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.
- Good image quality
- Reasonable price
- Nice 720p HD video
- Short alkaline battery life
- Slower lens for class
- Lengthy flash recycle time
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.
