Canon ELPH 360 HS Overview

Combining high-resolution imaging with a versatile feature-set, the purple PowerShot ELPH 360 HS Digital Camera from Canon is a sleek point-and-shoot featuring a 20.2MP 1/2.3" CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4+ image processor. The sensor and processor combination avails sensitivity to ISO 3200 and notable image quality, as well as 7.2 fps continuous shooting, to suit working in a variety of conditions, and, in addition to stills, also enables full HD 1080p video recording at 30 fps. A 12x optical zoom lens provides a 25-300mm equivalent focal length range and an Intelligent IS image stabilization system helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld imagery. For composing imagery and reviewing your photos and movies, a large 3.0" 461k-dot LCD is featured on the back of the camera and built-in Wi-Fi with NFC allows you to wirelessly share images to a linked smartphone or tablet. Additionally, the ELPH 360 HS also features a range of creative features for compiling videos and stills or producing creative works in-camera, including Hybrid Auto, Creative Shot, and Story Highlights.

A 20.2MP 1/2.3" High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor pairs with the DIGIC 4+ image processor to realize notable image quality and sensitivity to ISO 3200, and also, together, form the Canon HS SYSTEM to maintain low noise results for cleaner image quality. Additionally, the sensor and processor also afford continuous stills shooting rates up to 7.2 fps and full HD 1080p video recording at 30 fps.
A versatile 12x optical zoom lens offers a 25-300mm equivalent focal length range, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives. This broad reach is complemented by a versatile Intelligent IS image stabilization system that minimizes the appearance of camera shake for both stills and video shooting:

Stills:
  • Normal IS corrects for a wide range of common camera movements.
  • Panning IS detects deliberate panning movements and does not compensate for lateral movements to permit desired camera movements.
  • Macro (Hybrid) IS corrects for shift-type camera shake that commonly occurs when working with close-up subject matter.
  • Tripod is a dedicated setting that automatically deactivates IS when the use of a tripod is detected since camera-based stabilization is not needed.


Video:
  • Dynamic IS is well-suited to recording at wide-angle focal lengths and reduces unwanted shaking that typically occurs when walking while recording.
  • Powered IS compensates for hand movements that become more visually discernible when working at the telephoto end of the zoom range.
  • Macro (Hybrid) IS minimizes the appearance of shake when walking as well as compensates for shift-type shake that occurs when working with close-up subject matter.
  • Active Tripod IS minimizes the slight amount of shake that can happen when recording video while using a tripod.
Built-in Wi-Fi with NFC allows you to wirelessly share your photos and movies with a linked smartphone or tablet as well as remotely control the camera from the mobile device by using the Camera Connect app. A dedicated Wi-Fi button is also featured on the camera body to expedite the process of connecting with a smartphone or tablet and sharing imagery between devices.
A large 3.0" 461k-dot LCD monitor is available for composing imagery, navigating the menu, and reviewing photos and videos.
Hybrid Auto records up to four seconds of video prior to taking a still photo, and then automatically combines the two types of imagery into a video recap.
Creative Shot mode utilizes various compositional, color, and lighting elements from an original image in order to produce a new, unique image with artistic flair.
Story Highlights can automatically produce a highlight reel, comprised of videos and photos from a day or an event, and then add music and effects for playback.

This a great camera. I bought it to replace my old Nikon and so far am loving it. I have used it at 2 concerts already and am pleased with the pics. I've also taken several nature photos with good results. The menu can be a little tricky to navigate at first, but am learning quickly. The video is also good quality.

First. The service from BH is and always has been excellent. Camera was a last minute birthday present for my 9 yo daughter. The camera arrived safe and sound several days before I expected. That's always nice Second. The camera is very nice. What I expected and wanted for her first camera. It does a nice job. I like canon, always have. I have the 7D Mark ii from BH and assorted lenses. I alway get my gear here. You can't go wrong.

One thing I've learned over the years is that point and shoot cameras are handy, but they don't last. A Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS70 that I purchased in late 2020 just died so I opted to replace it with the less expensive Canon ELPH 360 HS. Here are my thoughts so far: PROS: Very compact. Easily fits in a pocket. Good image quality in good light. Better than expected quality in low light up to ISO 1600. Allows for some user control in Program mode. 12x zoom yields good results across the entire zoom range. CONS: Very few bells and whistles at that price point (some may find that a positive). Battery life is nothing to write home about In summary, this is a handy camera to have when I don't want to lug around my DSLRs and a bunch of lenses. The ability to optically zoom to 300mm equivalent makes it much more versatile than a cell phone camera.

Best camera I have ever owned!

Small sensor big mp isn't better. I am especially down on the UI. Have to read a on-line manual which is not great. You need to change some of the settings which is hard to do without a manual. It is not easy. In sunny weather it is decent but not great. The quality can be hit or miss.
