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.

12.1 Megapixel High–Sensitivity CMOS sensor
The PowerShot SX510 HS camera employs a Canon 12.1 Megapixel High–Sensitivity CMOS sensor, which delivers state–of–the–art imaging performance and is optimized for use in compact cameras. Utilizing a sophisticated light–capturing design, it provides high sensitivity for improved high ISO capture with reduced noise. It is also a high–speed design, capable of rapidly capturing and moving image data to the processor, enabling faster continuous shooting and faster autofocus.

Canon DIGIC 4 Image Processor
Canon DIGIC Image Processors have set the standard for functionality and performance since their groundbreaking introduction in 1999. With each successive generation, DIGIC Image Processors have brought elevated performance and powerful new features to PowerShot digital cameras. The DIGIC 4 Image Processor has ushered in high levels of picture quality and accelerated processing, making possible features such as high–speed continuous shooting, Full HD video and Face Detection Self–timer. More powerful noise reduction algorithms also provide improved low–light capture.

Canon Full HD Video Advantage
In addition to the Canon HS SYSTEM, the combination of the advanced CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 Image Processor in the PowerShot SX510 HS camera makes it possible to shoot crisp, clear high definition video. Imagine the fun and excitement of being able to shoot spectacular 1080p Full HD video with stereo sound that you can later watch on your HDTV or download to your computer to share with family and friends. In addition to being able to shoot Full HD 1080p video at 24* frames per second, the PowerShot SX510 HS can also shoot 720p HD video at 30** frames per second.

Smart AUTO
The PowerShot SX510 HS camera features Smart AUTO: sophisticated Canon technology that makes getting that great shot as simple as pressing the shutter button. Smart AUTO automatically detects scenes by assessing various factors in both the background and the subject. Detected scenes are analyzed using 32 predefined shooting situations. The camera then makes optimal settings to ensure the best possible image capture, whether you're shooting stills or video. Smart AUTO also includes Advanced Subject Detection, which allows the camera to detect and track non–human moving subjects like animals and vehicles. With Smart AUTO, all you have to do is frame your shot and capture away..

High Speed AF
The PowerShot SX510 HS camera is equipped with Canon's latest advancements in autofocus (AF) technology. Canon's newly–developed AF achieves a significant increase in speed for a shooting experience that's spontaneous and natural. The remarkably responsive High Speed AF lets you capture great shots as they happen, with reduced lag time.

Several engineering breakthroughs contributed to this major enhancement to speed. In addition to improved AF algorithms, the camera can process multiple sequences simultaneously, and takes advantage of reworked controls between AF and the start of shooting.

Zoom Framing Assist
With its 30x Optical Zoom lens, the PowerShot SX510 HS camera has the telephoto reach to capture subjects a long distance away. At maximum telephoto, however, it can be challenging to track a moving subject. The Zoom Framing Assist seek function makes it much easier to use the camera's powerful zoom lens. When you press and hold the Zoom Framing Assist function button, the camera will automatically zoom out to include a wider angle of view, enabling you to more easily locate your moving subject. Once you find it, releasing the button will cause the lens to return to its original zoom position, intelligently keeping the subject in focus until you're ready to shoot and capture the perfect close–up moment. You can even make zoom adjustments while the button is pressed, with an animated assist frame that makes viewing easy. When the button is released, the lens will return to the adjusted zoom position. And enhanced Zoom Framing Assist keeps your subject's face the same size in your frame no matter how they move. Tap the Zoom Framing Assist function button to detect your subject's face. As your subject retreats and advances the camera automatically zooms in and out so their face remains the same size. It's especially useful for capturing the expressions of fast–moving children. And, for even more convenience, the Zoom Framing Assist function is also available when shooting video.

Intelligent IS
The latest advance in Canon Optical Image Stabilization technology, Intelligent IS, analyzes camera movement and applies the best shake correction method for the shooting situation. For stills, the system automatically selects among Normal, Panning, Macro (Hybrid) and Tripod IS modes. When shooting video, the system automatically selects among Dynamic, Powered, Macro and Tripod IS modes. With Intelligent IS, you can concentrate on image capture, letting the camera make the most effective IS settings to help capture the steadiest possible image.

High–Resolution 3.0–inch LCD
Composing and checking your shots is easier with PowerShot SX510 HS camera's clear, high–resolution 3.0–inch LCD screen (approximately 461,000 dots). The extra resolution also makes using the camera's menu functions more convenient. The large screen is easily viewable from a wide angle, whether you're shooting, reviewing or showing off your images.
