Best point and shoot I've had

Summary: I have tried Panasonic Lumix, Nikon and other canons but this is the best one I've tried. It's zoom capability is awesome- meaning it takes AMAZING shots at it's full capacity zoom. The color and quality of the photos are unmatched. I'm impressed every time I use this camera. It's also a great feature to have HD video that can zoom while shooting. Color options are also fun. I had the purple but I unfortunately dropped it on it's lens onto concrete and broke it.
Summary: This camera takes good photos—when it will take photos. Even on the Auto setting, or with the "stability enforcer" turned off, I have to press the "shoot" button several times before the camera takes the shot, and sometimes it simply will not. Removing the photo card is also difficult, because the camera's edges have many buttons, and it's hard to keep from pressing one by mistake while trying to hold the camera still enough to slide the photo card cover open.
Summary: Bought it in December 2011. First day of a 3-week vacation January 2013 the lens froze in the extended position and will not retract. Looked online for cures, but nothing has worked so far. Amazing how it broke itself 1 month out of warranty. (I note in the reviews others have had the same issue.) Canon wants $190 to repair it. For that I can buy a new camera. Loved the camera until this happened.
Summary: This is truly the best camera I've ever owned. It was simple to learn, takes better photos than some of my friends more expensive higher pixel cameras, comes in a choice of colors and it's a good pocket size. I would only like it more if it came with it's own case that could hold the battery charger. My liking it so much influenced 2 family members into buying the same model camera. We're wabi with it.
Summary: Small, easy to carry, easy to use, lots of functions to choose from (though I use the Foliage one about 95% of the time), and the results turn out great. If you're an amateur photographer like me and you want your pictures to turn out like you know what you're doing, I totally recommend this camera. The zoom gets pixellated at very far distances, but that's to be expected I think.
Summary: 2013/01/23 - I purchased this camera 2011/10/31, so it is 2 1/2 months over the 1 year warranty. I really liked it while it was working, but unfortunately it stopped working. When I go to shoot images, the viewing screen is completely black. I cannot see anything on the image display. I called Canon, and they offered a refurbished one thru the 'Canon Loyalty program' at a 20% discount, but only a 90 day warranty, OR I could send my camera in to get it fixed.
Summary: Luv my camera. Takes great pictures. Compact. Exactly the color I wanted. I love everything about it. Granted, I didn't realize this was last year's model, I don't care. In comparison to this year's model, in my opinion, this one has better features. It took a little longer than expected to receive but once I got it, I forgot how long I've been waiting for it.
Summary: The Canon PowerShot ELPH 310 is a very nice camera. Its size and features work well for everyday use. I bought it for my wife. She is a point and shot type picture taker. It works well for her. She has even expanded here use to include using the video features of the camera.
Summary: This camera is just okay. It doesn't always take clear pictures. I had an older model that worked much better. I expected more from this camera. I do love the color of it & I like the size of it. It's not horrible but not the best!
Summary: I'm very pleased with this camera. I appreciate the variety of settings, ease of use, and the wide angle lens. We took this on an overseas trip, and it was great to easily carry the camera in a pocket or purse. We bought an extra battery and kept the spare charged so we wouldn't miss out on photo opportunities. It's light and compact. The video option is a nice addition--we used it occasionally. We'd recommend this one!
