Patrick, Hindhead Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
From you guys I got a much better camera for my money than I otherwise would have been able to afford. This is a cracking camera. I particularly like the semi and full manual modes.
Bad points:
I have fairly big hands so the smallish buttons and dials take a bit of getting used to.

Manufacturer's Description

A portable mini bridge camera with 30x zoom, the PowerShot SX510 HS comes fully equipped with HS System, Wi-Fi and Full HD movies for capturing and sharing every occasion with ease.

Key benefits:
Get closer and capture the full detail of distant subjects with a huge 30x optical zoom, or up to 60x with ZoomPlus. Fit more in the frame with 24mm ultra-wide-angle for great group shots and stunning landscapes. The huge zoom fits neatly into a mini bridge style body that’s so small it’s easy to carry, wherever you go.

HS System excels in low light allowing you to capture the real atmosphere of the moment without flash or a tripod. A high performance DIGIC 4 processor and high-sensitivity 12.1 Megapixel CMOS image sensor give superior image quality in all situations.

An optical Image Stabiliser with Intelligent IS automatically combats camera shake to prevent blur giving sharp, detailed photos and videos at full zoom or when shooting handheld in low light.

Wi-Fi lets you connect easily with home wireless networks, compatible printers and PCs, plus portable devices like smartphones and tablets, for fast, online image sharing and backup. Use your smartphone’s GPS to tag images with shooting locations over Wi-Fi.
Easily record Full HD movies (1080p) with stereo sound and optical zoom, with one touch of the Movie Record button. Enhanced Dynamic IS powerfully compensates for movement in movies for smooth results when shooting on the move.

Effortlessly shoot great photos or movies with Smart Auto, which detects the scene and selects optimal settings from 32 variables (21 in movies). All you have to do is point and shoot.
