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.
First Impression: Very Impressed! Few things, though..

Summary: I just received this camera about an hour ago, and spent the time since playing around with it. So I'm basically reviewing this camera as the average teenage user and giving major first impressions. My last camera was purchased in 2007, a Canon Powershot SD 750. It lasted me five long years (which is why I continue to purchase Canon over other competitors), and I felt that if I took care of it better, I'd still be using it.
Summary: No paper manual. It is a pain having to use computer to look at manual while learning the camera. Switch to change between Auto and Manual settings did not work reliably. Had to really push down hard to get the thing to switch. I am not putting up with that - returned the next day. A defect like that makes me question the whole Cannon line. Will look at another brand.
Summary: I really liked the size of the 300 but didn't like the screen resolution and it's smaller size screen. When I saw the improvements made on the 310 I jumped on it when it was released after researching many cameras. After a trip to Disney World I can say this is a great camera. Good 8x zoom, great in low light, great video. I own a Nikon SLR and was happy that I wasn't one of those other people that was lugging theirs around all day like others were doing.
Summary: This thing is beyond expectations! A++. Unless you know how to use an SLR this thing has everything imagineable PLSU MORE! Things you never thought possible. It's also TINY and LIGHT. When the box came, I thought it was empty! No feature is light, left out or missing from this camera. Not a single flaw. Beautiful body. Awesome display. Huge analog zoom.
Summary: I was looking for a video camera that did HD video when I discovered this camera. Not only does it do amazing video, the pictures are excellent! The camera has a lot of fun features. One of the 'funnest' features is the Movie Digest feature. You turn that feature on, and take pictures all day. For each picture you take, the camera captures 4 seconds of video just prior to your still photo. At the end of the day it combines all of those shots into a movie/video for you.
Summary: I purchased this camera to record slow motion video with sport teams. Capturing at 240fps creates outstanding video to aid in sport work. The quality of this camera for the price is really good. The other pictures I have taken are sharp, clear and vivid. Recommend this camera highly for the slow motion video alone. Being a great, full functioned camera is a bonus!
Summary: I purchased the 300 knowing the 310 was going to come out soon. Loved how the 300 was small and it was just perfect for me. When I purchased the 310, I knew I wanted the purple one. The camera itself isn't a perfect rectangle shape. The right side of the camera is skinnier than than the left and I think people say it's bulky because of the left side. The screen is bigger which is the plus and the zoom is way better than the 300.
