Canon 300 HS Features

  • Don't be fooled by the PowerShot 300 HS digital camera's incredibly smooth and lustrous eye-catching design because once it's in your hands, you'll discover that the slimmest digital camera with a 24mm ultra Wide-Angle lens in the world packs a real big technological punch!
  • Inside this tiny, fit-in-your-pocket camera is a powerful 5x Optical Zoom with a 24mm ultra Wide-Angle lens that provides you with the versatility you need to photograph in an array of situations
  • The Canon HS system delivers clear, blur-free shots with all the ambiance intact and frees you from the sometimes unwanted effects of using the flash
  • Beautiful low light shots are possible at both low and high ISO speeds and the dynamic range is expanded to retain maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The system is the result of two technologies brought together in a compact PowerShot
  • The first is the 12.1 Megapixel CMOS Sensor, which positions the light-receiving surface for optimal light reception. More light means clearer, blur-free images with plenty of detail and nuance, even in dark areas
  • Working together with the CMOS sensor to deliver the HS system is Canon's advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor, which actively reduces noise and delivers high speed image processing
  • Experiencing the brilliance of Full 1080p HD video in a Canon PowerShot ELPH digital camera has never been easier. With the convenient dedicated movie button, you'll be able to instantly record everyday moments in amazing life-like realism at a push of a button
  • You can also operate the optical zoom while shooting video so you can get in close-but don't worry about shaky footage because Dynamic IS will help keep your videos steady!
  • The PowerShot ELPH 300 HS digital camera is equipped with High-Speed Burst Mode that can capture 8.0 frames per second, letting you catch the sequence of the action-a feature great for using at sport events
  • You can also add a fun slow motion effect to you videos with Super Slow Motion Movie. Super Slow Motion Movie will record your clips at a high speed so that when you watch your videos, they'll play back in slow motion-a feature also useful for analyzing a play-by-play of sports moves
  • The PowerShot ELPH 300 HS digital camera takes the quality of your still images and videos to a whole new level - automatically. The camera's advanced Smart AUTO system detects a wealth of information about the scene you're shooting, then automatically selects the optimal settings for you
  • Now with an expanded range of 32 shooting scenarios, the camera handles a wide variety of situations, freeing you up to concentrate on composing your shot and capturing the moment you're looking for
  • Using the Movie Digest Mode, you can have the camera automatically record a short video clip (up to approximately 4 sec) every time you shoot a still image. The camera will then combine an entire day's worth of clips into a single video. No editing required - Movie Digest Mode does all the work
  • Add some vintage nostalgia with Toy Camera Effect. Toy Camera Effect recreates this look by darkening the edges to make them appear as if they were photographed through a pinhole lens and adding contrast
  • Monochrome lets you sway away from the usual black & white combination. Now you can choose from three single-toned effects: Black & White, Sepia or Blue to really give your photos the effect you're looking for
