  • Summary: I was looking for a good replacement camera for one that had electronics failure. Our daughter has a previous version (SX130) of this camera and she has been pleased with it. I read the review on Amazon and noted the battery usage issue, but felt I could do well with some rechargeable batteries.

Great Photos, Mediocre Video

Dale, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great camera for taking photos; I have absolutely no complaints about the photo quality. However, the video function on this particular Canon model has problems with the focus function. While shooting video the camera periodically refocuses.

Canon SX130IS Experience

LJman, Amazon

  • Summary: Being long time Canon customers we purchased the SX130IS without much research. The camera performs well for basic still photography, our main purpose for it. It is packed with many useful features and with a short learning curve are easy to find and to use.

A little disappointed... expected too much?

Hillary Gardner, Amazon
1 March 2011
  • Summary: I should start off saying I am a professional and am used to shooting with a 5d and I had the older powershot 600 in my purse forever until my daughter broke the lens.

Great pictures and video overall, but the flash killed it for me

  • Summary: Overall, I enjoyed, and really wanted to like this camera, but I was primarily disappointed. The sx130is does a great job compared to its competitors in low light conditions. It seems like it is programmed to make the pictures too bright though.

If only it didn't have the lens fault

P G GINNELLY, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: This is an excellent camera and I have used these for some time. unfortunately Canon Powershot cameras have a design fault and the lense sticks. when this happens the camera is useless and apart from bashing it (as advised on many web sites) the cost of an actual repair is greater than the camera.

Always a bit out of focus

Mr. Stanley Prodinger, Amazon
21 July 2011
  • Summary: This camera is good except it seems to be a little out of focus most of the time. I had a cheaper Camera which I obtained from Lidle the supermarket chain it is only 5MPixels but it consitently produces superior pictures even though the camera is more than five years old and only cost around £50.
