PROS

  • This entry-level point-and-shooter packs in basic functionality at a price that's hard to beat.
  • Beginning users will appreciate features such as Smart Auto, aimed at automatically calibrating the camera to current shooting conditions.
  • For customizing images, Canon includes a number of Scene Modes, which let users adjust the camera's settings.

CONS

  • The ELPH 180 does not offer image stabilization, a capability widely available elsewhere.
  • Wi-Fi is not aboard.
  • If you want 1080p HD video, you won't get it in this model.
This budget-conscious pocket camera is geared to novices and others who don't want to plunk down a lot of cash, but who don't mind doing without high-end features as a result. HD video is limited to 720p, for example, and the non-touch, low-res rear LCD measures only 2.7 inches. However, the camera is simple to use and produces images of better quality than you'll probably achieve from a smartphone. An incremental update to Canon's earlier ELPH 150, the 180 adds capabilities like Auto Zoom, designed to automatically zoom a subject into frame and to keep the subject in focus.

Canon's new entry-level ultra compact PowerShot ELPH 180 succeeds last year's ELPH 160 and brings with it incremental upgrades, but it remains easy on the wallet. Many of the Canon ELPH 180's features and specs mirror those of its predecessor. The 20-megapixel CCD sensor remains unchanged, as does the 8x optical zoom 28-224mm equivalent lens, which has a maximum aperture range of f/3.2 to f/6.9. Notably, the ELPH 180's lens or sensor does not include any sort of mechanical image stabilization.

There are no bells and whistles—the camera omits Wi-Fi, and the CCD sensor means that video tops out at 720p at a fixed 25fps frame rate. The rear LCD is also pretty basic, 2.7 inches in size with a low 230k-dot resolution. It's the Elph for those who don't want to spend a lot of money, and don't mind missing out on features.
