Summary: After many hours of research I decided on the 310hs. It is a great camera and is the first camera I have had that takes great photos even in low light. The auto mode is amazing and adjusts before you eyes making it super easy to use, yet you can switch it to have more control if you want.
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.
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.
pro review: one of the most useful and versatile point-and-shoots also creates stunning images

Summary: Although most of my photography is in fine art studio work, I still use DSLRs and small point-and-shoots for travel and personal snapshots. I have owned and used both Nikon and Canon, and have personally used the Canon 780, S90, S95, and Elph 300, as well as this 310.
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.
Summary: This is a nice little camera. You do have the flexibility to change the ISO and white balance. In long shutter mode you can go up to 15 seconds. A Very Nice feature. While zooming the noise in the video is awful. That's why I'm giving this a 4 & not a 5.
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.
Summary: First up i purchased this model in BLACK from best buy,would have purchased here but seems BB has the rights to the black color unless someone knows more,overall the camera is awesome,one major complaint is the sound quality which is below avg to poor,the sound on the 300 hs is a tad better but...
Summary: Canon PowerShot ELPH 310 HS 12.1 MP CMOS Digital Camera with 8x Wide-Angle Optical Zoom Lens and Full 1080p HD Video (Silver) I was so looking forward to getting this camera. I have the 300 hs and thought the 310 hs would offer a few upgraded features.
