Canon PowerShot ELPH 500 HS / IXUS 310 HS
Great ISO test results, Photographs captured in low light retain good details, Shutter Priority (Tv) and Aperture Priority (Av) modes, Superior f/2.0 optically stabilized wide angle lens.
Excellent photo quality for its class; a nice mix of shooting modes.
Touchscreen, Few buttons, HD recording, HDMI.
Excellent build quality.
Very sharp images. Solid lowlight performance. Attractive design.
Tiny, hard-edged zoom toggle switch, Below average battery life, Noticeable chromatic aberration, especially at wide angle, 24 fps videos a bit jerky, Mics exaggerate wind noise, LCD adjustment buried in menu system, Heavy softening in upper right corner.
Full touchscreen controls leads to couple of extra steps.
Touch interface is potentially frustrating; shooting performance is a little slow.
Touch screen a little insensitive, No physical movie record button, Relatively large and heavy.
Pricey. Occasionally laggy zoom performance.
