Summary: FIirst of I just want to say how impressed I am by this camera. I take a lot of pictures of my kids and dog and it is hard to get them to hold still, but this camera has no problems getting the perfect picture. I read all kinds of reviews and comparisons before making my purchase and now I know what all the hyper was about this is one amazing camera. You just point and shoot it does all the work,no delay either when you push the button it takes the picture.
Easy to use and good for pictures of kids and cats

Summary: Very simple interface. Pictures come out great right out of the box. I bought it becasue it was rated as good for taking shots of kids and animals that tend to move around a lot. This camera does the trick there. Focuses quickly, automatically eliminated red-eyes, and has a feature so you can shoot continuously. Very happy so far. It is also very slim and lightweight.
Summary: This was given to my as a gift and have only used it a few times. so far the pictures are of excellent quality. The camera is light and easy to carry. The videos also were great quality. It's a nice little camera.
Summary: I absolutely love this camera. The color is awesome (I got the pink), I love the small size and the lcd viewer on the back. I haven't played around with it too much yet, there are a lot of options and it a tad bit complicated to use but I'm sure I'll catch the hang of it in no time. I'm really happy I purchased this...
Summary: I ordered 2 of these, 1 in Sept 2011, 1 in Dec 2011. Both cameras had the lens fail to open after a week of use. Returned both and ordered a different camera. I'm not the first to get 'Lens Error' but for me it was 2 for 2. Glad I ordered from Amazon.
Summary: I had two issues with this camera. After contacting Canon I decided that I had a defective unit, so returning the camera for a refund. I am a bit hesitant to try again since this is a new model and seems like they are still trying to sort out quality issues. Problem 1: In video mode, there is a very loud humming noise when image stabilization is ON. This noise is not the motor noise from zooming, it happens without touching the zoom.
Summary: This is a cute little camera (maybe even too little) but I felt the pictures weren't as sharp as they should be and took too long to take (hard to take of active kids). I found the video sound quality to be poor (unless you were hoping to hear the lens zooming in and out). I probably would have kept it b/c I found some tricks to get the pictures to come out sharper and take faster and I already have an HD camcorder.
Summary: My daughter was looking to upgrade her camera to one that would take 1080 video for her YouTube channel. After doing a bunch of research we settled on the Canon ELPH 310 HS. The ElPH 300 is very highly rated and used a lot on YouTube. The 310 HS seemed to be even better so that is what we bought. After shooting video with it however we were very disappointed. The video is very muffled, like it is passed through a low pass filter.
Summary: I bought this and the more expensive S100 to compare. We're keeping the Elph 310. It is very light and fits nicely in the hand. The camera is for my girlfriend who cares less about low-light performance and more about ease of use, and this one won out. Most of her pictures are taken with a flash and posted on facebook so the nicer lens in the S100 is not really much benefit. The 8x zoom on the 310 is amazing, and the image stabilization works. Very impressive.
Summary: Dis camera is a Great point and shot if you dont like a buch of features dis camera is for you. Simple to use it does all the work on its own it takes great pics and great video in HD. Shoting in full hd will eat up your battery and memory card so get extra battery and card this camera is worth the money.
