Canon's PowerShot SX510 HS improves on predecessor
-Hi, I'm Josh Goldman with CNET.
And this is a look at Canon's compact 30x zoom, the PowerShot SX510 HS.
Now, if you follow Canon's cameras closely, you might be saving yourself.
I've seen that before and you'd be right.
It's basically the same camera as last year's SX500 IS.
Many of the same features.
Canon did, however, update the sensor from a lower end
CCD type sensor to one of its high sensitivity 12 megapixel BSI CMOS sensors.
The sensor gives it better overall photo quality, but especially in low light performance and enables the camera to record video at 1080p at 24 frames per second.
Again, the rest of the camera is pretty much the same, although you do get WiFi in this model and you still get lots of shooting options including full manual and manual controls.
The 3-inch LCD is good
and the grip has this nice notch out, so you can get a good hold on it.
And to help you with your framing when you're using the zoom, there's this button on the side of the lens that shoots the lens back so you can find your subject and then zoom back in.
All in all, not a bad package if you're doing your shooting outdoors and your subjects aren't moving too fast.
I'm Josh Goldman and that's the Canon PowerShot SX510 HS.
