The Canon PowerShot ELPH 310 HS Digital Camera is more than a fun point-and-shoot. While it's slim, brightly colored, and easy to use, the ELPH 310 HS is also a versatile companion, allowing you to step outside the basic for unlimited creative potential. And it all starts with the 12.1Mp CMOS sensor for stunning still images and quality 1080p HD videos.

Canon's HS SYSTEM puts those powerful 12.1 megapixels at your disposal with the marriage of the CMOS sensor and the DIGIC 4 Image Processor. The processor not only puts files onto your memory card quickly and efficiently, it also expands the ISO range up to 3200, adjusting to even low-light situations for blur-free images. The sensor, as previously mentioned, helps you capture impressive still or video files.

The ELPH 310 HS employs various features to help you make the most of each situation. For instance, the 8x optical zoom lets you capture far-off subjects without a loss in image quality. Optical image stabilization works to prevent blur and motion. The 3.0" PureColor LCD is a large platform on which to compose and review your images. And of course, the 28-224mm (35mm equivalent) lens gives you a wide range of zooming to shoot it all: group shots, landscapes, buildings, etc.

When it comes to the HD video function of the 310 HS, this camera does more than simply record. Video is recorded at 1920 x 1080p high definition at 24 frames per second, among other various resolutions. A dedicated Movie Button helps you start shooting video faster too, without having to search through menus. Other special features for video capture include a wind filter and optical zoom while shooting for higher-quality recordings. The ELPH 310 HS also features iFrame Movie Support by allowing you to shoot in Apple's iFrame format for compatibility with both Mac and Windows applications.

Ultra-Slim, Elegant Design
At a slim 0.87 inches, the PowerShot ELPH 310 HS digital camera is super-thin, making it a perfect choice for those who desire a small camera that fits easily in a pocket
8x Optical Zoom with 28mm Wide-Angle Lens
Despite its slim profile, the PowerShot ELPH 310 HS houses a powerful Genuine Canon 8x Optical Zoom Lens that delivers outstanding optical performance and versatility. The zoom starts at 28mm wide-angle and extends to 224mm telephoto (35mm equivalent), covering a wide and highly useful range. The telephoto reach gives you the freedom to capture subjects from afar, while the 28mm 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 in more shooting situations, providing excellent image quality in many difficult 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
Canon HS SYSTEM
The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you take bright, clear photos in an even wider range of shooting situations than before. Beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The system is the result of two technologies brought together in PowerShot cameras: a high-sensitivity imaging sensor, which is able to capture more light; and the DIGIC Image Processor, which actively reduces noise with high-speed image processing. The 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor in the PowerShot ELPH 310 HS incorporates advanced light reception technology that enhances sensitivity. The DIGIC 4 Image Processor provides a major boost in noise reduction, expanding the usable ISO range to an amazing high of 3200. The Canon HS SYSTEM takes the frustration out of low-light shooting, delivering clear, blur-free images
Canon DIGIC 4 Image Processor
Canon DIGIC Image Processors have set the standard for functionality and performance since their groundbreaking introduction in 1999. With each successive generation, DIGIC processors have brought elevated performance and powerful new features to PowerShot digital cameras. The DIGIC 4 processor has ushered in a new level of picture quality and accelerated processing, making possible features such as high-speed continuous shooting, Full HD video and Face Detection Self-timer. New, more powerful noise reduction algorithms also provide improved low-light capture
Canon Full HD Video Advantage
In addition to the Canon HS SYSTEM, the combination of the advanced CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 Image Processor in the PowerShot ELPH 310 HS makes it possible to shoot crisp, clear high definition video. Imagine the fun and excitement of being able to shoot spectacular 1080p Full HD video with stereo sound that you can later watch on your HDTV or download to your computer to share with family and friends. In addition to being able to shoot Full HD 1080p video at 24 frames per second, the PowerShot ELPH 310 HS can also shoot 720p HD video at 30 frames per second
Dedicated Movie Button, Wind Filter and Optical Zoom While Shooting
It's never been easier to shoot videos with a PowerShot digital camera. The PowerShot ELPH 310 HS has a dedicated movie button that lets you start and stop recording instantly. There is no need to go through layers of menus or operate switches or dials to switch to and from video recording mode. The camera is always ready to shoot stills or video whenever you want. The PowerShot ELPH 310 HS also incorporates an electronic wind filter, which suppresses wind noise that can muffle or distort the sound. And unlike less sophisticated point-and-shoot cameras, the PowerShot ELPH 310 HS lets you use the full range of optical zoom when you're shooting a video
HDTV Playback via HDMI with CEC Support
It's easy to enjoy and share the videos you shoot with the PowerShot ELPH 310 HS. Simply connect its HDMI terminal to your HDTV using an HDMI cable. And because the PowerShot ELPH 310 HS supports HDMI-CEC technology, you'll be able to control the playback of your images and videos on any CEC-enabled HDTV using the TV's remote control. (CEC - Consumer Electronic Control - is part of the HDMI specification, enabling components in a system to communicate with one another.)
iFrame Movie Support
With the PowerShot ELPH 310 HS, you can also shoot video in the Apple iFrame format, which is a computer-friendly standard that speeds up importing and editing of videos. It keeps file sizes small, making it more convenient to upload or e-mail high-quality videos. The iFrame format enjoys native support in compatible Mac and Windows video applications, making it unnecessary to perform time-consuming and often quality-degrading conversions
High-Speed Burst Mode
Capture amazing action shots like the pros with the PowerShot ELPH 310 HS camera. Using High-Speed Burst mode, you can shoot at exceptionally high speeds - 8.7 frames per second. It's a great feature for those who enjoy taking pictures at sporting events. High-Speed Burst is also an excellent way to make sure you capture that perfect instant in time when shooting any moving subject
Super Slow Motion Movie
The Super Slow Motion Movie mode on the PowerShot ELPH 310 HS gives you a fun and useful option when shooting videos. It records video clips at a very high speed - up to approximately 240 frames per second. When the clips are played at normal speed (30 fps), the action is dramatically slower. This video shooting mode can be used to capture memorable plays at sporting events or to analyze and study motion
Intelligent IS
The latest advance in Canon Optical Image Stabilization technology, Intelligent IS analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation. 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. With Intelligent IS, you can concentrate on image capture, letting the camera make the most effective IS settings to assure the steadiest possible image

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

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

PureColor LCD System
The PowerShot ELPH 310 HS digital camera's large and bright 3.0 inch PureColor LCD screen makes it easy to view and frame your shots in high resolution (461,000 dots). PureColor technology delivers excellent contrast with rich, true-to-life color. Moreover, you can view the LCD screen over a surprisingly wide angle - above, below or to either side - without color shifts and with minimal reflections. A scratch-proof hard coating and a dust-repellent fluorine coating ensure a durable screen that dependably displays clear, vibrant images
Smart AUTO
Photographers of all levels appreciate a camera - especially a go-anywhere compact digital - that takes the hassle out of capturing beautiful images. The PowerShot ELPH 310 HS gives you Smart AUTO - sophisticated Canon technology that makes getting that great shot as simple as pressing the shutter button. Smart AUTO automatically detects scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and the subject. Detected scenes are analyzed using 32 predefined shooting situations. The camera then makes optimal settings to ensure the best possible image capture, whether you're shooting stills or video. Smart AUTO also includes Advanced Subject Detection, which allows the camera to detect and track non-human moving subjects like animals and vehicles. With Smart AUTO, all you have to do is frame your shot and capture away

Movie Digest
Creating a video containing highlights of a family vacation or an important occasion is a lot easier than you might think. When you use Movie Digest on the PowerShot ELPH 310 HS, the camera will automatically record a short video clip (up to approximately 4 seconds) every time you shoot a still image. That entire day's worth of clips will then be automatically combined into a single video. Movie Digest does all the work, so you can sit back and enjoy your video!

How does this work? When you activate Movie Digest, the camera continuously records a "loop" of video up to 4 seconds long into an area of the memory card reserved for this feature. Every time you take a still photo, the video clip residing in memory at that time is appended to a file that will eventually become the day's highlights video. The following day, the camera will start a new video file. Movie Digest does not affect regular video shooting, so you can use it and still switch between still and video capture as desired.

Although the beauty of Movie Digest is the ease with which you can create a video of the day, you can, if you wish, edit the created videos on your computer. Version 6.8 or later of the included ZoomBrowser EX (for Windows) and ImageBrowser (for Mac OS) software lets you freely select and delete unwanted scenes from your Movie Digest videos

Face Detection Technology Including Smart Shutter
Face Detection technology makes it easy for you to take great photos of people. The camera will automatically detect the face(s) in a frame to give it optimal focus, exposure, flash (if needed), and white balance. Smart Shutter adds fun and convenience to Face Detection because you can set the camera to release the shutter when someone winks, smiles or even enters the frame
Special Scene Modes
Special Scene modes have fun and creative filters you can add to your photos without having to use a computer. You can make a quirky portrait using a Fisheye Lens Effect or add a beautiful single-tone effect with Monochrome. Toy Camera Effect simulates a vintage look as if capturing the photo using a "toy" or pinhole camera
Best Image Selection
Best Image Selection is an easy way to get great results almost every time you take a picture. When you press the shutter release, the camera will rapidly shoot a series of five images, then assess the images for any unwanted facial movements and camera shake. Out of the five images, the camera will select and save the best one
