Summary: I have had and used this camera for almost a year now. It works very well in automatic mode, the mode I primarily use. The only problem is a slight lag between pictures, especially if a flash is required. The battery, however, holds it's charge for much longer than I expected.
Conclusion: I have had nothing but problems with this camera so far. Purchased this back in January 2014 and it is a complete headache. Every month there is a communication error and the wifi connectivity is a joke! I would not recommend this to anyone.
Great, easy to use instructions. outstanding photos. battery lasts!

Summary: ease of use for slightly better than casual user: very good. I used to use a Minolta slr 35mm camera in the 70s & 80s with a 75-300 zoom lens. I can't get zoom shots of wildlife, eagles & hawks on the wing like that, but the camcorder function is very nice, and I take lots of pix of my fast-moving...
Summary: Bought this little camera to go in an underwater casing for a trip to Puerto Rico. It performed great! The video was smooth and the stabilization on it was wonderful. I took a 7D along with me on the trip and the video compared to the 7D was what a lot better than I expected from a point and shoot!
Great little camera with more to offer than cell phone cameras

Summary: In a world where many have switched over to photography via cell phone, this is a refreshing better choice for me. I have purchased some previous Cannon cameras of this kind and this last version is even better with way more functions than I know how to use, but I keep learning as I go.
Conclusion: Phenomenon: In some PowerShot ELPH 330HS compact digital cameras, there is a possibility that the following operation errors may occur due to insufficient contact between the camera’s battery terminal and the battery, even when the battery has sufficient power remaining.
Summary: Camera is a replacement for my Canon ELPH 300 that I used for many years. This is the same size and takes the same battery. The LCD viewfinder on the 330 is brighter and the camera sensor seems more capable of taking low light photos.
Conclusion: About a month after we got this camera we started getting a message to charge the battery, even when the battery was fully charged. The camera wouldn't turn on until you pulled out the battery and put it back in. So we replaced the battery, thinking it was the problem.
Summary: The camera is great for the price. As mentioned elsewhere, there is a battery issue, Canon recognizes it, and it will be inspected and repaired free of charge if you send it to their office in VA.
Summary: I bought this model to replace one I had used for over 5 years. I like the size and ease of use. We got a lemon. Even when fully charged, sometimes it won't turn on stating, 'charge the battery.' We thought it could be a faulty battery. I bought a new battery and still have the problem.
