Summary: If you ask any famous YouTuber what their go-to vlogging camera is, they'll say the Canon 300HS. The quality of this camera has not been surpassed in the P&S field nor has features. I rarely if ever take photos with this camera but the photo quality is on par with similar 12MP P&S cameras. Pros: - Stereo mics are located ON TOP of the camera. This records voice evenly when filmed in front or behind the camera.
Summary: It's the same camera I bought the last time, and it functions amazingly. My last camera was dropped, and I was devastated. It is amazing at stabilization and providing a great picture every time. I'm so glad they haven't changed it!
Summary: I bought this as a true "pocket camera" to carry in the 'leg pocket' of my work pants. Takes great photos and has held up well. Usually available at a significant discount as I write this (3/18/13).
Summary: Canon hasn't disappointed me yet. This is my second camera from them and it works great. Aside from the zoom when recording video, you can hear the lens moving, and sometimes the sound randomly cuts out on one channel, and the menus that could be more intuitive--but for the price I paid for this, I can't complain too much, the video quality is very good.
Excerpt: Bought this one for my wife as she found the G12 too cumbersome and more camera than needed. We show the images on Panasonic 42 Neoplasma screen and, quite surprisingly, the images are very sharp and the colours are all excellent. In use, the small size is a huge plus. It fires up quickly and the shutter lag is minimal and not a problem. We don't shoot sports or fast action very often and it is unreasonable to expect a camera like this to keep up with a Canon 1dx.
Summary: This Canon Powershot although not the latest in the Powershot line, proved to be a consistently good, automatic focus, camera. It was easy to use, smaller than my cellphone, and quickly adjusted between outdoor motion shots or low light indoor shooting.
Summary: Lots of options, great picture quality, great video quality, light weight, somewhat sturdy. You get a lot of camera for the money. Only downside is it really can go through the battery quick but I have it doing all sorts of trick shots.
