Canon has posted a firmware update for its PowerShot SX280 HS digital compact camera. Version 188.8.131.52 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 184.108.40.206 or Firmware Version 220.127.116.11 through a reduction in the power consumption of the optical zoom.
2. Fixes a phenomenon with cameras running firmware version 18.104.22.168, in which the low-battery-level warning is prematurely displayed while shooting in movie mode.
