Canon IXUS 265 review

 

12x optical zoom, Wi-Fi and creative modes in a cute, compact package

12x optical zoom ; Wi-Fi ; Very good image quality ; Sleek, stylish body ; Available in a range of colours

Lack of touchscreen ; Inability to set autofocus point ; Dearth of manual controls

Smart, stylish and sleek – a 12x optical zoom and Wi-Fi make this pocket friendly compact camera ideal for every day users.

Canon PowerShot Elph 340 HS Review

 

Cameras like the ELPH 340 are a reason why smartphones are winning the compact point-and-shoot war – there just aren't enough cool features.

Canon PowerShot Elph 340 HS

 

The Canon PowerShot Elph 340 HS pocket camera packs a long zoom into a slim body, but image quality drops off a cliff in low light.

Sharp 12x zoom lens. Speedy focus. Creative Shot mode. Wi-Fi with NFC. Compact.

Very noisy images. Slow continuous shooting rate. Narrow aperture when zoomed.

The Canon CameraWindow app (free via the iTunes App Store and Google Play) also supports remote control. A Live View feed streams to your phone or tablet, and you can zoom the lens, adjust the flash, and set the self-timer. The feed was quite smooth,...

Canon ELPH 340 IXUS 265 review

 

The Canon IXUS 265 HS is a 16 Megapixel compact with a 12x optical zoom. In North America it's called the ELPH 340 HS, so from now on I'll refer to it as the IXUS 265 HS / ELPH 340 HS. Strictly terms of naming, the IXUS 265 HS / ELPH 340HS is an update...

12x stabilised optical zoom ; Creative shot & Hybrid auto modes ; 1080p30 full HD video ; Wifi with NFC

Limited Creative effect filters ; No touch screen

The IXUS 265HS / ELPH 340 HS is now the flagship model in Canon's budget compact range. It's the only one with a CMOS sensor, the only one to shoot full 1080p HD video, the only one with Wifi and it packs a very capable 12x stabilised optical zoom into...

Expert review by : cameras.reviewed.com (reviewed.com)

A new point and shoot for a new year is all looks.

 

It's probably a bit unfair to set the bar very high for a point-and-shoot camera under $200, but with smartphones more than good enough for most people, treading water is a recipe for disaster. Though its marks are adequate for the price today, how...
