Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS YouTube Performance Review
All the features the camera offers make it ideal for a YouTuber. We should add in our Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS review that the camera will provide smooth videos of high quality at very impressive frame rates. The TTL contrast detection system that the camera features helps it keep focus on multiple subjects and track subjects effectively. Furthermore, the DIGIC 5 sensor allows it to capture 1080p HD videos at a rate of 24fps and 720p HD videos at 30fps, while videos with a 640 x 480 resolution can be captured at 120fps.
The camera records videos in H.264 and MOV formats that save easily on SD cards. The videos can then be shown on a screen easily via HDMI, shared easily via a USB 2.0 port or even uploaded on sites without a problem via the Wi-Fi connectivity with iOS and Android devices. Adding to all that, you may extend your camera’s battery life for extended use with the ECO mode option that keeps the 3-inch LCD from consuming too much battery.
The compact camera weighing only 125 grams is very easy to carry around and makes for a helpful tool in capturing videos at high resolutions and impressive framerates. A few problems in the features and functionality of the camera include that the Wi-Fi connection to mobile devices is hard to set up and that the navigation menu is a little difficult to figure out. However, once you get used to the camera, it’s going to amaze you. Without a doubt this is one of the best cameras for YouTube for those on a budget.
