Canon PowerShot Elph 150 IS

 

The Canon PowerShot Elph 150 IS packs a long zoom lens into a small body, but its images have way too much noise.

Inexpensive. 10x zoom range. Sharp images. 24mm wide-angle lens. Compact.

Very noisy images. Low-resolution rear display. Video limited to 720p.

Performance and Conclusions The Elph starts and shoots in a reasonable 1.4 seconds, but it's a little slow to focus, requiring 0.2-second to do so, and can only shoot a frame every 1.5 seconds in continuous drive mode. The Sony WX80 is a little slower...

Canon Powershot ELPH 150 IS

 

Canon's new PowerShot ELPH 150 IS is one of three new affordable ELPH cameras for spring 2014. As the priciest model, it includes everything from the ELPH 135 and ELPH 140 IS --which we'll get into momentarily -- but adds in a larger 20.0-megapixel CCD...

Canon 150 IS Review

 

Originally, the Canon ELPH camera line was known for a few main things: compact bodies with approachable handling and attractive designs. More than that, though, the Canon ELPH 150 IS is also extremely affordable. With a list price of just US$150,...

Available from February 2014 in blue, red, silver and black, the Canon PowerShot ELPH 150 IS is priced at around US$150.

Ok camera

 

This was a gift for my girlfriend. She likes it other than having to manually turn off the auto flash as it gets annoying

Great pixels and can take a smooth picture as well as camera shots. Zoom is pretty awesome as it can zoom pretty far

The only gripe I have with this camera is the auto flash sucks! No matter the light or dark it will flash with every picture. Had to manually turn off as ti would flash on a bright sunny day!

Greatness in a Camera
