PowerShot SX280 HS, SX270 HS Firmware Update Version 1.0.2.0

Firmware Version 1.0.2.0 is now available.

Thank you for using Canon products.

Changes

Firmware 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.

* Time under default camera settings, when normal operations are performed, such as shooting, pausing, turning the camera on and off, and zooming (Based on conditions established by Canon).

• Under some shooting conditions, the recording time may be shorter than mentioned above.

• Recording time with a fully charged battery.

2) Resolved an issue with cameras running firmware version 1.0.0.0, in which the low battery level warning is prematurely displayed while shooting in movie mode. With this new firmware version 1.0.2.0, the low battery level warning does not start flashing sooner than necessary.

Firmware Version 1.0.2.0 is for cameras with firmware Version 1.0.1.0 or Version 1.0.0.0. If the camera's firmware is already Version 1.0.2.0, it is not necessary to update the firmware.
Please note that, once the camera is updated to the latest version, it cannot be restored to a previous version.
