Excellent Pocket Camera for Everyday Use
5 days ago
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. My only criticism is that the price here is lower than that on Canon's own website.
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. About 11 months later we had the same problem, so we used a battery from our previous Canon, which worked fine in that old camera.
330 outperforms my old 850,but prefer old software

Conclusion: I switched from full-sized SLRs to pocket-sized ELPHs seven years ago, and never looked back. My ELPH 330 does everything I need in a camera, and having it with me at all times when I am on the road means I lose fewer image opportunities than I did with my larger cameras that were more intrusive. The ELPH 330 outperforms my older ELPH 850, especially in telephoto shots -- the optics have been improved greatly.
Pros: Good Low-Light Performance, excellent image quality, Bright LCD, Lightweight/Portable, easy to use
Cons: slow imagebrowser software, fragile lens cover may not open fully
Conclusion: For a simple point-and-shoot camera the battery life seems to be just fine for me. I don't shoot a lot of pics. I bought 2 new batteries at Best-Buy and charge them up and keep them with me for when I need them. I bought the camera because I needed a nice wide-angle camera to get all of the nature scenes on my winter vacation trip to Cuba. The camera worked really nice, and the images that come out of it on bright days are really nice.
Pros: Good Low-Light Performance, Nice features/settings, excellent image quality, Bright LCD, Lightweight/Portable, Simple controls/menu, easy to use
Conclusion: I really like the camera...I would have reviewed just the camera much higher...but the software is getting worse..This is my 3rd canon camera and previously the software to download pictures worked fine...I don't expect much...just let me download untransferred images...this is way too high a hurdle for the current canon team. No longer does the software popup...I how have to find a 3rd party application to to do this.
Pros: Good Low-Light Performance, excellent image quality, Lightweight/Portable, Simple controls/menu, easy to use
This model proved to be very fragile and not able to endure much abuse ...

Summary: Bought this camera as a replacement to a similar Canon I bought some years ago that held up and worked famously for several years. It has been dropped and bounced around on back packing trips, etc. and it still worked well and took awesome pictures. This one sadly only lasted six months. Part of this was my fault. It slipped out of my hands and landed in a dusty spot then the lens wouldn't open. Got it home and took the case apart a bit thinking I could clean it - nope.
Summary: This little camera is great for quick photos or just video blogging. Very lightweight and compact. It's a shame there's no dedicated delete button but the camera's other specs make up for it. Films in hd wonderfully. I love it.
Conclusion: Bought this camera after many positive reviews and I agree, a great , small, point and shoot. Image quality is excellent which is what I was looking for in a compact camera. Can't go wrong with this camera.
Pros: good battery life, excellent image quality, Lightweight/Portable, easy to use
Summary: So I bought a camera which was very highly recommended, and it lives up to all the hype! Literally, "open the box, take pictures!" I would like to be able to say some really esoteric, high-falutin' trash talk, but that would be dismissed fast, so just know that Canon "dood it" !
