Canon PowerShot SX510 HS

 

The Wi-Fi-equipped Canon PowerShot SX510 HS is a perfectly capable long zoom camera with an affordable sticker price. Images are generally sharp, but show some noise.

Compact. Sharp 30x zoom lens. Good control layout. Integrated Wi-Fi. Minimal shutter lag. Full manual mode available. Framing assist function.

Burst rate could be faster. Images on the noisy side. 1080p video limited to 24fps.

Performance and Conclusions The SX510 HS starts and captures a photo in about 1.6 seconds. It focuses and fires a shot (at its widest angle) in just 0.1-second, and it captures a photo every 0.9-second in continuous drive mode. Like most long zoom...

Canon's PowerShot SX510 HS improves on predecessor

 

A change in sensor brings this 30x zoom camera's photo and movie quality as well as its shooting performance up a notch.

The ; is a very good value thanks to a new sensor, offering up excellent image quality and performance for its budget-friendly price. It also has built-in Wi-Fi for easier on-the-go sharing, among other things.

Despite the updated sensor, the SX510 HS' shooting performance might still be too slow for action shots, especially indoors. With no viewfinder, you have to use the LCD for framing all your shots.

A change in sensor brings the 30x zoom Canon PowerShot SX510 HS' photo and movie quality as well as its shooting performance up a notch.

The response from readers on Photography Blog about the SX500 IS was a mixed bag of people loving the variety of tech and those not liking the image quality. The latter point is a valid one and it looks as though Canon were paying attention to what...

Canon PowerShot SX510 HS Review

 

A compact design, a long range of focal length, and Wi-Fi for quick sharing. The PowerShot SX510 HS is a great product by Canon and it proves to be a great performer in terms of producing quality pictures.

Canon PowerShot SX510 HS

 

The Canon PowerShot SX510 HS is a 12 Megapixel super zoom camera with 30x stabilised optical range and a 3 inch LCD screen. Launched in August 2013 it replaces the one year old PowerShot SX500 IS which is retained in the PowerShot lineup. The SX510 HS...

30x stabilised optical zoom ; Excellent optical image stabilisation ; Built-in Wifi and GPS linking ; 1080p24 HD video

Colour fringing at zoom extremes ; Improved, but average continuous shooting ; Indirect Wifi sharing to Twitter

The PowerShot SX510 HS is a solid upgrade to what was already a very popular model. The new CMOS sensor brings it into line with the other models in the SX range (the older SX500 IS is now the only model apart from the budget A series to use a CCD...

Canon PowerShot SX510 HS review

 

A compact bridge camera with 30x optical zoom and full manual control

30x optical zoom ; Built in Wi-Fi ; Full manual control

No raw shooting ; Can't set AF point ; No touchscreen

Even though the zoom range is the clear star of the show, what really shines about the Canon SX510 HS is its flexibility. Pictures are of good quality and although images get a little noisy at higher sensitivity settings, details are retained fairly well.

Canon PowerShot SX510 HS

 

The SX510 HS is a decent superzoom camera targeted towards the budget market.

Lightweight and compact, despite housing 30x zoom ; Wi-Fi is built-in to the camera

JPEG-only capture ; Low-resolution screen is hard to see in direct sunlight

The SX510 HS is a decent superzoom camera targeted towards the budget market. As long as you don't expect the same experience as a more expensive camera, or exemplary performance from handheld night photography, it's a fair buy. Unfortunately, Canon...
