Canon IXUS 510 HS

The Good Sharp images; Great colours; Built-in Wi-Fi.

The Bad A touch pricey, which loses it half a star.

The Bottom Line A return to form for the IXUS line, the Canon IXUS 510 HS is one of the best-looking cameras you can buy, and if you do, you won't be disappointed with its output. Vivid colours, fine detail and a good zoom make this camera a great choice.

Canon IXUS 510 HS

May 2012

Canon has taken the IXUS back to its roots with the 510 HS. Over the years, the company's ultra-pocketable digital cameras have become decidedly less friendly towards tight jeans-wearing hipsters. But with the 510 HS, the once expanding girth has been significantly trimmed.

It's smaller than a pack of cards or cigarettes -- the traditional benchmarks -- at just 85mm by 53mm by 20mm, and it tips the scales at just 163g, including the battery and memory card. That's not much, but in this compact a body, it feels surprisingly weighty.

The Canon IXUS 510 HS retails for £350 but is available online for around £285.
