The Canon Power Shot SX510 HS Point-and-Shoot Camera is a
compact point-and-shoot camera featuring a 12.1 megapixel 1/2.3"
high-sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 image processor to produce high
resolution still imagery and full HD 1080p video with notable low-light
sensitivity and quality. The sensor and processor work together to
enable the Canon HS SYSTEM, which helps to reduce noise levels and gain
greater clarity for enhanced low-light imagery. The processor also
affords speed throughout the entire camera system, including High Speed
AF and Zoom Framing Assist, which help to assure sharp and maintained
focus on fast-moving subjects.
The built-in Canon 30x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent
focal length range of 24-720mm, covering wide-angle to super telephoto
lengths for working in nearly any situation. The reach of this lens is
enhanced by the optical image stabilization system that works to reduce
the appearance of camera shake. Six distinct settings of Intelligent IS
image stabilization are also available, and can be automatically applied
to suit the type of shooting and subject matter.
For image composition, playback, and menu navigation, a large, bright
3.0" 461k-dot LCD monitor is available and facilitates access for
utilizing the SX510 HS' built-in wireless capabilities. The Wi-Fi
connectivity helps to expedite sending imagery from the camera directly
to an Android or iOS mobile device through the use of the free Canon
CameraWindow app. Also helpful is the CANON iMAGE GATEWAY, which serves
as an intuitive interface for uploading images directly to social
networking and cloud sites.
For refining the look of imagery and helping to ensure precise exposure
settings, Smart AUTO modes can be utilized to allow the camera to select
all camera settings based on the interpreted scene at hand. Thirty-two
different pre-defined shooting situations are available to cover working
in a wide variety of conditions.
