Canon SX500IS and SX510HS both use Li-ion rechargeable batteries (class NB-6L or NB-6LH respectively)... I think this is a very important advantage, considering many of the competitors, at the same price range, including Nikon (i.e. Coolpix L820), use 4x AA dtilo battery!!!

With so many pros for SX 510 You still declare SX 500 as the winner. Kindly clarify.
