Motor Noise is a deal breaker

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.
Summary: This camera works well, and seems to do what I expect of it. It uses the same battery as another Canon camera that I have, so I can use them interchangeably. It takes great images (not that I'm a professional), and the user interface is clean and usable, as I would expect from Canon.
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.
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!!
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: I was amazed at how great this little camera took crisp photos and the power of its 8x zoom. It's features covers everything from special effects (toy car) to settings for crisp night scenes without a tripod.
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.
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.
