    Default Canon PowerShot SX280 Replacement

    I am wondering how soon an updated Canon PowerShot SX280 will come out. I love everything about this camera except the GPS "bump" on the top of the casing and its battery life. When can we expect an update to this camera? The Canon Powershot SX280 was released 30 April of last year. When can we expect an announcement? Was the SX280 announced at CES last year? Can someone please tell me to wait. Thank you.

    Considering that the SX280 was announced in March 2013 and the SX260 was announced in February 2012, I expect the new version of the camera to be announced in about March 2014. Canon recently announced the SX600, which is a compact, budget version of the SX280 but lacks a GPS and has slightly less optical zoom (18x). The SX600 also lacks a GPS but has better battery life than the SX280 so the trade-off may be worth it to you.

    Thank you very much for the informative response. I think I'll hold out a bit longer. My SD870 IS still has some leg left.
