Canon PowerShot ELPH 500 HS
Released January, 2011
The Pros:Compact design is easy to slip into a pocket or purse. Use is extremely easy, no instructions required. Photos end up big and sharp, look great.
The Cons:Takes a long time for an image to save properly, can't take multiple photos quickly. Zoom doesn't have much of a range. Flash isn't effective outdoors, doesn't work in all contexts.

Unlike them, however, the Canon ELPH 500 hosts a touchscreen panel for focusing and navigating the menu with the swipe of a finger. Also included is a 24mm wide-angle, 4.4x optical zoom lens. The biggest upgrade on the ELPH 500 is the Smart AUTO system, a new Canon technology that can automatically adjust all photo/video settings based on what scene is chosen (32 available).
