Powerful 30x Optical Zoom with 24mm Wide-Angle Lens
Given the PowerShot SX510 HS camera's compact size and attractive proportions, it is especially impressive that the camera is equipped with a mega-powerful 30x Optical Zoom. With a 35mm film equivalent focal length that extends all the way from 24mm to 720mm, your shooting reach is superb: you'll capture telephoto shots with detail like never before. The Wide-Angle Lens gives your images a distinctive sweep and grandeur, capturing landscapes, cityscapes, tall buildings and wide groups of people with ease. Genuine Canon optics help ensure that your images are resonant with the clarity and brilliance made possible by Canon's decades of industry leadership in optical technology.
THIS CAMERA IS A SWEET BUNCH OF POWERFUL OPTIONS!!
THIS PRODUCT IS JUST AWESOME SO FAR. EASY TO USE AND CONTROLS ARE SIMPLE LIKE THE MENU! NICE FEATURES LIKE BRIGHT LCD AND AWESOME IMAGE QUALITY.

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.
