Do you want your new digital camera to be around the size of a credit card? The Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS is a very compact camera that will fit easily into your pocket. It measures 2.2-inch by 3.6-inch width, 0.8 inch depth and weighs just 4.3 ounces. This camera has a coarse finish that makes it easy to grip and therefore is very suitable for on the move photography.
Although this camera is extremely lightweight and stylish, its good looks are not all that the camera has going for it. The lens has a focal length of 24-120mm (35mm equivalent) and a corresponding aperture of f/2.7-f/5.9 which makes it brighter and wider than the average point and shoot available in the market. This camera also has a 5X optical zoom which is perfect for getting the perfect image, even if your subject isn’t standing right in front of you. The zoom is easy to use because it is a wheel that surrounds the shutter button for easy access.
On the left side of the camera, you’ll find various connectivity ports like HDMI and USB, which are covered by a small flap to keep them hidden away when not in use. The rest of the controls on the back are very easy to use. There is a dedicated playback button, menu and video record buttons, a rocker switch between Auto and Program shooting modes and a five-way directional pad that toggles functions like macro and flash. The menu is navigated on the 2.7 inch LCD display which is bright and colorful. The user interface is quite similar to most of the other Canon models such as the Canon PowerShot SX230 HS. It is icon-based menu with helpful explanation text popping up whenever you scroll over an icon. Some of the lesser-used options are buried in menu, which is a good thing, as it does not make the interface cluttered. The most important functions have either dedicated buttons or they are easily accessible.
This camera is available in three colors – red, black and silver. We’ve got a great deal on the red model for a limited time. If you want a fantastic digital camera at a great price, then buy the Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS here today.
