Core specs:
  • 12.1MP High-Sensitivity CMOS Sensor
  • DIGIC 6 Image Processor
  • 20x Optical Zoom Lens
  • 35mm Focal Length Equivalent: 25-500mm
  • 3.0″ LCD Monitor
  • Full HD 1080p Video Capture at 60fps
  • Built-in Wi-Fi Connectivity
  • Intelligent Optical Image Stabilization
  • Hybrid Auto Mode
  • GPS Tracker

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.

It would also be a good camera for anybody looking to learn a little more about photography, since you could start on the fully automatic settings and work your way through the manual options.

The SX280 has a very good dynamic range:

Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD Lens Review (dpreview)

Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8

This is definitely an interesting lens that offers value for the money. The image stabilized Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD lens (price & specs), with a price tag of $1,299, got a very good review by dpreview. They write:

Overall, we’re extremely impressed with the Tamron 24-70mm F/2.8 VC. It demonstrates that it’s entirely possible to add an effective image stabilization system to a lens of this type without a significant drop in quality elsewhere. The optics are excellent, the autofocus fast, silent and accurate, and the build quality very good indeed.

Overall the Tamron comes so close to the much more expensive non-stabilized Canon and Nikon lenses, both optically and operationally, that it’s difficult to see why most enthusiast photographers might choose to buy them instead.

Be sure to check out the samples gallery.
