Features in depth

12x optical zoom in tiny, chic body

The IXUS 510 HS packs a powerful 12x optical zoom in a tiny metal body with a sophisticated finish. Extremely versatile it offers a huge range of shooting options and lets you get up close to distant objects with 21x ZoomPlus - an advanced zoom technology with more visible detail and sharpness than conventional digital zoom.

HS System: 10.1 MP CMOS and DIGIC 5

The HS System excels in low light so you can capture the real atmosphere of the moment without flash or tripod. Advanced DIGIC 5 processing and a high sensitivity 10.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor give excellent image quality in all situations.

Intelligent IS

Intelligent IS combats camera shake to ensure all your photos and videos are sharp and detailed even at full zoom or in low light. It automatically adjusts the optical Image Stabilizer to the scene from 7 modes to prevent blur.

Wi-Fi for easy image sharing

Wi-Fi lets you connect your camera wirelessly with other devices* such as your smartphone, for quick and easy sharing of photos and movies with friends and family.

Fingertip control

A widescreen, high-resolution 8.0 cm (3.2") PureColor II Touch LCD with customisable smart touch interface provides intuitive control for fast, easy operation and pleasurable playback. Touch Shutter allows you to touch on the point of focus and then to trigger the shot.

Full HD movies, HDMI

Record superb Full HD (1080p) movies at 24fps with stereo sound and optical zoom. Intelligent IS keeps footage steady while filming, even at full zoom. An HDMI connection ensures high quality playback on an HDTV.

Smart Auto (58 scenes)

Effortlessly shoot great photos or movies with Smart Auto, which detects the scene and selects optimal settings from 58 variables (21 in movies). It also works with faces stored in Face ID and adapts shooting according to registered age – for example turning off flash and sounds when a sleeping baby is detected.

Face ID

Face ID registers up to 12 faces of family and friends, so they are automatically the focusing priority in every shot, and tags images with their names so they are easy to find in playback.

High-speed shooting

Use High-speed Burst to capture non-stop, fast-paced action or slow things down with Super Slow Motion Movie.

Movie Digest (720p)

Movie Digest records 4 seconds of video before each photo is shot and then joins all the recorded short clips into a bonus HD (720p) movie.
