Summary: I purchased this camera on the recommendation of a friend but should have paid more attention to the reviews!! The pictures were pretty good. Good color and focus as long as there is plenty of light. Low light or hand held night settings were still blurry. My major complaint is the lens cover won't close when the camera is powered down. I've only had it for 2 months so it's outside of the seller's warranty period of 30 days.
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: After taking pictures with my IPhone for years, it is so wonderful to have an actual camera to take pictures with. Every picture looks rich and full and totally perfect! I would never go back to a camera phone!! It is easy to carry this around in my purse because it is so small. Love this camera!!!
Summary: I purchase a new Canon powershot /elph just about every year ...mainly because I run point and shoot cameras to the ground since I take so many pictures !! I am EXTREMELY happy with this model! I had the camera for about a week until I finally figured out the menu button was on the side of the camera...this gave me a tickle ,because the menu button is my favorite feature!! I am not going to beat around the bush with this review..
Summary: I purchased this camera to replace an aging SD600, which I've had for many years. I was most interested in the higher ISO settings that were available with this camera for low-light shooting. I find the shutter lag to be appallingly bad and the autofocus in low light is also very slow and irregular. I've had Canon Elph digitals since they first came out, and this is my fourth overall, and I have to say that this one is the most disappointing camera that I've ever owned.
Summary: I had an older ELF stolen and had to purchase a new one. I am blown away by the improvements and upgrades over the last 4 years. I have a toddler and the 'burst' feature that allows you take several pictures per second has been invaluable in capturing some amazing moments. I recommend this camera to all !!
Summary: I purchased a 310HS for my daughter for Christmas 2011 for her to use during her semester abroad in equatorial Africa. It served her well in that harsh climate and she just loves it. For myself, I started with Canon in 1973 with a 35mm FTb-QL, and used an AE1-Program from 1983 until a thief helped himself to it about 10 years ago. Since then, I toyed with an old style F-1, and I presently have a pair of sweet F-1Ns, a black AE1-Program, and a 20D.
Excerpt: I wanted a shirt pocket take everywhere camera and this is the best one I could find at a reasonable price, $200 at Costco. It meets my needs for photos and the video is surprisingly good. Macro is very good. It doesn't have a lot of manual controls but for that I will use my Canon G12 or Nikon P7000, or for more serious photography, my Nikon D300. The capabilities this camera has in a tiny size would have cost megabucks 10 years ago.
Summary: After extensive researching of many point and shoot cameras, I finally settled on the Canon PowerShot ELPH 310. I just received it a couple of days agao and I absolutely love it. I ordered it in green, and I think it's a gorgeous colour and the camera itself seems to be really well made. I have played around with it quite a bit, and so far I am very pleased with how it performs. The most amazing thing about it was the quality of picture with no light source.
Summary: No doubt hands down this is a winner. Perfect pics easy use nice and compact. The fault is the bigger viewing window. Although it may be nice you must be careful not to put your finger prints on it when using the camera.
