You'll love the flexibility it gives you when shooting with an amazing range of 25?300mm (35mm equivalent) in a slim, compact camera. The Wide-Angle lens captures expansive image in every shot, adding depth, perspective and grandeur. Landscapes, city scenes, family shots and more all benefit from the extra width.

Built-In Wi-Fi® makes sharing quick and easy
The PowerShot ELPH 340 HS camera is equipped with built-in Wi-Fi® technology so you can easily share your creative photos and video with friends and family. The camera can connect directly to both iOS® and Android™ devices*, and upload images via the free Canon CameraWindow app** without a computer.

You can share your images with everyone or to selected groups, and even add comments. The built-in Wi-Fi® technology allows you to transfer images to other Wi-Fi® equipped PowerShot cameras or print your photos directly to a PictBridge (Wireless LAN) certified printer. You can also use your smartphone or tablet* to remotely control the camera with Remote Shooting**. Your device will show a live image of the camera's capture - perfect for a commemorative group photo, wildlife shots and all kinds of situations.

Built-In NFC (Near Field Communication)
The PowerShot ELPH 340 HS camera supports NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, eliminating the need to find and open the Canon CameraWindow app* on your mobile device.

Creative Shot Mode
The PowerShot ELPH 340 HS also turns out impressive artistic photos with Creative Shot mode. Creative Shot mode takes advantage of advanced Canon technologies to analyze the individual scene, subject and exposure to apply any of 46 filter options. In addition to the original shot, the camera automatically produces and saves five additional variations of the composition. Filter choices are grouped into Retro, Monochrome, Special and Natural categories or simply select Auto to access the full range of effects.
