Summary: This is a nice little camera. You do have the flexibility to change the ISO and white balance. In long shutter mode you can go up to 15 seconds. A Very Nice feature. While zooming the noise in the video is awful. That's why I'm giving this a 4 & not a 5. Be prepared, zoom in first then start shooting. If your zooming in & out constantly all you'll hear is the camera and not the subject, ( which negates being able to zoom )the Video in low light is OK. Outside it's GREAT!
Summary: This camera is FANTASTIC. After losing my Canon SD 630 (which I've had since 2006), I was nervous I wouldn't find a camera that I would love again. I had originally ordered the 300 HS, and had it for about two weeks and then I found out that the 310 HS was coming out so I decided to return the 300 HS. I also wasn't really impressed with the 300 HS to begin with.
Awesome, tiny cam w/ one BIG caveat - don't put it in your pocket!

Summary: Before I get to the negative portion, I've got to say this is a functionally oustanding camera. I spent a great deal of time weighing this cam against the 300 HS, 500 HS, 510 HS, S95, S100 and SX230 HS. This camera turned out to be the best combination of features and functions I could hope for... a fairly wide angle at the short end, great 8x zoom, and unbelievable low-light shooting.
pro review: one of the most useful and versatile point-and-shoots also creates stunning images

Summary: Although most of my photography is in fine art studio work, I still use DSLRs and small point-and-shoots for travel and personal snapshots. I have owned and used both Nikon and Canon, and have personally used the Canon 780, S90, S95, and Elph 300, as well as this 310. Keeping in mind that photography is 95% photographer and 5% equipment, this 310 does allow one to create stunning images in more diverse conditions than its predecessors, including the S90, S95 series.
Summary: Canon PowerShot ELPH 310 HS 12.1 MP CMOS Digital Camera with 8x Wide-Angle Optical Zoom Lens and Full 1080p HD Video (Silver) I was so looking forward to getting this camera. I have the 300 hs and thought the 310 hs would offer a few upgraded features. It arrived about two hours ago and couldn't wait to try it out. I already had a charged battery so I was good to go. I love the added zoom and the pictures are detailed and had plenty of color.
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...
So far, a sturdy, reliable camera that takes great photos & video.

Summary: This is a great little point-and-shoot camera. I purchased it after my 300 HS was stolen, and I've been enjoying it very much. I won't go over ALL the great features, just the basics. The zoom (both optical and digital) are very high-quality for a point-and-shoot of this price. The macro works exceptionally well.
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.
