The Canon IXUS 510 HS digital camera features a 28mm wide-angle 12x optical zoom lens. Newly developed imaging technology from Canon guarantees breathtaking pictures. Canon 'Zoom Plus' imaging technology means users can extend the optical zoom of their camera and get even closer into the action, while maintaining higher quality than traditional digital zoom. With Zoom Plus, the Canon IXUS 510 HS zoom extends beyond its 12x optical zoom to a stunning 21x. All that and much more is packed into a body measuring just 19.8mm front-to-back.

What's more, a large and bright 8cm / 3.2-inch PureColor II Touch LCD screen with 460,000-dot resolution, providing accurate contrast and exceptional colors. The new Canon IXUS camera is ideal for reviewing captured pictures and HD videos and showcasing them to friends. The touch navigation and customizable on-screen icons provide quick access to key camera settings, menus and a user’s entire photo collection, so pictures can be selected from here to upload to social network sites. The touch screen also powers Canon’s 'Touch Shutter' functionality which makes it possible to compose and capture subjects with a single touch of the screen.
Canon Intelligent Image Stabilization
The Canon IXUS 510 HS compact camera also features Canon’s Intelligent IS, providing advanced image stabilization that offers the freedom to capture a range of subjects with confidence. Harnessing a 3.5-stop optical Image Stabilizer, Intelligent Image Stabilization rapidly analyses the scene and automatically adjusts the settings, selecting from seven different stabilization modes to guarantee pictures and videos remain clear and with minimal blur.
