Along with the new Rebel cameras, Canon is announcing a brand new point and shoot camera. The new SX280 HS sports a 12.1MP sensor, 20x optical zoom, WiFi connectivity, a DIGIC 6 imaging processor, ISO performance up to 6400, and high speed burst capabilities at 14FPS and full resolution. Indeed, it is quite the speed demon. Now before you go and say, “my camera can go faster” just remember that this is a point and shoot dude. And it’s at full resolution! The camera also sports a 3.0 inch, 461k LCD screen.

The PowerShot SX280 HS digital camera is expected to ship in April 2013 for an estimated retail price of $329.99.

More hands on photos are after the jump.
