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.
Summary: I have had 3 canon cameras and all have been hand-me-downs. They all worked great and I have no complaints about canon and their products. But this time I wanted a new camera for myself. I do not reget this purchase. I love all the functions that it has and I can't say enough about the picture quality. Excellent. I am very happy. The only downside is if you decided to use all the features i.e. the video camera it will drain the battery.
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.
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.
