|July 22, 2012||Posted by admin under Canon|
Compact ELPH cameras are very popular, and this high-end 10.1-MP model in a metal body is particularly attractive because of its DIGIC 5 processor, new High Sensitivity CMOS sensor, versatile 28-336 mm equivalent lens, Intelligent image stabilizer, 3″ LCD and 6.8-fps burst speed at full resolution.
It’s ideal for point-and-shoot operation in Advanced Smart Auto mode, which can select from a list of 58 Scene modes automatically, but it also includes all of the essential overrides.
- 6.8-fps continuous drive speed
- Superior new DIGIC 5 processor
- Surprisingly small, slim (19.2 mm) body
- Full HD Movie mode
- Many special effects modes
- Many AF options
- Very useful Smart Auto mode
- Resolution is a bit low at 10.1 MP
- No advanced operating modes
The sharp-edged design of the Canon PowerShot ELPH 520 HS gives it an interesting look for a point and shoot camera. And it has some good photographic features to match its cool design.
Still, it’s not easy to find the best models that measure just under 1 inch in thickness while offering 10X or greater optical zoom lenses, such as the Canon PowerShot ELPH 520 HS, which has a 12X zoom lens in a thin camera body.
Pros, Cons and Bottom Line
The ELPH 520 HS is available in blue, red, silver, and black camera bodies, depending on your location in the world.
