Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS Low Light Sample

Canon_Elph_330

The compact Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS in Black.

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS is a WiFi-enabled compact digital camera that features a 10x optical zoom from 24mm to 240mm.  It is built around a 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor and utilizes Canon’s DIGIC 5 sensor, which is typically found in Canon’s higher end cameras.

With a size-to-performance review in mind (i.e., the ELPH 330 is quite small), the Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 performs very well in low light up to ISO 1600:  colors are accurate, text in the samples is readable, definition is good and noise, while noticeable at 1600, is kept in check.  Not surprisingly, noise ramps up at ISO 3200 and much further at 6400, but if you’re looking to take snap-shots in those situations, the ELPH 330 does admirably well.
