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.

I wanted a shirt pocket take everywhere camera and this is the best one I could find at a reasonable price, $200 at Costco. It meets my needs for photos and the video is surprisingly good. Macro is very good. It doesn't have a lot of manual controls but for that I will use my Canon G12 or Nikon P7000, or for more serious photography, my Nikon D300. The capabilities this camera has in a tiny size would have cost megabucks 10 years ago. One other thing, the zoom range is perfect for a ...

This is the fifth or sixth Canon camera I have owned. I bought it for its small size, reasonable (8x) optical zoom, and Canon image quality. Sad to say this has been an absolutely horrible camera. I bought the camera before an extended vacation. On day four the lens got stuck in the zoomed out position, I received the "lens error" message, and the camera was useless. Sent it back to Canon when I got home, received a new replacement, and on the second day of use had the same problem. ...

I've lost count of how many Canon Elph cameras I've had, some only briefly before I gave them away, others I used regularly. I have several other cameras too (mostly Fuji), but I like the compactness, quality, consistency of user interface, and the best-of-class auto exposure/focus/color of the Elph cameras. I don't like the graininess and limited dynamic range resulting from the tiny sensor. I really feel that Canon should have limited these cameras to 6 Mpixels, because I end up ...

I use a Nikon D7000, but wanted a small portable to carry in my pocket to replace an old Canon SD850IS that was no longer working. I bought two of the Elph 310HS cameras, one for me and one for my daughter. The cameras were only a few days old when I first started taking photos with my 310HS, but I immediately noticed a strong yellow-green tint throughout all of the photos. I then took the same photo subjects with my daughter's new 310HS. This one had much less of a yellow-green tint than ...

For its price and size, this camera has a lot to offer. This camera has the same sensor as several other Canon point-and-shoots released in Q3 of 2011. It is the cheapest and smallest with this sensor. Its extreme compactness combined with 8X optical zoom and fast handling (for a point-and-shoot) make this a winner for me. I shoot the Nikon D300s and D7000 SLRs when the situation demands / allows for it. So, this Canon point-and-shoot is all about getting acceptable results in an ...
