Canon has cashed in big time with the introduction of the IXUS series cameras. Following the latest trend, Canon has brought out the IXUS 510 HS camera. Here is a review on the IXUS 510 HS camera:


First off, the Canon IXUS 510 HS carries a 10.1-megapixel high-sensitivity sensor that comes coupled with a Digic 5 Image Processor. This is the same processor that is found on Canon’s high-end cameras. The camera, considering its size carries an impressive 12x zoom. That's equivalent to 28-336mm in a 35mm camera at f/3.4 to f/5.6. The Zoom Plus feature extends this to 21x with pretty impressive results. This is one of the few cameras with which I'd be happy using non-optical magnification. The images carry 3648 x 2736 pixels resolution that can re recorded to to a microSD, microSDHC or microSDXC card. Sensitivity on this camera runs through the range from ISO 100 to ISO 3,200, with compensation of +/-2EV in 1/3EV steps.

That's pretty much par for the course, as are the shutter speeds, which range from 1/4,000 to 15 seconds. The shooting modes on this camera are plentiful and versatile. There is an Auto icon at the top left corner of the screen of this camera that holds the menu of other options, including program, portrait, smooth skin, high-speed burst, handheld night scene, low light and fish-eye effect, just to name a few. The 510 HS also offers full HD video recording at 1080p (24 frames per second), with the addition of iFrame, super-slow motion or miniature effect. The 510 HS is a mobile friendly camera too. This enables users to share photos and videos across various devices like phones and tablets. Upon downloading the Canon Camera window app that is available across all the app stores, the phone and camera can be synced. There is a dedicated Wi-Fi button in this camera that helps setting up a connection to the desired device simple and easy.

Design and Display:

The IXUS 510 HS happens to be an exceptionally well-built camera. The metal casing on this camera feels great. There's solidness to the casing that only IXUS cameras have. There is a metal tripod bush on the bottom plate of this camera. But, for the HDMI/USB port rubber for an unknown reason covers cover. The boxy design of this camera somehow magically hides a 12x optical zoom, which retracts fully into the body. There's also a 3.2-inch touch screen that takes up the entire back panel. Unfortunately, it uses resistive rather than capacitive technology, so it requires more of a hard press than the other Canon models. Because of the long zoom and big touch screen, everything else on the 510 HS has to be shrunk down quite a bit. This includes the battery, which is an almost AA-sized rechargeable lithium-ion model slotting in the base, as well as a microSD/HD/XC card

Bottom Line:

With the integration of some of the finest features, Canon has proven its credibility once again with the IXUS 510 HS. The camera is suited best for any user with a passion for photography.
