techradar reviewed the GPS and WiFi enabled Canon PowerShot  SX280 (price & specs). In the conclusion they write:

There’s plenty to like about the Canon SX280, but its standout feature has to be its excellent 20x optical zoom range accompanied by the well-performing digital zoom capability. Image stabilisation also does an excellent job of keeping images blur-free and making it easy to compose images too.

What we have here is an excellent and well performing compact camera that offers lots of flexibility both to beginner users and those looking for something a little more advanced.

The SX280 has a very good dynamic range:
