Canon ELPH 510 HS (IXUS 1100 HS)

 

The Canon 510 HS (IXUS 1100 HS in Europe) is a small, stylish point-and-shoot camera that's packed with technology. Core features include a 12x optical zoom lens with an effective focal range of 28mm-336mm, a backlit CMOS sensor with a maximum output...

The Canon ELPH 510 HS (IXUS 1100 HS) is a slim, stylish compact with a lot to offer both in terms of features and image quality. Our only real concerns relate to chromatic aberrations, which can be a problem around high-contrast scene elements, and its...

Canon PowerShot Elph 510 HS review

 

The Canon PowerShot Elph 510 HS updates Canon's SD4500 IS, bumping up the resolution of its backside-illuminated CMOS sensor to 12 megapixels; changing from a narrow lens with a 10x zoom to a 28mm wide-angle lens with a 12x zoom; switching from a...

The Canon PowerShot Elph 510 HS is an attractive, easy-to-use snapshot camera with a nice wide, long lens, and plenty of shooting options, all in an ultracompact body.

The 510 HS's battery can be very short depending on the features you use and its shooting performance is a little behind that of competing models.

The Canon PowerShot Elph 510 HS hits on design, features, and photo and video quality, but is slightly off target on shooting performance.

Canon PowerShot Elph 510 HS

 

The Canon PowerShot Elph 510 HS is a very good choice if you want a lot of zoom from a small camera body, and you prefer a touch screen to physical controls. But poor low-light performance and a slow start-up time hold this compact superzoom back.

High-res touch-screen LCD. Sharp lens. Solid build quality. Good HD video quality.

Poor high ISO performance. Slow start up.

Performance and Conclusions The Elph 510 HS is a little sluggish, taking a full 3 seconds to start up and take a photo, nearly twice as long as Nikon S9100’s 1.6-second start up time. It does a much better job with recycle time and burst shooting,...

Canon IXUS 1100 HS Review

 

The IXUS line of Canon digital compact cameras has been synonymous with excellent optics and build quality since the days of APS film when the first one appeared. Now, IXUS is regarded as the luxury brand of Canon's digital compacts. Priced higher than...

We were excited to receive the Canon IXUS 1100 HS digital compact camera as the specification looks impressive, and actually holding the camera in front of us we were inclined to agree. It meets all your expectations in terms of looks, start-up times,...

Canon PowerShot ELPH 510 HS

 

Slick and slim, yet with a long zoom, the Canon ELPH 510 HS packs a ton offeatures into a compact camera body behind an occasionally frustratingtouchscreen interface.

Slim and stylish camera body; Extremely versatile 12x lens; Gorgeous 3.2-inch screen; Good image quality overall

Not everyone will like the touchscreen; Glossy camera body attracts smudges; Below-average battery life

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 510 HS has a lot to live up to, but it also has a lot going for it. For starters, there's its slim, stylish, and highly portable design, which makes the Canon 510 a great camera to stash in a bag or your pocket when you want to...

Canon Powershot ELPH 510 HS Review

 

Conclusion Smartphones with ever better on-board cameras are ruthlessly encroaching on the point and shoot camera's territory, which goes a long way toward explaining why lots of digital cameras now come equipped with touchscreen LCD's and other...

12x zoom, Pocketable, Relatively inexpensive, Very good to excellent image quality

Below average battery life, Imprecise touchscreen controls

Canon PowerShot ELPH 510 HS

 

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...

Canon IXUS 1100 HS - A Sturdy Snap Shooter

 

Looking for a premium point-and-shoot camera? The 12.1-megapixel Canon IXUS 1100HS with 12x optical zoom and wide-angle 28mm lens seems to fit the bill from our assessment. It even comes with a 3.2-inch touchscreen interface, but does it interfere with...

Sturdy and well-constructed body ; Fast and accurate AF system ; Vivid and accurate color production ; Good noise performance

Touchscreen takes time to get used to ; Slightly pricey but justifiable

The Canon IXUS 1100 HS is a delightful all-round point and shoot, right from its sturdy and well-constructed exterior to its innards. We wouldn't quite call it affordable (suggested retail price of S$529) but its 12x optical zoom, good color...

Canon ELPH 510 HS

 

Canon's latest travel zoom is attractive on the outside. Inside… less so.

Rock solid construction; Stylish exterior

Cumbersome touchscreen interface; Noisy shots

What a disappointment. Here we’ve got a corner of the market that isn’t yet crowded to capacity, an area currently led by Casio which–and no offense to Casio here–is no Canon, and the arrival of a brand new, expensive contender with an exciting spec...
