Canon IXUS 310 HS review
The Canon IXUS 200 IS was Canon`s first touch screen camera. After the IXUS 210 IS, there is now also the IXUS 310 IS, equipped with a touch screen display. It takes a bit of getting used to the operation of a touch screen camera, and some people keep longing for the physical buttons. Nevertheless, it is a large, clear screen that reacts fast. The Canon IXUS 310 HS belongs to the Canon`s top digital IXUS cameras as only the IXUS 1000 HS offers a more powerful, 10x optical zoom lens, in comparison with the IXUS 310 HS`s 4,4x zoom lens.

The more experienced user can set the aperture and shutter speed manually. The Canon IXUS 310 HS camera can easily switch between photography and video recording via a special pictogram. During the recording of Full HD (1080p) videos, the image stabilizer and optical zoom remain functional. The Canon IXUS 310 HS is versatile and offers many possibilities, making it the ideal digital camera to take along everywhere. It is a compact camera packed in a stylish exterior.
