Canon Powershot SX130 IS Digital Camera

  • Excerpt: Canon Powershot SX130 IS Digital Camera The Canon Powershot SX130 IS Digital Camera is a great camera. It is nice for anyone who wants to take professional pictures without paying professional money. It has fast speeds and easy controls. It is great for point and clicks or professional photographs. It is portable and stylish. It has a weak battery and slightly slower picture taking speeds than its predecessors.The flash recycle time is also lengthy.

PowerShot SX130 - decent camera, some nice features

  • Excerpt: I was pretty happy with my previous PowerShot, which lasted 4 years before being dropped by my 2 year old son, so we decided to replace it with another PowerShot.  I would have rather taken a jump up to a digital SLR, but that wasn't in the budget right now so I was pretty happy just replacing my old PowerShot and I assumed that this one would be comparable. In many ways this is the same or better as my previous camera.

  • 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. They have done OK. The quality of photos is what I wanted to have, and ordered accordingly.

Great Photos, Mediocre Video

  • 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. It does it outdoors, in normal indoor light, while shooting my young kids moving around, while shooting something still like a piece of graph paper taped to the wall or a plant, etc.

  • Summary: I have had many Canon cameras and this replaces one I dropped and broke recently (a PowerShot A2000 IS).
  • Pros: Picture quality
  • Cons: Size and location of on/off button. Also, minimal finger grip.

  • Excerpt: It is a great camera but I go through batteries almost weekly. I use my camera maybe 2-4 hours per week and the it drains the battery weekly. Not sure if this is a defect or some other issue but I think I have paid more in batteries than I have for the camera.

Canon SX130IS Experience

LJman, Amazon
14 March 2011
  • 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. Pictures are sharp, however the image stabilization is not as effective as we thought it would be, so use a tripod especially when zooming out or in low light situations.

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. I researched quite a bit as to a new "purse" camera (just shots of my daughter, trips with friends, etc) when I don't want to lug around my pro camera. I was expecting at the least the images to be in focus. It is IS after all. In "auto" mode is the worst...

Good camera for learning.

  • Summary: The SX130 is great for someone who wants to take good pictures, explore the manual settings similar to an SLR, and learn how to take good pictures.
  • Pros: Good pictures. AA batteries. Inexpensive. Easy to use.
  • Cons: Slow, but acceptable, performance. Changing of settings can sometimes be awkward.
