The Canon Powershot A510 is a 3.2 megapixel digital camera with a 4x optical zoom lens. The lens has a focal length equivalent to a 35-140mm lens on a 35mm film camera. The optical zoom lens is backed up by a 3.2x digital zoom feature.
In many ways the Powershot A510 fits into its own niche. Although it falls into the category of a standard digital camera it has a number of advanced features that the majority of its rivals do not offer in this range. These features include manual exposure. If you are looking for a straightforward point and shoot model then don’t rule this one out though. It can be used in fully automatic mode and with its competitive price it is likely to appeal to a very wide range of people.
