Cons: Touch screen a little insensitive., No physical movie record button., Relatively large and heavy.
Summary: The Canon PowerShot ELPH 500 HS wants to do it all. It wants to capture a style-conscious market with its smooth curves and 3.2-inch touchscreen. It wants to be brighter than the competition with a fast f/2 lens. It wants be a movie-maker with 1080p HD recording capability.

Excerpt: Canon IXUS 310 HS MRP: Rs 19,999 Street price: Rs 19,395 ( Flipkart.com ; Letsbuy.com ) For those who want style and fashion even in cameras, Canon has the IXUS series with sculpted bodies and decent specs.
Pros: Good image quality; Stylish form factor; 1080p recording; Large touch screen with good visibility.
Cons: Noise in images and videos; Screen not very responsive; No dedicated video record button; Limited manual focus; Video capture file size restricted to 4 GB; Expensive.
Conclusion: The Canon IXUS 310 HS’ wow factor is delivered by the implementation of the monolith-like back screen, but we did find ourselves missing those physical controls on occasion when in a hurry to find particular settings.

Cons: Touchscreen control takes some getting used to, and you’re paying a slight premium over similar spec models because of it
