Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 Review
Although I am not a photographer by profession but photography is my passion. I am always on a hunt for various professional cameras offering different features. I had been planning to visit African safaris and to capture all the beautiful landscape so I needed a perfect digital camera. And here I am with Canon Power shot 300 HS digital camera. Its outlook is black, sleek, and elegant and has a smooth surface. A perfect design and perfect quality! It has an extra characteristic of video making. It is handy, small in size, light in weight and easily carried around especially during travels. The display is very good; buttons are flexible and easy to press plus the touch screen is an additional feature helps to focus on a particular area of the picture or the video. It has USB and HDMI ports as well for computer connectivity.
- First of all the image quality is excellent. Not only is that but the image processing wonderful due to 300 HS system a higher ISO. After a test I could see and compare how clear, soft and detailed image it consistently delivers. The extra detail feature is due to the 12.1 MP versions. The sharpness of the image can be analyzed when zoomed in and out. It barely takes 2 seconds to capture the picture as you click. As far as the software is concerned, Canon software is satisfactory so far. Battery is stronger and reliable. Memory card is remarkable, I took thousands of pictures and I had no issues with the memory status. It has dual zoom options, digital and optical both. Some people do not prefer fast zooms however; in case of capturing natural landscape slow zoom is better.
- Coming to the best feature of this digital cam is its video recording option. Obviously it can’t be compared to a professional video camera yet it serves the purpose well. If you have a good lighting then it works great. In low lights the video is noisy and rough. It automatically detects face or even faces all you have to do is to work a little with changing options here and there.
Others might have complaints with regards to the video but as I have mentioned already that it does a great job with scenerie’s etc. I give it full stars!
- Excellent picture quality
- Consistent delivery
- Video recording options
- Zooming issues
- Video problematic in low lights
