Overall Review

Canon PowerShot SX510 HS is a 12 megapixels super zoom camera launched recently by the Japan based multinational. An all-new addition to the ‘bridge’ series, this Canon PowerShot SX510 HS comes with a 30x stabilised optical range and a 3 inches LCD screen. The 12 megapixels sensor in the SX510 HS series comes with a new addition, a back-illuminated CMOS that provides better low-light performance. The latest launch also boasts of an inbuilt Wi-Fi support for direct upload of pictures to computers, phones, on net and anywhere you want. It gives a better shooting experience with improved continuous shooting at 3.8fps and better video with a 1080p along with Super Slow motion and Movie digest options. With a claim to be the super smallest amongst the available cameras, Canon PowerShot SX 510 HS has slim and sleek elegant body that measures just 104mm x 69.5mm x 80.2mm and weighs 316 grams. The camera has 4x zoom with TTL autofocus and face detection functionality. The camera also boasts of an intelligent image stabiliser to give blur free images. Running on a NB 6LH battery pack, it has a shooting capacity of 250 shots per charge.

Design and Build Quality

In view of the design, Canon PowerShot SX510 HS claims to be the world’s smallest in its class. It looks very similar to its predecessors from the outside apart from the shrink in size. The body has a bulky right side with a dominant flash hump. The grip has a curved design extending on to the sides thus providing a better hold. All controls are concentrated on the right side of the camera thus allowing you to use Canon PowerShot SX510 HS single handedly. Keeping with its size, the camera measures just 104mm x 69.5mm x 80.2mm and weighs 316 grams. The layout of the buttons has a power button on the top of the body. The mode dial and shutter release lie to the right with a centrally fixed 3 inches LCD screen. Four push points around the dial include ISO, flash, self-timer and MF/Macro. Quick and easy to use buttons for playback and exposure adjustment are above the dial while that for display and menu lie at the bottom. To the right of the thumb pad, you have the quick movie recording button.

Focus and Face Detection

Canon PowerShot SX510 HS as a 12 megapixels camera possesses a digital zoom of 4x with TTL autofocus. It also provides for adjusting the focus manually with a focal length of 4.3mm wide and a film equivalent of 24-720mm. The camera comes with a face detection mode that detects faces in your image for better focusing and image quality. The focusing range of Canon PowerShot SX510 HS ranges in normal mode from 5cm to infinity (W) and 1.4m to infinity (T).

Lens and Image Stabilization

Canon PowerShot SX510 HS has an intelligent image stabiliser along with an optically stable 30x zoom lens plus an additional 4x digital zoom. The range of 30x zoom starts with a super wide angle thus enabling you to get a magnificent panoramic image of any landscape. The maximum aperture is f 3.4 to 5.8. The lens comes with Canon’s intelligent image stabiliser optic stabilisation system that allows you to capture blur free images and discarding the need for an additional camera stand to be carried around. The intelligent IS has three positions- off, shoot only and continuous, and it uses scene detection to determine optimal stability.

Screen and Menus

The easy to use menu button is placed on the right side of the gear of Canon PowerShot SX510 HS. It allows quick access to adjust video and shooting specs. The camera has a variety of shooting modes like the traditional PASM modes along with Smart Auto and scene detection of up to 32 scenes including moving subjects, backlighting, sunsets and close ups. The camera comes with a DIGIC 4 processor and a creative filter that provides six effects - Fish-eye, Miniature, Toy camera, Monochrome, Super-vivid and Poster. There is the discrete mode, which makes the camera ‘quiet’ to allow you to shoot in quiet places easily.

The playback button above the dial allows you to have a quick review of all your shots and the Live View control gives an option to adjust exposure and white balance easily. For amateurs, there is the Auto option which itself sets the specifications to an optimum level. Canon PowerShot SX510 HS has a fixed 3 inches wide LCD screen with no touch and provides for a bright display even in dim light. There are menu options to edit your image in the camera itself and then to directly upload it anywhere you want with its inbuilt Wi-Fi support.


The camera uses a NB 6LH battery pack, which comes with a compact power adapter CS DC10. The camera has a USB and SD memory card slot for connecting to your computer. Canon PowerShot SX 510 HS also has a direct connection port to Canon SELPHY and PIXMA photo printers and PictBridge compatible printers. The battery has a shooting capacity of 250 shots with a playback time of approx 5 hours.

Video Mode

The camera shoots in a format of 1080 pixels at a rate of 24 frames per second and supports 24p shooting. Canon PowerShot SX 510 HS however, lacks an external mic jack and does not have a high-speed frame rate. It has TTL autofocus to keep your image focused even in motion. It supports all formats of shooting like 1080p, 480p and 720p.

Great Buy!
by Priya on 2014-03-21

Before reading the review, do remember that this is a Point and Shoot (advanced though it is) and not a DSLR. Some features comes exclusively with a DSLR. You cannot expect a P&S to go above and beyond its primary category. Also, the SX 510 is not even a high end bridge camera. So based on your specific needs and budget, you need to make a choice. (All that said, a lot of things in photography is ultimately about the photographer - and not about the camera.)

Now the review:

I have been waiting for a couple of days to get acquainted with the camera before writing a review. So far, I love this camera. I'm a food blogger and my primary purpose of using this camera is for food photography. (I'm well acquainted with working with limited capability cameras for this.) Though the camera is not designed for food photography, it's giving me extremely good photos. The zoom is great and can be worked to your advantage if you know how to go about it. Also, You most definitely have to make use of the manual controls the SX 510 offers. (Why go for an advanced P&S otherwise?) The clarity of the photos are good and the image stabilization feature is great for someone like me with unsteady hands. The weight (or lack of it rather) is also good for prolonged shoots.

I bought the camera from WS Retail. Just as usual, they were prompt with the delivery and the packaging was also good.

Now for some slight cons.

The first one is not a deal breaker. The camera has no view finder. But the LCD screen works well enough in all situations. So I have included this as an info rather than something that is a disadvantage.

Secondly, the camera pack has no interface cable. You have to either use a compatible one that you already have or bu a new one. It didn't strike me when I was going through the product description here. (I happened to have an old cable that was compatible. So while I didn't have any issues with this lack of cable, other people might need to know it specifically.)

Do note that I have not experimented much with the video quality of the camera as I don't have much use for it.

As a further note to flipkart : Please include a complete set of photos for the product. It is no fun going to other sites and having to check out their photos to buy from you guys.

Good budget bridge Cam
by sri kumar on 2014-04-01

After a lot of research, I finally chose Canon SX 510HS. It is definitely better than a point and shoot camera but has certain cons too which depends on persons.

Plus points:
1. It is lighter than what it looks like.
2. Very easy UI.
3. Perfect cam for beginners before going into a full fledged DSLR.
4. Pretty good zoom (the main plus).
5. Within budget compared to Canon SX50HS.

Now here comes the minus points:
1. selective color photo highlighting only blue/orange with others in grayscale feature is absent.
2. Background defocus absent (major blow).
3. battery life - at max 220 shots (frugal usage, settings).
4. USB sharing way better than unwanted Wifi sharing.
5. Widescreen does not look like widescreen photo at all. :(

With all these points in consideration, Canon SX50HS would be THE AWESOME choice.
However, SX510HS is a good camera for amateurs and only for them!!

ONLY Flipkart can delivery on Time!!!
by slash on 2014-05-28

Its an awsome camera...Canon has reduced the MP and increased the sensitivity of the sensor...Consequently...better picture that other 18MP cameras in the market....Remember....ONLY Flipkart can deliver on Time!!!...However, I had purchased the camera from somewhere else....and it arrived much late...

A great camera to have
by Unnikrishnan TP on 2014-07-25

If you are planning to buy an advance P&S camera, this is a great buy
I have spent a full week to decide which one to choose from the following three
Powershot sx510__Sony DSC H300__Nikon coolpix L830
And I am sure that I have gone very deep indeed.
Believe me, this is just amazing
-- It has got a CMOS sensor( the other ones dont have it)...12MP CMOS does d job of 20MP CCD.....and Cmos is way faster and low light sensitivity is finer than ccd
--The image stabilization is awesome. Even at 60X dig zoom, you get fine clarity
--The Li-ion battery life is very good
-- very easy to hold in your hand and weighs only abt 400gms
-- High speed bust mode is really good...cant get this in d others
-- No Panorama options
Overall its a grt buy

I am happy with this purchase. The camera displays minute features without having to go for the DSLR accessories.
The prompt service from flipkart is also highly appreciated

Good Marketing Team at the back !!! Unethical..
by Ayush Prem on 2014-12-03

I don't know if you will publish this review or not but I would like to tell this to everyone.. Yesterday I saw this Camera for Rs 12,999 and today its showing Rs 15,599... Actually Flipkart plays with IPs of their visitor's computers... and they follow the concept of 'Re-marketing' and according to it if same user comes back to see any particular product next day, they show the same product at 20% or 30% higher price..!!!!

I was that close close to buy this product from Flipkart but now I will not buy from here.. Not at all pleased with the sudden increase (for no good reason, just a silly tech-crunch activity) in price.

by Anirban Basu on 2014-10-24

In one word its the best camera in this range.
pic quality is too good
total 120x zoom
face detection
no need of flash all the time

A Decent Bridge Cam in a decent budget.
by Krishna Vikas MS on 2014-05-15

Its a very good device with some amazing bridge/advance P&S features. Its very handy, easy to carry, and shoot on those quick moments, the optical zoom is superb. The lens and stabilisation are of great end. It has some very good shooting modes. Good Video quality as well.

Excellent piece from Canon in this low price
by Vikas Kshemakalyani on 2015-10-21

Canon PowerShot SX510 is a very nice and marvelous piece of work for low budget enthusiasts, it 30x zoom is really working very nice. The persons who does not need any DSLR range camera due to low budget can think of purchasing this camera without any problem. It worked very well when I used it. The packaging and delivery from Flipkart and its service was very nice.

by Mounava Pramanik on 2015-03-01

Worth Buying...excellent battery backup ..sufficient space for pic and videos in standard mode. quality of pouch is also good..
overall good product and worth buying
