Features

Built-in Wi-Fi®
The PowerShot ELPH 320 HS features built-in Wi-Fi® wireless technology making captured images and HD videos available easily for effortless sharing to friends and family. Compatible with Wi-Fi® (802.11 b/g/n wireless standard), this camera can connect with compatible home networks or to wireless access points. You can easily share your images and videos by signing up on CANON iMAGE GATEWAY*-an online service that lets you store images to an online album, and share your images on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Upload images virtually anywhere, via your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch® mobile devices by installing the free Canon CameraWindow†app (The Android app is under development† ). This app makes it easy to select and save images stored on your iOS device‡and upload them to social networking sites, or email. Even without a mobile device, it is possible to send images to a PC, or even transfer images between Wi-Fi® enabled PowerShot cameras.

Canon HS SYSTEM
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 5 Image Processor, which actively reduces noise with high-speed image processing.

Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor
The latest-generation Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor brings phenomenal increases in processing speed and power. Enhancements include improved chip architecture and algorithms, improved noise reduction and enhanced i-Contrast performance. The faster processing speed also results in faster continuous shooting capability. The DIGIC 5 Image Processor also makes possible a new, highly advanced automatic white balance system.

Canon Full HD Video Advantage
In addition to the Canon HS SYSTEM, the combination of the advanced CMOS sensor and DIGIC 5 Image Processor in the PowerShot ELPH 320 HS makes it possible to shoot crisp, clear high definition video. In addition to being able to shoot Full HD 1080p video at 24††frames per second, the PowerShot ELPH 320 HS can also shoot 720p HD video at 30‡‡frames per second.

Beautifully and Astonishingly Thin
At 0.82 inches, the PowerShot ELPH 320 HS is an incredibly slim camera with a 24mm Wide-Angle lens, 5x Optical Zoom, and Optical Image Stabilizer.

5x Optical Zoom with 24mm Wide-Angle Lens
The PowerShot ELPH 320 HS features a powerful Genuine Canon 5x Zoom Lens that delivers outstanding optical performance and versatility. The zoom starts at 24mm wide-angle and extends to 120mm telephoto (35mm equivalent), covering an exceptionally wide range.

Touch Panel LCD with Touch Shutter
The PowerShot ELPH 320 HS features touch panel technology that makes using the camera more intuitive and fun. Simply touch the screen to choose and track an AF point, change camera settings, record and play videos and much, much more!

Smart AUTO
Smart AUTO for the PowerShot ELPH 320 HS has been significantly expanded, making it easier than ever to capture the sharp, bright, colorful images - and videos - you're looking for. By assessing various factors in both the background and the subject, the system recognizes 58 predefined shooting situations.

Face ID
Simply take a picture of up to 12 faces you would like the camera to register, then enter names and ages. Once a person is registered, the camera will pick him or her out of a group and adjust focus and exposure to his or her face, even recognizing faces in profile.
