Showing 71-80 of 344
Just stopped working
2 May 2012
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: This camera is amazing for the price. It has manual and automatic settings and the zoom is simple to operate. The color is 'true to life' and the images are not blurry. It works fine with MOS 10.4 although the included software is for MOS 10.5 or greater. It's Windows compatible as well but I didn't verify how much so. I havent recorded a video yet but I really don't have the need except to show family that I can.
Summary: I recently received this camera as a birthday present and had a bit of time to fool around with it. I must say, it's a great little camera. It's not perfect, of course, but nothing is and the few flaws the Elph 310 has are mostly just minor nuisances to me. Let's start with the good: Photo Quality (Overall): The quality of the pictures I've taken has been consistently quite good.
Summary: This Canon Elph camera is one of the best cameras that I have owned. The pictures were crisp and clear and the camera is small but a very nice 3" screen. The zoom is more that enough for the pictures that I take.
Summary: I am an avid Canon SLR user with a few L lenses to boot. I needed a compact digital to replace an aging Finepix used by my wife. It's an excellent compact but not perfect. Here's the quick run-down: + Image stabilizer for unsteady hands + Excellent low light handling from the sensor to avoid blurred photos in less than optimal settings + Reasonable non-digital zoom distance (although it does have digital as well) + Build quality (anodized metal) + Picture...
Summary: I got one of these around Thanksgiving 2011 when my 600 crapped out. I really liked my 600 because it was really simple to operate, but the zoom quit working so we got this one to replace it. I'm an amateur and claim no skill in photography what so ever so that's where I'm coming from. I can't see that this camera takes better pictures than the 600 did, but I'm sure if you actually read the owners manual, which I haven't, it probably has more tricks than the old one.
Summary: This camera is all I expected and more. The features for a camera in this price range are surprising. It does everything I bought it to do and more. The battery life is exceptional compared to the camera it replaced. It takes great pictures and video, it's compact, it's amazing.
Summary: I've used the Canon SD1200 for years so the ELPH 310 can be considered an upgrade. Resolution is 12.1 vs 10 megapixels. The ELPH 310 delivers faster focusing and excellent image stability. It offers other movie features as well, which other reviewers can describe. I took a few hand held shots in my workshop with poor lighting, and the images were sharp. The MENU button has moved. So far I've not found out how to delete all images.
