Newly expanded built-in Wi-Fi® offers quick and easy setup, and lets you post to Facebook®, Twitter®, YouTube and Flickr®, send to email, plus share with your tablet, smartphone, networked PC and wireless PictBridge certified printer. With the ultra-powerful 30x Optical Zoom, you can capture an athlete's facial expressions from up in the bleachers, achieving crisp clarity with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer. The 24mm Wide-Angle lens captures family groups and landscapes with ease.

Shooting is fun and spontaneous with High Speed AF, and Zoom Framing Assist makes it easy to keep subjects in sight at the long end of the zoom.

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.

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.

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.

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.
