5.0 out of 5 stars Great Camera, September 26, 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon PowerShot SX510 HS 12.1 MP CMOS Digital Camera (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
I have the professional Canon 5D Mark 2 camera with all the lenses, flash filters and everything else, but I needed a small camera for riding my motorcycle to events. After researching I settled on the Canon PowerShot SX510 HS, which I am glad I did. The first weekend I took over 300 photographs and I am extremely happy with this camera. I was really surprised at how small it is but it does take a nice 12 meg picture. For the price, I can't imagine using anything else.

How would you rate the image quality? I never do video so only thing that is important to me is image quality. I have a nikon D5000 with 3 lens and its a bit much to lug around..I'm still debating between this one and the Sx50.

The color is better on the sx50. I just bought the sx510 and am still on the fence with it.

After having it for a month or so are you still as happy with it? I have a SX120 IS and am thinking about upgrading.

Did you mean to say SX500 or is there a "SX50". Also, can you please give us an update on your SX510? Thanks so much!

I prefer to take a lot of photos very rapidly, and with my work camera, I have a very hard time with the quality. It's a Nikon COOLPLIX L100. How is this camera with that?

I just got it, so I will be trying it out.

And the sx50 has a viewfinder, which is great if you use reading glasses -- you can adjust the viewfinder instead of wearing your glasses. This camera seems like it would be perfect if it had a viewfinder, but I am interested in your take on the color.

The sx50 is A LOT more money. I just went to compare it, and it was $200 more.

I just moved to Hawaii and am replacing a broken DSLR. I want something a little smaller to bring to the beach and hiking with me but I have two small, quick toddlers, so reaction time (not sure what the technical term is) is very important to me. My past experience with point-and-shoot models is that I start taking a photo and by the time the camera actually reacts, my kids are in the other room or screaming. Obviously, the DSLR didn't have this issue. Any insight into how this model compares with a DSLR (canon eos rebebl t3i)?
Thanks!
