Slimline Design, Brilliant Performance
Make a bold, fashion statement with the gracefully sleek PowerShot ELPH 310 HS digital camera. The super slim design makes this camera pocket-friendly, so casual shooters, party-goers and travelers can take pictures and videos of everyday moments wherever they go. Its compact profile doesn't mean you have to compromise on image quality. Powered by the Canon HS SYSTEM, the camera delivers great shots in virtually any situation, even in less than ideal lighting. 12.1 Megapixels ensure images with excellent detail. Zoom into far-away subjects with its 8x Optical Zoom and easily photograph large groups of people with the 28mm wide-angle lens. And when you want to shoot video, you can capture stunning 1080p Full HD video at the touch of a button.


Ultra-Slim, Elegant Design
At a slim 0.87 inches, the PowerShot ELPH 310 HS digital camera is super-thin, making it a perfect choice for those who desire a small camera that fits easily in a pocket. With five cool metallic colors to choose from (Purple, Blue, Pink, Green and Silver), there's a PowerShot ELPH 310 HS that fits your style.

8x Optical Zoom with 28mm Wide-Angle Lens
Despite its slim profile, the PowerShot ELPH 310 HS houses a powerful Genuine Canon 8x Optical Zoom Lens that delivers outstanding optical performance and versatility. The zoom starts at 28mm wide-angle and extends to 224mm telephoto (35mm equivalent), covering a wide and highly useful range. The telephoto reach gives you the freedom to capture subjects from afar, while the 28mm wide-angle makes it easy to shoot sweeping landscapes, large groups of people and tall buildings.

Optical Image Stabilizer
Handheld shooting can often lead to camera shake, making photos and videos blurry. Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer is a sophisticated system that uses lens-shift technology to correct for unwanted camera movement. It makes handheld photography more practical in more shooting situations, providing excellent image quality in many difficult situations: outdoors at dusk, inside without a flash, and even at the telephoto end of the zoom range without a tripod. For photos, it enables shooting at slower shutter speeds, accommodating more low-light shooting situations than ever before without having to boost ISO sensitivity.

The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you take bright, clear photos in an even wider range of shooting situations. Beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The system is the result of two technologies brought together in PowerShot cameras: a high-sensitivity imaging sensor, which is able to capture more light; and the DIGIC Image Processor, which actively reduces noise with high-speed image processing. The 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor in the PowerShot ELPH 310 HS incorporates advanced light reception technology that enhances sensitivity.

Canon Full HD Video Advantage
In addition to the Canon HS SYSTEM, the combination of the advanced CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 Image Processor in the PowerShot ELPH 310 HS makes it possible to shoot crisp, clear high definition video. Imagine the fun and excitement of being able to shoot spectacular 1080p Full HD video with stereo sound that you can later watch on your HDTV or download to your computer to share with family and friends. In addition to being able to shoot Full HD 1080p video at 24* frames per second, the PowerShot ELPH 310 HS can also shoot 720p HD video at 30** frames per second.
