Summary: There is NO specific operator's manual for this camera...they send you one for another model with this model as a sub-title on the cover, but the directions are for the other model and they don't translate to this model. Also, they made some functions use soft keys rather than mechanical keys which makes the camera much harder to use.
Summary: The battery of this camera sucks! I can't even take 20 minutes of video after it was fully charged. And it's slow to focus, can't take any action photos. Whenever it flashes, it takes also a second to save the picture to card. It always shows busy and you can't do anything with it. If possible I'd like to return it!
Summary: I bought this product while in the US and brought it back to Europe. The wifi is way too complicated to set up and it has in fact been impossible for met to get going - and while I am not a geek I am not totally lost either. It has not been possible for me to make the necessary registration of the product through the Canon Image Gateway software since the product is not sold where I am in Europe. Amazing Canon would launch such a frankly s***ty wifi-enabled product.
Summary: I really wanted to like this camera having an Elph 110. What drew me to this product was the price and the WIFI capabilities. Didn't care about the touchscreen, as that only leaves smudges and I have enough "smart" screens/monitors to clean as it is. But I'm sending it back and this is why: After following the copious directions in the user manual, installing the software, connecting the camera via the USB cable, getting the latest versions of the software, signing up...
Summary: I have an advanced degree (doesn't mean anything, except good at following instructions) and I have so far tried for 3 hours to connect Wi Fi features and been unsuccessful. I think this is going back.
Pictures are okay, but don't expect anything else.

Summary: The WiFi functionality of this camera just does not work. Canon's apps that should allow you to transfer photos wireless from the camera to your smartphone don't work. If I was not so lazy, I'd return it.
Summary: We have been users of Canon Cameras for years - this is the first camera that we have had to call a true disaster. The Touch screen controls are constantly getting in the way of just point and click. Priority is given to the touch screen rather than the top shutter button. This is with the touch screen to shoot mode disabled. The camera is constantly trying to re-focus with every casual brush while handling to take the real shot.
Summary: The ELPH 320 Power Shot takes a good photo however if you are buying this camera for the ease of uploading image via wifi. Don't. I failed to get two different computers running windows 7 to connect with the device. Both computers could see the device but could not connect. I had no problem registering the device with my wifi point but the only way you are going to transfer an image to a computer is with the USB umbilical. I am returning the Camera as dysfunctional.
