  • Excerpt: I bought the sx130is because i was disappointed by the IQ from my former point 'n shoot.Shure, the sx is bulky and not the most stylish cam on the globe, but - except of the sluggish flash recycling time - it delivers an amazing Image Quality, an easy 2 use Interface, lot's of bells and whistles and...

Good Picture Quality

Guangtian L., Newegg
18 September 2011
  • Summary: We learned the battery lesson after threw away many regular AA with deep disappointed feeling to Canon and Newegg, but finally find out why and how to solve after search on internet, Newegg must have a USAGE (NOT) RECOMMENDATION section to guide people wisely use products before they tried to return...
  • Pros: Picture taken very satisfied. White balance make you easily take a bright picture in low light environment. Auto mode or auto flash mode just like "Canon Digital Shooting for Dummy". You may have to hold the "Take" button during/after took a picture in order not blur or occur any problem because ...
  • Cons: Battery problem with regular alkaline AA, sucks to end quickly, but long lasting with NiMH rechargeable AA if you insert it in camera right after recharge completed. The regular recharge NiMH AA will self-discharge while storage on/not on charger. Sanyo Eneloop rechargeable AA will be final solut...

as advertised

G T., Newegg
13 May 2011
  • Summary: It was between this model or the G12, $$ won. I actually found this camera $50.00 cheaper elsewhere but shipping and order fullfillment was nowhere near the quality of NewEgg.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, plenty of features/ options/ shooting modes, ease of operation
  • Cons: Slow recharge after flash, eats batteries. Need QuickTime to view movies (.mov format)

awesome camera so far

Anonymous, Newegg
2 May 2011
  • Summary: Worth every penny if you're looking for a good camera but cant or wont shell out for a dslr.
  • Pros: for a non dslr camera you wont find much better. lightweight, solid feel and great features. though some may find it to be a con, it runs off of two AA batteries but i prefer them as they're cheaper and easier to change out then having spare lithium ion batteries which are $$$.
  • Cons: Flash recharge! Several seconds after you take a picture with the flash its ready to take another. I personally dont find it to be a con as i'm not the type to need that kind of speed but others might. Only reason I didnt give this camera 5 eggs.

Camera = Love

Kelvin S., Newegg
10 April 2011
  • Summary: Bought it at Best Buy for little less than here (didn't see it on newegg until now) .. Reason I bought camera was the zoom and stabilizer (on lens) .. Have yet to test it out going to local concerts for friends to record / photograph but I'm sure I won't be too disappointed.
  • Pros: Love it Love it Love it... I went from a Sony DSC W230 to this camera and loved it... Pros: Excellent picture quality took it out for test drive for first time today and went out to take pictures of animals outside at a lake and with 48x zoom (max) the pictures came out perfect! Doesn't look grai...
  • Cons: Battery! 2 AA - don't like this but what can I do cept buy rechargeable spares.. Little heavy and screen abit close to the buttons on the side but that's ok

Fragile

Thomas B., Newegg
4 April 2011
  • Summary: Price vs. quality of image makes this model a winner. Just don't drop it.
  • Pros: Very good quality images at a budget price. Potentially professional results depending on lighting and processing software. "Super zoom" (12x) point and shoot. Very good depth, color and clarity. Purple fringe on high contrast images is virtually non-existent.
  • Cons: Plastic lens cover is very fragile. If you purchase this camera, it would be a good idea to buy a case for it and keep it tethered to your body. I dropped this camera one time from 3 feet and had to replace it. (It wasn't cheap)

SX130IS Cannon Powershot

Dianne Teichrieb, Amazon
3 April 2011
  • Summary: Once I take the time to review & understand more features about the SX130IS, I know we will become inseparable. This camera is a huge improvement over my previous point & shoots. It's light weight & works as well as the bigger cameras I've used in the past.
