Description
In the twelve years since the original ELPH was instantly and universally proclaimed an icon of style, successive ELPH cameras have remained at the forefront of design even while boasting the very latest in digital technology. Now, opening a new era of ELPH design, the PowerShot ELPH 520 HS digital camera is both homage to the original ELPH and astonishing synthesis of Canon's leadership in technical advancements. A mere 0.76 inches thick, it is the world's thinnest 12x zoom camera*. Canon's pursuit of perfection has driven the development of new miniaturization including a new lens and new 10.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor that, powered by Canon's DIGIC 5 Image Processor, create images as breathtakingly beautiful as the camera itself. It's also packed with the latest Canon technologies including Smart AUTO with new Face ID and Full HD Video. Brimming with a full range of advanced technologies that automatically optimize the image quality of every shot, the PowerShot ELPH 520 HS digital camera makes the ultimate style icon incredibly effortless.

Canon PowerShot ELPH 520 HS Review
4 Star Review  Imaging Resource - Dec 31, 1969

Iconic and capable at the same time, the PowerShot 520 HS represents quite an evolution in Canon's classic ELPH design. Duplicating the same diminutive shape and size as its spiritual predecessors, the Canon 520 offers a 12x zoom ranging from 28-336mm with optical image stabilization. Its 3-inch LCD has a higher resolution of 461K-dots, and its simple control set and intelligent exposure modes make getting good stills and videos easy. Read our review for all the details!

Canon PowerShot Elph 520 HS (Black)
3 Star Review  cnet.com - Mar 29, 2012

THE GOOD: The <b>Canon PowerShot Elph 520 HS</b> is a good-looking camera thats remarkably compact for its 12x zoom lens. THE BAD: The 520 HS button layout takes some adjusting to, its battery life is relatively short, and its photo and movie quality are disappointing given the cameras price tag. THE BOTTOM LINE: The Canon PowerShot Elph 520 HS is a good choice for those already happy with their smartphones photos and movie clips, but looking for a cute little camera with a long zoom and faster performance.

4 Star Review   By Va Photographer on Adorama - Apr 8, 2013   

they say the best camera is the one you are carrying. I lose too many shots by not slinging my 7D/24-105 around my neck. This is a nice pocket camera. Smaller than a deck of cards. Fits easily into front pocket. Great 12X optical zoom, with digital post to 48X. functional IS. Best feature is the low light handheld which lays up to 4 snaps down to creae a single image. I shot indoor theater at full zoom and the results are great. No blur, loss of image quality. Takes very good video in regular or super speed to allow slo-mo playback. Only downside is short battery life. My twin batteries in the 7D grip last forever, this tiny NB-9L battery only goes maybe 100 shots. Inexpensive extra batteries are a MUST. I have an original ELPH APC camera. This is actually smaller, same boxey shape, but light years ahead in features and quality. This would not be my only camera, but it is the only camera I would have when my DSLR is at home.
