Default Which Canon - A220 or Elph300?

The a2200 is only $129 on sale, while the Elph300 is $249.

Is the 300 that much better to justify the cost? If anyone could explain why, I'd appreciate it.

thanks!

The difference between the A220 and the Elph 300 HS is that the 300HS is designed for low light level photography with a fast, F 2.0 lens and a very quick and updated imager. The A220 is just a snapshot camera. So consider how you want to use your new camera.

User reviews, professional reviews and photos from the 300HS very positive point to the fact that the 300HS is on a much higher performance level than the bargain priced A220. My clear choice would be the 300HS, without the least hesitation.

Thank you!
Yes, the low light is important - after some more research I found that the speed between shots is significantly shorter in the elph300, which alone would be a reason to choose it.

Thanks again for the quick response.
