Spectacular Lens Power for Stunning Images

PowerShot ELPH 160
12x Optical Zoom

The PowerShot ELPH 170 IS camera features a 12x Optical Zoom so spectacular shots are within your reach. You'll love the flexibility it gives you when shooting with an amazing range of 25–300mm (35mm equivalent) in a slim, stylish compact camera. Plus, the Wide-Angle lens captures expansive image in every shot, adding depth, perspective and grandeur. Landscapes, city scenes, family shots and more benefit from the extra width. Whether you're shooting wide group shots or zooming to the telephoto end, your images are assured to be bright and clear.

Beautiful Images and Incredible Performance Start Here

20.0 Megapixel* sensor

Preserve all those special moments from weddings to vacations in stunning quality with the PowerShot ELPH 170 IS camera. The camera is equipped with a 20.0 Megapixel* sensor to help ensure that images are incredibly clear and beautifully detailed. The high level of resolution gives you the flexibility to be more creative with your shots: crop and enlarge any part of an image – you can be confident that the detail and resolution you need are there, even when you want to print and frame your photos.

PowerShot ELPH 160
DIGIC 4+ Image Processor

The PowerShot ELPH 170 IS camera's DIGIC 4+ Image Processor features accelerated processing speed to create fast, responsive performance, giving you a shooting experience that's easy and natural. The DIGIC 4+ Image Processor also enhances image quality in several ways. Processing of high ISO shots has been shortened by 60% compared to the DIGIC 4 Image Processor. This significantly reduces noise for brilliant color, smooth gradations, and beautiful detail even in low light. The processor also allows for the integration of electronic Dynamic IS. This advanced system compensates for multiple motion types, effectively preventing angular blur, shift blur, and blur caused by parallel movement and tilt shift. The result is images that are reliably sharp and clear at all lengths of the camera's powerful 12x Optical Zoom. The processor's highly efficient design also extends battery life.

A Smarter Camera Means Better Photos and Videos

Smart AUTO

Getting that great shot is as simple as pressing the shutter button on the PowerShot ELPH 170 IS camera with Smart AUTO, which automatically detects scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and the subject. On the PowerShot ELPH 170 IS, detected scenes are analyzed using 32 predefined shooting situations.

The camera then makes optimal settings to help ensure the best possible image capture, whether you're shooting stills or video. Smart AUTO also includes Advanced Subject Detection, which allows the camera to detect and track non-human moving subjects like animals and vehicles. With Smart AUTO, all you have to do is frame your shot and capture away.

Scene Modes

The PowerShot ELPH 170 IS camera provides shooting modes that easily give your shots a distinctly artistic feel without the need for any extra lenses and filters. You can make a quirky portrait using the Fisheye Effect or add a beautiful single-tone effect with Monochrome. Toy Camera Effect simulates a vintage look as if capturing the photo using a "toy" or pinhole camera.

Shooting Modes/Special Scene Modes
Smart AUTO The camera automatically selects the best shooting settings for optimal quality based on subjects and environmental factors to provide point-and-shoot simplicity.
Program The camera automatically and intelligently selects the aperture/shutter speed combination based on the shooting conditions.
Live View Control Enables Brightness, Color, and Tone adjustments to your images using easy-to-understand controls.
Portrait Brings the subject into focus while beautifully blurring the background.

Fisheye Effect Now you can get the fisheye effect – a classic photographic distortion – without a fisheye lens.
Miniature Effect Give images a miniature look with an effect that emphasizes perspective by blurring the top and bottom of the image.
Toy Camera Effect Simulates photos taken with "toy" or pinhole cameras, darkening the image at the edges to create a vignette effect.
Monochrome Choose from three single-tone effects: Black-and-White, Sepia, or Blue.
Super Vivid Super Vivid intensifies existing hues, saturating the scene with bright colors.
Poster Effect Poster Effect combines several similar shades into one color, turning subtle gradations into eye-catching, scene-popping contrasts.
Snow Shoot clear snow scenes without darkened subjects or an unnatural bluish tint.
Fireworks Create brilliant images of skyrocketing fireworks.
Long Shutter Use to blur moving subjects for artistic effect, ideal for urban night photography.
Movie Record video; unwanted scenes can be deleted in playback mode.

Actual results may vary from examples shown above.
Final image may vary depending on picture composition.

First of all, if you're wanting one of the newest Elph models and you're on a budget, choose the ELPH 170 IS over the ELPH 160, which is also new on the market. The 170 IS has better image stabilization.

I purchased this camera for a niece of mine and I decided to give it a test run before gifting it to her. Images are bright, crisp and clear for the most part. Videos are very good, just as good as my more expensive Sony camera, even though they are 720p. The focusing is fast and it is ready to take another picture pretty fast, especially if you aren't using the flash. Zoom is 12X optical, and even when zoomed out, the camera helps with camera shake. Small, will fit in a pocket. The LCD screen is only 2.7" - a little disappointed it doesn't have a 3" screen like most cameras now have.

What I recommend: If you have an older Elph model you're happy with, don't buy this camera for the higher MP. This has 20 MP and that DOESN'T make this a better camera. It's a ploy by almost all camera manufacturers to entice you to upgrade. Lower megapixel count is better almost all the time. Because if you try and blow these photos up into poster-size and you've cropped it a little before-hand, you will have very grainy-looking photos.

What comes in the box: Camera, wrist strap, battery and battery charger. You will need an SDHC card, I recommend a Class 10 as it will be faster and it's better if you're shooting videos. There is NO cable included to upload the photos to your computer and this doesn't have wi-fi. So you'll have to use a card reader or find a cable that fits this.

I wanted to write mainly about the size of this camera. But let me back up first...I had a previous ELPH, that was working fine for a few years, but I started noticing cataracts in my pictures. Examining the lens, I noticed that the lens was scratched in the middle, from what I assume was the lens cover opening and closing several times over the years. Maybe it was my fault for carrying it around in my pocket throughout the years, maybe it's Canon's fault...I don't know, but it did force me to get a new camera, the ELPH 170.

Size - I specifically like this camera for what it is - a small but powerful camera. I have an SLR, but to be honest, it sits in the closet for the most part. I don't want to be on vacation, at a family event like a wedding, or out with friends and have a big, clunky camera.

My brother once asked me when seeing me with my ELPH, "Who still carries a separate camera, when everyone has one on their phone?" Well, my answer to him was that phone cameras are great for their size, but really as cameras, they're not the greatest. And this is why I like this size of camera. It fits in a pocket and it takes excellent pictures. 12x zoom...dedicated camera...you'll get much better pictures than anyone else who is taking them with their phone, and then you can simply stick it back in your pocket again.

As far as specs, you can compare them yourself, but for me, I remember the days of film and the early days of digital cameras. The pictures I'm able to take today on a cheap camera with image stabilization and high resolution amaze me when I think of the past...but then I digress. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I really don't think you can go wrong buying a Canon or Nikon today, but size is of importance to me, and the size of this camera fits a nice balance between power and size.

Overall, this is a very good pocket-size camera for the price. The main thing that convinced me to buy it was the 12x zoom. One thing about it, however, really annoys me: It's impossible to turn off the digital zoom when shooting in fully automatic mode. Apparently it can only be turned off in program mode. Watching the zoom indicator while framing a shot is distracting, but when zooming in the fully auto mode I have to; otherwise it will zip right past the 12x optical limit & into the digital zoom range, up to 48x (!), without so much as a "by-your-leave." I HATE digital zoom! I'm undecided whether or not that's a deal-breaker. I may keep the camera & always shoot in program mode, or I may return it. Camera makers know that digital zoom is a useless gimmick! Why do they do things like this to their customers?

The size is just right. for portability. I have many Power Shot Cameras that are excellent and better than the ELPH 170 IS. The feature that I like best about the 170 IS model is its macro mode for close-ups of flowers etc. It is small and light, which I can carry with me all the time. The photo that you preview on the view finder is not as good as the image that is down-loaded in a computer. It is very economical at $139. I recommend this camera to anyone who has the need for the above features.

This Canon PowerShot is everything I hoped for. I have a SLR camera with different lens for major photo events, but I wanted a small compact camera that I could easily carry with me for those impromptu shots that often come along. While a phone camera is OK, I wanted better quality photos and this Canon delivers. With 20 MP and 12X zoom it delivers great photos. It is simple to use and the battery lasts for 200 + shots before needing to be recharged. If you are looking for a pocket camera that is simple to use and delivers quality photos, the Canon PowerShot ELPH 170 is the one.
