From the Manufacturer

The Leading Edge of Design and Technology

Beautifully and Astonishingly Thin
At a slim 0.86 inches, the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS is the world’s thinnest camera with a 28mm Wide-Angle lens, Canon PowerShot ELPH 510 at Amazon.com12x Optical Zoom, and Optical Image Stabilizer.* Its stylish form is enhanced by its lustrous finish, which gives you a choice of three refined colors: Red, Black and Silver. But real beauty goes beyond skin deep with the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS. Amazingly, Canon did not sacrifice performance for style.

*As of August 23, 2011

12x Optical Zoom with 28mm Wide-Angle Lens
Canon PowerShot ELPH 510 at Amazon.comThe PowerShot ELPH 510 HS features a powerful Genuine Canon 12x Zoom Lens that delivers outstanding optical performance and versatility. Fitting such a high-performance lens with such wide zoom range into a camera so thin would normally be considered an impossible feat. Canon’s expert optical engineering met the challenge by developing a light-folding retractable-prism lens barrel, which achieves outstanding compactness with high zoom power and superb performance. The zoom starts at 28mm wide-angle and extends to 336mm telephoto (35mm equivalent), covering an exceptionally wide range. The telephoto reach gives you the freedom to capture subjects from a considerable distance, while the 28mm wide-angle makes it easy to shoot sweeping landscapes, large groups of people and tall buildings.

Optical Image Stabilizer
Handheld shooting can often lead to camera shake, making photos and videos blurry. Canon’s Optical Image Stabilizer is a sophisticated system that uses lens-shift technology to correct for unwanted camera movement. It makes handheld photography more practical, providing excellent image quality in many difficult shooting situations: outdoors at dusk, inside without a flash, and even at the telephoto end of the zoom range without a tripod. For photos, it enables shooting at slower shutter speeds, accommodating more low-light shooting situations than ever before without having to boost ISO sensitivity. With camera shake and vibration reduced, you get a sharper, steadier image. And because it is an optical system, there is none of the image degradation typical with electronic image stabilizers.

Experience the Power

The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you take bright, clear photos in an even wider range of shooting situations. Beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The system is the result of two technologies brought together in PowerShot cameras: a high-sensitivity imaging sensor, which is able to capture more light; and the DIGIC Image Processor, which actively reduces noise with high-speed image processing. The 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor in the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS incorporates advanced light reception technology that enhances sensitivity. The DIGIC 4 Image Processor provides a major boost in noise reduction, expanding the usable ISO range to an amazing high of 3200. The Canon HS SYSTEM takes the frustration out of low-light shooting, delivering clear, blur-free images.

Canon DIGIC 4 Image Processor
Canon DIGIC Image Processors have set the standard for functionality and performance since their groundbreaking introduction in 1999. With each successive generation, DIGIC processors have brought elevated performance and powerful new features to PowerShot digital cameras. The DIGIC 4 processor has ushered in a new level of picture quality and accelerated processing, making possible features such as high-speed continuous shooting, Full HD video and Face Detection Self-timer. New, more powerful noise reduction algorithms also provide improved low-light capture.

Memorable Moments in Spectacular Full HD

Canon Full HD Video Advantage
In addition to the Canon HS SYSTEM, the combination of the advanced CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 Image Processor in the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS makes it possible to shoot crisp, clear high definition video. Imagine the fun and excitement of being able to shoot spectacular 1080p Full HD video with stereo sound that you can later watch on your HDTV or download to your computer to share with family and friends. In addition to being able to shoot Full HD 1080p video at 24* frames per second, the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS can also shoot 720p HD video at 30** frames per second.

*Actual frame rate is 23.976 fps.
** Actual frame rate is 29.97 fps.

HDTV playback via HDMI output and CEC
It’s easy to enjoy and share the videos you shoot with the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS. Simply connect its HDMI terminal to your HDTV using an Canon PowerShot ELPH 150 at Amazon.comHDMI cable. And because the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS supports HDMI-CEC technology, you’ll be able to control the playback of your images and videos on any CEC-enabled HDTV using the TV’s remote control. (CEC – Consumer Electronic Control – is part of the HDMI specification, enabling components in a system to communicate with one another.)

Canon PowerShot ELPH 510 at Amazon.comWith the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS, you can also shoot video in the Apple iFrame format, which is a computer-friendly standard that speeds up importing and editing of videos. It keeps file sizes small, making it more convenient to upload or e-mail high-quality videos. The iFrame format enjoys native support in compatible Mac and Windows video applications, making it unnecessary to perform time-consuming and often quality-degrading conversions.

Get the Shot You Want with Just a Touch

PureColor LCD System
The PowerShot ELPH 510 HS digital camera’s large and bright 3.2-inch PureColor LCD wide screen makes it easy to view and frame your shots in Canon PowerShot ELPH 510 at Amazon.comhigh resolution (461,000 dots). PureColor technology delivers excellent contrast with rich, true-to-life color. Moreover, you can view the LCD screen over a surprisingly wide angle – above, below or to either side – without color shifts and with minimal reflections. A scratch-proof hard coating and a dust-repellent fluorine coating ensure a durable screen that dependably displays clear, vibrant images. The wide aspect ratio (16:9) provides ample room for information icons and touch buttons, preventing them from getting in the way of the image, and you can enjoy a brilliant full-screen image when shooting or playing back your Full HD videos.

Touch Panel LCD with Touch Shutter
The PowerShot ELPH 510 HS features touch panel technology that makes using the camera more intuitive and fun. Simply touch the screen to choose and track an AF point, change camera settings, record and play videos and much, much more! It also has an innovative Touch Shutter function that allows you to release the shutter right from the screen. Just touch the desired subject with your finger. An AF box will appear and track the subject as it moves. Then just lift your finger to release the shutter. It’s that simple.

A PowerShot that Keeps Up with the Action

It’s a great feature for those who enjoy taking pictures at sporting events. High-Speed Burst is also an excellent way to make sure you capture that perfect instant in time when shooting any moving subject.

*Image resolution is 1984 x 1488 pixels when shooting in High-Speed Burst mode.

Super Slow Motion
The Super Slow Motion Movie mode* on the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS gives you a fun and useful option when shooting videos.

Let me start by saying I am a huge Canon fan boy. I brag about Canon like people brag about Apple or a Toyota Prius. I own two Canon DSLRs (5D and 40D) and several Canon point and shoots (including the S90 and SD800IS) and always recommend Canon to anyone buying a digital camera.

I bought this camera for my wife to upgrade her SD800IS and chose it because of the large screen, big zoom, and HD video capability (all great features). After four days of shooting, I returned it. Read on ...

The good.
Photos in bright light = 5 stars (normal great Canon photos like you would expect). The photos in brighter light were all fairly good and the screen is large and looks great.

Zoom = 5 stars. The camera zooms in/out REALLY fast which is great when you're trying to take pics of action shots or something that's moving fairly quickly. Loved having the big zoom.

The not so good.
Photos in low light (automatic mode) = 1 star. If the distance of your subject is more than about three feet, the camera would switch to shooting at 1/16th (bad) of a second and closer than three feet would shoot at 1/60th of a second (good). So when photographing my kids, that move frequently, many of the shots would blur because the shutter speed at 1/16th was just too slow. When I switched to program (manual) mode and put the flash to ON instead of to AUTO the camera switched back to 1/60 and the shots are fine but for an automatic user, this is awful when shooting subjects in the three to six feet range where the flash is still significant.

Screen = 2 stars. While the screen is very large, I think it's using a resistive display which is what the original touch smart phones used (now all using capacitive).

I have had this camer for about a week and so far, it has met or exceeded all of my expectations. I bought it as an upgrade from a Canon PowerShot A710 IS that I have had for years and which has served me very well. I bought the ELPH 510 HS primarily for the longer zoom and the more compact size. The extra megapixels were not a big factor for me. I have been experimenting with the camera and exploring the features and capabilities. I have read the reviews and the complaints about short battery life. The camera comes with a relatively low power battery (870mAh). I was able to burn through that in an afternoon of playing with the camera, taking and viewing shots, video, etc. and hardly turning off the power at all. I bought a pair of 1200mAh batteries for spares. They provide almost 50% more power which should translate to more photos and video between charges.

I am totally satisfied with the camera. It is not a full size digital SLR, which I also considered. But, I wanted a camera that I could keep with me that would give me more flexibility and better pictures than my smart phone. While I am certain the full size camera would provide even more capabilities, it wouldn't do me any good if it was inconvenient to carry along. This camera provides all of the essential, and many not so essential, features that I wanted. It takes great pictures in nearly all lighting conditions. The AUTO mode works pretty well for most shots. I did, however, find that using some of the other scene modes can make a difference, i.e. using Kids & Pets mode when shooting pictures of the grandkids seems to speed up the focus process and results in a better picture. The video is outstanding, especially for the compact size of the camera.

Color: Red Verified Purchase
First, let me say I purchased the Powershot 510 and the Powershot 310. The 510 is a much more solid camera and a lot less plastic than the 310. I think my two largest complaints and frustration comes with the touch screen and the 12 power zoom. The touch screen drains the battery faster than my other Canon Powershot cameras and the zoom is incredibly difficult to get stable when at full 12 power and my pictures haven't turned out as well as I would like at that distance. Overall, I really didn't like the Canon Powershot 310, so I am on the fence as to whether or not I will keep this one. I have a few more days to think about it. For now... here is a more detailed list of pros and cons:

- Takes incredibly good photos with regard to color.
- Easy to use.
- The vivid setting is great for flowers and fall colors.
- I love the fisheye effect without having to carry around my Canon DSLR camera and lenses. I also love having the wide angle.
- The miniature setting is kind of fun to use.
- Feels incredibly heavy and solid, unlike the new 310.
- Fits easily in my purse and pocket.

- Can't stand having finger prints all over the screen when I go to take my picture.
- Touch screen drains the battery pretty quickly over the other Canon Powershot cameras.
- When zooming out, it is very difficult to keep it steady.

Not sure what to order if I send this one back. So, I am still on the fence, as I am partial to Canon cameras over Nikons. The red color is not as it is shown in the picture. It is more of a rust/burgandy color of red... it has a bit more brown to it, but I actually like it.

UPDATE: 12/12/2011 - I ended up sending this one back and kept the Canon 310. I am really glad I did. I get a great battery life and when I compared the photos on this camera vs. the 510, the photos had better color and looked a lot more crisp from the 310. I am happy with my decision.
