Featuring a 3 inch color LCD, a 12.1 MP sensor, DIGIC 4 image processor, 720p high definition movie mode and a 12x high powered, wide angle optical zoom with digital image stabilizer, the Canon SX130IS is a very user friendly, easy to use camera. Comprising of numerous functions the camera accomplishes well as a handy point-and-shoot, with over half the price of other high end cameras.

The 12.1 MP resolution guarantees crisp and vibrant photos which can be cropped without any risk of losing picture quality.

With the Smart Auto function the camera is really easy to use. This feature detects the most suitable shooting conditions for a desired scenario and automatically chooses the precise setting. There are 28 pre-defined settings. This ensures the best quality photos in every situation from a soccer match to a beach sunset.

The Canon Powershot SX130IS gives user the option to choose a myriad of options, from fisheye effects to setting a color accent which has the ability to isolate a user specified color. All this is possible due to the Special scene modes. The camera also performs extremely well in low light conditions.

One of the distinctive features of the Canon Powershot SX130IS is its 12x wide angle zoom, powerful enough to capture great shots regardless of the scenario.

The optical zoom lingers on to 48x digital zoom. At this point the camera crops out partial photo and then automatically incorporates the result back up to the original picture's pixel dimensions.

Usually the problem with cameras is that no matter how hard the user tries to keep it stable it always trembles faintly. The inbuilt mechanism of Canon Powershot SX130IS's optical image stabilization automatically senses this unsteady motion before and during the shooting of photograph and then alters the optical image accordingly so that it remains steadier during exposure. With this feature clear, un-blurred photos can be taken without the help of a tripod. The camera also features large bright high res 3 inch LCD which has night display for making it easy to view the screen in low light conditions.

Another fascinating function is the smile or wink detection which automatically shoots the picture whenever a wink or a smile is spotted.

Canon Powershot comes with the ability to shoot 720p high definition video with strong stereo sound. Unlike many other cameras while shooting a video it gives the option to fully use the powerful zoom function, to get excellent close-ups without dropping any quality. All other functions such as image stabilization, image effects, color swap and color accent are accessible in the video mode too. It also has many other fascinating effects such as the Miniature Effect which makes people look like tiny animated figures running around. It is a really amusing effect to when used in crowded places.

All in all the Canon SX130IS is a fantastic, user friendly camera that delivers best quality shots. For beginners it is the best choice as it is rather intelligent and simple enough to use. For professionals too it features a myriad of manual controls to tamper around with to get the best results.
