  • Summary: Canon has always had specific market segments for its cameras. Its Rebel line of DSLR cameras is aimed at beginning and intermediate photographers. The company also has several high-end DSLR cameras aimed at professionals. Then there are models, usually costing less than $200. These cameras typically have very limited features and performance levels.

Canon PowerShot Elph 520 HS

PC Magazine
16 November 2012
  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot Elph 520 HS packs a 12x zoom lens into a very compact body that's sure to turn heads. But this pretty camera is hampered by a tiny sensor that produces noisy images at middle to high ISO settings.
  • Pros: Very slim and compact. Stylish. Nice zoom range. Snappy responsiveness.
  • Cons: Tiny image sensor. Poor low-light performance. Slightly soft lens. Uses microSD memory.

  • Cons: Extremely Weak flash, Uses microSD cards, Poor Battery Life, Luminous noise present through ISO range, causes graininess or speckling when viewing images at 100%, Tiny rear controls are cumbersome; specifically the 4-way controller buttons

Canon PowerShot ELPH 520 HS Review

21 March 2012
  • Conclusion: The Elph 520 HS is a hard sell. Looking at only the specifications, you might not see enough of an upgrade here to justify the purchase. But once it’s actually in your hands, you can see where it proves its worth. The button navigation gets rid of the touchscreen interface (overrated, in my opinion) and makes handling more in your control.
  • Pros: High-speed burst mode, Good-looking and super portable, Quality photos and videos, Easy to use
  • Cons: Poor battery life, MicroSD only, Average low light performance at best

  • Conclusion: Esta cámara es ideal para quienes quieren una buena calidad de fotos y videos en sus viajes o en el día a día. La vas a poder llevar a todos lados y disfrutar de su lente con zoom de 12X para capturar cualquier objeto o persona. Su salida mini HDMI es ideal para poder ver las fotos con todos tus amigos o familiares.
  • Pros: Tiene calidad Full HD en fotos y videos. El lente ofrece un zoom de 12X, muy bueno para una cámara digital de este tamaño. Es compacta y tiene un diseño llamativo.
  • Cons: No tiene memoria interna, sólo podrás usarla con una tarjeta microSD. Los botones no tienen mucho orden y controlar los menús se vuelve confuso.

  • Cons: Como a maioria das supercompactas, a Canon ELPH 520 HS não possui visor ocular, Flash de curta alcance especialmente ao aplicar o zoom: 1,5 metro, Vídeos em Full HD são gravados com 24 fps em vez dos 30 fps que garantem melhor qualidade, Tempo máximo de gravação por vídeo HD e Full HD: 10 minutos.
