The Canon PowerShot ELPH 320 HS Digital Camera is slim, brightly colored and easy to use, but it also allows you to go far beyond the basics for unlimited creative potential. And it all starts with the 16.1Mp CMOS sensor for stunning still images and high-quality 1080p HD videos. Canon's HS SYSTEM puts those powerful 16.1 megapixels at your disposal with the marriage of the CMOS sensor and the DIGIC 5 Image Processor. The processor not only puts files onto your memory card quickly and efficiently, it also expands the ISO range, adjusting to even low-light situations for blur-free images. The sensor, as previously mentioned, helps you capture impressive still or video files.
The ELPH 320 HS employs various features to help you make the most of each situation. For instance, the 5x optical zoom lets you capture far-off subjects without a loss in image quality. Intelligent IS automatically chooses from six different optical image stabilization modes to prevent blur and motion, giving you the sharpest, clearest photo possible. The 3.2" PureColor Touch-Screen LCD has Touch Shutter to make it even easier to capture your images. Of course, the 24-120mm (35mm equivalent) lens gives you a wide zoom range to shoot it all: group shots, landscapes, buildings, etc.
When it comes to HD video, this camera does more than just record. Video is recorded at 1920 x 1080p high definition at 24 frames per second. A dedicated Movie Button helps you start shooting video faster t oo, without having to search through menus.
I have really enjoyed this camera since receiveing it a few weeks ago. The photos are superb in both well and poorly lit settings. The video quality is about the best I have seen on a sub-$150 camera. The only complaints I have so far are the cheap feeling battery door, the comparatively poor battery life and the general pointlessness of the wifi
Camera is actually pink...but I still love it. Love it for a quick picture...have 4 other canons and love them all!
This is a great camera for the price. The first one we received must have had a couple of factory defects. After a day of shooting the camera gave a memory card error. The only way to get it to work was to do a low-level format causing us to lose some images. Then, a few days later it gave a lens error and shut down without retracting the lens. Adorama was very cool about it and they are replacing the camera. Haven't received replacement yet but, based on previous experience with Canon PowerShot, I expect it will be just fine.
It is a great small litte camera. The reason I bought this camera was for portability. Its lens is great and bright. There are a few issues, the battery bay is flimsy and the touch screen is resistive vs capacitive like a iphones or sg3. All in all great buy its cheap!
I probably bought the wrong camera for me. I find all the things one can do with this camera overwhelming. I just need a simple to operate piece of equipment. I bought it for a trip because of the compact size. Hopefully, I will be able to have someone help me with the Wi-fi connections.I also miss a view finder. When in bright sunlight, it is difficult to see what is on the screen.
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. We even eliminated some icons and moved others around (a very nice feature) but the camera was consistently fiddling with responding to the touch screen instead of just taking the shot! It is slow. It uses power at over twice the rate as our Canon PowerShot Elph 110 (which is a dream). It does a terrible job on motion photos and ruined a lot of shot opportunities on our recent trip. We are going to buy something else - we can't afford to have our special moments ruined by this camera.
FOR PERSONAL & TRAVEL ONLY. POCKET SIZE...BUT YOU NEED 3 BATTERIES FOR TAKING A LOT OF PICTURES...BATTERY DRAINS EASILY.
A great backup to my DSLR
Using for my simple house use.. and i thing its very good
Although I am still learning how to use my camera, I am enjoying taking pictures with it, nonetheless. The prints of the pictures we took came out great. Great buy.
