Nice image quality
Smooth/great quality HD filming
The body is pretty light, I like/am used to heavier frames. I miss the cold aluminum sturdiness of the SD1400is.
It doesn't come with a usb cord - I'm sure by now you may have an extra mini usb cord (top hat) laying around but it would've been nice.
LCD can be a bit grainy at times.
Canon went with the new Digic 4+ processor for the ELPH 340 - think of it as a happy medium between Digic 4 and 5 but optimized. I haven't had any issues with speed or lag. The camera responds promptly every time. As far as battery life, I will report back after a day of shooting images. Either way I still would recommend you purchase a back up battery just in case.
The initial set up was quick and painless. I would love if they added the ability to include copyright info within the camera but this can be done in Photoshop in a click - it would still be nice to have. The Wi-Fi was surprisingly responsive and I ran into no trouble with setting it up with my router, phone or PC. This camera also has NFC for even easier connections.
In my test videos, I was impressed with the image stability the most - this would make a great vlogging companion. The screen has a small amount of grain during playback but remember this is for review. Once imported into my computer the HD video looked great.
You must try out the Canon CW app in tandem with the camera. This app has remote shutter, the ability to share/browse pictures, remote shut off, and more! Even if you don't plan on using it, give it a try. I used it with the Android app. Though there is a slight delay, but it isn't off putting.
All in all I am happy with my purchase and plan to use this for a long time. I will upload pictures into the customer photo section as soon as I can!
I have added a couple images to the customer section. I am having a great time working with this camera.
11/18/14 update...I mailed my camera in to Canon for evaluation after reading a service advisory sent to me by a Canon employee. Despite this service advisory put out BY Canon that describes the EXACT problem I am having, they are refusing to fix it (also, the advisory states very clearly, if your camera has these problems, it will be fixed and sent back to you free of charge). Instead, I've been offered a refubrished one for $90. I cannot recommend Canon to anyone at this point. A company that cannot stand behind their warranties, or even their public advisory notices, is not a company I'm willing to give my money to. Too bad - I really loved that camera.
It has the usual delay mode for setting the camera down to tae group pictures with the photographer. The timer can be custom set up to a 30 second delay if you want, and up to 10 pictures can be taken before setting it again. Or you can use a feature that when it detects a smile, or wink, it will take a picture.
There is less than 1 second delay after taking a picture until the still image is off the screen and you can tae another picture.
The 12x optical zoom works great and can make high quality 8x10 photos. The 24x digital zoom is good too and works good with 5x7, but I haven't tried it for 8x10 yet. The 48x digital zoom is ok, but does lose some quality.
Video: It can use the 12x optical zoom for video, and unlike some other cameras, with the Canon Powershot ELPH 340 HS, you CAN zoom in and out while recording video. The microphone is located in the front of the camera too, so your fingers don't cover it.
