The PowerShot SX280 HS digital camera is equipped with Global Positioning System (GPS)## technology. Now you can travel the world and let the camera automatically record the location and local time of your stills and videos. The camera can also use the GPS unit to automatically set the exact time. You can maximize the usefulness of the GPS feature by using the special bundled Map Utility software that makes it fun to share the memories of your world adventures. In addition to displaying all your photos' locations on a world map, the camera's GPS system can also track your route from photo to photo a great way to visualize each trip! You can also create and share custom maps and personal mini-travel guides with friends and family members.
## In certain countries and regions, the use of GPS may be restricted. Therefore, be sure to use GPS in accordance with the laws and regulations of your country or region. Be particularly careful when traveling outside your home country. As a signal is received from GPS satellites, take sufficient measures when using in locations where the use of electronics is regulated.
Worst camera I have ever owned
I am extremely disappointed with this camera. Very poor battery life. Pop-up flash jams with the slightest interference requiring a reset by turning camera off/on causing many missed photo opportunities. After less than one year, the camera will not operate at all.

My husband brought me this camera for Christmas a few months ago and I just recently started using it and downloading pictures. I use my camera's a lot for taking short videos and as soon as I hit the button to start video taping the battery gets drained, even after having just charged it.
Additionally, now that I have started downloading the pictures to my computer, many of the pictures are half, or all pink. I have had several Canon camera's prior to this and none of them had these types of issues. It's VERY DISAPPOINTING.
I have just sent an e-mail to the company to see what they can do, but having started to read all of the reviews, I am not too optimistic.

- The short battery life and type are serious problems.
- The long lens and lack of view finder is a serious problem.
Battery issues. For the next of this generation camera, add an accessory that holds multiple AA batteries, functions as a handhold, that mounts to the bottom of the camera.
View finder: Add a mount and electronic information interface for the DC1 electronic view finder built for the G-1 X Mk II.

Worst Canon out of 4 owned
Takes beautiful pictures if you can use it. On my China trip my iPhone outperformed this camera. I sent it back to canon to see if they can do something about the totally unacceptable battery life. If problem is not solved, good bye. Forget about using Video.
