Excerpt: I wanted a smaller camera to take with me when I travel to places where my DSLR + lenses would be difficult to manage. The SX510 HS will be perfect. It takes great quality photos and also allows for more shooting options and control than most 'point & shoot' cameras. Optical zoom is a plus. I do not plan to use the wifi download option so the frustrations other reviewers have mentioned were not a negative for me.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
