The silver Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS Digital Camera is a compact point-and-shoot camera featuring a 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 image processor for high quality imagery with notable low-light performance. The combination of these two technologies forms the Canon HS SYSTEM, which focuses on rendering clear imagery while reducing the appearance of noise and camera blur in difficult lighting situations. Also benefitting the low-light shooting abilities of the ELPH 330 is Intelligent IS, which automatically chooses from six different shooting modes to optimize image stabilization settings for the type of shooting. The built-in 10x optical zoom lens gives a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-240mm, providing a zoom range suitable for most situations. A high speed autofocus system helps to acquire focus quickly and accurately, which greatly serves a fast continuous shooting rate of 6.2fps for easily capturing moving subjects.
The image sensor and processor also afford the ability to produce full HD videos up to 1080p with stereo sound and full zooming abilities during recording. Images and movies can be viewed on an HDTV via the HDMI connection or can also be viewed on the rear 3.0" LCD monitor, which is also used for image composition and menu navigation. For even more sharing abilities, built-in Wi-Fi connectivity allows you to instantly share imagery directly from your camera to social networking sites, when using Canon iMAGE GATEWAY, or straight to your iOS or Android mobile device for further sharing.
- 12.1MP CMOS Sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor
- A 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor provides high image quality that, when paired with the DIGIC 5 image processor, exhibits notable low-light sensitivity. The sensor and processor collaborate to create Canon's HS System, which is able to produce clear, rich imagery in dimly-lit situations with minimal noise and high detail. The low-light shooting ability is further enhanced with the inclusion of Intelligent IS image stabilization, which applies one of six different settings to best reduce the appearance of camera shake depending on the type of scene in which you are photographing.
- Built-In Wi-Fi Connectivity
- Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity allows for the instant sharing of both still images and videos through social networks or to image-hosting sites using CANON iMAGE GATEWAY. Additionally, you can wirelessly backup your work to a personal computer or share directly with your iOS or Android mobile device for an even greater range of sharing possibilities.
- 10x Optical Zoom Lens
- The 10x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-240mm, giving wide-angle to telephoto coverage to suit most shooting situations.
- Full HD Recording and Movie Digest
Full HD 1920 x 1080p video recording is possible with stereo sound and full zooming capabilities, which is accessible through the use of a dedicated movie record button. For sharing and viewing both movies and still images, an HDMI port is available for outputting your imagery to an HDTV.
Movie Digest mode also makes use of HD video recording, but does so by utilizing Hybrid Auto to aid in producing short, four second video clips to accompany stills. These 720p video clips are optimized through the use of Smart AUTO settings and Intelligent IS, to render them clear and well-exposed to give a more well-rounded depiction of a scene.
- Other Camera Features
- 3.0" LCD monitor is available for image playback, composition, and for menu navigation.
- Continuous shooting rate of 6.2fps is further benefitted by a high speed AF system to ensure consistent image sharpness.
