Camera Unboxing and Review: Canon ELPH-350


I don't think anyone will see this, because it's been retropublished by scheduling, which basically means I published it in the past (so it's actually Jan. 14 today, but I'm putting it under Jan. 7 on the blog roll).

I finally got a proper camera! I got this as a Christmas present under the current situation (I don't know how else to describe it without being explicit, and it's not something I think I want to remember, but whatever), had to charge the battery for the camera to work, so this is more like a really quick re-unboxing just to show what's in the box and the specs and stuff. All pictures unless otherwise noted are taken by the Samsung Galaxy 1 camera phone that I have been using for all of my pictures so far (notice how it doesn't have the best focusing, especially on text).

Overall, it seems to be a solid camera that can record video. The digital display on the back is quite lackluster and pixelly, but the pictures still turn out pretty well. A quick flip through the menu shows that it is very customizable, with different modes and fine adjustment of settings. I plan on using it to take more pictures for the blog, as it's much easier to directly use the SD card by plugging it into my computer than to extract pictures from my phone by downloading it from Dropbox. Pictures also take up a lot of space, so I can clear out some room on my phone now too. ◊
