This is very good Low-light (CMOS HS sensor) Point and shoot for the price point. Following are pros and cons.
- Sleek camera with amazing build quality with 12X optical zoom.
- Image stabilization amazing even with full zoom.
- Low light performance is very good for price point.
- Large screen (3.2)
- 1080p video capture quality is amazing.
- Very low shutter lag and very quick back to back snaps.
- Takes MicroSD instead SD card
- Touchscreen is resistive so not very responsive
- When connected to HDMI, one has to use touch screen to switch snaps (real bad interface).
- Low capacity battery (just 100 snaps)
- Wifi configuration not easy, Anroid app can just be used for snap transfer.
- No viewfinder.
- Supplied microSD card is slow (poor performance on CrystalDisk), I replaced that with sandisk 16G
- Supplied pouch is useless.
- Online registration (for 1+1 warranty) first said serial number invalid. Then I had to escalate it to canon to get it fixed.

The product is relatively small but heavy. 16gb micro sd card support easily i mean not slow the processing. very good Zoom function , miniature effect is just excellent like manual focus. an excellent func: of thic camera. Full HD pic quality. NB-9L battery back up is not so good, i suggest buy another battery for emergency purpose. wi-fi connectiviy is some complicated process.

The 1080p video can recorded for 2 minutes only on full charge. The battery dies afterwards. You need to connect it to constant power source to record 1080p video.
What is the use of the feature if you cannot even use it?
Look at Samsung and Fujifilm cameras. Same price range; but features and usability are excellent!
Canon, please use your own products before fool the customers only with a brand-name.
Beats all the cameras worth upto Rs20,000/- except Fuji

1.Everything about this camera- build,design,size,image quality,video quality,slow-mo,etc.
Digital Zoom= extends up to 48x
Images at 21x zoom are Sharp
Images at 48x are grainy.[but clear only when using tripod]
2.Battery charges is less than an hour.
1. Battery is not AA type!
2. Battery NB-9L is only 870mah.
which lasts for less than 120 shots with flash.
Original canon battery NB-9L 870mah is available for Rs1600/-
Replacement battery Digitek NB-9L 1200mah is available for Rs645/- [available on flipkart]
I personally think that this is also very costly so i have ordered DSTE NB-9L 1000mah batteries from ebay as they cost around Rs300/-
And i have read many reviews about DSTE Batteries and found that this battery works well and many HS510 users worldwide are very satisfied with the performance of this battery.
All of the above mentioned batteries are compatible with Canon battery charger that you get with the camera.
I personally think that if you are planning to use this camera while traveling, your will need 5 or 6 replacement batteries in your pocket.
3.Replacement batteries available are not more than 1300mah.
I used to use AA alkaline 2700mah batteries which would last for 350 shots with flash and 400 shots without flash.
4. Images are shaky and blurry in low light when not using a tripod.
MY RATING: 4 STARS
1 Minus for the obvious reason: Battery

Good Digital Camera. Has very good picture quality. Small in size and hence always put your safety wrist band always in your hands while taking pics. Good for beginner photographers.

At this price this is a very good camera
Features that i found really amazing are CMOS image sensor, very good image stabilization, HD video recording, touch screen and WiFi capability. the only problem that i found in the camera is its battery and camera don't have usb charging facility.

First of all, I really liked the size of the camera which is almost equivalent to size of credit card(although more width).
The Wifi connectivity is another good feature to share photos/videos from camera to My laptop, iPhone,Android phone(i have tried with all).
Picture quality /video quality is really good.
