The PowerShot ELPH 330 HS features a powerful Genuine Canon 10x Zoom Lens that delivers outstanding optical performance and versatility. Fitting a high-performance lens with such wide zoom range into a camera so thin would normally be considered an impossible feat, but Canon's expert optical engineering met the challenge, developing a lens that achieves outstanding compactness with high zoom power and superb performance. The zoom starts at 24mm wide-angle and extends to 240mm telephoto (35mm equivalent), covering an exceptionally wide range. The telephoto reach gives you the freedom to capture subjects from a considerable distance, while the 24mm wide-angle makes it easy to shoot sweeping landscapes, large groups of people and tall buildings.
Optical Image Stabilizer
Handheld shooting can often lead to camera shake, making photos and videos blurry. Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer is a sophisticated system that uses lens-shift technology to correct for unwanted camera movement. It makes handheld photography more practical, providing excellent image quality in many difficult shooting situations: outdoors at dusk, inside without a flash, and even at the telephoto end of the zoom range without a tripod. For photos, it enables shooting at slower shutter speeds, accommodating more low-light shooting situations than ever before without having to boost ISO sensitivity. With camera shake and vibration reduced, you get a sharper, steadier image. And because it is an optical system, there is none of the image degradation typical with electronic image stabilizers.
I purchased the Canon ELPH 110 in 2012 and unfortunately dropped it with the lens extended. It gave me beautiful, clear shots, a lot of features and so very tiny and functional like a small point and shoot should be. I replaced it with another brand for less and was not satisfied. I brought the Canon ELPH 330 a few days ago and knew what to expect. After almost 200 shots on Auto every single one came out clear HD. I'm not a professional photographer but I generally know my way around point and shoots. This camera delivers. I especially like the stereo sound, WI FI, zoom on video capture and the ability to adjust all your settings for that one perfect shot. Another plus is true super slow motion. Try to find a camera with all the ELPH's features for the price, you can't. I'm around much in the city and it's just right for what I want to do. It is small as Canon made the first ELPH series and claimed to be and was the smallest point and shoot that fits in your pocket. In very low light it gives decent captures but with flash it performs very well. Daytime, no problem, you will love this camera as I do for the money. I expected much and Canon has delivered again.

Good pocket camera
Good camera for pocket use. Better than a phone , easy to use for general party photos. Low light conditions are questionable. used it for only 1 month but in all types of conditions. Took it on vacation and it performed as I had hoped, however I can only complain about the case. I purchased a "bundle " package which included a hard case which doesn't close! Very annoying on vacation which was highly active, causing me to constantly try closing it for the camera's protection. I read this complaint on another site. Why did Canon include this case?
