Summary: VERY disappointed that there was no card! I purchased this to use for Christmas, and was unable to because it did not come with a media card; I had to order that separate, which took another several days. It should have noted that the card needed to be purchased separately in the description.
Summary: I find the software overly complicated and unless I use it very frequently have to go back to the manual for a review. The zoom is quite adequate and the photos excellent. The touch screen is not difficult to use. The reason I bought it is for it's size, weight, price and telephoto lens.
Summary: I may return it. It doesn't have an eyepiece, which is my preferred to see my photo subjects. (The screen, in high light, reflects and makes seeing the subjects difficult.) Also, I am speculating that the specialty battery may be difficult or expensive to replace.
Summary: I bought this camera to take on a long awaited trip to New Zealand. Less than two months later the shutter was not fully opening, so the upper left and lower right side of nearly all the pictures I took in New Zealand had to be cropped.
Summary: The camera has some nice features and takes good photos. The zoom is superior to many similar cameras. Battery life however makes this camera not very functional. A day out with the family leaves you wondering if the battery will last. Much worse than last Canon camera that I owned.
Good P&S, but doesn't quite measure up to the Lumix GF3

Summary: This fall, I set out to replace a beloved three-year old Lumix point and shoot. I decided to try the ELPH 510 because it has high end specs and was an especially good deal on Amazon. I also purchased a Lumix GF3, a micro four thirds camera.
Summary: I am an admitted Canonphile. I have a lot of Canon cameras. I bought this one recently when it was offered as a lightning deal. As with most Canon products, this camera takes good photos. Colors are vibrant and true. I don't see abarations or other annoying flaws.
