Canon PowerShot SX510 HS Bridge Camera, HD 1080p, 12.1MP, 30x Optical Zoom, Wi-Fi, 3” LCD Screen, Black

Product information

A portable mini bridge camera with 30x zoom, the PowerShot SX510 HS comes fully equipped with HS System, Wi-Fi and Full HD movies for capturing and sharing every occasion with ease.

Key benefits:

  • Get closer and capture the full detail of distant subjects with a huge 30x optical zoom, or up to 60x with ZoomPlus. Fit more in the frame with 24mm ultra-wide-angle for great group shots and stunning landscapes. The huge zoom fits neatly into a mini bridge style body that’s so small it’s easy to carry, wherever you go.

  • HS System excels in low light allowing you to capture the real atmosphere of the moment without flash or a tripod. A high performance DIGIC 4 processor and high-sensitivity 12.1 Megapixel CMOS image sensor give superior image quality in all situations.

  • An optical Image Stabiliser with Intelligent IS automatically combats camera shake to prevent blur giving sharp, detailed photos and videos at full zoom or when shooting handheld in low light.

  • Wi-Fi lets you connect easily with home wireless networks, compatible printers and PCs, plus portable devices like smartphones and tablets, for fast, online image sharing and backup. Use your smartphone’s GPS to tag images with shooting locations over Wi-Fi.

  • Easily record Full HD movies (1080p) with stereo sound and optical zoom, with one touch of the Movie Record button. Enhanced Dynamic IS powerfully compensates for movement in movies for smooth results when shooting on the move.

  • Effortlessly shoot great photos or movies with Smart Auto, which detects the scene and selects optimal settings from 32 variables (21 in movies). All you have to do is point and shoot.

Excellent camera This SX510 camera was highly reviewed elsewhere which led me to try and then purchase it. The controls are well positioned and easy to use, it is compact in size but packs plenty of zoom focus and has ample megapixel capacity for my requirements as a humble weekend and social snapper. For a compact camera, it is very easy to grip securely and I preferred its size to that of its big brother, the Canon Powershot SX50 which although a briliant camera, was too bulky for my requirements when I'm out with my family when space and ease of access are of prime importance (after my family - natch). It's easy to get too wrapped up in all the available reviews which can leave a buyer completely bamboozled. The John Lewis staff helped me narrow down my choice and I knew when I handled the SX510 that I had found my camera - it felt right for me and ticked all the boxes. Most importantly of all, I'm very pleased with my photos and the the pleasure they bring to my family and friends. At this price, for the ease of use and with these results, I highly recommend this camera. 28 May 2014
Pretty camera... This is a pretty looking camera, but the hype about what it can do is exaggerated. It claims to be WiFi and compatible with Apple iOS mobile and OS 10.9.2 Mac computers. Wrong; it is impossible to connect this camera to any device via WiFi, and they don't even supply a cable for connecting. So if your hoping to send images via WiFi, then this is not the camera for you... 06 May 2014
