Summary: First, let me say this camera does take some great pictures and it is very easy to use. My complaint comes in by how plastic it feels. It just doesn't feel solid like all the other Canon cameras we have purchased in the past. I love my husband's Canon Powershot 300HS, but I wanted a bit higher zoom. So, I purchased this one. I also purchased the Powershot 510 as well to see which one I would like better. I must say, I am swaying towards returning both of them.
Summary: This camera is FANTASTIC. After losing my Canon SD 630 (which I've had since 2006), I was nervous I wouldn't find a camera that I would love again. I had originally ordered the 300 HS, and had it for about two weeks and then I found out that the 310 HS was coming out so I decided to return the 300 HS. I also wasn't really impressed with the 300 HS to begin with.
Summary: I ordered this camera right when it was available despite it not having very many reviews. In pictures the camera looks like it has a nice, metallically finish, but upon touching it it feels like awfully cheap plastic. Not only that, the camera is actually bulkier than my old SD1400, and while I know it has a powerful 8x zoom, I expected the camera to be smaller, not bigger than my older model.
Summary: I have to say that I was happy to be one of the first people to buy this camera. I actually received it before it was being officially marketed at BestBuy stores. I saw a lady online post that the camera was in storage at many of the stores but that you could request for them to retrieve a box from storage, and they couldn't refuse you to buy one for a sale. I didn't believe this tactic, but I went to a BestBuy, and tried it.
Summary: I telephoned my brother as I was wanting a smaller camera to take on holiday. As he has always been involved with high-end "toys", I knew that he had a very good camera, himself. I bought the same camera, but I had to buy mine from Italy. So far, I cannot fault the camera but I do not try to do anything clever with it yet. Once I have waded through the 250 page manual, I might be a bit more adventurous.
Summary: Takes excellent pictures. Plenty of built in features, 8x zoom, 1080p video that matches the quality of a dedicated camcorder. Compact and can easily fit in a pocket. Fast - can turn on and take a picture in 2 seconds. Everything I expected and nothing has disappointed me so far.
Excerpt: A brilliant camera! I'm only an amateur so i don't know too much about brilliant cameras, but to me, this camera is everything I need. I've had this camera for six months now and haven't had any problems with it. It's a great size, not too big, not too small, so fits nicely in a pocket for travelling or trips, and is also very light weight. It has a lot of useful effects including a slow motion movie setting which I had fun discovering.
Pros: Easy to use, light weight and great photo quality
Cons: The quality of the slow motion movie setting isn't great
