Humming noise in video mode

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.
Summary: This camera is absolutely wonderful. I'm in the 18-24 age range & I know a lot about cameras. I initially bought the black canon elph 300 from best buy, because they only had elph 310 in purple and I figured the 300 was just as good, only lacking the zoom. Ended up returning the 300 and ordered the pink 310 from amazon.
Summary: When my old Canon broke after seven years, many instances of being rained on or dropped, and basically shameful camera abuse, I was pretty impressed with how long it had lasted and liked it enough to give Canon another try. Read heaps of reviews on Amazon, and it seemed like everyone really loved this one. So glad I bought it! It is easy to use, takes great pictures, looks fantastic, and feels solid.
Summary: Purchased this as a gift for Christmas. Does not include any memory card, and is not functional without said memory card. Also, it would be nice if the display was bezeled. When you set it down on the display, you definitely run the risk of scratching the glass. The HD Video option is quite nice. Will be upgrading soon though - just released is a camera with wi-fi capabilities, with direct upload to facebook/twitter/etc. SWEET!
Summary: I chose this camera as my wife's Christmas gift. I thought she would prefer the blue version but it was not available directly from Amazon, and other sources were showing a higher price. Finally the week before Christmas Amazon listed the blue model as directly available at the same price as the other colors, but backordered. So I ordered it and assumed it would not get there in time.
