PROS

  • The ELPH 360 HS has a 12x optical zoom and 20-megapixel HD sensor for great stills and 1020p, 30-frames-per-second video.
  • A simple button gives quick connectivity with Wi-Fi and NFC.
  • The optical image stabilization and face detection focusing help with the long lens, plus you can optionally focus manually.

CONS

  • There is no built-in viewfinder, and the non-touch LCD screen is fixed in place.
  • The zoom lens is a slow f/3.6 to f/7.0, and the maximum ISO of 3200 makes it tough to get a picture in low-light situations.
  • With no manual exposure and no external flash shoe, this camera isn't aimed at advanced photo enthusiasts.
The Canon PowerShot ELPH 360 HS with a 12x optical zoom and a CMOS sensor that captures video up to 1020p HD at 30 frames per second is a step up from the ELPH 190 IS. The 20-megapixel sensor provides auto ISO of 80-3200 for low-light images, though the slow f/3.9-f/7.0 zoom lens might limit that. With a built-in Wi-Fi button, you can connect to your devices through Wi-Fi or NFC. Truly a compact camera, the 3-inch non-touch fixed LCD screen almost fills the ELPH 360’s back. The rechargeable lithium battery gets about 180 shots per charge with the built-in Wi-Fi, which comes up a little short of its predecessor that had no Wi-Fi.

The Canon ELPH 360's LCD screen is sharp and bright, again ranking it slightly ahead of other $200 cameras. However, it is not a touch screen display, which can greatly simplify the operation of a camera for inexperienced photographers who may be more familiar with operating a smartphone.

Speed on the 360 is pretty slow--the burst speed is just 2.5 fps. That's an improvement over the 190's .8, however.

When compared to other compact point-n-shoot digital cameras at the $200 price point, the Canon PowerShot ELPH 360 HS is a good option. It certainly doesn't excel in any one area, but it's a good enough all-around camera for the amount of money you're paying.
