User Friendly - Quality Pictures - Great Price! Not Rocket Science!
22 April 2013
Summary: I bought this camera to replace the one I was using, which I dropped and broke. It truly is a point and click camera. Easy to use and takes excellent pictures. Great price too!! I tried an olympus point and shoot, but was not quite as user friendly nor did the pictures compare. I love, love, love this camera. You do not need an expensive camera to take good quality pictures.
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.
Summary: This model is by far the best I have ever owned for a compact zoom. I tried the Sx150 but did not like it at all. I used this camera on a recent vacation to Germany. We were driving at high speeds on the autobahn and I was still able to capture awesome clear pics in motion. The best part is the AA batteries used to power the camera. Never have to worry about having to charge the batteries especially in a foreign country. This Camera is truly a winner.
Summary: This is a very good camera. It has alot of features and its pretty easy to operate. It does have a "bigger" screen on the back to preview pictures after the photos are taken. The only dislike I have is the zoom button being on the top, I am not used to it as my other camera wasnt like that, however in time I am sure that I will grow to like it.
I am very pleased with my camera purchase and highly recommend it.

Summary: I love my new camera. It takes very high quality pictures for a great value. I have the option of auto or can play with settings which keeps photography fun. I do find that the auto setting is a smart choice in most cases. I also can push the zoom to the max and get crystal clear shots of not only the subject but the background comes out just as clear. The only slightly negative is it takes AA batteries and I am still searching for the best solution for battery life.
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: I love to take pictures and am shoping around for a new camera to take some pictures of my family and this one is the best in the market right now. I think it is good for quick pictures and when someone is moving it will take pcitures even though someone is moving. With 8 kids movign all tht ime or looking somwerehe else when you are tkaing a picture this is beneficalt and this quality of the pictures is awesome.
