Hey! You should know that Canon has released a newer version of this product: the Canon PowerShot ELPH 340 HS.

PowerShot ELPH 330 HS boasts enhanced built-in Wi-Fi that enables you to comment on photos and share them to social networking sites quickly and easily – even within specific groups. The powerful new 10x Optical Zoom with 24mm Wide-Angle lens gets you up close and out wide to capture the world in a whole new way, while the Canon HS SYSTEM – the combination of a 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor – delivers sharply detailed images with vivid, natural color, even in dark lighting. You'll make memories last in beautifully realistic 1080p Full HD video with a press of the dedicated movie button, and use new Hybrid Auto to automatically create an optimized video overview of your day's activities. High Speed AF ensures well-focused action shots, and Intelligent IS delivers blur-free images. And now shoot longer on a single charge with power consumption-reducing ECO Mode.

Canon Reviews

Top quality optics, dependability, and convenience of use are just some of the reasons that customers choose Canon digital cameras. One of the top makers of digital cameras in the world today, Canon has attained a reputation for creating some of the best digital cameras and digital SLRs available on the market. Canon cameras are inevitably on the camera wish list of any consumer that desires a high quality camera.

Canon is not generally a cheap brand by any means. In spite of this, Canon digital cameras have achieved the best buy status. This proves that you get great value for the extra money. In the past few years, Canon has begun releasing several types that are more inexpensive, without cutting quality.

Canon cameras come in two main types—the smallest is the Powershot line, compact, point-and-shoot cameras that still maintain a reasonable level of image quality. Canon Powershot cameras range from budget point-and-shoots like the ELPH 115 to an advanced compact with a 1.5” sensor, the G1X Mark II. Typically, if you are going to buy a point-and-shoot on nothing but the reputation of the brand, Canon is a pretty safe bet.

The second type of Canon camera is the EOS line—the DSLRs. The EOS line has a solid reputation as well for performance across the board, including video. Canon has a wide range of options available too, from top of the line full frame professional models to small, entry-level DSLRs.

While other manufacturers are concentrating on mirrorless models and packing more power into smaller cameras, Canon doesn't seem to be following that trend exactly. They've released some smaller DSLRs like the SL1, but haven't been putting time into mirrorless models. Whether this is good or bad is a matter of personal opinion, but the models that are out there are, more often than not, solid performers.
