Newbee looking for another camera

Hi Guys.
I presently have a SX260HS near infrared camera and now need a normal camera to do mapping. The new camera needs to be the same size as the SX260 and must be able to reliably operate CHDK. Would I be best to go for the SX280? Or is there something even better. I'd get another SX260 but they're difficult to find now as they're getting to be an old model. I look forward to your input. :D

The sx280 port works with the new DIGIC6 processor.  This has required a huge amount of new development work by srsa_4c and the port is still really preliminary in completeness and stability.

So based on your description,  finding an SX240 / SX260 is probably your best bet.  Did you check the official Canon refurbished cameras sight?

Hi. I'm sorry but I didn't realise there were refurbishment sites. Could you suggest any? I'm in New Zealand.

Here's a couple of links :

Not sure how painful shipping to kiwi land is?  You might try googling for something international that works better - including on ebay!
