Editor's Review

Canon's budget zoom model has upgraded from a CCD to a 1/2.3" CMOS sensor—meaning users of the new SX510 should see significant improvement over the older SX500 in low light scenarios. Besides the improved sensor, the SX510 also includes wi-fi, a rarity for a $250 advanced camera. Video quality was also improved from 720 to 1080p. Needless to say, the SX510 is definitely worth the few extra bucks to pick up this year's model. Canon's point-and-shoot models usually offer exceptional quality for the price and we don't expect any different for the SX510. This model also features optical image stabilization, a nice 30x zoom, and up to 10 fps continuous shooting. Nikon's P520 will get you a longer zoom and built-in GPS, but comes at a much higher price. The SX510 has exceptional value for the $250 price tag.

Canon PowerShot SX510 Reviews

Canon PowerShot SX510 Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users

Canon digital cameras are well known for having high quality optics, as well as being dependable and simple to use. Canon has earned a reputation for crafting some of the finest digital cameras and digital SLRs that you can buy, and is one of the largest manufacturers of digital cameras in the world today. Canon cameras are undoubtedly on the camera wish list of any consumer that desires a top quality camera. Sure enough, Canon has won PC Magazine's Reader's Choice Award for Service and Reliability repeatedly and camera models are consistently given top marks in reviews.

While Canon is not known as a brand that's cheap, Canon digital cameras have earned the best buy status. This should show you that the higher price tag is well deserved. Within the past few years, Canon begun producing several models that are more inexpensive, without sacrificing quality. The Canon PowerShot A1200 is one such camera. Unlike many other models you'd find at this price, the A1200 has a small optical viewfinder that makes shooting outdoors easy as well as AA batteries.

The Powershot A series, the SD or ELPH series compact point-and-shoots, and the Rebel consumer dSLRs such as the T4i are other Canon digital cameras that have earned high marks across the board. Durability, ease of use, and high picture quality are things you can rely on when you purchase a Canon camera. The Canon enthusiast compacts you will find in the S and G series cameras are some of the finest Canon digital cameras available. The advanced digital camera market has been dominated by these models for quite some time, as they appeal to both amateurs and professionals who require something pocketable. For instance, the Canon PowerShot G15 has a swiveling LCD screen, and a 12 megapixel sensor. It's also great 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.
