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...

If you are prepared to pay a bit more for extra quality then the Canon IXUS 510 HS is likely to be of interest to you. For a pocket camera picture quality is very good. Add in the impressive set of features including a touch screen and Wi-Fi and you...

Canon IXUS 510HS review

 

The Canon IXUS 510HS is the latest stylish compact from Canon, and it arrives with a host of advanced features and a full specification. How does it fare when put to the WDC test?

Striking design, good image quality, strong spec

High price tag, poor touchscreen

The IXUS 510HS continues the IXUS range's tradition for well-designed compacts and is impressive to look at. However in use there are several issues, the biggest - and no doubt the most troubling - being the model's 3.2in touchscreen functionality. If...

Canon IXUS 510 HS WiFi Compact Camera Review

 

Joshua Waller reviews the ultra compact Canon IXUS 510 HS, with a 12x optical zoom lens, 3.2 inch touch screen and built in Wi-Fi.

Ultra compact with 12x optical zoom; Impressive macro mode; Full HD video with stereo sound; Good colour reproduction; Wi-Fi to iPhone works well

Quite expensive

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 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.

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...
