I didn't buy the Cannon ELPH 300H here but I wish I did cause I would've save $50. But, I just want to share with others that this is an excellent little pocket point and shoot and at a good price of $199. The photo quality is not what I'm used to with DSLR but overall this camera takes very very good photos. It is totally dummy proof. I love the HD video that it takes and very easy to down load to my Mac Air. The video is very sharp and if you get a 16GB class 6 memory card, you're set to take over 4000 photos and HD video to boot. I plan to carry this camera for my travel this year and I won't even need to carry a camcorder anymore.

I just got this camera three days ago after the postal strike. It has been sitting in the post office for days. I finally took it to my Canada day photo trip/test.

Best compact camera I got so far. I have Panasonic LX1 (very noisy starting from ISO 200), Fujifilm F31 (slow but very well balanced camera) and F200 EXR (rate between the LX1 and F31).

For Canon Powershot 300 ELPH:
Video: Excellent in video quality. Absolutely comparable with my Panasonic HD camcorder. Now I don't have to bring both camera and camcorder for my trip since Powershot 300 video equipped with zoom function.

Day time photos: At auto mode, light detection is quiet accurate. The picture color is sharp, nice and bright.

Night time photos: All photos are usable even at low light situation.

Can be better if:
Canon do not put all the preset program functions into one;
reposition the flash light so that shadow wouldn't at the corner for some shots and
longer battery life

Compact and sleek. Pictures sharp. Easy to operate. Had previously bought another camera last year ( a good make, I thought) but this one far outshines the colours and clarity of the pictures.

This camera doesn't seem to have a good shooting mode for landscapes. I tried several different modes but it would always choose an aperture of f/2.7 with a fast shutter speed (giving me a shallow depth of field, not really what I want for a landscape). Even when I selected a higher ISO value, it kept selecting a faster shutter speed. There is an option for landscape focus mode. I think this just controls how far away the auto-focus is a allowed to focus. What I ended up having to do is zoom in to a point where the lens doesn't support such a wide aperture. But this required me to back up in order to frame my shot. What this camera really needs is aperture and shutter priority modes... or at the very least a decent landscape shooting mode. Then I think I would want to own it.

I should also mention that the zooming mechanism failed shortly after I received it. Perhaps there is a robustness issue with this camera... or perhaps I just got a dud.

Great camera for the price, but you need to be careful about the screen as it scratches easily. the video quality is much better than photo quality

I have purchased this little camera three years ago (how time flies) and I have to say that for the price, this is perhaps the best point-and-shoot that I had hoped for. After three years of constant (ab)use, the black paint is now chipped on all the corners of the camera and the shutter occasionally gets stuck after turning it off... but it still works like a charm. The "Auto" mode takes very decent quality photos most of the time, and where it comes up short the "Advanced" photo features more than make up for it - for example, if you need to snap anything fast-moving (concerts, sports, windy weather) simply setting it to the "Pets and Kids" mode will take care of it for you - that is the one I keep preset, to be able to switch to it with one flick of a dial. Night photos could be better, but the "Handheld Night Scene" mode is not bad for still images. The only thing I find awkward is the interface that lets you delete images (too many button presses required in my opinion) and the only addition I would really like is for it to be waterproof so that I no longer have to worry when taking it out at the beach. But, so far so good, I've used it at the beach for three summers and it still works! My next camera is definitely going to be whatever the next generation of this little guy is.

Pros: affordable, very durable, good quality photos, many advanced features

Cons: paint chips easily, long term battery life could be better, videos take a wile to save

Thumbs up:

- fast, fast, fast shot-to-shot and autofocus

- dead easy to adjust the important stuff

- superb pics considering the tiny sensor

- 24mm equivalent wide angle

- spectacular HD video

- built like a tank (metal tripod thread even!)

- more than adequate battery life

- price...unbelievably cheap for what you get

Thumbs down:

- metal body means it's a tad heavy

Verdict:

Amazing accomplishment...congratulations Canon

This little camera - which is so small - was bought to replace a defective Panasonic Lumix.

Every camera brand has its pros and cons, especially about the colour treatment. I found that the Canon Elph 300 renders blues and greens in a very « flashy » way; which is quite a contrast with my precedent Lumix. I would say that the Canon delivers a more dynamic finish.

But... this camera has some downsides. 1 - When in Auto mode, it has some hard times to find the right scene to use; especially when indoor or whit moving subject such as child. 2- Also, I didn't find that it - contrary as advertised - performs so well in low light condition.

All in all : a very compact camera that gives a decent, sometimes very nice, photos.
