Powerful Compact Camera6/12/2012
Family friendly in terms of both operation and price, the Canon PowerShot 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 DSLR might. The full-ish complement of manual controls are there if you want them, for when experience and desire to experiment grows.
Overall, much better than average. Indoors, things get a bit hairier, as is to be expected. I got some good shots along with a number of not-so-good shots.
Simple controls; long zoom lens; shoots HD video Bad points Batteries ran down fairly quickly; shots at full zoom were a little soft
Very good image quality, hD video with stereo sound, manual settings in addition to auto modes.
Excellent image quality 12x optical zoom with Optical Image Stabilization is easy for handheld shooting 720p HD video captures excellent videos with stereo sound Smart auto. it's a very fair playoff between body size and zoom capability that will prove attractive to many.
The Canon PowerShot SX150 is a budget superzoom with a 12x stabilised optical zoom lens, a 14.1 Megapixel CCD sensor and a 3 inch LCD screen. Announced in August 2011 it replaces the PowerShot SX130 IS, adding 2 Megapixels to the sensor resolution, intelligent image stabilisation which adapts to the scene being photographed and minor control layout alterations. As well as Smart Auto and Easy Exposure modes the PowerShot SX150 IS is packed with easy to use features. These include Creative Filter effects, face detect AF and the Smart shutter scene mode.
I was looking for a good replacement camera for one that had electronics failure. Our daughter has a previous version (SX130) of this camera and she has been pleased with it. I read the review on Amazon and noted the battery usage issue, but felt I could do well with some rechargeable batteries. They have done OK. The quality of photos is what I wanted to have, and ordered accordingly. However, I was very disappointed with the clarity of about 30-40 percent of the pictures, taken with a wide variety of settings, according to the scenes I was shooting. I followed the directions sent with the camera, telling me I need to push the shutter button part way to allow the camera to pre-focus for a clear shot.
This is a great camera12/7/2010
This camera has functioned perfectly. If you plan on taking movies, be sure to get at least a 4GB memory card for it as in the full resolution mode it takes up 180MB per minute of recording time. The movies can be taken in two lesser resolution modes that use 90MB and 45MB per minute respectively. The camera files are in JPG format, a RAW format is not available.
