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.
Summary: I got this camera to replace my wife's old Canon Elph SD-300 (4 MP, 3x zoom), which we really liked for its balance between tiny size and decent picture quality. Well, Canon has really raised the bar with the 310 HS! 12.1 MP is plenty of resolution for our needs, the 8x zoom lens lets you go from wide angle to tight shots, the image stabilization helps minimize blurry pictures, and the full auto mode is pretty darn smart.
Summary: I've had this camera for approximately 6 months and have only used it for a couple of vacations and I've had 2 problems with it. The first one I noticed after only 2 months was the lens cover would not fully close when the camera was turned off. The camera still worked so I ignored this problem until just recently the lens got stuck in the extended position. At this point the camera does not work so I have to send it back for repair.
Summary: I purchased this camera for a trip to france that I recently took. It held up great, with one exception; one of the little metal slides that protect your lens when the camera is off has broke so now I have to close it manually. Other than that I love it. It takes quality pictures without taking up a lot of space. The different picture features it gives are awesome and can be quite funny. Overall, I am very glad of the purchase.
