Excerpt: MY BACKGROUND: I learned the basics of photography shooting BW film in the 80's. I have worked in the professional photography industry for over 6 years, and have been into digital photography since the early Nikon Coolpix 950 in 2001. It had a wonderful twist design for shooting overhead or way down low, a decent viewfinder, took great macro's, and the flash was much more predictable than modern P&S cameras.
Excerpt: This one is based on the 1/2.3" BSI sensor that works great in low light. Lens is quite good except at both wide & tele. The 24mm wide is VERY useful though. Hidef, 1080P video is very good, it can optically zoom while recording, the video has no compression artifacts and audio is in stereo. The image stabilization works also very well. The 640x480 video at 120fps is awesome to have, finally a decent resolution for this slow mo effect.
Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS 12.1 MP Digital Camera (Black)
26 July 2011
Excerpt: For 1 year and a half, I have enjoyed being a DSLR photographer, wherein I have also assisted my Mom in a camera store. Before, I thought nothing could beat the image quality of a DSLR. I wanted to have something that I can easily carry everywhere I go.
Excerpt: I was happy to see Canon start to come to their senses and decide to take a chance on quality rather than marketing side-show flim-flams. The camera this unit replaces had a higher pixel count (14 mp) and lower picture quality. I owned the SD1400is, and it was mostly a disappointment. Noisy and soft. This camera is better. In fact it's pretty darn good. Good detail and reasonable dynamic range.
