Canon PowerShot ELPH 510 HS / IXUS 1100 HS Review

 

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 slender, feature-packed ELPH 510 offers a versatile lens, nice feature set and effective image stabilization. Image quality is good for its class, and generally quite impressive considering the ambitious range of its 12X zoom.

Canon PowerShot ELPH 530 HS Preview

Canon IXUS 510 HS Review

 

The Canon IXUS brand goes from strength to strength with the release of the snazzy 510 HS (also known as the ELPH 530 HS). It's sharp exterior is complemented by the hardcore interior of a 12x optical zoom with a focal range of 28-336mm, modest 10...

The IXUS brand never fails the consumer in terms of looks, build quality and image quality. The IXUS range are the cameras that are meant to look good. They may offer relatively little in terms of new technology, so you're paying for the reliability of...

Canon PowerShot ELPH 530 HS

 

This classic-looking ELPH from Canon packs a ton of features into an ultra-compact camera body, but the WiFi connectivity and touchscreen that are supposed to set it apart are disappointing.

Slim and stylish camera body designed with Canon's classic "box-and-circle" look; highly portable, versatile 12x lens; gorgeous 3.2-inch screen

Built-in WiFi could be easier to use; not everyone will like the touchscreen; average image quality and below average battery life

The Canon PowerShot ELPH 530 HS certainly has its charms. Sporting Canon'sclassic "box-and-circle" design, this little rectangle camera looks and feelsdistinguished without being stodgy or dated. We tried out the all-white versionand liked how much it...

Canon ELPH 530 HS

 

Plenty of redeeming qualities, but the touchscreen and WiFi are not among them.

Solid overall image quality; Useful 12x zoom range

Awful touchscreen ruins the UI; WiFi barely functional

The Canon ELPH series is usually a safe bet for a cool, quality camera at a decent price, but the top end of the lineup has been pretty wonky over the past few years. Image quality is generally strong, and the lenses are either bright or packed with...

Canon PowerShot ELPH 530 HS

 

The 530 HS actually has a lower-resolution sensor than its spiritual predecessor, the 510 HS. This change is ostensibly to increase the camera's performance at high ISO, and it remains among the best on the market. The same 12x zoom and 3.2-inch...

Canon Ixus 510 HS review

 

The Canon Ixus 510 HS is a slinky compact that can includes Wi-Fi connectivity

Smooth ; quiet zoom ; Good build quality ; Lots of tech in tiny chassis

Uploading can be convoluted ; Battery life could be better ; Pricier than rivals

Canon IXUS 510 HS

 

There are dozens of compact cameras on the market to choose from. The Canon IXUS 510 HS sets out to grab your attention with its built-in Wi-Fi, touchscreen and 12x optical zoom. There are plenty of features here to gawp at, but at close to the £300...

Decent image quality, touchscreen useful for hands-on focusing, Wi-Fi will benefit some users

Expensive, chunky design, on/off and playback button placement, touchscreen won’t be to all tastes, touchscreen well behind current mobile phone standards, micro SD, poor battery life

The Canon IXUS 510 HS is a belter in the image quality department, but it’s the camera’s design and price that holds it back from better things.

Canon IXUS 510 HS review

 

Canon's 10.1MP, Wi-Fi-enabled attempt to wrestle with camera phones

Good looks ; Excellent image quality ; Wi-Fi a useful extra feature

Pricey ; Wi-Fi has limitations

Canon's IXUS range of compact cameras is treading a tricky line. If it starts to offer too many features it'll end up treading on the toes of Canon's PowerShot range. Too few features, though, and the camera phone - already taking chunks out of the...

Canon IXUS 510 HS

 

A camera for the social-media generation, the IXUS 510 HS delivers Wi-Fi connectivity, a 12x optical zoom and a touchscreen to make users feel right at home.

Easy to set up and transfer photos over Wi-Fi ; Excellent range of wireless transfer options ; Sleek design

Uses microSD cards ; Short battery life ; Some images can appear soft ; Resistive touchscreen limits swipe, pinch-zoom actions

Canon Australia no longer issues RRPs for its products, although we have seen the 510 HS available for AU$399 in a number of photographic retailers.
