Pros:Easily stowed away in a bag, clear pictures, easy to use

Cons:My only complaint is that it uses batteries VERY fast.

The Bottom Line: If you're looking for an easy to use camera that takes good pictures at an economical price, buy this camera.


I recieved the Canon Powershot SX130 two years ago as a graduation gift from my dad. He paid a very resonable price ($170) and it was definitely money well spent.

I love how easy it is to use and how great the pictures come out. Its a good sized camera, not to heavy, but still easily stowed away in a bag. Ive used this camera at sporting events, weddings, the zoo, my sisters grauation, and even camping and hiking. Ive dropped it a few times, once down a hill and the camera wasnt even scratched---not that you should test that out yourself, but just as an example. Its definitely a take everywhere camera.

My only compaint is that it goes through batteries like no tomorrow. We recently took a trip to the zoo and two hours of taking pictures later, the camera was telling me that my batteries were about dead. I had just put brand new batteries in it before we left the house. I would of liked it if the camera was rechargeable, especially with all the features it has eating at those batteries.

My overall opinion on this camera is that it truely is a gem, one of the better cameras I own and I would most definitely buy it again without hesitation. Canon rarely disappoints!
