The Canon PowerShot ELPH 520 HS is a fine camera. Its small size makes it very convenient to carry around and its powerful zoom provides the user with tremendous versatility. It’s a quick performer, for the most part, though its shot-to-shot speed could be faster, especially when the flash is utilized. It produces sharp, colorful, low distortion images throughout the frame at all focal lengths, including in low light.
Overexposure can sometimes be an issue, which may cause colors to lose their punch, but the camera has settings to compensate for this. The camera takes good-looking movies, with only an occasional problem maintaining focus when the optical zoom is used. My major annoyances with the camera are its tiny buttons and its failure to include an auto-panorama mode. Hopefully future ELPH cameras will remedy these flaws.
