Excerpt: I bought SX130IS last year. With clear requirements : 1. Apurture priority Mode 2. AA batteries $200 budget I had shortlisted Fujifilm S2950 and SX130IS. Fujifilm had higher zoom and higher megapix and bridge body. After handling I found that compact body made it easy to carry around and IS felt better since its in lens hence live view is also stabilized. Manual mode is bonus. If you are thinking to learn about photography this is handy tool.
Excerpt: I am still new to this camera, but i find it easy to use, none the less. It has some nice features and one not so nice feature too! I am totally satisfied with the camera but i would enjoy it a lot more if i wasn't going through batteries like crazy. Other than that, this is an awesome camera. The zoom on it is amazing! You have to try to take a bad picture to get one! I'm a happy camper with it, and you will be too.
Excerpt: Ive' seen this camera and love this camera so much! This is the camera that I am saving up for. I love the screen size. I seem to love Canon and Nikon cameras. There are other brands but out of all the brands I believe these two are the best. The pic quality is great.
This camera takes great still pictures and clear videos!

Excerpt: This camera has great picture quality! You will get great still photos from this camera. The image quality is extremely clear and distinct. The video also shoots excellent! I was able to make a whole video for a school project using this camera. My only complaint would be the battery life and the action photos. The camera uses double A batteries so make sure you have backups.
Excerpt: I purchased this camera 3 months ago and have been very pleased with it so far. I was replacing a 3 year old PowerShot S3, so my comparisons are all to that. Obviously, the technology for digital cameras has improved greatly in the past 3 years, so my expectations were high, and so far this camera has met most of them. I like the large display screen, and not having to deal with a lens cap anymore. As others have mentioned it is a bit bulkier than many other pocket...
Excerpt: I actually have the camera above this. PowerShot SX30 IS I have just recently purchased this camera and so far I LOVE IT! I have had this for about two months. I needed to replace a camera that I had broken and loved so it took me a little bit to decide what I wanted to spend my money on and how much I was willing to spend.
Excerpt: This was a great Christmas present I received this year! I was suprised to get it, but even more impressed with the specs of the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS Digital Camera and the amazing pictures it takes. Some of my favorite features include the 12x optical zoom that allow for great photo taking from a distance. Also this camera allows for 720p HD video which look great when you view it. This also has a 12.1 mp resolution which is great for most pictures.
Excerpt: I've had the Canon Powershot SX130 for about four months now. Previous to this, I'd been looking for a quality manual camera that can take good photos and also a good HD video mode. I think that this camera nicely suits my needs. It's not great, but then again, I'm pretty picky. The bulky size is a little annoying at times, it's hard to put in a pocket so it's not that compact but it's no problem fitting in a backpack.
