The Cannon Tradition
I love the look and feel but mostly the advanced and superior photography technology and functionality. The PowerShot SX510HS is compact, easy to operate, fun and a great recorder of my photo-genius self. Did mention the sharp auto focus feature makes for no bad shots, just wrong subjects in the wrong light.

Let's keep this simple: The SX510 HS is a cool, point-and-shoot camera. Just be sure to be very calm and in a happy place when you read the manual to figure out how it all works or you're going to break the cam as you slam it on the floor in frustration. Oh...be sure to have the phone number handy of a good tech geek friend. The greatest frustration I had was with the Wi-fi feature, which is the feature I wanted most in a camera. Good luck in connecting to the Internet or other devices easily! The Canon website is not the most user-friendly either. Patience, grasshoppers! Can't say it's worth it, but you can finally actually muddle your way through the website and setting up the camera. The Wi-fi feature is NOT easy to use; the camera buttons are NOT clearly marked as they are referred to in the manual; the manual is NOT easy to follow (i.e. instructions on page xx refers you to page xxx before you can proceed with instructions on page xx). If you're new to this level of camera technology, consider taking anti-anxiety medication before learning to use it...or dump the whole devices inter-connectability idea. It was a special gift so I'm reluctant to return it.

I love this camera! It is great for everything I need in a camera. From the vibrant, impressive image quality to the bright LCD display, everything about this camera is perfection. I love the full HD recording and the built in HDMI output. It's great for recording movies and home videos. The 12.1 megapixel images look great, with large and vibrant quality. The images I capture look absolutely stunning. Overall, I think this is an amazing camera, and there is nothing bad about it.

I bought this to replace an old lower MP camera and specifically to take on a trip. I wanted a camera that would allow me to shoot a variety of subjects without having to change lenses and cart around a bunch of equipment. The zoom on this camera cannot be beat. Absolutely fabulous....and the picture quality with the zoom at max is awesome. We have a fancy-smancy DSL camera also but I suspect this one will be used much more. Great value for the features. My only slight negative is that it is a little small in my hands. Good size for sticking in a purse, but a little difficult for me to get a good grip. Overall very pleased with the purchase.
