Canon PowerShot SX130 IS review

 

The PowerShot SX130 IS is one of Canon's three compact megazooms for 2010. It shares some of the same features as its linemate, the SX210 IS , mainly semimanual and manual shooting modes and 720p HD movie capture. However, that model has a longer, 14x...

Excellent photo quality, features for its class; semimanual, manual shooting modes; uses AA-size batteries.

Slow shooting performance; bulky, heavy body.

The budget-friendly Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is a solid, compact megazoom for those who prize creative control and photo quality more than fast shooting performance or a small, lightweight design.

Canon PowerShot SX130 IS review

 

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS camera follows up the SX120 IS megazoom camera. It is a logical successor and lays in the trend of the Canon PowerShot megazoom cameras. The new Canon SX130IS is not very surprising; it is introduced with improved...

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is an attractively priced digital super zoom camera. You get a lot of camera in return, 12 Megapixels resolution and a completely stabilized 12x optical zoom lens. The specifications have not been spectacularly improved in...

Canon SX130 IS

 

The Canon SX130IS follows up last year's long-zoom SX120IS model. Compared to the SX120IS, Canon has again upped the resolution slightly, taking the SX130 from a 10-megapixel sensor to 12 megapixels, simultaneously increasing the sensor size slightly...

Larger sensor ; 3-inch LCD holds up well in the sun ; 12x optical zoom ; Good quality wide-angle lens ; Optical Image stabilization ; Easy mode for handing the camera to novices ; Full PASM exposure modes ; Well-sized controls ; Smart Shutter detects...

Slow shot-to-shot time and continuous mode ; Very slow flash recycle ; Sluggish autofocus ; Meager battery life with alkaline AAs (but decent battery life with NiMH rechargeables) ; Bulky body doesn't slip into a pocket ; In-camera help text too small...

The Canon PowerShot SX130IS is something of a mixed bag. It delivers the goods as far as image quality and feature set for the price are concerned. Not only does it offer a solid 12x optical zoom, image stabilized, wide-angle lens but its HD movie...

Canon SX130 IS Review

 

An MRP of Rs. 14,995 is a little excessive for the SX 130 IS. Even though it is a pretty good camera, with good results and a powerful zoom, we would like it to be priced at around Rs. 3,000 less.

Feature rich, with decent manual control, Very useful zoom range of 12x, Reasonably compact, Decent performer, good sharpness and fair highlighting

Slightly overpriced, Dials and controls on the rear are fiddly, and seem cheap, Low light performance is less than impressive older Canon cameras were much better

Canon PowerShot SX130 IS Review

 

Canon's SX130 IS is a worthy new competitor in the superzoom ranks, offering good still image and 720p HD video quality along with automatic or manual shooting options, packaged in a fairly compact and light body at an attractive price. Shutter lag is...

Good still image quality, Good 720p HD video quality, Good shutter lag and AF performance, Reasonable price
