12x Optical Zoom
The PowerShot ELPH 360 HS 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, compact camera. Plus, the wide-angle lens captures an expansive image in each shot, adding depth, perspective and grandeur. Landscapes, city scenes, family shots and more all benefit from the extra width. Whether you're shooting wide group shots or zooming to the telephoto end, your images can be bright and clear.
It's easy to capture clear, steady images with select PowerShot cameras, even in low light without using a tripod. That's because these cameras are equipped with Canon's innovative Intelligent IS. The system automatically analyzes camera movement and applies the ideal shake correction method for the shooting situation – allowing you to focus on framing and capturing your shot. For stills, the system selects from Normal IS, Panning IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod modes. When shooting video, the system selects from Dynamic IS, Powered IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Active Tripod IS modes. Icons clearly mark the image stabilization mode, whether you're shooting still images or video.

DIGIC 4+ Image Processor
The Canon DIGIC 4+ Image Processor powers the PowerShot ELPH 360 HS camera's functions and capabilities, including Hybrid Auto, Creative Shot and Full HD video shooting. Its processing speed creates fast, responsive performance for 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 up to 60% compared to the DIGIC 4 Image Processor. This helps significantly reduce 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 can compensate for multiple motion types, effectively preventing angular blur, shift blur and blur caused by parallel movement and tilt shift. The results are clear and sharp.
Canon HS SYSTEM Helps Provide Excellent Low-light Performance
The slim, compact PowerShot ELPH 360 HS camera gives you the power to capture beautifully detailed, naturally lit images even in low light – helping to reduce the need for flash and the occasionally unwelcome effects it produces. That's because the camera's 20.2 Megapixel* High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor works with the DIGIC 4+ Image Processor to create the Canon HS SYSTEM, specifically engineered for spectacular low-light performance. With the Canon HS SYSTEM, you'll experience excellent tracking performance even in low light, and achieve gorgeous still image quality at ISO speeds up to ISO 3200; beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas.

Large 3.0 inch LCD

The PowerShot ELPH 360 HS camera features Hybrid Auto, which records up to four seconds of video every time you shoot a still image, then automatically joins the clips and pictures* into a video that captures the essence of special days: vacations, important occasions or any time you're shooting many shots in a day.

Creative Shot Mode
Not only is the PowerShot ELPH 360 HS camera a stylish powerhouse, the camera also enables you to easily create artistic images with Creative Shot mode.
