didnt like the touch screen,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon PowerShot ELPH 510 HS 12.1 MP CMOS Digital Camera with Full HD Video and Ultra Wide Angle Lens (Red) (Electronics)
Jay Goodier's review covered it all.. i dont have anything more to say really.. returned it and purchased an SX230HS because i felt the touch screen of ELPH510 is more of a nuisance than actually helpful. It is not even intuitive. Good old button controls are better. Plus SX230 is cheaper, lighter and thinner.
ELPH510 is technically thinner than the SX230 but thats because the SX230 thickness is measured including the slightly projected lens. otherwise the SX230 body is thinner and is lot more comfortable in the hand. And I loved the 14x zoom of SX230. It performs very well, gives amazing results and no complaints so far.
Giving the ELPH510 3 stars because its not so bad, not so good either.
