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.
Summary: I researched the heck out of this and did read that some were having concerns with motor noise while zooming in video mode. This is a real problem I hoped not to have since the complaint was few and far between. I read from others that origination of manufacture might be the problem. The first product I had made the noise and was made in China (according to the box). I requested replacement, which arrived timely.
Summary: I was pleased when I received my Canon ELPH 310 as a birthday present. I took to it instantly. I tested it for days but as I kept using it I was disappointed that the shots were not coming out as clear as my previous digital camera...a lot of the shots were blurry and grainy. I was beginning to miss my old broken down camera. I finally took it off of auto mode and it was a HALLELUJAH moment.
Summary: My last camera was a PowerShot which I had for 7 years. It was a good, reliable point and shoot, so I resisted buying a new camera. Some of the mechanical functions have slowed a bit, so I purchased the ELPH 310 for Christmas. Wow, what a difference!! It is smaller and the LED is much larger, so I have to hold it differently, but the changes are worth it. The video function is easier to use because it has a dedicated button and you can zoom while you are recording.
Summary: I bought it for general purpose but with fact in mind that its photography should be better than phone camera on high end phones whether in day or night shoot. Did make me feel that this extra camera other than my phone is worth to have. Great clarity in night photography.
Summary: When I bought this, I told several people I had and they only had kudos for me. This is a great purchase for anyone in need of a camera, and, from what I've seen, it HAS GOT to be one of the better digital handheld cameras out there on the budget market. Buy this, and you'll be happy with nearly every single shot that comes out of it. NOTE: I bought a memory extension, so that may be why the capabilities are at 100% and no less.
Summary: I am a camera junkie and this is the 12th digital camera I've owned. I have a DSLR, but like to keep a small camera on me since my phone doesn't take the greatest pictures. I had to replace my PowerShot SD1300 (piece of crap!) because the pictures were so terrible. A friend of mine had the Elph 310 on a recent trip and I was blown away at the quality of pictures & videos, so I bought it also.
Summary: - Simple to operate, small, excellent results, modest price. The worst part of the ELPH 310HS ( or IXUS 230HS ) is the name. In the USA Canon sells an entirely different camera called the SX 230HS. Ordering the camera or batteries becomes a test of your ability to clarify Canon's terrible nomenclature. There are reviews of this camera that incorrectly refer to it as the ELPH 230HS! Buy a couple of extra batteries from Amazon (NB-4L) for $10 each (get the 1200 mamp type.
