Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS


$249.99 Released January, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Camera looks really cool, comes in some great bright colors. Light weight enough to stick in your pocket without it pulling down on your shirt too bad. Thin, small design, takes up minimal space.

The Cons:Battery life isn't very good, drains them pretty quick. Sound in HD video is poor, any bass range results in lots of distortion. Getting a scene mode takes a few seconds, not great for a quick opportunity shot.

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS is a colorful, ultra-thin compact digital camera announced in February 2010. It features a 24mm ultra wide-angle 5x optical zoom lens, making it, according to Canon, the first of its kind.

Like its peers, the ELPH 100 HS and ELPH 500 HS, which were released during the same time, the ELPH 300 HS can capture 12.1MP still images in JPEG and record 1080p HD videos in MOV. Key to the Canon ELPH and its peers is its ability for enhanced low-light shooting, courtesy of an updated DIGIC 4 Image Processor.
