Record Screens & Menus

By

Please excuse the quality of our screen samples, the 510 HS camera kit does not include AV cables, therefore we had to photograph the LCD for the following screen captures.

canon_510hs_rec_iauto.jpgHere you can see the 510's new and improved Smart Auto mode. This program allows you to simply point and shoot, without having to worry about any of the camera's settings. It will automatically adjust everything, including choosing the correct scene mode for the current shot you are framing by analyzing the scene and determining which of the pre-set modes (if any) best fit the photo. You have very limited control in this program (see menus below).

With the 510, you can record video at any time by simply touching the video record button on the right. You can record full HD (1080p), HD (1280x720), or VGA (640x480) video with Stereo sound and a fixed frame rate of 30fps. Other icons on the right include the Flash mode button (Auto or Off), Touch Shutter button (On or Off), and the DISPlay button to control the amount of info on the screen.


canon_510hs_rec_ready.jpgWhen you  half-press the shutter button in Smart Auto mode, a screen like above will be shown. If the camera chose a scene mode, you will see the icon at the top left (shows Auto in our screen), along with the exposure and ISO settings the camera has chosen. The Camera Shake symbol at the top right indicates that there is a possibility of blur caused by camera shake due to the slower shutter speed (1/20 above).



canon_510hs_rec_iauto_function_menu.jpgThe Function menu allows you to quickly make changes to camera settings, without having to enter the main menu system.

canon_510hs_rec_program.jpgWhen you throw the mode switch to the camera icon, Program mode is the default option. This is also an automatic shooting mode where the camera sets the shutter speed and aperture for you. However, now you have access to many of the other settings including ISO, White Balance, Exposure Compensation, and Metering options. Touching the "P" at the top left will take you to the menu below for choosing one of the available Scene modes.





canon_510hs_rec_modes_anim.gifHere you can see the 4 pages of shooting modes that are available to you in Program mode. When you select a mode by touching the icon, a brief description of the mode is displayed.

canon_510hs_rec_toy-camera.jpgHere we can see the ELPH 510's Toy Camera scene mode, which gives you pinhole camera type view of your subject with strong vignetting at the corners; which is done intentionally.
