Finding a no-nonsense, but capable digital camera is not as easy as it should be, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 is one such camera, available at a comparatively low price.
Its 12-megapixel sensor is a little larger, allowing for slightly greater light gathering ability, and its 28-336mm equivalent, image-stabilized lens provides the Canon SX130 user ample framing options for most common photographic situations. Exposure options range from full Manual to fully-automatic Easy mode, with a stack of Scene modes in-between. A nice big 3-inch LCD is accompanied by adult-sized controls, and the Canon SX130 offers some heft, helpful when handholding those long shots. The Canon SX130's flash is a little slow to recharge, and it isn't the fastest digital camera shot-to-shot, but we found its feature set and image quality compelling nonetheless. In short, the Canon SX130 IS offers a lot for a little money. Click here for the our review of the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS.
