Excerpt: All the claimed features of the camera and the easy setup and connection to the internet for posting pics on social networking sites work very easily and is convenient. The menu is straight forward and easy to use. It's small form factor makes it handy to just slip it into any pocket. Picture quality may not be overwhelming but you a pretty decent images. Day light shooting comes out good by default but the low light shots aren't that great.
Excerpt: Don't go for white colour. Good picture quality with excellent colour reproduction. 12X Zoom level and Shutter speed is too good for this small camera, but it's thickness is above the expectation, and heavy weight. Design is good looking, buttons are too small for comfortableness. MicroSD Card supported means you can mount your mobile phones memory card when you needed. Most frustrating thing is it's battery backup.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Cons: Complicated Controls, No Viewfinder, Short Battery Life
Summary: This is a great little cam. Great for social occassions, friends are always envious as theirs are heavy and bulky and mine is neat, small and looks great. Only downside is that the touch screen isn't that great, the pictures tend to come out brighter than they are in reality and pictures are often blurry if people are moving when the shot it taken.
Summary: The Ixus 510 HS offers great value for money, it takes clear vibrant photo's even when I do stupid things with it like shoot into the sun. Start up time is responsive, The zoom is good, battery life is good & it is tiny so it's easy to slip into a pocket & take with you anywhere & everywhere. The controls are very simple, so although it's tiny, it's not fiddly to use. The touch screen is perfectly adequate, it's not of iPhone standard but I wouldn't expect it to be.
