Intelligent IS automatically chooses from six different modes to optimize image stabilization for the shooting condition
It's easy to capture clear, steady images with the PowerShot ELPH 330 HS, even in low light without using a tripod. That's because the camera is equipped with Canon's innovative Intelligent IS. The system analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation allowing you to focus on framing and capturing your shot. For stills, the system automatically selects among Normal, Panning, Macro (Hybrid) and Tripod IS modes. When shooting video, the system automatically selects among Dynamic, Powered, Macro and Tripod IS modes.
Normal Corrects for a wide range of camera movement when shooting stills.
Panning Panning motion is detected so that IS does not interfere with desired camera movement.
Macro (Hybrid) Corrects for shift-type camera shake, which typically occurs in macro (close-up) shooting.
Dynamic Effective for video shooting at wide-angle focal lengths, eliminating the unwanted shaking that typically occurs while walking.
Powered Compensates for hand movement when shooting video at the telephoto end of the zoom range, where camera shake is magnified.
Tripod When tripod use is detected, the Image Stabilizer is stopped because it is not needed.
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?
