Experience an even more intuitive touch panel technology with the PowerShot ELPH 500 HS digital camera. Do almost everything right on the LCD - like choosing an AF point, set exposure settings and record videos - all with the touch of one finger. The PowerShot ELPH 500 HS brings the art of photography at your command. It's packed with great Canon essentials like an f/2.0 lens, the HS SYSTEM, 1080p Full HD video and 24mm Wide-Angle Lens so every moment is captured in pure Canon brilliance.

  • newegg Canon HS System Canon’s HS SYSTEM takes the frustration out of low light shooting, which delivers clear, blur-free shots with all the ambiance intact, and frees you from the sometimes unwanted effects of using the flash. The system is the result of two technologies brought together in a compact PowerShot. The first is the 12.1 Megapixel CMOS Sensor, which positions the light-receiving surface for optimal light reception. The other one is Canon's advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor, which actively reduces noise and delivers high speed image processing.
  • newegg F/2.0, 24mm ultra Wide-Angle 4.4x Optical Zoom lens with OIS and 3.2-inch Touch Panel LCD The PowerShot ELPH 500 HS digital camera sports an f/2.0 aperture, perfect for creating enticing portraits, by drawing attention to the face and blurring the background with its impressively shallow depth-of-field. The large aperture also does more. It lets you capture more nuances in low light shooting by using more of the available light. The 24mm ultra Wide-Angle lens puts more into every frame so you can easily photograph landscapes, tall buildings and large groups of people. In addition, the advancement of touch screen technology with the PowerShot ELPH 500 HS digital camera enables you to choose and track an AF point, change camera settings, record and play videos and much, much more with a touch of one finger.
  • newegg High-speed Shooting The PowerShot ELPH 500 HS digital camera is equipped with High-Speed Burst Mode that can capture 8.2 frames per second, letting you catch every single detail in pure Canon brilliance. You can also add a fun slow motion effect to you videos with Super Slow Motion Movie. Super Slow Motion Movie will record your clips at a high speed so that when you watch your videos, they'll be playing in slow motion.
  • newegg Full 1080p HD Video Experiencing the brilliance of Full 1080p HD video in a Canon PowerShot ELPH digital camera has never been easier. With the convenient dedicated movie button, you'll be able to instantly record everyday moments in amazing life-like realism at a push of a button. You can also operate the optical zoom while shooting video so you can get in close–but don't worry about shaky footage because Dynamic IS will help keep your videos steady!
  • newegg Advanced Smart AUTO for Stills and Videos that Shine The PowerShot ELPH 500 HS digital camera takes the quality of your still images and videos to a whole new level - automatically. The camera's advanced Smart AUTO system detects a wealth of information about the scene you're shooting, then automatically selects the optimal settings for you. Now with an expanded range of 32 shooting scenarios, the camera handles a wide variety of situations, freeing you up to concentrate on composing your shot and capturing the moment you're looking for.
  • newegg Movie Digest Mode Putting together a video containing highlights from family vacations, important occasions and other special events is now easier than you might imagine. Using the Movie Digest Mode, you can have the camera automatically record a short video clip (up to approximately 4 seconds) every time you shoot a still image. The camera will then combine an entire day's worth of clips into a single video.

5 out of 5 eggsInteresting color, GREAT features!

Pros: Sleek design
Full of GREAT features
Interesting color
Compact camera for easy travel
Touch Screen is easy and looks great

Cons: None just yet though others have commented about trouble with the touch screen controls. I haven't had ANY issues with the touch screen design.

Other Thoughts: Stumbled onto this great camera deal while looking to replace the same camera (foolishly) ordered from another HUGE online seller. THAT one was damaged and not new as stated in the description. This one was brand spanking new, in a cooler color, and listed at a MUUUUUCH better price. I just love Newegg and I promise never to stray again. Camera is wonderful, full featured, and the controls are fairly easy to find once you get used to the arrangement. Not necessarily intuitive, but again, pretty easy to find features once you play around with it for a while. GREAT price thanks so much Newegg!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat, but not a DSLR

Pros: Interesting features, adjustable flash, easy to carry, good daytime indoor. Boots up fast. Touch screen is nice, even taps to slide. Slow motion video is cool (but grainy).

Cons: Still grainy in night low light, but not bad. May take a few seconds to focus indoors. Hit or miss perfect indoor pictures. No panoramic stitch.

Other Thoughts: Although its better than all my older pocket digital cameras, its still not a DSLR. Daytime pictures inside and out without a flash are pretty good. Indoor takes practice. Low light best if not moving. Half the features are fun. The lens cover is very flimsy and came apart alredy. Wish Ihad a grand for an SLR, but for the price, I am very happy with this.

4 out of 5 eggsNice little camera

Pros: Feels well built, has tons of options and has a battery pack!

Cons: Menu is kinda tricky and the LCD touch screen isn't as functional as I had hoped. But overall it does work just not always on ur first try which might frustrate some but once its set to ur liking u shouldn't have to change most settings.

Other Thoughts: Overall I like this camera I would buy again. I just hope it's not too much for my mother! If ur not good at figuring tech stuff out then I say stay away but I like options so I was pleased!
