If you buy a digital camera in the 200 euro price range , you know that you need to pay on average or below average for average features. These key points and shooting cameras simply don’t have top-shelf shooting capabilities or image quality. And if you hope that my Canon PowerShot ELPH 360 review shows a model that can completely overcome these general limitations, then you are disappointed.
However, this does not mean that the PowerShot ELPH 360 is a bad camera – far from it. The ELPH 360 may not offer the greatest functionality, but it is a camera that exceeds the price point of most other models. It’s a camera with a lot of good features, even if it doesn’t really have one great feature to stand out from the crowd. The PowerShot 360 is a versatile camera that works in a wide variety of situations while offering a very reasonable price.
If you already have an ELPH 350 from last year, you probably don’t want to upgrade your ELPH 360 anymore. Canon did not give the PowerShot ELPH 360 much difference compared to the previous version. In fact, if you look at two cameras side by side – with a hidden brand – you can’t tell the difference.

With a resolution of 20.2 megapixels, the Canon PowerShot ELPH HS 360 exceeds the price point of most cameras. Unfortunately, the ELPH 360’s larger image sensor (physical size) has no more than low-cost cameras, which means that its ability to create high-quality photos that fit more expensive models is limited. This feature of Canon’s camera with shooting function is the 1 / 2.3-inch image sensor , which is the smallest image sensor in today’s digital cameras.
Although the image quality of the ELPH 360 is quite good when shooting outdoors where sunlight provides light to the scene, if you are forced to shoot in low light conditions indoors, you will see a decrease in photo quality on the screen. The PowerShot 360 does not allow an ISO value higher than 3200 , which means that you will eventually have to use the flash quite a bit indoors. Unfortunately, because Canon gave ELPH 360 to such a small built-in flash, it doesn’t provide much light to the scene, resulting in lost and missing image quality.
Surprisingly, when a digital camera comes at a low price, the PowerShot ELPH 360 works really fast when the lighting is good. This camera does not have significant long-distance shooting problems when shooting in lighting conditions , which means you can take pictures of fast-moving pets and children without having to worry about them falling out of the frame before the camera can take a picture. Shooting delays are also minimal when you are not using the flash. This camera has extremely high performance levels compared to others at a similar price point. However, the performance of the ELPH 360 significantly slows down the use of the flash .
As with conventional cameras, the Canon ELPH 360 is very easy to use. It has a minimum number of buttons, which means you don’t have to worry about operating the camera manually. Canon has designed this model as a fully automatic point-and-shoot camera.
With PowerShot 360, you get access to a number of fun special effects. You have to use a combination of special effects features with special benefits that allow you to change the toggle switch and change the on-screen menus, which can be a little confusing in the first place.
At 0.9 inches thick, the PowerShot ELPH 360 fits easily in a pocket or wallet, making it a great addition to a more expensive DSLR that’s hard to carry in a camera bag. You can take this camera with you in places where a large camera bag is simply not practical.
For a slim camera, the ELPH 360 12x optical zoom lens is a great feature. Not many years ago, a large camera with 10x or 15x optical zoom was relatively normal and a thin camera limited to 3x or 5x zoom. The PowerShot 360 12x zoom ensures the camera’s great versatility, allowing it to succeed in a variety of shooting situations.
The Canon ELPH 360 LCD screen is sharp and bright, again slightly for the rest of the 200-frame camera. However, it is not a touch screen , which can greatly simplify the operation of the camera for inexperienced photographers, who may be more sensitive than using a smartphone.
