Canon PowerShot 340 HS Review

With a 16 MP high-sensitivity CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 4+ image processor, the Canon PowerShot ELPH 340 HS Digital Camera produces high-resolution still images as well as full HD 1080p video in a small, portable package.

It is the combination of the sensor and processor that produces the Canon High Sensitivity System (HS SYSTEM), which helps to improve low-light photography capabilities by increasing the effective sensitivity levels while also lowering apparent noise for cleaner, sharper pictures.

Integrated optical zoom lens with a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-300mm covers a wide range of shooting situations from wide-angle to telephoto views, making it ideal for use in a variety of photography situations.

Working in low-light conditions and with longer focal lengths is made easier with Intelligent IS image stabilization, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake based on eight different detected shooting styles.

Intelligent IS image stabilization is available for both DSLR and mirrorless cameras. Furthermore, a variety of shooting modes are available to enhance image creation by allowing for greater creative expression while also ensuring real, consistent exposures regardless of the shooting environment.

An additional feature of the camera that complements its photography capabilities is built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, which enables the rapid transmission of photographs and movies to other connected mobile devices and home computers, as well as to selected social networking sites.

Using NFC technology, as well as a dedicated Mobile Device Connect Button, the process of connecting and sharing is made easier than ever before! It is also possible to operate and release the camera’s shutter from mobile devices once they are connected.
