The PowerShot ELPH 330 HS employs a Canon 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor, which delivers state-of-the-art imaging performance and is optimized for use in compact cameras. Utilizing a sophisticated light-capturing design, it provides high sensitivity for improved high ISO capture with reduced noise. It is also a high-speed design, capable of rapidly capturing and moving image data to the processor, enabling faster continuous shooting and faster autofocus.
Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor
The latest-generation Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor works with the PowerShot ELPH 330 HS's image sensor to bring phenomenal increases in processing speed and power, delivering incredible detail in more situations, without the need for artificial light sources. Improved noise reduction produces clearer images when shooting in low light at high ISO speeds. The faster processing speed results in faster continuous shooting capability while maintaining full image quality. With the power of the DIGIC 5 Image Processor, the PowerShot ELPH 330 HS can achieve higher ISO sensitivity and even perform advanced functions like lens correction, special scene modes and much more.
Canon HS SYSTEM for exceptional low-light performance up to ISO 6400
The PowerShot ELPH 330 HS gives you the power to create images with spectacular depth, detail and emotional resonance. The 12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor works in concert with the DIGIC 5 Image Processor to create the renowned Canon HS SYSTEM. With the Canon HS SYSTEM, you'll experience excellent tracking performance even in low light, and achieve gorgeous still image quality even at high ISO speeds all the way up to ISO 6400; beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you use higher shutter speeds to capture clearer images with reduced noise and blur in a variety of situations for incredible photos and even when shooting video.
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?
