The Bottom Line Despite its no-frills feature set, the Canon PowerShot SD600 delivers quality photos and strong performance in a small package. Wi-Fi connectivity and a new processor help make Canon's PowerShot SX280 HS one of the top compact megazooms available. But you'd better load up on batteries.
