Hey, I'm Josh Goldman, senior editor with CNET, and this is a look at the Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS. The Canon really change up its ultra compacts for 2011 by putting a high sensitivity 12 megapixel, back side illuminates CMOS sensor in all the new ELPH models. That HS in the name stands for Canon's HS system, that combines the sensor with Canon's digit 4 image processor for delivering improved low light photos and speeder shooting performance. The camera also has a 5x F 27 24 millimeter ultra wide angle lens, and a 2.7 inch LCD. All of that is cramped into an incredibly small, light weight body, and even being this small, it's still very usable for someone with big hands. The buttons on back, despite being flat or easy to press, and the casing has an almost sand papery texture to it for an extra grip. There's no need to enter a movie mode for recording clips in full HD, you just press this button on back and then you get stereo mic's on top tube. It's very easy to use, and really- about- the only thing I don't like is that all the shooting modes, except for full auto, are lumped in the one menu, which honestly, now is more profound for me while testing than it will be for the average user. Photo quality is excellent, first class, with bright accurate colors, and solid low light results. It's also a pretty quick camera with a continuous shooting rate of up to 3.2 frames per second. Movie quality is very good too, and you get used of the optical zoom while recording, which is always nice. Basically, if you're looking for a nice, simple, ultra compact for used indoors and out, this is it. I'm Josh Goldman, and that's the Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS.
