Photographyblog reviews the Canon ELPH 510 HS (IXUS 1100 HS) and writes;
“We love the marriage of the new back-illuminated sensor and DIGIC IV processor. They work perfectly together and this is no more obvious than in the noise results. To say the ISO pictures are impressive is an understatement.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Cameralabs reviews the Canon ELPH 510 HS (IXUS 1100 HS) and writes;
“A common sensor and Digic 4 processor means there’s little to differentiate the current ELPH / IXUS line-up other than hardware, but the ELPH 510 HS / IXUS 1100 HS is an exceptional compact, combining a powerful zoom with great ease of use in a slim, stylish form.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

“The 510 HS has a good one, not too stiff, good tactile feedback, easy to shoot with. In fact, construction of the 510 HS is quite solid overall, particularly the sturdy lens barrel.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

CNET reviews the Canon ELPH 510 HS and writes;
“Color accuracy is excellent for its class, producing bright and vivid results. Exposure is generally very good, but highlights tend to blow out.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

dpinterface reviews the Canon ELPH 510 HS and writes;
“The Canon PowerShot ELPH 510 HS does well in terms of noise and detail. The camera produces sharp and clear photos with little to no noise from ISO 100 to 400. At ISO 800, we start to see some graininess and slight detail loss but image quality still remains very usable.”
rating: N/A

Digitaltrends reviews the Canon ELPH 510 HS and writes;
“The Canon PowerShot 510 HS is a solid 12MP camera with a very useful 12x zoom. Image quality is very good and the movies are more than satisfactory. Optical Image Stabilization is also a real plus. “
Rating: ★★★★☆

Techradar reviews the Canon ELPH 510 HS and writes;
“Images taken at low sensitivities are rich with detail, and noise doesn’t really start to factor until ISO 1600,.. even images taken at ISO 3200 are perfectly acceptable, and should still make decent enough A4-sized prints and look great when shared on the web.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Ephotozine reviews the Canon ELPH 510 HS and writes;
“The camera produces a decent image and you can get really close into the action with the 12x optical zoom lens which is packed into the small body. The camera is priced quite highly and the battery life is quite short at just 170 shots. Overall, if your budget can stretch to the price, the Canon IXUS 1100 HS comes recommended.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Trustedreviews reviews the Canon ELPH 510 HS and writes;
“The 12x optical zoom offers a generous degree of flexibility while out shooting and delivers good sharpness in the middle of the frame, although detail does get softer towards the edges and corners of the frame.”
