PowerShot cameras offer shooting modes that make it easy to take perfect photos in a wide range of shooting situations by providing intelligent presets with optimized settings.
Manual You have complete control of exposure, selecting both aperture and shutter speed manually.
Aperture-Priority You set the aperture, controlling depth-of-field. The camera automatically selects the shutter speed.
Shutter-priority You select the shutter speed to stop or blur action, and the camera finds the appropriate aperture. With slow exposure times, Canon's noise reduction system activates to ensure low image noise.
Program Access advanced exposure compensation features while shooting mostly automatically.
Live View Control Enables Brightness, Color, and Tone adjustments to your images using easy-to-understand controls.
Smart AUTO The camera automatically selects the best shooting settings for optimal quality based on subjects and environmental factors to provide point-and-shoot simplicity.
Movie Digest Records a video clip before capturing a still image and then combines one day's worth of clips into a video. Now easily playback and review clips, and delete unwanted scenes.
Portrait The camera sets a large aperture, focusing the subject and artistically blurring the background to make your subject “pop.”
Face Self-timer The camera waits for a face to enter the frame before releasing the shutter.
High-Speed Burst Captures rapid action frame by frame, by shooting continuously at a high speed while the shutter button is held down.
Low Light For high quality image capture in an amazing range of dimly-lit situations.
Snow Shoot clear snow scenes without darkened subjects or an unnatural bluish tint.
Fireworks Create brilliant images of skyrocketing fireworks.
Creative Filters This setting provides easy access to special filter effects and scene modes, such as Toy Camera Effect, Poster Effect, Monochrome and more.
Discreet Mode Disables flash, AF assist beam, and all camera sounds with one mode dial setting so you can capture images in quiet areas.
Movie Record video in stereo sound. Unwanted scenes can be deleted in playback mode.
Super Slow Motion Movie Record your clips in high speed (approx. 240 fps), and then watch your videos in slow motion.
Actual results may vary from examples shown above.
Final image may vary depending on picture composition.
Special Scene Modes with Creative Filters
Special Scene Modes have fun and creative filters you can add to your photos without having to use a computer. You can make a quirky portrait using a Fisheye Lens Effect or add a beautiful single-tone effect with Monochrome. Toy Camera Effect simulates a vintage look as if capturing the photo using a “toy” or pinhole camera. Make a scene appear like a small-scale model with Miniature Effect, when shooting from a high vantage point. Super Vivid enhances an image for bright, intense colors while Poster Effect alters the contrast of an image for poster-like presentation.
The PowerShot SX510 HS camera takes energy conservation to the next level with ECO Mode, which provides more shots per single charge through monitor and camera power management. ECO Mode can be activated for easy power preservation when an outlet is unavailable. ECO Mode quickly wakes the camera from sleep when a button is pressed or with a touch of the LCD screen. With ECO Mode activated to conserve power, you can even stay connected for longer with the built-in Wi-Fi® feature on the PowerShot SX510 HS. With ECO Mode, you can be sure that your camera will keep up when fun with family and friends runs late into the night!

Very good purchase
I would recommend this product to future buyers. It is a great size and is very light weight. The wifi connection is really not a problem. I am a thirteen year old girl and I found that it took less than ten minutes. The manual follows through the process very well. And I'm not too sure why it was harder for the other buyers to follow the SIMPLE manual to connect the wifi. The wifi works very well and it is a great feature.

Great Little Camera
I waited till my annual canoe trip in South Texas in February before reviewing my new camera. It’s my acid test for product durability with the rain and the cold and the beer. I’ve greatly enjoyed this camera the 3 months I’ve used it. In addition to canoeing/kayaking, I enjoy shooting vacation shots, landscapes, vacation dogs, bands, whatever. I have had 3 Canon cameras since 1984: the AE-1, the Powershot A530, and now the Powershot SX510 HS. (I’m product loyal in my cars, musical instruments and electronics too, but aren’t we all?)
What do I like? Great pictures, closeups, zoom lens, action shots, night shots with or without flash, fish eye effect, ease of button commands, and after a gritty 27 mile canoe trip down the central Texas river, very durable and trouble –free. Battery life was adequate for an all day event. I did not, and may or may not use the WIFI function, I just prefer to plug camera to computer by cord. If you need that to work, can’t help you there. I don’t take videos yet either… maybe later thought?? My phone is a phone and my camera is this Canon…but I digress.
The con qualities, not too many… weird size is …weird, but embrace the new. I think that’s it...weird size in the hand..did I say that? Not much for the complaint department. It’ll be a workhorse camera like the old Canons I had were.
However, it is so very, very much better a camera than my other two Canons, and they went around the world and back with me. I know there’s a mess of great cameras out there. You could do a heck of a lot worse owning this camera…that sounds confusing doesn’t it…not meant to be. I’m very fine with the fact that the Canon SX510 HS Powershot will be my camera for the next 10 years.
