More zoom to experiment.

Best of both worlds
Even though it contains a host of advanced technologies, the PowerShot A510 has been designed so first time users can switch on and start shooting for immediate, great results - straight out of the box. Yet for those that intuitively push technology boundaries, this 3.2 Megapixel camera comes packed with exciting manual features.

Go further
A powerful 4x optical zoom gets you right in close to the action, while an incredible 20 versatile shooting modes, including 8 special scene modes, are on board for you to experiment with. The special scene modes are stored shooting presets ideal in tricky shooting conditions when you don't want to use the manual controls. There is even an 'Underwater' mode for use with the exciting optional waterproof case.

Movie mode
Take up to 3 minute movie clips, complete with sound recording and playback on the large 1.8" LCD monitor. For high definition playback on TV, the camera even records 30 second VGA clips.

Advanced technologies
Every function on the PowerShot A510 works with you to get great photos. Canon Visionary Technology combines in the form of a superb quality lens, precision sensor and super fast processor to ensure accurate colours and high clarity images. To speed up focusing and optimise exposures, the camera analyses the scene and makes setting adjustments even before the shutter release is pressed. The 9-point AiAF helps ensure pictures are always perfectly focused, even with off-centre subjects.

Print and share
A Print/Share button makes direct printing to any Canon Direct Print or PictBridge compatible printer a breeze, and simplifies uploads to any Windows PC. When connected to a Canon SELPHY Compact Photo Printer, the PowerShot A510 allows you to print a sequence of movie clip frames, and to produce your very own ID photos.

With Canon's ZoomBrowser EX (for Windows) and ImageBrowser (for Macintosh) you can arrange photo albums, crop photographs and adjust contrast and brightness with ease. Online sharing is simple with 100 MB free storage on CANON iMAGE GATEWAY.

The range of optional accessories includes a 40m depth waterproof case, large capacity rechargeable batteries and a High-Power Flash to extend night shooting range. Wide and tele converters broaden the focal range of your camera to give your images a whole new perspective.

With camera phones hitting two megapixels and above, you may think it odd that Canon is still producing three-megapixel compacts like the A510. However, pick it up and those doubts are immediately dispelled - this is a solid camera with a bright 1.8-...

Good solid digital camera. Very wide range of features for a three megapixel camera in this price range.

This digital camera stands out because of its image quality, full set of manual controls and good battery life. Pictures from the A510 have saturated colors, good sharpness, little distortion and good resolution. The downsides are few (image noise, lo...

The body of the A510 is a mix of metal and plastic: the front of the body is covered by a smooth metallic piece that has the Canon name in raised brushed metal letters, while the rest of the body is a mix of well-fitted silver and champagne coloured pl...

Announced just before PMA in February 2005, the PowerShot A510 is the replacement for the PowerShot A75, and continues the line of best-selling budget models that goes right back to early 2001 with the A10 and A20. The changes are evolutionary rather...
Good Good resolution for a budget 3.2 megapixel camera, Bright, vivid - though natural - color, Good edge-to-edge sharpness, Useful new 35-140mm equiv. 4x zoom lens, Reliable focus and exposure, Lots of manual controls, Excellent build quality for a budget cam...
Bad Images need sharpening, Focus can be slow - especially at the long end of the zoom, Flash recycle way too slow, Minimum two-second shot-to-shot time, Slow start-up...
Bottom line Everything we said about the PowerShot A520 applies equally to the A510; it would be hard to find a more suitable first digital camera for the novice digital photographer on a budget. No matter what the situation, the A510 turns out perfectly exposed...
