Excerpt: I have owned many compact cameras and this is by far the best! Canon's HS Sensor is increadible for quality in low light and for pin sharp photographs. When looking for a compact camera in todays market its easy to buy into Megapixels, GPS, Touchscreen etc however Canon have focused on the importance of image quality! If buying at the moment, I strongly recomend a HS camera. Problems: None To date.
Summary: I really love this camera. I picked out the blue one. Its small and compact and cute. It takes excellent clear pictures and close ups. I love how it has many modes you can put it on like poster and fish eye and vivid color ect ect. You can do video in slow motion. I have owned the camera exactly a week and i have been having alot of fun snapping all kinds of pictures which i have posted about 8 of them on Amazon under the Canon powershot elph 310.
Summary: I have had this camera for about 10 months. It takes great shots, even in low light. I am having a lens retract issue, which could not be resolved by phone (canon customer support). The lens is stuck in the outward position. I have not dropped the camera or spilled anything on it or damaged it in any way. Canon said to return it for repairs as it has a one year warranty. It is yet to be seen if they will repair it free.
Summary: I bought this camera last year. The reviews were great so I thought it was an easy buy. My last camera was a Sony and I loved it but a blur started showing up on pictures and video and didn't go away after cleaning. My husband loves Canon so we thought this would be safe. I read all the reviews and there were a few people that were having problems with sound on their video. I didn't think it would be a problem since there weren't many reporting this problem.
Summary: I've owned a few Canon Elphs over the past dozen years ... basically massive use of my first 100 and my teenage son's trip to Europe with my replacement 1000 necessitated this third model. I researched long and hard, poring over features, reviews, specifications and test images. This is by far the best balance of pixels, zoom, automatic features, manual functions, and -- of course with the Elph line -- portability and durability that ensures that you always have your...
Summary: OVERPRICE WARNING - I love my Elph 310 HS which I bought in January from Amazon in the color purple. HOWEVER, the price I paid was $199.00. Don't pay more than that for this camera. For $236.78 - free shipping, no tax - I got the camera, a case, a mini tripod and a SanDisk Ultra SD 16 GB memory card. See Larry Chaney review - the most helpful review and the one that convinced me to buy this little gem. Shop around - there are much better deals.
Summary: I use it often, I have 3 kids. The detail on this little camera is GREAT. Close up images are clear, far shots capture tiny details. I love having the record button set apart by itself so I am not fussing around with settings. Another great point about the settings, is that you can switch from Auto to your own chosen settings very easily. A new great setting is the auto red-eye fix. You don't have to fiddle around with computer software trying to clean up people's eyes.
Summary: We have had this camera for 5 months. We bought it to have a better digital for an upcoming cruise. Tried it for several months so we felt comfortable with operating it. Within one day of our cruise , we got the dreaded lens error message and camera was inoperable. Fortunately, we had taken our old nikon cool pix as a back up. Returned camera to Best Buy. But they would only contact Canon with the issue.
Summary: Great camera for the price. Nice features, excellent photos, small form factor, easy to use, 8x zoom is handy, very good quality movies. The one negative is that the menu button is on the side, takes a little getting used to. I definitely recommend the 310HS ELPH.
