Canon ELPH 300 HS System

Incredibly Thin. Incredibly Powerful.

Thin Is In

At less than an inch deep and weighing just under five ounces, the PowerShot 300 HS will fit right in your pocket, but it packs plenty of power into its sleek point-and-shoot body. A 24mm ultra wide-angle lens with a powerful 5x optical zoom gives you the versatility to shoot in any number of situations, and the optical image stabilizer keeps things from getting too shaky when you're zoomed in tight. Whether you're out partying or just walking around town, you don't need to sacrifice style for power--the PowerShot ELPH 300 HS has got you covered for capturing great photos effortlessly.

No More Dark Photos

Canon's HS SYSTEM improves shooting in low-light situations without the need for a flash, and lowers noise levels at higher ISO settings.

The Canon HS SYSTEM takes the frustration out of low-light shooting, delivering clear, blur-free shots with all the ambiance intact, and freeing you from the sometimes unwanted effects of using the flash. Beautiful low-light shots are possible at both low and high ISO speeds, and the dynamic range is expanded to retain maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas.

The system is the result of two technologies brought together in this compact PowerShot. The first is the 12.1 Megapixel CMOS Sensor, which positions the light-receiving surface for optimal light reception. More light means clearer, blur-free images with plenty of detail and nuance, even in dark areas. Working together with the CMOS sensor to deliver the HS SYSTEM is Canon's advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor, which actively reduces noise and delivers high speed image processing.

The HS Megapixel Advantage

There's more to megapixels. Canon's HS System provides dramatically greater sensitivity than your average camera with identical or greater megapixel counts. That means you don't need excessive megapixels to achieve spectacular images with minimal noise, and you get equally impressive results out of the 12.1 megapixel ELPH 300 HS.

Experiencing the brilliance of HD video in a Canon PowerShot ELPH digital camera has never been easier. With the convenient dedicated movie button, you'll be able to instantly record everyday moments in high-definition detail at the push of a button. Record in Full 1080p HD with stereo sound, and pick up the optional HTC-100 HDMI cable for viewing your footage directly on your HDTV.

You can also use the optical zoom while shooting video, so you can get in nice and close--plus, no need to worry about shaky footage thanks to dynamic image stabilization to keep your videos steady!

Super Slow Motion Movie will record your clips at a high speed, so that when you watch your videos, they'll play back in slow motion--a great feature for analyzing sports play-by-play, or just for creating fun visual effects.

Advanced Smart AUTO for Stills and Videos that Shine

The PowerShot ELPH 300 HS digital camera takes the quality of your still images and videos to a whole new level--automatically. The camera's advanced Smart AUTO system detects a wealth of information about the scene you're shooting, then automatically selects the optimal settings for you. Now with an expanded range of 32 shooting scenarios, the camera handles a wide variety of situations, freeing you up to concentrate on composing your shot and capturing the moment you're looking for. From portraits to landscapes to action scenes, the PowerShot ELPH 300 HS digital camera has you covered, whether you're shooting stills or videos.

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

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.
