Canon PowerShot SX130 IS

  |   by DigitalCameraReview Staff

The PowerShot SX130 is a AA-powered 12x ultrazoom. It’s considerably larger than an ultracompact point-and-shoot, but it’s smaller than a 24x or 30x optical zoom ultrazoom heavyweight. It offers a 3.0-inch LCD, optical image stabilization and 720p HD video recording.

  • Pros

    • Good image quality
    • Reasonable price
    • Nice 720p HD video
  • Cons

    • Short alkaline battery life
    • Slower lens for class
    • Lengthy flash recycle time

Quick Take

The SX130 offers some logical upgrades to the SX120 like HD video, and despite weak battery life and a slower lens, it's a worthy competitor in the compact ultrazoom class.
