Product Details

Canon PowerShot ELPH 510 HS Silver Digital Camera, Model ELPH510HSSIL

Are you looking for a compact digital camera that exudes style and class yet doesn't compromise on performance? Then the ultra-slim PowerShot ELPH 510 HS is for you. Its fashionable, sleek design belies surprising sophistication in technology and shooting power packed inside. Tucked away is a powerful 12x Optical Zoom that gives you an extraordinary range of focal lengths for shooting near to far. 12.1 Megapixels deliver images with amazing detail, making possible large, crisp prints. What you shoot will look great thanks to the Canon HS SYSTEM, which helps ensure bright, clear images even in low light. The PowerShot ELPH 510 HS has an advanced 3.2-inch Touch Panel LCD, which adds a modern intuitive interface, making shooting and viewing stills and 1080p Full HD videos easier and more fun. What's more, this amazing camera is available in three chic colors: Red, Black and Silver.

Features:

  • Beautiful and Astonishingly Thin
    At a slim 0.86 inches, the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS is the world's thinnest camera with a 28mm Wide-Angle lens, 12x Optical Zoom, and Optical Image Stabilizer.* Its stylish form is enhanced by its lustrous finish, which gives you a choice of three refined colors: Red, Black and Silver. But real beauty goes beyond skin deep with the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS. Amazingly, Canon did not sacrifice performance for style
  • 12x Optical Zoom with 28mm Wide-Angle Lens
    The PowerShot ELPH 510 HS features a powerful Genuine Canon 12x Zoom Lens that delivers outstanding optical performance and versatility. Fitting such a high-performance lens with such wide zoom range into a camera so thin would normally be considered an impossible feat. Canon's expert optical engineering met the challenge by developing a light-folding retractable-prism lens barrel, which achieves outstanding compactness with high zoom power and superb performance. The zoom starts at 28mm wide-angle and extends to 336mm telephoto (35mm equivalent), covering an exceptionally wide range. The telephoto reach gives you the freedom to capture subjects from a considerable distance, while the 28mm wide-angle makes it easy to shoot sweeping landscapes, large groups of people and tall buildings
  • Optical Image Stabilizer
    Handheld shooting can often lead to camera shake, making photos and videos blurry. Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer is a sophisticated system that uses lens-shift technology to correct for unwanted camera movement. It makes handheld photography more practical, providing excellent image quality in many difficult shooting situations: outdoors at dusk, inside without a flash, and even at the telephoto end of the zoom range without a tripod. For photos, it enables shooting at slower shutter speeds, accommodating more low-light shooting situations than ever before without having to boost ISO sensitivity. With camera shake and vibration reduced, you get a sharper, steadier image. And because it is an optical system, there is none of the image degradation typical with electronic image stabilizers
  • Canon HS SYSTEM
    The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you take bright, clear photos in an even wider range of shooting situations. Beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The system is the result of two technologies brought together in PowerShot cameras: a high-sensitivity imaging sensor, which is able to capture more light; and the DIGIC Image Processor, which actively reduces noise with high-speed image processing. The 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor in the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS incorporates advanced light reception technology that enhances sensitivity. The DIGIC 4 Image Processor provides a major boost in noise reduction, expanding the usable ISO range to an amazing high of 3200. The Canon HS SYSTEM takes the frustration out of low-light shooting, delivering clear, blur-free images
  • Canon DIGIC 4 Image Processor
    Canon DIGIC Image Processors have set the standard for functionality and performance since their groundbreaking introduction in 1999. With each successive generation, DIGIC processors have brought elevated performance and powerful new features to PowerShot digital cameras. The DIGIC 4 processor has ushered in a new level of picture quality and accelerated processing, making possible features such as high-speed continuous shooting, Full HD video and Face Detection Self-timer. New, more powerful noise reduction algorithms also provide improved low-light capture
  • Canon Full HD Video Advantage
    In addition to the Canon HS SYSTEM, the combination of the advanced CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 Image Processor in the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS makes it possible to shoot crisp, clear high definition video. Imagine the fun and excitement of being able to shoot spectacular 1080p Full HD video with stereo sound that you can later watch on your HDTV or download to your computer to share with family and friends. In addition to being able to shoot Full HD 1080p video at 24* frames per second, the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS can also shoot 720p HD video at 30** frames per second
  • Dedicated Movie Button, Wind filter feature and Optical Zoom for easy video capture
    It's never been easier to shoot videos with a PowerShot digital camera. The PowerShot ELPH 510 HS has a dedicated movie button that lets you start and stop recording instantly. There is no need to go through layers of menus or operate switches or dials to switch to and from video recording mode. The camera is always ready to shoot stills or video whenever you want. The PowerShot ELPH 510 HS also incorporates an electronic wind filter, which suppresses wind noise that can muffle or distort the sound. And unlike less sophisticated point-and-shoot cameras, the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS lets you use the full range of optical zoom when you're shooting a video
  • HDTV playback via HDMI output and CEC
    It's easy to enjoy and share the videos you shoot with the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS. Simply connect its HDMI terminal to your HDTV using an HDMI cable. And because the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS supports HDMI-CEC technology, you'll be able to control the playback of your images and videos on any CEC-enabled HDTV using the TV's remote control. (CEC - Consumer Electronic Control - is part of the HDMI specification, enabling components in a system to communicate with one another.)
  • iFrame
    With the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS, you can also shoot video in the Apple iFrame format, which is a computer-friendly standard that speeds up importing and editing of videos. It keeps file sizes small, making it more convenient to upload or e-mail high-quality videos. The iFrame format enjoys native support in compatible Mac and Windows video applications, making it unnecessary to perform time-consuming and often quality-degrading conversions
  • PureColor LCD System
    The PowerShot ELPH 510 HS digital camera's large and bright 3.2-inch PureColor LCD wide screen makes it easy to view and frame your shots in high resolution (461,000 dots). PureColor technology delivers excellent contrast with rich, true-to-life color. Moreover, you can view the LCD screen over a surprisingly wide angle - above, below or to either side - without color shifts and with minimal reflections. A scratch-proof hard coating and a dust-repellent fluorine coating ensure a durable screen that dependably displays clear, vibrant images. The wide aspect ratio (16:9) provides ample room for information icons and touch buttons, preventing them from getting in the way of the image, and you can enjoy a brilliant full-screen image when shooting or playing back your Full HD videos
  • Touch Panel LCD with Touch Shutter
    The PowerShot ELPH 510 HS features touch panel technology that makes using the camera more intuitive and fun. Simply touch the screen to choose and track an AF point, change camera settings, record and play videos and much, much more! It also has an innovative Touch Shutter function that allows you to release the shutter right from the screen. Just touch the desired subject with your finger. An AF box will appear and track the subject as it moves. Then just lift your finger to release the shutter. It's that simple
  • High-Speed Burst Mode
    Capture amazing action shots like the pros with the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS camera. Using High-Speed Burst mode, you can shoot at exceptionally high speeds - 7.8 frames per second. It's a great feature for those who enjoy taking pictures at sporting events. High-Speed Burst is also an excellent way to make sure you capture that perfect instant in time when shooting any moving subject
  • Super Slow Motion
    The Super Slow Motion Movie mode on the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS gives you a fun and useful option when shooting videos. It records video clips at a very high speed - up to approximately 240 frames per second. When the clips are played at normal speed (30 fps), the action is dramatically slower. This video shooting mode can be used to capture memorable plays at sporting events or to analyze and study motion
  • Intelligent IS
    The latest advance in Canon Optical Image Stabilization technology, Intelligent IS analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation. For stills, the system automatically selects among Normal, Panning, Macro (Hybrid) and Tripod IS modes. When shooting video, the system automatically selects among Dynamic, Powered, Macro and Tripod IS modes. With Intelligent IS, you can concentrate on image capture, letting the camera make the most effective IS settings to assure the steadiest possible image
  • Smart AUTO
    Photographers of all levels appreciate a camera - especially a go-anywhere compact digital - that takes the hassle out of capturing beautiful images. The PowerShot ELPH 510 HS gives you Smart AUTO - sophisticated Canon technology that makes getting that great shot as simple as pressing the shutter button. Smart AUTO automatically detects scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and the subject. Detected scenes are analyzed using 32 predefined shooting situations. The camera then makes optimal settings to ensure the best possible image capture, whether you're shooting stills or video. Smart AUTO also includes Advanced Subject Detection, which allows the camera to detect and track non-human moving subjects like animals and vehicles. With Smart AUTO, all you have to do is frame your shot and capture away
  • Movie Digest
    Creating a video containing highlights of a family vacation or an important occasion is a lot easier than you might think. When you use Movie Digest on the PowerShot ELPH 510 HS, the camera will automatically record a short video clip (up to approximately 4 seconds) every time you shoot a still image. That entire day's worth of clips will then be automatically combined into a single video. Movie Digest does all the work, so you can sit back and enjoy your video
  • Face Detection Technology including Smart Shutter
    Face Detection technology makes it easy for you to take great photos of people. The camera will automatically detect the face(s) in a frame to give it optimal focus, exposure, flash (if needed) and white balance. Smart Shutter adds fun and convenience to Face Detection because you can set the camera to release the shutter when someone winks, smiles or even enters the frame
  • Special Scene Modes
    Special Scene Modes have fun and creative filters you can add to your photos without having to use a computer. You can make a quirky portrait using a Fisheye Lens Effect or add a beautiful single-tone effect with Monochrome. Toy Camera Effect simulates a vintage look as if capturing the photo using a "toy" or pinhole camera
  • Best Image Selection
    Best Image Selection is an easy way to get great results almost every time you take a picture. When you press the shutter release, the camera will rapidly shoot a series of five images, then assess the images for any unwanted facial movements and camera shake. Out of the five images, the camera will select and save the best one
  • Available in 27 Languages
    With the new addition of Hindi, there are a total of 27 display languages from which you can choose: English, German, French, Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Italian, Norwegian, Swedish, Spanish, Simplified/Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Portuguese, Korean, Greek, Polish, Czech, Hungarian, Turkish, Thai, Arabic, Romanian, Ukrainian, Farsi and Hindi

    Comments about Canon PowerShot ELPH 510 HS Silver Digital Camera:

    I have purchased this camera twice. The first time I wanted a compact point and shoot to use when I didn't want to carry my dslr. I was able to take great pictures on vacation (well until the extremely short battery ran out and I did not have a backup yet). Then, I dropped it in the sand and got sand in the lens. I decided to buy a new one, and I have had a horrible time with it. At almost every setting, bright, regular, and low light settings, my pictures have come out completely overexposed. I have changed settings, got the pictures to turn out for a couple of shots only to have the next ones become overexposed. It has been completely frustrating. Planning to send it back and reconsider what to do next.

    disappointing

    By bobcat

    from Rawlins, WY

    Comments about Canon PowerShot ELPH 510 HS Silver Digital Camera:

    takes good video, average quality photos - but the control which zooms (which was why I purchased it) sticks and in spite of sending it in for repair to fix the problem, the problem continues. This makes the advantage of having a 300 mm zoom in such a tiny body often unusable until the photo moment is long past. Sad about that

      Comments about Canon PowerShot ELPH 510 HS Silver Digital Camera:

      This is my 4th Canon camera in 5 years. However, ever since introduction of the CMOS sensors in the Elph series, the quality of still shots has awfully declined. In a thorough side-by-side test of this 12MP camera and a 5MP camera from a very popular smartphone, the 510HS produced pictures with the same level of detail as the smartphone, which was very disappointing. In other words, it appears that my non CMOS 5 year old Canon SD800 is capable of taking more detailed shots at 7MP. That is why I have set the camera to shoot at half resolution and I am getting the same results. The battery life is also VERY VERY short with this camera. 20 minutes of continuous recording will run your battery completely dry. If you are taking pictures alone without flash, the battery will last you less than 3 hours. I have run out of battery at almost every event I have been to. Canon did a great job with the lens and the construction, as well as the software, but the image sensor and battery don't seem to hold up to the rest of the design. This is perhaps my last point-and-shoot from Canon.
