Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS Review

 

Although the Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS camera isn't a high-end camera that will compare favorably with interchangeable lens models or fixed lens models with large image sensors, you'll find that the ELPH 330 stacks up well when comparing it to...

Image quality is very good for a camera with a 1/2.3-inch image sensor ; Performs well at low and mid-range ISO settings with minimal noise problems ; Nice to find 10x optical zoom in thin camera ; Start-up times are fast ; Shutter lag is not...

Control buttons on back of camera are too small and too tight to the camera body ; Minimal manual control options ; Menu structure is a little odd and requires some practice to use efficiently ; Full 1080p HD video limited to 24 frames per second ;...

Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS Review

 

Canon's ELPH subset in the PowerShot point-and-shoot line has always been known for its compact and sexy-looking cameras, but they go beyond just good looks. They are highly capable cameras that shoot photos with good image quality. With the new...

Compact, svelte design ; Wi-Fi connectivity with smartphones ; Speedy performance ; Good image quality

Wi-Fi can be a nuisance to set up ; Video is decent, but not as strong as other Canon cams ; Convoluted menu navigation

The PowerShot ELPH 330 HS has a lot of good qualities, but it may not be good enough to fend off smartphones when it comes to casual photography.

One of the best cameras you can buy for less than $250, the svelte, 10x-zoom Canon PowerShot Elph 330 HS takes beautiful pictures and lets you send them instantaneously with integrated Wi-Fi.

Sharp lens. Integrated Wi-Fi. 10x zoom range. Excellent high ISO performance. Short shutter lag. Includes external battery charger

Small-aperture lens. Lacks full manual controls. 1080p video limited to 24fps

The Canon PowerShot Elph 330 HS ($229.99 direct) is one of the best compact cameras that you can buy for under $250. It's easy for anyone to use, has a generous 10x zoom range, and allows you to share photos via built-in Wi-Fi. Most importantly, the...

Looking for a great all-around point-and-shoot? Make a date with the Canon PowerShot 330 HS.

When most people already carry around a competent smartphone camera in their pocket, it might seem a little silly to shell out for a second dedicated camera. But with the 330 HS you're getting the advantage of a 10x optical zoom and acceptable...

Canon PowerShot 330 HS

 

There are a few positive changes here, but not enough to justify the price.

10x optical zoom in a slim body; Familiar interface should be understood by many

At MSRP of $229.99, an older discounted model is likely a better deal; Improved WiFi still pales in comparison to smarter devices

If you’ve got a working PowerShot from the last two years, the Canon 330 HS doesn’t provide a compelling reason to upgrade.

Good low-light performance

 

I thought that the "digest" movie was a pretty cheesy feature at first, but after I got back from an extended trip overseas with it on, I actually kind of liked the feature. (It records time during auto-focus leading up to your actual shot.) It had...

Excellent low-light performance for the cost. Features, for cost, are pretty good. Auto mode selection is pretty intelligent. I've rarely had it mis-judge a scene to the point where it did something horrible with the image. Video is of good quality....

It can be clumsy to activate some of the few manual controls the camera grants the user. I would have liked to see a HDR mode on the camera. Zoom is pretty loud when recording video - very distracting. Wifi access was kind of annoying to set up, so I...

Best little camera ever!

 

Camera fits in my shirt pocket, so I don\'t have to carry it. The operation is simple and easy, and the option for vivid colors is amazing. The zoom is just right for landscape and for wildlife. The pink color ensures I never lose it. I love this...

IT IS ALL ABOUT PICTURE QUALITY

 

I mostly take pictures of bear in the smokey mountians(CADES COVE) and I love chasing the grand kids around and taking their pictures. The canon 330 is small enough to carry every place you go for those spontaneous grandkids pictures. The 330 has a...
