Re: Ixus 500 HS (elph 520 HS)

I got the ELPH 510 HS, which was announced in August 2011 and available in October.

I'm not too sure why Canon announced the 520, as it's not a clear improvement over the 510.

The differences are:

510 has the slightly larger 1/2.3" sensor, compared to the 1/3" of the 520
510 a few less smart auto scenes
510 has a touchscreen, (opinions vary, but I can live with it)
510 is SD not microSD

Today, given the choice, I'd still go with the 510 for the larger sensor and the SD card. As a pocketable point and shoot with a 12x zoom I can live with the touchscreen.
