS gives you an easy way to improve every shot of the people you love. Simply take a picture of up to 12 faces you would like the camera to register, then enter names and ages. Once a person is registered, the camera will pick him or her out of a group (even against a busy background) and adjust focus and exposure to his or her face, even recognizing faces in profile. Face ID is particularly great for shots of babies and children. The system can pick your baby out of a group of children, focus on your baby when pictured with an adult, and capture the best smile by taking three successive images when the smile is detected.
\n\nNew Hybrid Auto on the PowerShot SX270 HS brings enhanced image quality to the popular Movie Digest feature on PowerShot digital cameras. Movie Digest records up to four seconds of video every time you shoot a still image, then automatically joins the clips into a video that captures the essence of special days: vacations, important occasions, any time you're shooting many shots in a day.
\n\nIt's easy to capture clear, steady images with the PowerShot SX270 HS, even in low light without using a tripod. That's because the camera is equipped with Canon's innovative Intelligent IS.

One question - would the SX280 version with the wifi and gps been worth the difference? would I have even really used them? So far I think the 270 was a good choice for me.
Pros: This is a fantastic little device. Crisp shots, nice zoom, image stabilization works incredibly well. The price on Amazon cannot be beat. The camera body is very sturdy and the screen is large and clear and functions exactly as I'd expect for a simple point and shoot. If you don't care about WiFi photo copying and GPS tagging it isn't worth upgrading to the 280 HS as the sensors and build are otherwise identical between the two devices.
Cons: Some reviews I sifted through noted that the camera does not perform all that well in darkened inside scenarios and darkens rather quickly when zooming in low light situations. This is definitely the case with this camera, but it performs quite well in normal lighting and outdoors scenarios. The auto-rising flash is also a bit irritating if you like to hold your camera with two hands. There is no HDMI or USB cable included in the box, only the battery, charger and wrist strap which is a bit of a nuisance, especially in this price range.
Great HD videos with sound. Portrait mode has great built-in color adjustments.Very fast rapid shoot - but without flash only. Zoom is very good - detail is comparable to new T3 with 250mm zoom, but jpeg compression tends to leave a lot of artifacts (and there's no RAW option).
Bad red-eye problem. Flash location is really inconvenient, right under a finger usually. EATS batteries, especially using digest function and probably rapid. Tends to go to slower shutter speed instead of using a higher ISO, so I get too many blurred pix (kids will be kids and move a lot - SPORTS option is used a lot)
Wish it had a hot shoe, remote shutter port, faster focus (especially under lower light conditions), less red-eye.
Very Impressive 20x optical zoom.
I am a loyal Amazon.ca customer and have been truly let down by a product sold by Amazon.ca. In fact, I'm so unhappy that I recommend that you purchase another camera altogether and preferably elsewhere.
units have the problem. Canon never fixed it, and if you try to have it fixed under warranty (at least in Canada),
they will send you a refurbished unit that exhibits the same problem, but may have some scratches etc (hit and miss).
You complain again, they send you another refurbished one until you give up.
Shame on Canon. Stay away from this model.
I did not purchase it from Amazon, but could not resist to put my 2 cents. It is better when taking only pictures but not as
good as its predecessor SX230, which has inferior specs.

Actually bought this because My Canon Rebel T1 was a bit big to carry around, wanted something to fit in my purse, and my friend had a powershot that did better close up pictures... Read morePublished on July 28 2014 by Mylene Bruneau
