Summary: After careful consideration, I bought in early December a new Canon ELPH310HS to replace my old IXUS 70 for my upcoming trip to the Galapagos. Bought it from BestBuy because my initial order with Amazon was cancelled after they failed to deliver properly. Neverminds. I have had the IXUS 70 since 2008 and it was built like a tank in a metal frame.
This might not be Canon's Year for CMOS Point and Shoot Cameras
West Shopper, Amazon
27 December 2011
Summary: This review is for taking indoor pictures not for taking video or for taking outdoor pictures. My understanding is that the camera is very good for taking video. I have had Canon point and shoots for years and was never disappointed in them. I like to point and click. I shoot in automatic not in manual modes. I prefer using standard JPEG compression. That's how I've used Canon point and shoot cameras for seven years.
Summary: After a few days of research, I picked up the 310HS at Sam's Club and used it through a handful of family Christmas activities. Here's what I love: 1. The look and feel. I own a a Canon DSLR so this was just intended to be for occasions when I didn't feel like lugging it around. This camera fits easily into my pants pockets and looks awesome. Love the blue body. 2. Movie Digest Mode. Very underrated, I think.
Summary: So, I was in the market for a new camera after my old one died. I have always loved canons and have always had really good luck with them. All of my past canons have been very well made so, I decided I wanted another canon. I wanted a nice compact that had really good photo quality, but also looked nice. I started looking at the ELPH series and eventually I decided on either the 300 or the 310.
Excerpt: I've lost count of how many Canon Elph cameras I've had, some only briefly before I gave them away, others I used regularly. I have several other cameras too (mostly Fuji), but I like the compactness, quality, consistency of user interface, and the best-of-class auto exposure/focus/color of the Elph cameras. I don't like the graininess and limited dynamic range resulting from the tiny sensor.
Summary: ...I used it. My main question was something like "Can I have the power of a larger camera in a small package?" I read multiple reviews of about 5 different Canon cameras. I always study things before I buy. It is not so much the money, but just want to have the right camera for my needs. Here is my background- I am a novice photographer, but I take a lot pictures and have had some good success because of canon's powerful cameras.
Summary: After reading so many good reviews about Canon elph 310HS, I bought the camera last month from Costco just before Thanksgiving. I had such high hope that I was very disappointed about the image quality after takind indoor pictures of my children for several weeks. Almost 50% of my pictures turned out blurry or out of focus. I never got one picture that you would call crispy. I tried both auto and manual mode. Not sure whether I saw any improvement.
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: 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.
