Pros: tiny. Fits in my pocket no problem and its easy to walk in your pants with
face recognition software works like charm.
image quality is on par with camera at this range
the zoom easily beats my wifes camera. This camera zooms in very good.
Cons: battery life is just okay. I can almost a full days worth of shots before it needs recharging
Other Thoughts: I owned this camera since this summer and it has been my companion for my summer vacation and
weekend trips. I also have a nice DSLR but most of the time I was using this camera because I didn’t
bring my DSLR everywhere and this camera was able to fit in my glove compartment so it goes where I
go. What I really liked about this camera was its extended zoom. I was able to shoot images of some nice
seagulls at the pier from far away without scary them from at least 100 feet away in good detail. I also
used this camera when I shot some images of my family at a dinner gathering and it did a great job of
getting all faces tack sharp with its facial recognition. One thing that struck me was its all thin and sleek
metal body. Compared to my wife’s mostly plastic bulky Olympus camera this camera looks much more
durable and has a better build quality than I was expecting for this price range. I am glad I bought the
Elph 520 HS and think it has done the job nicely so far. I am very satisfied and would buy this again.
