Editor's Review

Almost the same size as the 310 HS, the 510 HS packs a large 12x zoom into a very small package. Reviewed very well, the 510 HS features a 12x optical zoom, 1080p HD video, and a 3.2-inch touchscreen. Be warned that the touchscreen held the camera back from being a perfect performer due to finicky and sometimes slow operation. Also note that a replacement model, the 520 HS, has been announced. Interestingly, Canon has decided to add WiFi connectivity and scale the megapixel count back to 10, a more reasonable number that will hopefully yield even better results in low light.

Canon PowerShot ELPH 510 HS Reviews

Canon PowerShot ELPH 510 HS Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users

Top quality optics, reliability, and ease of use are just some of the reasons that customers choose Canon digital cameras. Canon has become widely recognized for manufacturing some of the best digital cameras and digital SLRs that you can buy, and is one of the leading digital camera manufacturers in today's world. Consumers looking for top quality cameras often have at least a few Canon cameras on their wish list. So when one looks at the winners of PC Magazine's Reader's Choice Award for Service and Reliability, it should be no surprise that Canon takes the top spot repeatedly. It also should be no surprise then that their cameras are consistently given top marks in reviews.

While Canon is not generally considered to be a cheap brand, Canon digital cameras have earned the status of best buy. This is an indication that you receive great value for the extra money. Recently, Canon has introduced a few models that sell for less, without sacrificing quality. One such camera is the Canon PowerShot A1200. Unlike many other models at this low price point, the A1200 has a small optical viewfinder that makes shooting outdoors easy as well as AA batteries.

Other Canon digital cameras have also earned high marks across the board, including the cheapest Powershot A series, the SD or ELPH series compact point-and-shoots, and the Rebel consumer dSLRs such as the T4i. Durability, ease of use, and high picture quality are things you can expect if you buy a Canon camera. Some of the best Canon digital cameras include the Canon enthusiast compacts you will find in the G and S series cameras. These cameras have taken over the advanced digital camera market for a few years now, being great for anyone who is in need of something pocketable, regardless of their level of experience. For instance, the Canon PowerShot G15 boasts a swiveling LCD screen, and a 12 megapixel sensor. It's also ideal for low light photography because of its very fast lens.

GPS and WiFi are features that Canon has been adding to its mid and high-end models recently to keep their cameras specifications right on the cutting edge. These better specifications differentiate the upper models from lower-end cameras, but mean that they also have a higher price tag. When buying a Canon digital camera, experts recommend that you thoroughly read Canon digital camera reviews and ratings and consult other users in order to pick the right model.
