Built-in Wi-Fi® gives you more options for sharing with friends, family and the whole world
The PowerShot SX510 HS camera is equipped with built-in Wi-Fi® technology for on-the-go convenience when you want to share your photos and videos with friends, family and the whole world. The camera can connect directly to both iOS® and Android devices*, and upload images via the free Canon CameraWindow app** without a computer. Easily post your images to social networking and media sites Facebook®, Twitter®, YouTube, and now Flickr® through CANON iMAGE GATEWAY# or save them to the online photo album to share anytime, anywhere. Enhanced Wi-Fi® makes posting in real time possible, so you can keep everyone up to date with photos even as events unfold. Easily control the destination of your uploads to social networking sites; share with everyone, or send photos to selected groups. You can also add comments! Transfer images to other Wi-Fi® equipped PowerShot cameras, send images to your computer, or print your photos directly to a wireless PictBridge certified printer.
Enhanced Wi-Fi® features make connecting and sharing easier than ever
Built-in Wi-Fi® on the PowerShot SX510 HS camera has new features that streamline set-up and sharing for a faster, easier, more comprehensive experience than ever. WEP Key input is no longer necessary, and you can even set up and manage your camera/web service transfer preferences without the use of a software CD or USB cable Wi-Fi® and a web browser are all you need! And, new Automatic Switching through the Image Sync function makes saving and organizing your images easier##. When the camera finds a linked PC on the same wireless network, images are sent directly to it. Otherwise, images are temporarily stored on CANON iMAGE GATEWAY# then transferred once a connection is made, eliminating the need for cables.

Let's keep this simple: The SX510 HS is a cool, point-and-shoot camera. Just be sure to be very calm and in a happy place when you read the manual to figure out how it all works or you're going to break the cam as you slam it on the floor in frustration. Oh...be sure to have the phone number handy of a good tech geek friend. The greatest frustration I had was with the Wi-fi feature, which is the feature I wanted most in a camera. Good luck in connecting to the Internet or other devices easily! The Canon website is not the most user-friendly either. Patience, grasshoppers! Can't say it's worth it, but you can finally actually muddle your way through the website and setting up the camera. The Wi-fi feature is NOT easy to use; the camera buttons are NOT clearly marked as they are referred to in the manual; the manual is NOT easy to follow (i.e. instructions on page xx refers you to page xxx before you can proceed with instructions on page xx). If you're new to this level of camera technology, consider taking anti-anxiety medication before learning to use it...or dump the whole devices inter-connectability idea. It was a special gift so I'm reluctant to return it.

I love this camera! It is great for everything I need in a camera. From the vibrant, impressive image quality to the bright LCD display, everything about this camera is perfection. I love the full HD recording and the built in HDMI output. It's great for recording movies and home videos. The 12.1 megapixel images look great, with large and vibrant quality. The images I capture look absolutely stunning. Overall, I think this is an amazing camera, and there is nothing bad about it.

I bought this to replace an old lower MP camera and specifically to take on a trip. I wanted a camera that would allow me to shoot a variety of subjects without having to change lenses and cart around a bunch of equipment. The zoom on this camera cannot be beat. Absolutely fabulous....and the picture quality with the zoom at max is awesome. We have a fancy-smancy DSL camera also but I suspect this one will be used much more. Great value for the features. My only slight negative is that it is a little small in my hands. Good size for sticking in a purse, but a little difficult for me to get a good grip. Overall very pleased with the purchase.
