A smart camera built for your lifestyle, the Canon PowerShot ELPH 320 HS (aka Canon Powershot IXUS 240 HS outside the USA) was made to capture excellent images, with modern convenience. With its 16.1 megapixels along with the Canon HS System, this allows you to take bright, clear photos even in low lights. The 3.2″ touchscreen responds to your touch for a more convenient interactive shooting.
Best of all, the built-in WiFi enables you connect to access points, making uploading and backing-up images more convenient.
Features and Highlights of the Canon 320 HS
- 16MP sensor, Canon HS System
- 3.2 inch touchscreen
- light weight, about 1 lb.
- 24-120mm wide angle zoom
- Wi-Fi connectivity for wireless uploading
I am looking for a very compact wide-angle zoom camera to replace my Fujifilm F300EXR, so I did a quick research on the internet and came up with this short Canon 320 HS review.
What I Like about the Canon 320 HS
Perhaps what I like most with this camera is the easy Wi-Fi photo browsing and downloading once connected. The most annoying and least fun part of taking pictures would be the uploading and sharing since it takes up a lot of time and effort. With the built-in WiFi, this eliminates the most hassle part of connecting to a computer just to upload, making it easier to back-up images.
The ultra-slim built easily fits on your hand. The classy handsome design of this camera is also remarkable, be it in the front or back. This camera was perfectly designed to fit any personality.
What I Dislike about the Canon 320 HS
The only downside to this camera is that the WiFi Connection is not intuitive enough and requires a 58-page manual for the initial set up. The touchscreen is not as I imagined as well. It’s good that it is 3.2″ but the screen is slow to respond and can be frustrating if you have fat fingers. Still with a little patience and practice, it eventually gets easier to manipulate.
Canon 320 HS – Overall Thoughts
The Canon PowerShot ELPH 320 HS is the rival of any smartphone. It does not come cheap but this camera is worth investing, even if you’re not fond of the WiFi features. It delivers clear crisp images and high definition videos that you could play over on a high definition TV which is the most important feature of any point and shoot camera. The Canon 320 HS is definitely a good buy.
