Canon PowerShot Elph 520 HS

PC Magazine
10 June 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.

  • Pros: The Canon PowerShot Elph 520 HS is a good-looking camera that's remarkably compact for its 12x zoom lens.
  • Cons: The 520 HS' button layout takes some adjusting to, its battery life is relatively short, and its photo and movie quality are disappointing given the camera's price tag.
