Canon PowerShot SX510 HS Review
5 March 2014
Summary: A compact design, a long range of focal length, and Wi-Fi for quick sharing. The PowerShot SX510 HS is a great product by Canon and it proves to be a great performer in terms of producing quality pictures.
Pros: Compact design, Long range of focal length, Easy sharing via Wi-Fi
Cons: Average low light performance, Not the fastest focusing system
Summary: The PowerShot SX510 HS is Canon's newest additon to its SX series of super-zooms. In terms of physical size and zoom range it sits in the middle - it's not as compact as pocket models like the 20x SX280 HS, but is a lot more portable than the 50x SX50 HS. And although its 30x zoom range is also middling in this context, compared with most other models on the market, it really is a lot of zoom in a little body. Only Sony's 30x HX50V beats it on those terms.
Pros: 30x stabilised optical zoom., Excellent optical image stabilisation., Built-in Wifi and GPS linking., 1080p24 HD video.
Cons: Colour fringing at zoom extremes., Improved, but average continuous shooting., Indirect Wifi sharing to Twitter.
Conclusion: Even though the zoom range is the clear star of the show, what really shines about the Canon SX510 HS is its flexibility. Pictures are of generally good quality and although images get a little noisy at higher sensitivity settings, details are retained fairly well. The image stabilization system is very capable and we didn't experience any trouble getting shake-free pictures at low shutter speeds.
Conclusion: The 30x optical zoom gives you as great flexibility for a camera this size and, while it can't claim to be the smallest on the market any more - the Sony HX50V has stolen that title - it manages to provide the range without costing the earth. It also offers a range of flexibility that matches or exceeds that of the Sony contender at a lower price point.
Excerpt: Fazit: Die Canon PowerShot SX510 HS gefällt mit Test durch ihr flexibles 30fach-Zoom, dem kompakten Gehäuse sowie dem insgesamt guten Arbeitstempo. Die Bildqualität der Canon PowerShot SX510 HS kann dagegen nur bei Tageslicht überzeugen.
Pros: Griffiges und kompaktes Gehäuse, Vielseitiges Zoom, Zügiges Tempo
