Canon IXUS 105 and 130 Double Digital Camera Review
28 September 2012
Conclusion: If you want greater creative control over your images, consistent results in image quality and aren’t looking to break the budget, then the 105 or 130 possibly aren’t for you. That’s not to say however that they aren’t well-made cameras that the right buyers won’t absolutely love.
Summary: The Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS updates the very popular SD1200 IS . Most of the differences between the two cameras are inconsequential – more cosmetic than substantive – with the exception of the disappearance of the SD1200 IS’s optical viewfinder and the SD1300 IS’s 33% more zoom and nifty new...
Pros: Ultra-compact, Stylish, User-friendly
Cons: No optical viewfinder, Tendency to overexpose, Limited exposure options
Summary: The Canon IXUS 105 / PowerShot SD1300 IS is a 12.1 Megapixel compact with a 4x zoom lens and a 2.7in screen. Successor to the best-selling IXUS 95 / SD1200 IS, it adds 2 Megapixels of resolution and, most usefully, a wider zoom to its predecessor's specification.
Pros: 4x zoom with wide angle coverage., Effective optical image stabilization., Very good image quality., SDXC card compatible.
Cons: Slow continuous shooting., No optical zoom while filming., Optical viewfinder now gone.
Excerpt: We have always gone by the notion that small is beautiful. And it generally is. However while they get much easier to carry they tend to lose out on usability. Having said that, the Canon IXUSs have always been the forefront of luxury cameras.
This compact Canon camera delivers consistent results with no nasty surprises
