Canon ELPH 190 IS Overview

A pocketable point-and-shoot with versatile zoom lens, the red PowerShot ELPH 190 IS Digital Camera from Canon is a sleek, convenient camera featuring a 20.0MP 1/2.3" CCD sensor and DIGIC 4+ image processor. The sensor and processor combine to afford notable image quality and sensitivity to ISO 1600, as well as the ability to record HD 720p videos at 25 fps. A 10x optical zoom lens permits working with a variety of subjects, ranging from near to far, and an Intelligent IS image stabilization system compensates for the effects of camera shake to produce sharper handheld photos. A 2.7" 230k-dot LCD monitor is available for composing your shots and reviewing imagery, and built-in Wi-Fi with NFC allows for wireless transferring of photos and movies to mobile devices. Rounding out the ELPH 190 IS' feature-set, the camera also sports a Smart AUTO mode for intelligently selecting exposure settings, Scene Modes to creatively affect the look of images, ECO Mode to save on battery life, and a dedicated Help Button for learning more about the specific camera controls.

20.0MP 1/2.3" CCD image sensor pairs with the DIGIC 4+ image processor to realize notable image clarity and sensitivity to ISO 1600 to support working in a variety of conditions. Additionally, the sensor and processor combine to provide a 2.2 fps continuous shooting rate as well as HD 720p video recording at 25 fps.
A versatile 10x optical zoom lens offers a 24-240mm 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 2.7" 230k-dot rear LCD monitor is available for composing imagery, navigating the menu, or reviewing photos and videos.
Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper camera settings based on recognized shooting situations.
A variety of Shooting Modes can be used to optimize the camera's settings based on a specific scene type you are working in, including Low Light, Portrait, and Fireworks modes.
Scene Modes, such as Fisheye Effect, Toy Camera Effect, and Monochrome, help to creatively adjust the look of your photographs in-camera.
ECO Mode intelligently reduces your power consumption, aiding in producing longer battery life for more shooting time.
For quickly familiarizing oneself with the camera, a Help Button provides a convenient explanation of the various camera settings and controls.

How long does the battery last?

How long does the battery last?
Asked by: Michael
I was impressed with the life of a charge on the battery and I was using it for work. I can't give you a time or number of pictured because my use of the camera was not consistent. I always carry a spare battery because when it shows low batter on the battery icon, you are about done shooting. That is why I always carried a spare, charged battery.
