Flash recycle time extremely slow

Robert, Amazon
3 April 2011
  • Summary: As you probably can tell from all of the other reviews, this camera takes great pictures and video as is typical of Canon cameras. The deal breaker for me, however, is the flash recycle time. If you take a flash photo you will need to wait a good 10 seconds before taking another one.

Was not happy with this camera

Rainey88, Amazon
3 April 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.

Great features and pictures, but returning due to battery life

Mike. R, Amazon
3 April 2011
  • 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.

Ditto About Battery Life >>> Recommend 2 Other Cameras Ranked #1 by Consumer in Dec. 2010 Issue

Sensei Rhee, Amazon

  • Summary: I read about the ups and downs of this particular camera before I purchased it. It is an excellent value for all the features included. I am familiar and comfortable with shooting in manual mode on SLRs so this feature was a big selling point for me.

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.

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,...

Surprised + Disappointed

C Wilson, Amazon
5 April 2011
  • Summary: This camera can take excellent photographs and has a very good natural light setting: it permits one to take photographs in dim light (compared with my Canon DSLR) which was a major advantage at times. I found the quality of the images to be very good.

Abysmal Battery Life

Stuart Mc, Amazon
5 April 2011
  • Summary: So long as you don't want to take a lot of pictures or don't mind carrying replacement batteries with you this is a very good camera but say you're at a party and want to take c100 flash photo's - I've found that you'll change the batteries at least once.

Disappointing

Mike Smith, Amazon
5 April 2011
  • Summary: I bought the Canon Powershot SX130 IS after reading the review in Which Magazine where it was described as 'one of the best compact cameras we have ever tested'. Initial impressions on unboxing the camera were very favourable.

Promises a lot at a bargain price, but video performance is poor

Joe Photo, Amazon
19 October 2010
  • Summary: The SX130 is much heavier and bulkier than the IXUS 800IS I currently have, but the reason I wanted to upgrade was for HD video and the ability to zoom/focus during videos. Still photos come out OK, if a bit soft. The photos have less noise compared to the IXUS 800IS.
