Much better than our previous camera (a Canon AS 3000 something-or-orther) that wasn't HD quality. With a large memory card, you shouldn't be disappointed. We do the majority of filming outside and have been extremely happy with the picture and sound.
I have a good copy of the Canon 330 and wrote a good review of it - and I still like it. - BUT - I bought it on sale on Amazon. Gradually the price has crepted up to almost double what I paid. At the current price point, I might try the Canon 340, the Casio ZR700, or the Panasonic ZS25 or ZS20. I think this camera is now on premium pricing. I would not pay more than $200 or, preferably $175 for it - especially with its continuing battery issues. You can do better.
Hi, I am just an amateur photographer but, if it helps here is some info on the Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS. I will "assume" that the HS in the model number refers to High Speed and the specs lean in that direction. The 330 HS has a shutter speed of 1/2000th of a Second, the sensitivity has an Auto mode and manual of the ISO from 80 to 6400 in 1 step increments, there is a Hi-Speed Burst mode. In the Hi-Speed Burst mode the recording pixels are 1984x1488. The shutter speeds are sensitivity ranges are Not as great as some of the digital ie., DSLR's. I am still experimenting with my new camera and have not as yet taken a picture specifically requiring "Hi Speeds". Maybe someone more professional can translate the specs into your specific requirements . Good luck and I hope this helps. JH
I have not but if this is your main reason for the camera I would not get this one. I noticed it does not have a sports setting. Also it depends on the environment you are shooting in, bright outdoors it will probably be okay but it has a small lens and sensor so i would not want to use it indoors. Also distance is important...closer the better.
Don't know for sure because I have not used my ELPH 330 to shoot video of a basketball game, but have been pleased with what the camera can do with people moving around, cars going by and a dog doing doggy things.
