Beautiful Images and Incredible Performance Start Here
16.0-Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS Sensor
The PowerShot ELPH 340 HS camera is equipped with a 16.0 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor to make even your everyday photography remarkable. The highest resolution CMOS sensor used in any PowerShot camera, the sensor takes in more light, so images are clear and beautifully detailed. High ISO shots are particularly impressive, with less noise and expanded dynamic range. And the 16.0 Megapixel resolution gives you the flexibility to be more creative with your shots: crop and enlarge any part of an image – you can be confident that the detail and resolution you need are there.

DIGIC 4+ Image Processor
The new Canon DIGIC 4+ Image Processor powers the PowerShot ELPH 340 HS camera's advanced functions and capabilities, including Hybrid Auto, Creative Shot, and Full HD video shooting at 30p in the easy-to-share MP4 format. Its accelerated processing speed creates fast, responsive performance, for a shooting experience that's easy and natural. The DIGIC 4+ Image Processor also enhances image quality in several ways. Processing of high ISO shots has been shortened by 60% compared to the DIGIC 4 Image Processor. This significantly reduces noise for brilliant color, smooth gradations, and beautiful detail even in low light. The processor also allows for the integration of electronic Dynamic IS. This advanced system compensates for multiple motion types, effectively preventing angular blur, shift blur, and blur caused by parallel movement and tilt shift. The result is images that are reliably sharp and clear at all lengths of the camera's powerful zoom. The processor's highly efficient design also extends battery life.

3 out of 5 eggsAargh! Opened in my pocket!

Pros: Large LCD screen, 12x optical zoom, stabilization, close macro

Cons: Can turn on and project lens in pocket, no stitch assist, platform-dependent Wi-Fi, misleading specs

Other Thoughts: First reviewed this the day I got it (see my review 10/18/2014), said I'd follow up.

I can cope without stitch-assist, partly because I've had lots of practice and partly because panorama-stitching software is so much smarter these days (I use hugin).

I still love the 12x zoom but note that it doesn't focus as close as I'd like, yet still displays the little autofocus frame, so I can't tell the photo is out of focus until I see it on a large screen.

The battery monitor is still useless, indicating a full battery right up to the moment when the camera shuts down in the middle of a shot and demands a fresh battery. Seriously, Canon? After all these years?

Alas, a more serious defect: the convenient Playback button has moved, replaced by the (to me) useless Wi-Fi button. It's now so crowded in that area that it's difficult to hold the camera steady and operate anything (like zooming or selecting macro mode) without accidentally triggering something else. Worse, unlike the slightly concave Playback button in the 110, these buttons are convex and very sensitive, easily activated when I reach into my pocket to take the camera from its case or put it back. No wonder other reviewers say the battery life is short.

But that's not the worst of it--unlike the power button, which is deliberately small and recessed so it's almost impossible to press inadvertently, the shutter release is very sensitive. And once the Playback or Wi-Fi button turns the camera on, the slightest touch of the shutter release will project the lens! Yikes! In the case, in my pocket!

Had I known that, I wouldn't have bought this camera. Even so, it takes great pictures and does what I need until I meet the next snake.

4 out of 5 eggsZoom!

Pros: Large LCD screen, 12x optical zoom, stabilization, close macro

Cons: No stitch assist, Wi-Fi isn't platform-agnostic, deceptively incomplete specs

Other Thoughts: I loved my Canon PowerShot ELPH 110 HS but my reflexes (when a snake I was photographing struck at me!) damaged the camera beyond repair. I looked at the Canon offerings, saw this one and thought it sounded like a step up, with a lot more optical zoom. Transferring photos wirelessly sounded like a plus.

Not really a step up: longer and fatter, a slower processor, cluttered with hyped "features" that I can't imagine anyone wanting in a point-and-shoot camera, especially since it takes so long to select them from the various menus you'll almost certainly miss the shot, and the quiet disappearance of stitch-assist, a feature that was actually useful. Why not tell us up-front that Wi-Fi requires Windows or Mac? Better yet, why not disclose the transfer protocol so we GNU/Linux users can set it up ourselves?

That said, it's a decent camera, I can upload from the SD card as before, and the macro focus seems way closer and sharper than the 110 was. Wonder if the battery monitor finally works?

I'll update if experience changes my opinions.
