My experience with this camera and the pictures I can take with it
The Canon ELPH 180 is one of canons pocket sized cameras. Don’t count it out as a decent camera based on its price. There are many good things about this camera. With some well composed shots and a little editing you could mistake it for professional photography. Put this camera in the hands of anyone and you could be amazed on what you will get!
So, my story starts with making plans to travel to Worcester MA. I would be going to Monster Jam, a monster-truck show. The event started around 1PM and again at 7PM. Yes, I went to both showings! Anyways I wanted to bring my camera the Canon T7i. After reading the policies of the event, I had a problem. The DCU center does not allow cameras with detachable lenses to be admitted into the building at any event. Slightly irritated I turned and asked my girlfriend if it was time to buy another camera. I know I have an iPhone that can take photo and far better video but when I take video on my phone, I almost always get interrupted or run out of storage on my device. When I take photo, I like to be immersed in what I am doing.
I went to Target to see what I could get. I was split between the small Sony digital camera and the Canon ELPH 180. I went with the Canon, sorry all you Sony lovers. All I can say is that I am not disappointed. I took this little camera and spent an entire day shooting and taking video. The images that I got were not amazing originally but for the price of the camera what do you expect? After some editing and color correction I have some fairly good pictures.
The next couple days I took some random pictures around the house and in the back yard. I am not sure what to say… I am pretty happy with my purchase. For an entry level camera or a camera to buy to see if you even like photography, this is a solid start. The auto setting will get you decent photos and the zoom is okay. The camera, plus an SD card is going to put you back a little over $130. Compared to a SLR or DSLR that can be easily over $500 this is totally worth it. Also, another great feature that not a lot of people talk about is that this camera is so easy to tuck away in your pocket or purse to pull out and snap a couple picks. After your done power it off and the lens collapses for a sleek pocket-sized design. Smaller than my canon T7i and my iPhone 8 plus. The camera also has a threaded hole in the bottom to attach to a tripod plate or other rig for steady photography and varying mounting positions.
