Summary: This camera takes good photos—when it will take photos. Even on the Auto setting, or with the "stability enforcer" turned off, I have to press the "shoot" button several times before the camera takes the shot, and sometimes it simply will not.
Summary: Bought it in December 2011. First day of a 3-week vacation January 2013 the lens froze in the extended position and will not retract. Looked online for cures, but nothing has worked so far. Amazing how it broke itself 1 month out of warranty. (I note in the reviews others have had the same issue.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: My new Canon PowerShot ELPH310 was used for the first time on our family cruise. Two days into the cruise/usage of the camera, I turned the camera on and lens error appeared in the screen. The lens would not reset nor close. Nothing but a black display. No more pictures of our family!
Summary: My daughter was looking to upgrade her camera to one that would take 1080 video for her YouTube channel. After doing a bunch of research we settled on the Canon ELPH 310 HS. The ElPH 300 is very highly rated and used a lot on YouTube. The 310 HS seemed to be even better so that is what we bought.
