PowerShot SX510 HS

The powerful 30x optical zoom ultra-wide-angle 24mm PowerShot SX510 HS offers great flexibility to photograph a variety of different subjects, and gives precise details throughout the focal range, even in low light conditions. SX510 HS utilizes Canon's HS System, which combines a high-sensitivity CMOS sensor with 12.1 megapixels with a DIGIC 4 processor to capture the true ambience of low-light scenes, such as at dusk, while maintaining the realism of the colors and the richness of detail significantly lowering the risk of a blur.

Using the Wi-Fi functionality of the PowerShot SX510 HS, photos and videos can be shared on social media sites such as Facebook ®, Flickr and YouTube directly from the camera or sent to smartphones and tablets that use the free app Canon CameraWindow 1. Still using the same application, the GPS function is also available thanks to which you can add geotags to images recorded when shooting from a smartphone or tablet (compatible GPS).

In addition to outstanding still images, the PowerShot SX510 HS is also capable of recording Full HD movies (1080p) complete with stereo sound. SX510 HS also features Super Slow Motion Movie mode to provide a more effective way to revive the action when shooting fast-moving subjects.

PowerShot SX170 IS

The lens allows you to take a variety of scenarios, from group shots at parties or at close-ups of wild animals. Bright colors and surprising details characterize the photos captured by the PowerShot SX170, thanks to the powerful 16 megapixel sensor capable of producing images to be proud of. SX170 IS is also capable of recording HD movies.

Should I buy a refurbished digital camera?

I noticed I can buy a refurb Canon Digital Rebel with lens for about $500 plus shipping from online vendors with 90-day warranty. Has anybody had experience with buying a refurb digital SLR? There are a lot of moving parts and electronics, so I'm wondering if a refurb is OK.
On eBay and CL, people sell this same camera kit used for about $600.
The 6mp Rebel is a discontinued item, and I haven't seen any closeouts. I guess they're all gone.
