Canon IXUS 510 HS – The Social Camera
Do you always revert to your iPhone when out? Do you often turn around and go “well that was disappointing” because the photo you took didn’t turn out in the dark? We know where you’re coming from and that is why the new Canon range have really pricked some ears around the Camera House family. The reason for smart phones being so popular when taking photos is partly because of their capability of direct upload to Facebook and other social media sites and while 60% of the time smartphones do get a great shot there’s that other 40% that can be very hit and miss.
Canon have noticed this new phenomenon and have embraced it! They’ve transformed their traditionally small compact camera and have re-engineered it with the social snapper in mind. Canon’s new IXUS 510 HS has built in wi-fi capabilities which trust us has never made sharing your life easier with friends and family.
The camera has a large 3.2 inch touch screen LCD which is where the magic happens. Once you’ve taken a photo it is simple as going to the Facebook or Twitter icons and pressing ‘upload.’ Something else which we found very intuitive was the seamless view on Canon’s new take on ‘Share’ – they’ve also made it possible to share your images with other Canon wi-fi enabled cameras and also tablet devices, computers and even smartphones which means that not only will the Canon IXUS 510 HS become a new alternative to the iPhone but it will also become a friend. You can upload your images directly from your camera to your phone, all in original file sizes, and MMS them to whoever you like or upload them to other social media like tumblr for instance. Sharing photos has never been more fun and seamless, this really is an exciting venture into a world with better photography sharing capabilities!
