It's ok, but I wish my husband bought me the Nikon instead.

  • Summary: I would not recommend this camera to anyone mainly because of the battery life. It is terrible! You cannot take black and white photos. The flash and photos lag.
  • Pros: Good photos of foliage. Zoom good for shoots of roses. Landscapes are nice. Video great!
  • Cons: Battery life horrible! Black and white is NOT black and white. Should have bought Nikon!

Was not happy with this camera

Rainey88, Amazon
2 January 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this camera to use with my 8 month old and the upcoming holidays. I had read the reviews and everyone seemed to be happy with the camera (with the exception of using AA batteries, which didn't bother me). I could not be less satisfied. First of all, only about 2 of every 10 pictures came out clear and focused. This was using auto mode and, yes, holding the button halfway to allow the camera to focus).

Great features and pictures, but returning due to battery life

Mike. R "Value Consumer", Amazon
23 October 2010
  • Summary: I've been a fan of Canon cameras for years. I currently have 5 of them, with my "best" one being an older S3 IS. The S3 takes awesome pictures but is a bit bulky, so I wanted to try this new camera. Well, I love the picture quality, features, controls, weight, construction and especially the HD video. However, I have to return it. This camera goes through a set of Duracell batteries about every 50 shots.

Dust in the lens and in the rear LCD screen

Ray Paquette, Amazon
24 July 2012
  • Summary: I've had this camera for a little over a year and I'm not totally satisfied with this model. Pictures seem to wash out in low light. My biggest peeve is the dust trapped inside the lens and LCD screen. I've had a few digital cameras in the past (all Canon) and this is the first time I've come across this issue. I'm just hoping that Canon will fix this issue with the newer models of this type.

poor quality

MBE, Amazon
7 June 2012
  • Summary: I had this camera for a year and finally gave up and had to buy another one; Picture quality - average; 90% of my pictures were blury - tried different modes - nothing helped; This camera has very big delay- about 3-4 sec before picture is done - and it is almost impossible to shoot good pictures, especially with small kids; last year was a year of lost oppotunities - lots of precious moments were gone forever.

CANON SX130IS is inferior to older cameras

Brian Graham, Amazon
9 July 2011
  • Summary: My Canon A700 6 mp with a viewfinder worked perfectly until it was stolen. The next camera had to be Canon, higher megapixels and using AA batteries. The Canon SX130IS 12.1 MP does not have a viewfinder; the LCD screen is washed out in sunlight; batteries absolutely must be Sanyo enloop NI-MH. Other batteries will be drained in just a few minutes,provided they even have enough current to start the camera.
