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: 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: I decided to switch from Nikon to Canon based on Canon's excellent product support and quick-responding website (it made research easy). One key feature of the Nikon CoolPix S3000 was that it would charge while connected to the computer. But the ELPH310HS will not trickle charge through the USB cable. It was really convenient to have the battery charge while I was downloading pictures. I did not have to fiddle around with the battery and keeping track of the charger.
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: Had the camera for two months and loved almost everything about it. Then out of the blue the lens will not retract. Tried almost everything. Nothing worked. Camera was not dropped or operated in conditions that according to the manual would cause this to happen. Beginning the arduous task of getting it repaired. Disappointed because I did my homework and after having horrible experience with Nikon I thought Canon was the answer. Jury is still out.
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: This Canon Powershot ELPH 310 is the best camera I have bought for the money. It takes pictures instantly with perfect color. It is so easy to use. I haven't found anything wrong yet with this camera. I love it. Abby from Napa, Ca.
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.
