Enhance your purchase
Canon PowerShot ELPH 190 IS - digital camera is rated 2.83 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Geordie from Light, Portable, Shake Stabilizer - as good as or better than GoPro I have worn one out and now own a second. I use it daily and it gets a real workout each day. It has great options and is easy to download the video/photos via the card - my choice. I promote it when people ask which camera they should purchase. The present one has a nanosecond more of a lag on the video start compared to my last. The camera is up and recording almost immediately. It rides on a modified tripod on my bicycle and records video as I pedal. The camera removes the vibration from the videos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by portage from DIDN'T LAST It worked pretty well for a while with about 20% of the pictures out of focus. Overall it was easy to use. I used it about twice a week. It gave out about 13 months after I bought it. Just out of warranty. The display screen quit working one month after warranty expired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nancy Z from I love this camera I use this camera every day, I have for several years now. I love it. I start each day by sticking it in my pocket. I own a cat boarding kennel and have to take pics of kitties to send to their owners every day. This little camera is perfect - it meets all the conditions I need - it is little, I can stick it in my pocket and carry around with me, I don't need (or want a big fancy camera for my award winning pictures (!!), it takes great pictures quickly for those moments a cat is doing something TOO cute, the pictures are sharp and clear with good color. I just grab it out of pocket, turn it on, zoom in a bit and click and I've got exactly what I need. I love that the battery is rechargeable and I'm not always replacing batteries. My only problem is I thought I was too good to use the wrist band. Last week I dropped it and now the lenses aren't working when I try to turn it on. I am quite disheartened that I couldn't buy a new one immediately - they're on backorder. I hope they're available again soon, I'd hate to have to get something else. And I hope they bring it back in BLUE again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cfsetncdw from Canon PowerShot ELPH 190 IS - digital camera - Poor quality pictures The quality of pictures of still items, such as equipment and parts is very poor. Appears to have an "ok" ability for facial pictures. Would not recommend if you are concerned with being able to zoom effectively and still take a good picture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DAwn from Bad microphone position - LCD breaks too easily This is my 5th Elph camera. I upgraded to this one for the wireless features. I like being able to download the pictures directly from my phone through the wi-fi connection, but it is sometimes slow, and I wish it was an easier interface. I used the camera for a lot of video and I'm disappointed that the microphone has been moved to the top of this camera (from the front of my last elph), right next to the zoom button. Therefore, you have to be really careful when holding the camera and especially when zooming, or you are likely to cover the mic and have all muffled sounds. Additionally, the sound of the lens moving and focusing comes through very loudly on the video and is annoying. My other 4 elphs were very strong and withstood several drops and abuse. The LCD in this elph shattered just from being in my pocket (I guess pressure from the jeans when bending or sitting?) Overall, I'm not happy with this camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TattooedPretty from Love it. Easy to use Its awesome. My fiance chose it as his anniversary gift from his job. Its small but pretty cool. Has wifi so you can send the pics to your phone, PC, printer, tablet, w.e. Also when you download the app on your phone you're able to view the camera's viewer from your phone and can snap pics via the app. Idk how it is for professional photography but we did a test run and the park and was pretty good unless the object was in motion, like our dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by flobo from junk. easy to use, yes. the camera worked well for two months, then abruptly showed dark corners in the display screen....as if shutter is not opening completely. the photos also have dard corners all around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RagTimer from Almost all photos are out of focus The images taken with the ELPH 190 were not nearly as sharp as my wife's old Canon ELPH SD600, which has WAY lower resolution (6MP. I tried several different options and techniques, but nothing worked. Almost ruined all shots of my first granddaughter's first birthday party, but I was able to salvage the out-of-focus images using some specialized software. Please see the Amazon negative customer reviews on this model to confirm my experience.
