Canon PowerShot SX130 IS

 

This 12x optical zoom compact is family friendly in terms of shape, operation and, most importantly, price.

Long 12x zoom lens (28-336mm) ; Easy automatic operation ; Manual controls ; Great value

Fiddly controls ; Manually operated flash ; Bulky ; Uses AA batteries

Family friendly in terms of both operation and price, the SX130 IS will extend the photographic opportunities of anyone more used to happy snapping, without forcing them to confront a particularly steep learning curve like a compact system camera or...

Canon PowerShot SX130 IS review

Canon PowerShot SX130is

 

b>Canon has two ranges of small cameras, the Ixus very much a pocket offering and the PowerShot slightly larger and using ‘AA' batteries rather than the solid rechargable type. This in itself makes the overall camera larger and heavier.

For the real novice Smart Auto is available and for those slightly above Auto there are no less than 26 scene modes available

The Powershot compact with a powerful zoom? We find out…

An excellent all round camera that will appeal to a range of consumers. By going online and shopping around the SX130 can be purchased for a reasonable price.

Canon's SX130 IS crams a 12x optical zoom lens with image stabilisation into a portable, compact body – and all for under £180. Is this mid-range zoom compact an ultimate bargain? What Digital...

Capable zoom, manual focus ability, image stabilisation, 720p HD movie
