Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS review

 

Canon was falling a bit behind with its PowerShot Elph series of ultracompact cameras. Not in photo quality, but with features, shooting performance, and overall value. For 2011, though, Canon snapped back thanks to the addition of backside-illuminated...

The Canon PowerShot Elph 300 HS is a fun-to-use ultracompact with excellent photo quality even if just left in auto.

The 300 HS might be too small for some, and accessing its shooting modes other than auto is laborious.

If you're looking for a nice, simple ultracompact for use indoors and out, you'll want to strongly consider the Canon PowerShot Elph 300 HS.

Canon PowerShot Elph 300 HS

 

The sleek and small Canon PowerShot Elph 300 HS, with features slightly above entry level with a price to match, is a solid point-and-shoot digital camera.

Small, compact body. Fast performance. Sharp images. Shoots 1080p video. Can zoom and focus while recording video.

Body feels like sandpaper.

Canon Powershot ELPH 300 HS Review

 

The ELPH 300 HS is an awesome ultra-compact digicam that offers unmatched features and performance for a sub $250 camera; especially one of this size. Read more in our Full Conclusion.

Awesome build quality ; Durable, and super slim metal exterior ; Metal Tripod mount ; Excellent image quality for a compact camera ; Blazing fast shooting performance ; Loads of useful exposure options for both stills and video ; Captures very nice...

LCD screen could have been bigger ; Flash is quite weak (which is to be expected from a camera this small) ; Lens bezels dented easily, which raises some concern; although operation was not effected ; The standard burst mode didn't live up to Canon's...

Canon IXUS 300 HS Digital camera review

 

The Canon IXUS camera series is made up of quite a few generations. Canon frequently introduces its design cameras that are especially aimed at the trendy amateur photographer. Now and then a camera turns out to not only be designed stylishly, but also...

The Canon IXUS 300 HS is an especially fine camera and a valuable addition to the current IXUS series of cameras. The Canon IXUS cameras have actually always been successful, from the first digital IXUS. It is an extensive series of cameras where...

Canon IXUS 220 HS Review

 

The Canon IXUS 220 HS (also known as the PowerShot ELPH 300 HS) is a new sleek, slim and stylish compact digital camera. Key features of the IXUS 220 include a back-illuminated 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor, 5x 24-120mm lens with an optical image...

OK, so it doesn't offer GPS, 3D shooting mode, moisture resistance or a broad focal range, but, being pocket friendly, low cost and competent anyway, could the Canon IXUS 220 HS possibly be your next travel accessory? In its favour it certainly lives...

Canon IXUS 300 HS Review

 

The Canon IXUS 300 HS (also known as the SD4000 IS Digital ELPH) is a premium compact camera with some advanced features that grab the attention of any discerning photographer. These include a back-illuminated 10 megapixel CMOS sensor, a 3.8x, 28-106mm...

The Canon IXUS 300 HS is a largely successful attempt to marry the style of the IXUS range with a fast lens and excellent image sensor, marred somewhat by an eye-watering price and a lack of refinement in the handling department. With a 10 megapixel...

Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS

 

Slim and user-friendly with a 24-120mm lens, we thought the Canon 300's images and Full HD video were just right for recording the fun wherever you go, ideal for the target market at this price.

The Canon PowerShot 300 HS is a very capable camera that captures 24mm wide-angle images, yet slips into a pocket with ease. Its 12-megapixel sensor doesn't quite deliver what last year's 12-megapixel CCDs did in terms of print size, but it still...

Canon ELPH 300 HS / IXUS 220 HS

 

The ELPH 300 HS / IXUS 220 HS has become the best-selling point-and-shoot camera in Canon's 2011 range for good reason. It delivers a canny balance of a decent lens range in a slim package at an affordable price. Yes there are models with longer zooms,...

Super-slim stylish compact design., 24mm equivalent wide angle., 1080p24 movie mode., Scene mode movies and super slo mo., Excellent image quality

Relatively small 2.7inch screen., Lengthy linear exposure mode menu

Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS Review

 

Totally pocketable, Attractive, solid-feeling metal body, True wide-angle 5x zoom lens with optical image stabilization, 1080p full HD video, Tracking auto focus works well, Nice image quality for a super compact camera, Smart Auto and 32 scene modes...

Limited controls won’t be good for everyone, Tends to blow out highlight details in outdoor photos, 5x zoom lens doesn’t offer great telephoto reach

Canon IXUS 220HS - Keeping It Plain and Simple

 

With a CMOS sensor packed into a 19.5mm thin body and the new HS system backing it up, how will the Canon IXUS 220 HS perform despite bringing nothing groundbreaking to the table? We find out how this newcomer fares against its predecessors.

Quick auto-focusLightweightGood ISO performance

Generic designMight be too small for those with larger hands
