Good Little Vacation/Family Events Camera

Summary: I really have enjoyed this little camera. It is light-weight and very portable. It is more versatile than my IPhone camera. It was inexpensive. It has held up to weekend trips and somewhat shabby treatment. We can do the basics easily with it--the we being me, the mom, and our special needs daughter, and not the more tech-savvy hubby.
Summary: I don't like the micro sd card it is too hard to get out when downloading pictures, and you have to carry an adapter with you if printing pictures at a kiosk. I do like the purple color, and the size and the pictures that it takes. I would have preferred to have a printed manual instead of having to download one. I have been using Canon cameras for many years. A granddaughter has a Nikkon which takes rapid pictures - I would like that feature...... mine is slow.
Summary: This camera is great because of its size. It is easy to take almost anywhere, so you never regret a lack of photo record. It has a very good zoom and produces decent quality photos. The image screen is difficult to see outside in bright sunlight, and with no viewfinder for the eye, sometimes you have to take pictures and just hope for the best. After two years, the lens of my camera got jammed open and the repair estimate was too high to warrant the repair.
Excerpt: I have owned many compact cameras and this is by far the best! Canon's HS Sensor is increadible for quality in low light and for pin sharp photographs. When looking for a compact camera in todays market its easy to buy into Megapixels, GPS, Touchscreen etc however Canon have focused on the importance of image quality! If buying at the moment, I strongly recomend a HS camera. Problems: None To date.
Summary: I've owned a few Canon Elphs over the past dozen years ... basically massive use of my first 100 and my teenage son's trip to Europe with my replacement 1000 necessitated this third model. I researched long and hard, poring over features, reviews, specifications and test images. This is by far the best balance of pixels, zoom, automatic features, manual functions, and -- of course with the Elph line -- portability and durability that ensures that you always have your...
Summary: I use it often, I have 3 kids. The detail on this little camera is GREAT. Close up images are clear, far shots capture tiny details. I love having the record button set apart by itself so I am not fussing around with settings. Another great point about the settings, is that you can switch from Auto to your own chosen settings very easily. A new great setting is the auto red-eye fix. You don't have to fiddle around with computer software trying to clean up people's eyes.
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: 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!
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.
