Canon IXUS 510 HS: Now With Wi-Fi Inside

By Mario Aguilar on at

The new Canon IXUS 510 HS will be the first Canon camera with built-in Wi-Fi capabilities. That means you'll be able to wirelessly upload photos to the internet as well as to transfer media directly to mobile devices.

The new camera uploads images to the Canon Image Gateway using a wireless network connected to the Internet. Canon's online service allows you to organize the photos and share them on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.

The 510 HS will also let your camera wirelessly play with smartphones and tablets. In March, Canon will release the CameraWindow iOS app, so you'll be able to transfer your photos and videos from the 510 HS directly to an iOS device and vice versa. Canon plans to release a similar Android app in May.

It's powered by Canon's new Digic 5 processor, which gives the camera speedier performance, and improved low-light shots compared to its Digic 4 predecessors. The 510 HS uses a 12x optical zoom, and shoots with a 10-megapixel, high-sensitivity CMOS sensor.

Canon will also be releasing the IXUS 240 HS, a cheaper camera with the same Wi-Fi features as the 510 HS. It is also powered by the Digic 5, has a 5x optical zoom, and carries a 16.1-megapixel, high-sensitivity CMOS sensor. Both the 510 HS and 240 HS can shoot 1080p HD video.

The IXUS 510 HS will cost £400 and be available in April, while the 240 HS will run you £320 in March. [Canon]
