Excerpt: I bought SX130IS last year. With clear requirements : 1. Apurture priority Mode 2. AA batteries $200 budget I had shortlisted Fujifilm S2950 and SX130IS. Fujifilm had higher zoom and higher megapix and bridge body. After handling I found that compact body made it easy to carry around and IS felt better since its in lens hence live view is also stabilized. Manual mode is bonus. If you are thinking to learn about photography this is handy tool.
Excerpt: I got the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS Digital Camera a few months ago, and I love it sooo much! For the price, I really think it's one of the best out there! I know that Canon is a really reputable brand, and so far it's lived up to it's name for me! It has so many different fun settings, such as the fish-eye effect and miniature settings. It has a flash that you manually pop up or down, and the camera has lots of helpful suggestions while you're using it.
Excerpt: I recently purchased the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS Digital Camera for myself and i started taking pictures with it immediately and i was very impressed with the picture quality. The more pictures I took the more I loved this camera. Then i started playing with the twelve times optical zoom feature and I was even more impressed the clarity was still just like you were not zooming. The pictures are not grainny,fuzzy,or hard to makeout at all.
Excerpt: I have owned the Canon SX130IS Digital Camera for around a month now. The camera is fantastic! It takes very nice pictures, color is very true, the image stabilization, in my opinion, works well, and it is simple to use. In fact, I usually just leave it in the "Auto" mode because it automatically chooses the settings very well and takes great pictures.
Excerpt: I am still new to this camera, but i find it easy to use, none the less. It has some nice features and one not so nice feature too! I am totally satisfied with the camera but i would enjoy it a lot more if i wasn't going through batteries like crazy. Other than that, this is an awesome camera. The zoom on it is amazing! You have to try to take a bad picture to get one! I'm a happy camper with it, and you will be too.
Excerpt: We purchased this camera while we were vactioning in Orlando at Disney World last March. Our other digital camera (Sony) had Lens Shutter errors and wouldn't work. We found this SX130 on clearance at Walmart for $198.00 and saved our vacation picture taking! I love how sharp the pictures are, the quality of video recording, and how long my rechageable batteries last! I would HIGHLY recommend this camera to anyone!

Excerpt: Ive' seen this camera and love this camera so much! This is the camera that I am saving up for. I love the screen size. I seem to love Canon and Nikon cameras. There are other brands but out of all the brands I believe these two are the best. The pic quality is great.
