Digital Camera Review
9 October 2013
  • Summary: The 12×12 (12x zoom & 12 megapixels) Canon Powershot ELPH 510 HS delivers more than adequate resolution and an impressive zoom range in a truly pocketable compact point and shoot digital camera with a capacitive touchscreen that replaces all but the most essential physical controls with virtual...
  • Pros: 12x zoom, Pocketable, Relatively inexpensive, Very good to excellent image quality

Canon PowerShot Elph 510 HS

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot Elph 510 HS is a very good choice if you want a lot of zoom from a small camera body, and you prefer a touch screen to physical controls. But poor low-light performance and a slow start-up time hold this compact superzoom back.
  • Pros: High-res touch-screen LCD. Sharp lens. Solid build quality. Good HD video quality.
  • Cons: Poor high ISO performance. Slow start up.

6 January 2012
  • Summary: The Canon ELPH 510 HS (IXUS 1100 HS) is a slim, stylish compact with a lot to offer both in terms of features and image quality. Our only real concerns relate to chromatic aberrations, which can be a problem around high-contrast scene elements, and its touch-screen interface, which isn't as...

Digitaltrends

  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot 510 HS is a solid 12MP camera with a very useful 12x zoom. Image quality is very good and the movies are more than satisfactory. Optical Image Stabilization is also a real plus.
  • Pros: Good quality stills/videos, Nicely implemented touchscreen UI, Compact package, large 12x zoom
  • Cons: Definitely for static subjects, Relatively slow AF response, Sub-par battery life (get a spare)

Camera Labs
1 November 2011
  • Summary: The Canon ELPH 510 HS / IXUS 1100 HS is Canon's top-of-the-line ELPH / IXUS. Announced in August 2011, it claims to be the world's slimmest compact with a 12x optical zoom; it's certainly the longest zoom range of any ELPH / IXUS model to date.
  • Pros: 12x zoom with intelligent optical stabiliser., Super-slim stylish compact design., 1080p24 movie mode., Creative filter effects.
  • Cons: Lens suffers from chromatic aberration., Average continuous shooting speed., Touch-screen can be unresponsive., Flash and mics easily obstructed.

Canon IXUS 1100HS

CNET
19 October 2011
  • Summary: A potentially great little camera is let down by a slightly unresponsive touchscreen and colour fringing on some images. It's also rather expensive at £350. That's a shame, as in all other respects the IXUS 1100HS is very impressive, reproducing realistic colours with the absolute minimum of noise.
  • Pros: Clean, sharp images; Great image colours; Good video compensation for changing light conditions.
  • Cons: Some colour fringing; Touchscreen tricky to use; Wind noise on movies.
