    Good Camera for Travel

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    This camera is small and lightweight. It easily fits in a pants pocket or purse (even a very small purse). I was very happy with how easy it was to carry around and use when traveling. I wish it came with a case though. The large, bright screen makes it easy to compose pictures. Anyone familiar with the Canon Rebel series would find the menus on this camera similar and easy to use. The camera gives you a lot of control in manual settings, but I also found the AUTO mode to be quite effective for most of my needs. I am very impressed with the photo quality, especially the accuracy of colors, like a blue sky. (I have seen other cameras "wash out" a blue sky but not this camera.) The camera also does an excellent job in scenes with high contrast. The photos come out great and require little or no editing. Battery life is excellent and I like that the charger does not have a cord. One less cord to drag around. The charger's prongs fold up, too, so it is very portable. One minor complaint is that I wish the lens had a wider angle in order to take more impressive landscape photos. Another complaint, which causes me to knock one star off the rating, is that the wifi is very clunky. It requires you to download an app onto your computer and sign up for a Canon image service. I would have expected to only need to download an app. Not create some kind of account. The wifi is a useless feature to me and I am happy to continue putting the SD card into my computer or printer slot. Overall this was a great purchase and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a very portable little camera that has a good zoom and takes great pictures. It is good for travel because it does a great job in a variety of shots, whether you are taking landscape photos, close-ups, or photos of people. I brought this camera along on a trip where I also used my iPhone 6s for some pictures. The Canon ELPH 360 took better pictures, hands-down.

    no USB port

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    This camera has nowhere to plug in a USB cable. So you can't move the photos onto your computer with a USB cord. You have to use wifi to do it wirelessly with the faulty, unreliable Canon software to get your photos off of this camera. And you need to register with Canon and fumble through a clumsy installation process before you can do that. That also requires that you have wifi available to you when you want to do the transfer - not just to install the software but also every time you move photos from your camera to a computer. I guess many people don't care, but that can be problematic depending on where you're traveling, and at home I'm wondering if it adds to data consumption. And the software for transferring the photos doesn't even work right, so I'll probably end up pulling out the SD card and using a card reader instead to transfer the photos. This is frustrating because the camera otherwise is pretty good. It's friendly to use, with the necessary features. It's a decent cheap point-and-shoot. I just really don't like this nonsense about not having a port to plug a cable into. That's a deal breaker, the way I see it. I can't imagine how many pennies they shaved off the price by leaving off such a basic component.

    Canon did it again!

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    Great product! I've owned a few ELPH cameras through the years and this one is as great as the others! Good features for a $210 point-and-shoot camera. Smartphone cameras are catching up in quality BUT Point-and-Shoot cameras are still better because they have a physical zoom lens. This camera has great photo quality, burst mode at about 7 shots a second, good low-light images, decent battery life(Make sure you have at least 2 spare batteries if you're going to be taking photos all day. And it's small and slim which it will easily fit in a pocket or in a small case with spare batteries attached to a belt loop. Overall, a great compact camera. I definitely recommend the ELPH 360 HS over the ELPH 180 or 190 BECAUSE of the HS system, image stabilization(Especially when recording video) It's definitely worth the extra $40 or so. Canon has definitely dominated this market for years and will likely continue to do so for years to come.

    Easy to Use and Easy to Carry

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I have several PowerShot SX's and I like them. But I've been cycling a lot lately and I wanted something smaller and lighter. I didn't expect to find it to have almost twice the Megapixels as my last SX so that was a pleasant surprise. If you're use to using PowerShot then the User Interface is about the same thing. Design choices come down to compromises. I would have preferred a screen that tilts up but I like getting so much picture taking power in something smaller than my hand with a good image stabilizer capability. I really like being able to carry this little guy around my neck or tucked into a little gadget bag on the bike. I haven't considered mounting it on the bike because I think that the vibrations may be a little harsh for it. I like to stop to take a drink and shoot a few pictures and then attach the images to my ride maps on MyMaps.

    Just an "Ok" camera

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    The Canon - PowerShot ELPH 360 20.2-Megapixel Digital Camera for the value of the camera is a decent, user-friendly point and shoot camera. This camera features 20 mexapixels which the majority of the photos taken are very clear and high quality. In addition, I appreciate the decent 3"color LED screen which makes taking and viewing back photos easier on the eyes. In addition, this phone features a nice built in stabilizer to help if you have shaky hands when taking a photograph as well as built-in-auto flash to help with a variety of photo settings you may take photographs in. Fair price for the quality of the camera and the camera does take nice, quality photographs. I feel that this camera is fairly easy to use and operate and I would recommend this Canon brand camera to others who are in the market for a new camera that is overall inexpensive and easy to use.

    Old PowerShot ELPH was better quality construction

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    Bought this camera to replace my old PowerShot ELPH SD 1400 IS. I was extremely satisfied with my old camera, but after 10 years she is now on her last legs. Ordered the Canon - PowerShot ELPH 360 20.2-Megapixel Digital Camera on line and was quite disappointed with the construction quality of this newer version. The new model has a cheap plastic body and the design is boxy and clunky compared to the older, sleeker, better quality metal cased PowerShot. No doubt the photo quality is as good or better than the older version, but then again, so are cell phone cameras. I happen to need a small, heavy duty pocket sized camera for work and my cell phone doesn't fit the bill. I returned the Canon - PowerShot ELPH 360 20.2-Megapixel Digital Camera and am still looking for a rugged, well constructed compact camera to replace my old PowerShot.

    Best Point & Shoot Camera

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I purchased this camera to replace my Nikon Coolpix that started to malfunction. It was a debate between purchasing another Nikon or give Canon a try. So glad that I chose this Canon ELPH 360. I read several of the reviews that were posted on this site and was able to obtain enough information to make my final decision. Prior to purchasing I visited a Best Buy store to get a true feel for this product. I used my new Canon for a trip to Disney World in Orlando. It's super easy to use(just point & shoot) and takes great photos. I ordered the purple color and the color is exactly as pictured. My order was placed online and the process was quick and simple. The camera arrived in the promised time frame and in good condition. Very happy with this purchase.

    Convenient digital camera

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    The Canon ELPH 360 digital camera is convenient to carry, sturdy and yields quality images. The camera has many settings that add little to a point and shoot camera. The advanced technology will be of interested and value to some users who will spend the time of master the somewhat complex directions. For me, a pocket camera is superior to my iPhone allowing greater control over framing of the scene. The Flash is superior to my previous Canon camera. The ease of transferring images to a printer or a computer is important to me. My pre-teen grandchildren can use the camera without fear of damage but the complexity of the settings eludes them. This is not a camera for sports events but an excellent choice for travelers and family events.
