I originally received this as a Birthday present in 2013 ...

  • Summary: I originally received this as a Birthday present in 2013. I am writing a product review now after having time to use it on trips. The camera functioned well up until 1.5 years when the lens started malfunctioning and I couldn't zoom without the lens getting jammed and shutting the camera off.

Good video quality

Renwu Zhang, Amazon

  • Summary: Good video quality, however, poor image quality compared to its processor. Cannot focus well and optical resolution is poor. Also, the image is distorted at the corner. Very disappointed by Canon. I used to buy 8 compact Powershot from Canon. Now, thinking of Nikon for the replacement.

Great until it breaks

Safari Larry, Amazon

  • Summary: It would be 5 stars... but after about 6 months the lens cover started sticking and wouldn't fully open or fully close. I sent it back to Canon and they replaced under warranty with a refurbished camera. Good customer service, it took about a week to get it replaced.

Great camera until it breaks

David O., Newegg
3 December 2011
  • Pros: Great picture quality in a variety of settings, to include indoor/low light conditions. Short delay between pictures. Very compact, but plenty of features.
  • Cons: Had a "lens error" after 5 uses. Looked this up online and found that this usually occurs if the camera is dropped with the lens extended or due to dirt. None of these were the case for this one.

REGRET BUYING THIS CAMERA.

  • Summary: Not a high end camera, not the best-of-the-best... mediocore at best... camera looks better than photos come out 1) Slow focus times - If you press click too quickly, the image is blurred 2) Poor sunset/sunrise captures - Photos are washed out even when NOT taking a photo of the sun.

Beautiful camera, terrible image quality

Mr. Stajdanley, Amazon
4 October 2011
  • Summary: I am a huge fan of Canon, but am completely disappointed with this little camera. Pros: The Elph 300HS is very small, which makes it easy to take with you just about anywhere you go. The matte black finish is stylish and makes holding the camera very comfortable.

Way over rated!

Luvwtr, Amazon
4 October 2011
  • Summary: My trusty Canon SD630 starting to get a little worn so I decided to upgrade to a similar sub-compact point and shoot. The Elph 300Hs is almost identical in size to the older SD630 with a few more rounded edges.

Disappointing image quality

JJ73, Amazon
4 October 2011
  • Summary: I own a Canon EOS 7D (DSLR) and an old SD400. The SD400 is nearing its end, so I wanted a new small point and shoot to replace it. I would never expect a new P&S to even approximate the quality of my 7D, but I'd certainly expect more out of a couple generations of PowerShots.

Expectations fell short

Elizabeth Gordon, Amazon
4 October 2011
  • Summary: I had high expectations for this camera. There was a high volume of overwhelmingly positive reviews, and my previous camera was a 6-year-old Canon Powershot A620. Any new camera would be an improvement, right?

Don't like the image quality

Amazon Customer, Amazon
3 October 2011
  • Summary: I really don't understand why people seem to rave about this camera. I bought this and returned it a couple weeks later; I found the image quality to not be very good, images (even taken outside in good light) were noisy, washed out looking, bad colors, not sharp.
