 Canon Powershot ELPH 320 HS, Wi-Fi Today's convenience and lots of fun cram the gracefully engineered ELPH 320 HS. with Wi-FiŽ built-in allows you to share images and striking Full 1080p HD movies any place, while a 3.2-inch PureColor System LCD is responsive to your touch providing an interactive shooting encounter. A 16.1 MP CMOS High-Sensitivity Image Sensor along with a DIGIC 5 Imaging Processor make up the Canon HS SYSTEM, allowing you to acquire outstanding images even in poor light. Simple shots become expressive using the wide-angle 24mm lens with a 5x Optical Zoom. Superb image quality becomes easy with enhance Smart AUTO which optimizes the camera setting using any of 58 predefined shooting conditions while the Intelligent IS ensures bright, stable images for any shooting situation.

The PowerShot ELPH 320 HS uses an array of features in helping you get the most of every scene. For example, there's 5x optical zoom to acquire far-away subjects without losing image quality. There's Intelligent IS which automatically makes a choice from six unique modes for optical image stabilization as a way to diminish blur and motion, serving up the crispest and sharpest pictures possible. A 3.2 inch PureColor Touch LCD Screen comes with Touch Shutter making capturing images as simple as possible. Naturally, the 24-120mm (in 35mm equivalent size) lens has a wide range zoom to capture it all including: buildings., landscapes and group shots.

The Camera feels like the touch screen of a smart phone as you hold n your hand, it's light and sleek. And it has many features that are on many of the smart phones, features such as changing colors and themes, choosing the shutter sound, and turning sound on and off The build quality is an improvement over many other Point & shoot I've had the occasion to use. The touch screen is not nearly as advanced as the Apple iphone touch screen, where all that's needed are finger tips. Although using fingernails works fine!

Just Tap the touch screen with your fingernail and the screen comes to attention. In addition, the camera strap includes a plastic stylus for tapping the screen. However it's not shown in any of the promotional materials.. Although the manual says, "If you have difficulty operating he camera by touch, use the stylus attached to the strap." However you can use fingernail or the included stylus as both work fine.

Being able to use Wi-fi for connecting and sharing images direct on Facebook or emailing is a great feature. We have been freed from cable connections to upload or download files. The monitor is very nice and feels robust. It probably doesn't require a screen protector, although one would provide extra protection. although it may not scratch easily. The only thing not to like like is the manual. It is a little difficult to understand the settings for setting up the Facebook and email accounts. Overall I believe Canon has knocked another one out of the park. Feb 7, 2012.
