Comments about Canon ELPH 300 HS Red Powershot 12.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

It records in HD, but the only thing that's missing is an HDMI connection to the TV or HD reciever, etc. Comes with the standard 3-prong, one for video, two for audio, connection, plus one USB connection for your computer.

Works great!

    Comments about Canon ELPH 300 HS Red Powershot 12.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

    I bought this for a 3 week tour of Italy and it took really nice pictures. I only charged the camera 2x the whole trip, and I took about 1100 pictures. Maybe 100 were not so great but mainly due to my shaky hand or I just didn't frame the picture nicely. Pictures were crisp, bright, natural looking. I left the Auto setting on the entire time and the camera adjusted nicely to my particular setting - outdoor, landscapes, indoors, facial, etc. Was really really happy with the purchase, and very happy with Canon products overall.

      Comments about Canon ELPH 300 HS Red Powershot 12.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

      Picked this up to replace an older Canon Powershot that had reached the unexpected end of its lifetime just before a two week get away to Alaska. I hated not being able to give the camera a true test (to learn its quirks and bugs) before heading out, but there simply was no time. The pictures taken on the trip - landscapes and people came out incredibly well. What impresses me the most about this camera is the low-light capabilities... something that all previous point-and-shoots I had used couldn't come close to. People in low light without a flash actually come out without noise, and the flash (when needed - ie. a bright backdrop) filled the subjects naturally. Some of the modes are great - the ability to take night shots of the Victoria, BC skyline without a tripod was impressive. The Auto setting does a great job most of the time, and flipping to a semi-manual mode was easy and intuitive. If I had any complaints, its the images can come out a little "soft" compared to cameras I've used in the past due to the CMOS image sensor. The image isn't 'bad' though and is easily remedied through software later if need be (and only when doing some zooming/cropping). I think thats a reasonable trade off for the low light capabilities.

        Comments about Canon ELPH 300 HS Black Powershot 12.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

        I purchase this camera because I didn't want to carry my bulky Nikon D70 to my Cancun trip. I was very happy with compact size of my new Canon. However, my satisfaction does not end with the size. The camera feels very solid, despite the small size. It has 5.0X optical zoom and 20X total zoom coupled with digital zoom. a fairly good zoom capability given the size. I was particularly happy with the picture quality. Color was very vivid, even in faily low light codition. When I used low sutter speed setting, I've noticed some movement in pictures however.

        Overall, I recommend this camera for those who want a compact, solid, great quality camera with easy operability.
