Problems within three hours

  • Conclusion: I have had this camera long enough to charge the battery and try to set it up. I keep getting a lens error and the FAQ says I need to contact the company for repair. If this is a known problem why are they selling these cameras?
  • Cons: lens error

Not the greatest

  • Summary: It's basically a regular camera. Nothing fancy, pics are nice but I wasn't wowed. For the price I should've just bought a regular camera.

  • Summary: I received this item however had the following exceptions: 1. The box reached me opened 2. the Bag was not included 3. The Memory card was also not included 4. It didn't even have my name tag included. 5. I had to present photo's of the same item to the courier just for it to be identified. Otherwise the camera is working perfectly. This has disappointed me a bit.

Soft images

KRB, Amazon

  • Summary: I have an iPhone 5s. I love the photos that I take with my phone. However I also wanted the ability to take cameras with an optical zoom. After reading all of the reviews I selected this camera expecting to get at least as high of quality as my 5S. No such luck. I took side by side photos without the zoom. The Canon photos were of amazingly poor quality compared to the 5S. I was actually shocked by the difference.

Disappointed...

M.N. "maddie", Amazon

  • Summary: I was so anxious to receive this camera, only to be completely disappointed. I have a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, and I took pictures side by side and compared the two. The Canon PowerShot SX260 HS took much better photos. The SX 510 had too much noise. Even in the lower ISO setting. Maybe i didn't set it up right, i don't know. All i know is that my Canon PowerShot SX260 HS was alot better, and I've never had to do anything to it but just "Point and Shoot".

New camera in for repair to Canon after only two months

ShooFly Pie, Amazon
1 March 2014
  • Summary: I was so excited to buy this camera since I've always been a fan of Canon products. I am not a professional photographer but do use a camera weekly for various projects around the house and also on vacations. Everything worked fine until one day, two months into my ownership, the camera would no longer download pictures to my computer. I contacted Canon and they had me send it to them for repair.

  • Summary: The liquid lense cleaner leaked- more than half the bottle emptied. Luckily the camera was not damaged. Only the other items in the plastic bag got soaked.

poor operating functions

jsgirdwood, Canon

  • Conclusion: The quality of the camera is overall not bad for the price, but the option to upload the photos via wifi is at best not user friendly, and at worse, a complete waste of time.
  • Cons: Short battery life, Complicated controls/menu

Disappointed with Quality of Images

FX Wagner Jr., Amazon
29 December 2013
  • Summary: I was expecting razor-sharp images of the Canon Powershot SX510 HS. I was disappointed; my cell phone takes clearer pictures. If you're not overly picky in this area; it's actually a neat camera. Lots of features, WiFi, rechargeable battery etc. But the bottom line: I was expecting amazing pictures and I did not get them. I tinkered with many settings, over and over. The camera did a decent job on some outdoor, zoomed in pix.
