STILL the best bang for the buck in compact point and shoots !!! From a day one aspect, it does what it is supposed to do. This is my 3rd Canon ELPH, previous models being the 110 HS and 330 HS.No discernable difference in picture quality when compared to my 330.Zoom has greatly improved, and has a bit better image stabilization vs the 330. MP4 has replaced the aged MOV format for videos.I am NOT a camera techie, and don't use half the features on this camera, but know a good picture when I see one, and one of the main things that impress me with the ELPH line is how great pictures and videos look when displayed on a large screen TV. That's the test for me... I've purchased other models that failed, and were returned.It's true that today, many cellphones take WONDERFULL pictures and vids, but you are NOT going find the kind of zoom that point and shoots have. When on vacation, I'd have to say 50% of my pictures involve the use of the zoom lens. Actual cameras are still relevant in today's cellphone centric world (at least for the time being).The REAL reason I upgraded this go around (my 330 is in excellent working condition) was that Canon FINALLY made MP4 the format for the 360's videos. Although previous versions took wonderful HD videos, you have no idea how frustrating it is to transfer a video to your phone, and having to convert it from MOV format first! Converting formats always involves a loss of quality, and I never understood why an Apple format had to be standard on a non-Apple device. MOV is an age old format and MP4 beats it hands down, and is playable on almost any PC or Android device.Nit-picking... this model has a flimsier battery/card door, and using the Wi-Fi feature I had to use "manual" steps to do so, as the "auto" feature would recognize the device, but not connect.... not a big thing, but would be nice if it would connect to devices as easily as cellphones do these days.Over all, I'm quite happy with the camera, and feel the ELPH series offer the best pictures and smallest size in the compact point and shoot category. If it didn't....I wouldn't be on my third model of the line. My first ELPH (110HS) is still working wonderfully 5 yrs later, the only reason I upgrade is for the improved features . I can't recommend this camera highly enough...it's GREAT.A piece of good advice is when buying a case...look for a hard/semi hard "clamshell" type case. My ELPHs look and act pristine after years of use, because they are well protected when being carried or not in use. Pouch style cases won't protect your camera from bumps or accidental drops, which I have encountered many times, and have had no ill effects due to the clam shell cases superior protection.Update 4-24-16Just got back from a Vegas trip, where this camera was use extensively. I had nose bleed seats at the T-Mobile Arena Guns n Roses concert. My 1080p cellphone camera could not capture stage action, as the low light filter does not work in zoom mode (all it could capture at full zoom was a blurry mess). Was able to get video with my HS 360 in zoom mode clear enough to actually capture facial expressions....GREAT video, from some of the worst seats in a 40,000 seat arena. How can you beat that from an ultra compact point and shoot? When filming in full HD, I was getting about 45 mins a battery (I took 2 extra). Low light ability is A LOT better than my Note 4's camera. In DAYLIGHT....my cellphone takes excellent pictures and video....at NIGHT....not so much. Glad I had this camera with me.If you are taking pictures, expect to get 300+ to a battery charge....video, around 45-60 mins. Extra batteries are cheap and quite fast to change out when filming extensively....well worth the money. 5Awesome little camera I purchased this Canon Powershot ELPH 360 HS as a gift for my mom who is 76 years old. This is her first digital camera and she is very pleased with it. It's really small and compact, yet has a 3 inch screen which is large enough for her to see with her poor eyesight. It's made really well and the photo's I took with it to test it look very nice. I looked around at various stores and websites and read many reviews and this was the best camera for the price and got the best reviews from camera testing websites. If you're in the market for a small camera that can fit in your shirt pocket that takes great pictures, this is the camera for you. 5Totally undependable I bought this camera to use on a month long trip to Africa. Almost immediately after starting our trip, the lens quit opening up. It was totally unreliable. Sometimes it would open, but most of the time, it only partially slid open. Luckily I had carried a back up camera as this one was totally undependable. I would turn it on to snap a picture & it would show me a partial picture. When it did work, the pictures were sharp & the zoom was great, but couldn't use it as you never knew when it would work. Very very very disappointing. 1Canon is good stuff, but I wonder if their value engineering is going too far... Like the previous Elph I had, this thing takes stunning photos for a point-and-shoot. Walking around Disney World and seeing people using their phones makes me laugh because they obviously have no idea that megapixels doesn't mean jack when the only zoom you can do is digital. Optical zoom is the only way to go, and this camera has a great optical zoom range given it's size. This thing fits right in my pocket. I can pull this out and power it up as quickly or quicker than I can whip out a cell phone, unlock it, and get to the camera app. I love my digital SLR (Also a Canon) but this can't be beat when you don't want to schlep a big camera around. My SLR is great for instant photos so it's easy go grab shots of fast moving scenes. Cell phone cameras are WAY too slow for this. This particular camera is somewhere in the middle. It's not as fast to take the shot after hitting the button than an SLR, but it's way faster than a cell phone. So I'd call that a win.My previous Elph was made of metal. This is plastic. Granted this camera cost me less than the last Elph I had, but I'd have paid more for metal. Also this camera is physically larger than the previous one. The screen is bigger, which is probably the reason why, but I wasn't complaining about the screen size previously. 4Windows 10 Issue Camera functionality is fine. What is not fine is that it cannot connect to my PC via Wi-fi. I tried everything. I found looking online that many others who are using Windows 10 have the same issue. I finally called Canon customer support and after running through a long and complicated series of steps to resolve the issue (it was obvious that the tech had dealt with the issue before and was likely following a script written for it) I was told that it was a problem with my security software. I've heard that one before. If you run Windows 10 you may have the same problem. Good luck. 1Camera broke within 3 months of purchase (and no return capability) I purchased this camera in March and it stopped working on vacation abroad :-( in June (2018). When it worked, I loved it. Plus it was easy to carry. The camera lense is frozen open and the picture won't show in the viewer. I tried recharging the battery, just in case this was the issue, but it wasn't the problem. I saw reviews that this product failed to work after only a short time (3-6 months or less), but ignored them. I'm hoping to get my money back and will report back on the service I receive.****After talking with Amazon Services, Inc. (who I ordered from) they told me that "As the item's return window has been expired and the leadership department has mentioned to contact the manufacturer; please do contact them, they would be able to assist you with this..." I have no idea how to chat with Canon... Very disappointed in the outcome and I'm out $200. 1Lens error after one week I have had 3 previous Canon PowerShot models and never had any issues. After one week of use of this ELPH 360, the lens doesn't fully open anymore. I didn't notice at first, as the lens still opened when I hit the on button. Then, I noticed that my pictures were slightly dark in the corner, due to the lens cover blocking part of the opening. You can still manually pry the lens cover open to get a clear picture, but obviously that's not ideal.Another issue is that there are 3 setting buttons on the top of the camera and it is very easy to accidentally toggle the switch. I kept the camera in a soft case in my pocket and many times the switch moved. Other than the regular camera setting, the other 2 settings are terrible--- one takes multiple (A LOT) of photos and the other turns your photos into a short video. Both settings take up a lot of memory so if you didn't notice the setting changed, you'll be out of space in no time.Also, setting up & using wifi was difficult. There were many steps to set up the wifi, the upload was slow (not due to Internet speed), and the camera was "thinking" for a long time after hitting the wifi button. I tried to utilize this feature but in the long run would not have relied on this function. 1Impressive Long-Distance Camera - If you don't want to see what you are shooting in the sunlight So I have only used this camera a bit but thought I would put up a first impression post now, and I will update it in a month or so. I am not a professional photographer but my main camera is a Cannon EOS Rebel T3 Canon EOS Rebel T3 Digital SLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens (discontinued by manufacturer). I also have not fully read the instruction booklet yet either.Pros:--------------1) Small & Light Weight: One of my co-workers tossed the box holding the camera to me and didn t think there was a camera inside of it.2) Great Distance view: I will get a series of photographs I took during my lunch break from our back door. We are 0.7 miles from the cranes in the picture. I was able to get a good enough distance picture to read the manufacturers. I am not sure if I can do that on my Rebel T3 with just the normal lens.3) Filter Settings: I have not gone through all the settings yet. However, there is a setting where the camera will take 3+ pictures and change the filter automatically. I just took a picture of the texture on the ceiling to test this and it was pretty neat.Cons:------------------1) The first thing I noticed while taking pictures outside is that it is hard to see what you are shooting in the display screen. I tried taking pictures in the shade and direct sun and in both instances I really had to struggle to see.2) Close up images: I tried using this vs the camera in my Samsung Galaxy S4 phone to take pictures of my Beta Fish tank at work. I found that out of 8 attempted shots only 2 came out non-blurry while using the cannon. I have purchased the same SD card that I would use for my Rebel T3 so that should not cause the delay .Overall so far I am happy. I am marking it at 4 for now but mattering how things change once I read the directions it might be lowered. If I am spending $200 on a camera I want it to work outside. I wanted this camera to ride in my purse on the go since I don t always want to carry the bulky DSLR. SanDisk Extreme PRO 32GB UHS-I/U3 SDHC Flash Memory Card with up to 95MB/s- SDSDXPA-032G-AFFP 4Fair image quality, slow auto-focus, poor image stabilization, no wi-fi, weak battery, screen hard to see outdoors I have owned several Canon point-and-shoot cameras over a period of many years and have always been impressed with their reliability, ease of use and photo quality. I purchased this one for a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Alaska because of its wi-fi photo-transfer capabilities and its 12x telephoto lens. Unfortunately, my photos from the Alaska trip were among the poorest quality I have taken in decades, and the wi-fi did not function.Photo quality. The photos on this camera are not crisp and clear, and low-light photos are not impressive. The quality of the photos taken on my iPhone 7 is generally better than those from this Canon (though of course the iPhone 7 does not have a telephoto lens). I have a several-years-old Konica-Minolta camera whose image stabilization is rock-solid, unlike this Canon.Ease of use. I was unable to get this camera s wi-fi to work with my Mac and my wi-fi. Access to and use of internal settings was slow and complicated. The viewing screen is difficult to see outdoors when viewed directly and almost impossible to see at an angle when outdoors. This viewing difficulty cost me a lot of good outdoor photos because I could not frame them properly.Reliability. I missed quite a few wildlife photo opportunities because of the camera s tendency to be slow or inaccurate in focusing. The image stabilization appeared not to work consistently or well. Battery life was lower than on my previous Canon cameras even when taking non-flash pictures.Bottom line: The 12x zoom is good for some wildlife photos and other long-range shots, but this does not make up for the camera s other shortcomings, leading me to return the camera.. 2Great little pocket camera. Great little pocket camera. I own a Nikon DSLR. I own Sony mirrorless DSLR. And I own an iPhone 6. So why buy this pocket camera? I wanted something for backpacking. That pretty much excludes both DLSR's. Too heavy, too bulky, and too expensive to risk climbing mountains and slogging through bogs, crossing streams, or in sudden rain storms.What about the iPhone? It's OK for shots maybe 5 to 20 feet away but, a lot of the shots you want to take while backpacking are going to be very long distance and the iPhone has no zoom. Also while these little point and shoot cameras with small sensors can't do low light like a larger DSLR sensor, they are worlds better than the tiny sensors in a phone.This camera in contrast to options like a DLSR or iPhone.....1.) Is very small and comfortable to carry in a cargo pocket.2.) Is very light which is a huge consideration when backpacking.3.) Is very quick to deploy because it's handy in a pocket rather than in my backpack. You don't miss shots.4.) Speed is very good. It boots up fast. And the zoom is responsive.5.) Focusing is good.6.) The 12X zoom is a very usable range and the lens is decent.7.) The optical image stabilization is very effective for both still and video photography. Important with a camera this small.8.) The 3 inch display is very usable.9.) Letting sensors and software control exposure, aperture, shutter speed, and ISO make the controls simple and fast to use. Important in a camera this small when speed matters. Fumbling through menus when a bear crosses the trail may mean you miss the shot. Wildlife is notoriously uncooperative with photography. It's almost like they don't care.10.) WiFi is easy to use and fast. It works great to transfer a few photos to an iPhone so you can share with friends. It's also great when taking selfies if I'm out on the trail solo and there's not another person for miles. Just put the camera on a mini tripod, fire up the Canon Camera Connect app on my iPhone and frame the shot using the display on my phone then hit the shutter button when I'm ready. I've only tried it to about 20 feet but it gets me shots I couldn't get otherwise. Not sure what the maximum range is.11.) Eco mode boosts battery life from 180 to 250 shots. Important when you're in the wilderness for a week.The shortcomings of a pocket camera.....1.) The sensor and lens are just not going to compete with a DSLR. Not in light gathering. Not in distortion.2.) This is not a ruggedized camera. It is susceptible to water damage from rain or taking a dunk in a river. My cheap solution was a plastic Ziploc sandwich bag and a little felt lined pouch. So far, not one scratch.3.) The flash does more harm than good 99% of the time. I keep it toggled off and only turn it on when I want it for a specific shot.4.) The small size is a double edged sword. I'm a fairly big guy so, the miniaturization and light weight comes at the expense of controls that are right at the bleeding edge of what I can tolerate for ergonomics. A woman or anyone with smaller hands would no doubt find the tiny controls easier to live with. But, I have to say that Canon did a great job with the design decisions for the physical controls as well as the software on this credit card sized camera. It's just that there's only so much you can do at this size. Grabbing an SLR is just more comfy.All in all, I'm very happy with this Canon product. It is very well designed for what it is and I'll probably carry this on vacations even when backpacking is not involved. For instance, going out to dinner I don't want to lug a 3 lb SLR. I also wouldn't leave an SLR in a bag on a beach in a tourist trap. Ya can't ride a roller coaster with an SLR, etc. etc. etc.To get significantly more than this model, you'd have to step up to the $400 price range or roughly double the cost for a Canon, Sony, or Nikon point and shoot. What you get for that money with say, the Canon SX730 HS is exactly the same 1/2.3" backlit CMOS 20 megapixel sensor. You get upgraded image processing hardware and software, DIGIC 6 vs DIGIC 4+ in this camera. You get the same size view finder at 3" but with 922,000 pixels rather than the 461,000 pixels of this camera. Not sure the additional pixel density nets you much in a 3" screen. The screen also flips up for selfies but that's not a feature I'd ever use. Especially when Canon gives you the Camera Connect App that turns your phone into a remote control with a screen to frame a shot, a much better solution.You get a 40X optical zoom for $400 rather than the 12X range of this Elph 360. But that sort of extreme zoom can be a mixed blessing. It becomes very susceptible to shake at 40X as well as distortion. And if you really need a longer range, the Elph 360 has a 4X digital zoom. Considering it also has a 20 megapixel sensor which I consider a bit ridiculous, digital zoom actually becomes useful. If you're at the 12X optical zoom limit and you use digital zoom to double it to 24X, you still have a 10 megapixel image. Double it again to 48X and you still have a 5 megapixel image. That's good enough for an 8X10 print or tablet / computer viewing. I've included photos of a shed and a hydrangea at 4 different zooms. 1.) No zoom. 2.) 12X optical. 3.) 24X using digital zoom. 4.) 48X using digital zoom. As you can see, the digital zoom is usable if not exactly optimal.The lens on the SX730 HS is very slightly faster at F 3.3 vs F 3.6. You get full manual controls which is more usable with the larger size body. And finally, the weight doubles from 5 oz to 10 oz and the size more than doubles to 17 cu in from 8 cu in. The additional size may actually be the biggest reason for me to upgrade. It may be more comfortable to use.Is the upgrade in specs of a SX730 HS worth doubling the price to $400 and more weight / size? It wasn't for me. I think the Elph 360 HS hits the sweet spot for a compact camera of usability, performance, size, and price. I have much better cameras if I want to use them. This is a quick grab-n-go camera for those times when you can't or don't want to lug around a better camera. And it's plenty good enough for me. The increased price doesn't add enough value to justify itself for me.Highly recommended!!! 5

I am not a professional photographer but my main camera is a Cannon EOS Rebel T3 Canon EOS Rebel T3 Digital SLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens (discontinued by manufacturer). I also have not fully read the instruction booklet yet either.Pros:--------------1) Small & Light Weight: One of my co-workers tossed the box holding the camera to me and didn t think there was a camera inside of it.2) Great Distance view: I will get a series of photographs I took during my lunch break from our back door. We are 0.7 miles from the cranes in the picture. I was able to get a good enough distance picture to read the manufacturers. I am not sure if I can do that on my Rebel T3 with just the normal lens.3) Filter Settings: I have not gone through all the settings yet. However, there is a setting where the camera will take 3+ pictures and change the filter automatically. I just took a picture of the texture on the ceiling to test this and it was pretty neat.Cons:------------------1) The first thing I noticed while taking pictures outside is that it is hard to see what you are shooting in the display screen. I tried taking pictures in the shade and direct sun and in both instances I really had to struggle to see.2) Close up images: I tried using this vs the camera in my Samsung Galaxy S4 phone to take pictures of my Beta Fish tank at work. I found that out of 8 attempted shots only 2 came out non-blurry while using the cannon. I have purchased the same SD card that I would use for my Rebel T3 so that should not cause the delay .Overall so far I am happy. I am marking it at 4 for now but mattering how things change once I read the directions it might be lowered. If I am spending $200 on a camera I want it to work outside. I wanted this camera to ride in my purse on the go since I don t always want to carry the bulky DSLR. SanDisk Extreme PRO 32GB UHS-I/U3 SDHC Flash Memory Card with up to 95MB/s- SDSDXPA-032G-AFFP 4Fair image quality, slow auto-focus, poor image stabilization, no wi-fi, weak battery, screen hard to see outdoors I have owned several Canon point-and-shoot cameras over a period of many years and have always been impressed with their reliability, ease of use and photo quality. I purchased this one for a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Alaska because of its wi-fi photo-transfer capabilities and its 12x telephoto lens. Unfortunately, my photos from the Alaska trip were among the poorest quality I have taken in decades, and the wi-fi did not function.Photo quality. The photos on this camera are not crisp and clear, and low-light photos are not impressive. The quality of the photos taken on my iPhone 7 is generally better than those from this Canon (though of course the iPhone 7 does not have a telephoto lens). I have a several-years-old Konica-Minolta camera whose image stabilization is rock-solid, unlike this Canon.Ease of use. I was unable to get this camera s wi-fi to work with my Mac and my wi-fi. Access to and use of internal settings was slow and complicated. The viewing screen is difficult to see outdoors when viewed directly and almost impossible to see at an angle when outdoors. This viewing difficulty cost me a lot of good outdoor photos because I could not frame them properly.Reliability. I missed quite a few wildlife photo opportunities because of the camera s tendency to be slow or inaccurate in focusing. The image stabilization appeared not to work consistently or well. Battery life was lower than on my previous Canon cameras even when taking non-flash pictures.Bottom line: The 12x zoom is good for some wildlife photos and other long-range shots, but this does not make up for the camera s other shortcomings, leading me to return the camera.. 2Great little pocket camera. Great little pocket camera. I own a Nikon DSLR. I own Sony mirrorless DSLR. And I own an iPhone 6. So why buy this pocket camera? I wanted something for backpacking. That pretty much excludes both DLSR's. Too heavy, too bulky, and too expensive to risk climbing mountains and slogging through bogs, crossing streams, or in sudden rain storms.What about the iPhone? It's OK for shots maybe 5 to 20 feet away but, a lot of the shots you want to take while backpacking are going to be very long distance and the iPhone has no zoom. Also while these little point and shoot cameras with small sensors can't do low light like a larger DSLR sensor, they are worlds better than the tiny sensors in a phone.This camera in contrast to options like a DLSR or iPhone.....1.) Is very small and comfortable to carry in a cargo pocket.2.) Is very light which is a huge consideration when backpacking.3.) Is very quick to deploy because it's handy in a pocket rather than in my backpack. You don't miss shots.4.) Speed is very good. It boots up fast. And the zoom is responsive.5.) Focusing is good.6.) The 12X zoom is a very usable range and the lens is decent.7.) The optical image stabilization is very effective for both still and video photography. Important with a camera this small.8.) The 3 inch display is very usable.9.) Letting sensors and software control exposure, aperture, shutter speed, and ISO make the controls simple and fast to use. Important in a camera this small when speed matters. Fumbling through menus when a bear crosses the trail may mean you miss the shot. Wildlife is notoriously uncooperative with photography. It's almost like they don't care.10.) WiFi is easy to use and fast. It works great to transfer a few photos to an iPhone so you can share with friends. It's also great when taking selfies if I'm out on the trail solo and there's not another person for miles. Just put the camera on a mini tripod, fire up the Canon Camera Connect app on my iPhone and frame the shot using the display on my phone then hit the shutter button when I'm ready. I've only tried it to about 20 feet but it gets me shots I couldn't get otherwise. Not sure what the maximum range is.11.) Eco mode boosts battery life from 180 to 250 shots. Important when you're in the wilderness for a week.The shortcomings of a pocket camera.....1.) The sensor and lens are just not going to compete with a DSLR. Not in light gathering. Not in distortion.2.) This is not a ruggedized camera. It is susceptible to water damage from rain or taking a dunk in a river. My cheap solution was a plastic Ziploc sandwich bag and a little felt lined pouch. So far, not one scratch.3.) The flash does more harm than good 99% of the time. I keep it toggled off and only turn it on when I want it for a specific shot.4.) The small size is a double edged sword. I'm a fairly big guy so, the miniaturization and light weight comes at the expense of controls that are right at the bleeding edge of what I can tolerate for ergonomics. A woman or anyone with smaller hands would no doubt find the tiny controls easier to live with. But, I have to say that Canon did a great job with the design decisions for the physical controls as well as the software on this credit card sized camera. It's just that there's only so much you can do at this size. Grabbing an SLR is just more comfy.All in all, I'm very happy with this Canon product. It is very well designed for what it is and I'll probably carry this on vacations even when backpacking is not involved. For instance, going out to dinner I don't want to lug a 3 lb SLR. I also wouldn't leave an SLR in a bag on a beach in a tourist trap. Ya can't ride a roller coaster with an SLR, etc. etc. etc.To get significantly more than this model, you'd have to step up to the $400 price range or roughly double the cost for a Canon, Sony, or Nikon point and shoot. What you get for that money with say, the Canon SX730 HS is exactly the same 1/2.3" backlit CMOS 20 megapixel sensor. You get upgraded image processing hardware and software, DIGIC 6 vs DIGIC 4+ in this camera. You get the same size view finder at 3" but with 922,000 pixels rather than the 461,000 pixels of this camera. Not sure the additional pixel density nets you much in a 3" screen. The screen also flips up for selfies but that's not a feature I'd ever use. Especially when Canon gives you the Camera Connect App that turns your phone into a remote control with a screen to frame a shot, a much better solution.You get a 40X optical zoom for $400 rather than the 12X range of this Elph 360. But that sort of extreme zoom can be a mixed blessing. It becomes very susceptible to shake at 40X as well as distortion. And if you really need a longer range, the Elph 360 has a 4X digital zoom. Considering it also has a 20 megapixel sensor which I consider a bit ridiculous, digital zoom actually becomes useful. If you're at the 12X optical zoom limit and you use digital zoom to double it to 24X, you still have a 10 megapixel image. Double it again to 48X and you still have a 5 megapixel image. That's good enough for an 8X10 print or tablet / computer viewing. I've included photos of a shed and a hydrangea at 4 different zooms. 1.) No zoom. 2.) 12X optical. 3.) 24X using digital zoom. 4.) 48X using digital zoom. As you can see, the digital zoom is usable if not exactly optimal.The lens on the SX730 HS is very slightly faster at F 3.3 vs F 3.6. You get full manual controls which is more usable with the larger size body. And finally, the weight doubles from 5 oz to 10 oz and the size more than doubles to 17 cu in from 8 cu in. The additional size may actually be the biggest reason for me to upgrade. It may be more comfortable to use.Is the upgrade in specs of a SX730 HS worth doubling the price to $400 and more weight / size? It wasn't for me. I think the Elph 360 HS hits the sweet spot for a compact camera of usability, performance, size, and price. I have much better cameras if I want to use them. This is a quick grab-n-go camera for those times when you can't or don't want to lug around a better camera. And it's plenty good enough for me. The increased price doesn't add enough value to justify itself for me.Highly recommended!!! 5
