Canon Powershot A510 Discussion
Read our review of the Canon Powershot A510 digital camera!..

Comments (10)

The test photo of the house in the 1st poster, as opposed to the distance shot, shows the 510 to suffer badly from blue fringing of trees (leaves, limbs, etc). I don't see how these clear color problems justify your statement that there is very little color aberration. To me, this test photo is typical of Canon digital cameras and is a serious defect that many other digital cameras do not suffer from. Of course, the problem may be in the the poster, in which case perhaps you could mention that fact. Joel..

I need to say: best camera for that price. Need to use quality nimh batteries and fast memory card. Good quality images are best to use tripod! Dont see any kind troubles on photos. Colors are realistic and sides on pictures. are good quality, of course I am not professional. All pictures, taken without flash, auto mode one with zoom.

Most digital cameras in this price/performance range show some amount of chromatic aberration, that from the A510 looks to my eye a lot less than average.

Dave, you mentioned in the review that the A510 lacks a contrast control option. In the manual it says the "Neutral" setting would lower contrast and saturation. Can you verify this and let us know if that setting is effective?.

If that setting is effective, I guess it would also mean that the color will be more true, less of the too-bright 'Canon' color? I'm currently thinking to get rid of my Minolta G400 and to buy the A510. I hope that you can clear this up for me...

Very very disappointed with my a70 powershot. after only 2 years, the lcd is broken. cost to repair is more than cost to get another camera. seems to be a common problem with canon. everyone had this as a top pick back then. bad decision on my part. never another canon...

Post your complaints about the A70 in the A70 forum......

Comment #6

Sometimes when I look at the LCD on my A510 I see some vertical blue/white streaks that come and go. If I move the camera away from light they seem to disappear and they never show up on any pictures. Is this normal or is there some kind of problem with the LCD in the camera?..

Go ahead buy the A510.

Just received mine from amazon.

It is a gem also own a nikon coolpix no match to the canon a510.

This is a camera for everyone and all occasions.

Just features and features and features.

And.

All of them really do work.

Very difficult to get blurred shots mean it if you want to get professional.

The sky is the limit.

Can anyone recoomend a camera with these features for only USD179.

......

Waiting.

Sorry none to be found.

CANON has really produced a winner..

"Neutral" does cut saturation and contrast, but it's fairly extreme, leaves the images pretty flat-looking. (It's not subtle.) You can see the effect in the Far-Field test section of the A510's sample pictures page. ( http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/A510/A51PICS.HTM ) I'd say if you don't like Canon color, you need to look for a camera by a different maker. Most consumer cameras have bright color though, as that's what the market has rewarded. If you liked the Minolta's color, a current Konica Minolta camera might be a better match for your tastes.

Hi everyone.

Is there a way to make my canon a510 remember the shooting mode setting? when turned off, it would always go back to "single shoot mode" so that each time I have to set it back to "continuous mode" in order to shoot more than one shot at a time.

BTW: excellent camera. great deal.

Thank you!..
