5.0 out of 5 stars Best Point & Shoot camera on the market with CMOS sensor., 9 May 2011
This review is from: Canon IXUS 310 HS Digital Camera - Silver (12.1MP, 4.4x Optical Zoom) 3.2 inch Touchscreen LCD (Electronics)
FORGET THE CANON S95, OR G11, G12, ETC. "THIS 310HS" is Canon's Best feature packed CMOS Censor (Point and Shoot) camera that can truly take Pics in low light without Noise, Grain, or Speckles even when enlarged.

I was going to BUY the 220 HS then decided on this 310 HS, for a few extra quid. And Glad I did, it gets excellent reviews all over the internet, and read a really good one on Facebook by an owner.

All I can say its the NEXT BEST THING to a "pocketable DSLR Camera" if you could make one?. as the optics are stellar... and up to par with the "G11 and G12" for outdoor Photo's. But where this camera excels, is "indoors in lowlight situations".

Its got an F2.0 F-Stop, Aperture, so the lens opens really wide, very wide indeed to let in as much light you will find in a point and shooter... 'So no need for a flash in low light conditions (ie.) an indoor room with low lighting' perfect' for the IXUS 310 HS. At least as good as the Canon S95, but without the price tag.

At the moment Amazon have the best price with a rock solid no quibble money back guarantee, something you will find hard to locate anywhere else, I've been with Amazon 6 years, and I would NOT shop anywhere else, together with NEXT day delivery, which is essential.

Please give this camera serious consideration if you are in the marketplace for a new easy to use point and shoot camera, just turn to auto, and the on board CPU Processor does all the thinking for you, and you usually end up with superb, clean, sharp snaps, 10/10.

In closing because of the (NEW Cannon "CMOS Sensor") its a lot easier on battery life than typical CCD, its also much faster, (Very Quick compared with CCD), and off course much better in low light situations just like the type you find on DSLR cameras, 'only a little smaller CMOS Sensor', & the 3.2inch touch-screen at the rear is a welcome feature).

Its up to you to make you your own mind, but I can promise you will not be left disappointed with the results - from this sturdy little camera.!

If you have NOT quite the DOSH for this model then you can easily BUY the other sibbling in the range which still takes superb pictures.... see Amazon Link Below:

Canon IXUS 115 HS Digital Camera - Silver (12.1MP, 4x Optical Zoom) 3.0 inch LCD

Has the same: (NEW CANON CMOS SENSOR) as the 310 HS.

well worth a look at around ONLY £150 (I was very nearly going for this or the HS 220)... BUT the newer model won me over by a mere fraction, all models are similar in spec) apart from the HS 310 having the "best point and shoot LENS on the market today" F2.0, on par with the S95, or even some "Lumix models with LEICA Summicron Lens". ie "LX5" for example costing much more.... OK the "LX5 taking the prize buy a whisker", however, only just, - but costing around £350 at time of posting this comment...

so if its value for money & quality pics the 115HS, 220HS OR 310HS are a must.... IN MY HUMBLE OPINION - that's if your working on a rather tight budget, but not too tight...!
