3 out of 5 eggsAargh! Opened in my pocket!

This review is from: Canon PowerShot ELPH 340 HS Black 16 MP 12X Optical Zoom 25mm Wide Angle Digital Camera HDTV Output

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!

This review is from: Canon PowerShot ELPH 340 HS Black 16 MP 12X Optical Zoom 25mm Wide Angle Digital Camera HDTV Output

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.
