Summary: Very disappointed with this camera. Received this in the mail 10 days ago. Took fabulous pictures and videos up until today. I initially chose this camera because I was looking for one that would take pictures in low lighting. It did a great job with that so I was very happy. However, today the camera lens froze open and I have been unable to get the camera to operate. After reading the "1 star" reviews, I see that others have had this same problem.
Summary: I couldn't be happier. I was looking for a more portable camera than my d5000 Nikon slr. I'm very happy with what I bought. I had to buy an extra battery though but it's not that expensive. From the reviews, I was expecting that the battery would just die on me really quick, but that's not the case for me. The only problem I have though is that when I'm using my camera with flash, it lags for a while and it takes quite a while to take pictures with the flash on.
Summary: I love this camera. I have a Canon 35mm camera and got this as a point and shoot for bike rides and walks. The 8x zoom lens is great!! The picture quality is surprisingly good also. I highly recommend this camera.
Summary: The field of inexpensive, compact, automatic cameras is crowded to say the least -- but this cameras stands out as an excellent balance of elegant, practical design, and superb performance for its class. I wanted a simple second camera as a backup for my Canon S100. I finally opted for this model (Elph 310) after ordering -- and returning (thank you, Amazon!) -- a newer, more expensive model.
Summary: I highly recommend this camera! It's awesome. Paired with a Class 10 16gb SD card, it's wicked fast and will store a ton of hi-res pics or video. I bought this for my wife, we have a Canon G11 (which I LOVE) but she doesn't dig it so much. I'm all about playing with settings but she just wanted something smaller that fit in her purse easier (or back pocket) that had a great auto feature that could adjust quickly and effortlessly.
Summary: It takes pretty decent pictures in low light and the macro is nice. The auto feature works pretty well and the different program settings are fun to play with. Nothing breath-taking though. Also, since the first week of use, the shutter has not been closing completely - one side goes down and the other stays open. It's annoying since the lens could be damaged and gets dirty.
Excerpt: This is the fifth or sixth Canon camera I have owned. I bought it for its small size, reasonable (8x) optical zoom, and Canon image quality. Sad to say this has been an absolutely horrible camera. I bought the camera before an extended vacation. On day four the lens got stuck in the zoomed out position, I received the "lens error" message, and the camera was useless.
Summary: Less than 60 days after purchasing this camera on Amazon, it stopped working, failing to boot up past the HS System logo screen, turning itself off after 30 seconds. Kudos to Canon's customer support people, however, who replaced it with a refurbished unit in less than a week. If I didn't know it was a refurb I couldn't have told the difference.
Summary: My previous Canon broke after being dropped on a hard floor. I was very upset that I needed to replace it, as it was only a few years old. However, I ADORE this camera! It has many of the same features of my older camera, but with a few added bonuses, such as a much faster response time when taking pictures. It also provides pretty good pictures in low light situations. I can't wait to use even more of the features in the future.
