Canon has posted a firmware update for its PowerShot SX280 HS digital compact camera. Version 18.104.22.168 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 22.214.171.124 or Firmware Version 126.96.36.199 through a reduction in the power consumption of the optical zoom.
2. Fixes a phenomenon with cameras running firmware version 188.8.131.52, in which the low-battery-level warning is prematurely displayed while shooting in movie mode.
