Canon has posted a firmware update for its PowerShot SX280 HS digital compact camera. Version 1.0.2.0 incorporates the following fixes and improvements:

1. Increases the duration of movie shooting by 20% in cases where the optical zoom is used compared to cameras running Firmware Version 1.0.0.0 or Firmware Version 1.0.1.0 through a reduction in the power consumption of the optical zoom.

2. Fixes a phenomenon with cameras running firmware version 1.0.0.0, in which the low-battery-level warning is prematurely displayed while shooting in movie mode.

This is awesome, and works beautifully. I found out about the firmware through a review I read - the pictures she's taken are pretty awesome actually, I was surprised - hope I can get some even slightly close! I saw it here: http://www.squidoo.com/how-to-take-really-foxy-photos... do I put that in the URL or here? Oh well - it's in both :) Thanks for the firmware, perfect.

I went to that site too Kate, bought my camera through it as I got 20% off (it's through Amazon - great place to buy a camera). I loved her photos, and I've been taking a bunch myself... of squirrels. Not very exciting but the pics look great esp in low light.

This firmware updated did not work for me. My camera now shuts off when i try to zoom in while taking video!
