Summary: This is our 5th Elph. They are great......this one is no exception. Each one has offered the current state of the art technology even slow learners could use. This Elph, the 310 has great zoom capabilitiers, wonderful video, and continued ease of use. I was thrilled to find it in black, something the shops here in the East Coast claim is not made, on Amazon. All in all a wonderful,compact camera that does more than any SLR from the 60-70-80-90-2000's that I have owned!
Summary: This is a nice camera that works well in low light situations. This is a great camera for those who want to primarily use the automatic settings, although you can use manual settings if you prefer. My only complaint is there is a fairly long focus time - the time between when you push the shutter release button and when the picture is actually taken.
Summary: As usual, Canon is doing its best to confuse the bewildered consumer, offering enough choices to satisfy the very individual needs and tastes of everyone in the extended family. Before considering those cute little Elves, try to remember the days when you asked the subject to remain still for a second and to say "cheese.
Summary: I am really impressed with the quality and style of this camera. Takes absolutely beautiful pictures and video, and has a wonderful LCD screen. I love all the different shooting options like selective color, kids/pets, super vivid, toy camera etc... Very easy to use/select what the best setting is for the situation you are shooting.
Excerpt: I use a Nikon D7000, but wanted a small portable to carry in my pocket to replace an old Canon SD850IS that was no longer working. I bought two of the Elph 310HS cameras, one for me and one for my daughter. The cameras were only a few days old when I first started taking photos with my 310HS, but I immediately noticed a strong yellow-green tint throughout all of the photos. I then took the same photo subjects with my daughter's new 310HS.
Excerpt: For its price and size, this camera has a lot to offer. This camera has the same sensor as several other Canon point-and-shoots released in Q3 of 2011. It is the cheapest and smallest with this sensor. Its extreme compactness combined with 8X optical zoom and fast handling (for a point-and-shoot) make this a winner for me. I shoot the Nikon D300s and D7000 SLRs when the situation demands / allows for it.
Summary: I only took pictures with Either Mobiles or a crappy camera, This was a major chance to me, it has an amazing 8X Zoom, Maybe i'm impressed because it has the 8X Zoom, well ... after i got this, i am wondering why i didnt buy the one that had 18x zoom, but ya that was much heavier ... well if u get too much zoom u wont be able to stable ur hand alot ... anyways ! I am the worst at giving reviews ... but ... i had it for a couple of days ...
Summary: As many other reviews note in great detail, this camera has a fantastic set of features, combined with a good zoom range and compact size, and can take some very nice photos. And, I experienced that on the first 3 days of my vacation. But then after just 5 days of use (2 days of learning the camera, then 3 days on vacation), perhaps 200 photos (max) and 5 minutes of video, the camera completely stopped working. The lens is fully extended and the camera says "Lens Error.
Summary: We bought the Canon Powershot ELPH 310HS to replace a Canon ELPH SD800IS. The focus on the ELPH 310HS was fuzzy, fuzzy, fuzzy. It could not take a photo with sharp detail. We returned it to the dealer in five days for a full refund. Be sure to check the picture sharpness while you have return privileges.
