    I first heard about the SX130is on August 19th- the same day I had decided that my final purchase decision would be the SX120is. After reading a few reviews, it had me convinced that this would be worth waiting for. I received my SX130is late this morning- and have to say, right from the box it was just amazing. Every time in the past when purchasing a new camera, it takes some adjusting and “breaking in” before fully great-quality pictures come, but with this one, literally from the first shot it has been wonderful. The HD video also records wonderfuly, and the sound is great as well- even with using all of the 48x digital zoom! The one “downside” to the video mode is that the image doesn’t auto-focus as you zoom in, at times you have to re-focus using the shutter just as you normally would when taking a picture, but I personally didn’t find that too annoying once I figured it out. The miniature and fisheye modes are a blast to use, and the smart-shutter mode (takes the photo when a smile is detected, without using the shutter) is neat too. The LCD is a nice big size, and has an auto-rotate for images in the playback mode, as well as an option to scroll through them when selecting. A fun fact which I also noticed is that it has a “screensaver,” which displays the time to save the screen (as a computer would). Although some might consider it a bit “bulky” compared to most compact point and shoots, the size is perfect for someone like me who has bigger hands, allowing for a decent grip and non-clumsy hold. Overall, I just absolutely LOVE this camera (which I why I already give it 5 stars, hands down). Definitely recomend this to anyone; is well worth the money!

    Was waiting for a review of this camera and the only one I saw was by the user on amazon.com. Got motivated and purchased it this morning and returned it by evening.

    Wanted to get a compact camera that can do 1080p with a larger display, which would be the two features that my next camera should have, to beat my current Canon Powershot TX1 (which has 720p video and very tiny display). Since, Canon has “disabled optical zooming during 1080p video recording” on all their compact cameras, I had to climb down from the 1080p requirement. On the second spec, the large display on this camera is nice.

    Here are my issues:

    1. The black body really looks cheap and fragile.

    2. The controls for manual adjustment is very difficult even for my small hand.

    3. I have to rotate the dial on top to choose between still shots and movie mode. In my TX1, the shutter button and the video recording buttons are separate and that makes switching between operations a breeze.

    4. The camera is far heavier than my TX1 and doesn’t feel comfortable for video recording.

    5. A camera with so many features, but no hard copy manual. It is not exactly a point and shoot model and NO MANUAL. You have to print it from the CD-ROM.

    6. Manual focus feature was new to me on a compact camera and I couldn’t get it to do what it claims. I could see the focusing distance bar change, but no change in the image focus.

    7. You have to MANUALLY pop the built-in flash every time you need the flash! Was this a requirement from the museums that ban flash photography?

    There are plenty of other features that are not there in my TX1, but they are not a necessity for me.

    I just received this camera and I’m so happy with this purchase. Wow, great pictures and easy to use. I’ve owned other Canon camers in the past and have enjoyed all the options it has for different photo settings. I have a bigger camera and I bought this one to carry with me for all the outings I do with the kids. It’s bigger than the tiny cameras out there, but still small enough to fit in your pocket. The fisheye effect is just too cool! I love the big display on the back. You won’t go wrong with this camera!

    I previously had the SX110 model and I loved that camera. I am loving the 130 just as much. The photos I get from this camera are amazing, and that’s on Auto mode. Loving the Fisheye and Miniature settings too. Of course the thing I love most is the optical zoom(on this model, it’s 12x). I also like that the camera takes AA batteries.

    I have a DSLR as well but this camera will be my go to camera, much like the 110 was. For $249, you get a lot.Like I said, you can use the Auto mode, but you can utilize manual settings once you start feeling more confident.

    I’m giving the SX 110 to my mom…

    I liked the Canon SX120IS but did not buy it because it could not zoom optically during videos and did not have HD video capability. I looked at other cameras from Panasonic and Sony but they had limitations as far as I was concerned.

    The SX130IS is great for the following reasons:

    - 12 X optical zoom

    - 12 MP picture resolution

    - Canon DIGIC IV picture processing capability

    - HD and standard video

    - Ability to optically zoom during video recording

    - SD memory cards (the most common)

    - AA batteries (use rechargeables)

    - Great photo quality

    - Reasonable price (I bought when it forst came out and pain $249)

    - Reasonable weight and size especially for a 12X zoom camera. It can easily fit in a case to carry on your belt

    - Many picture taking modes including Program, Manual, Av, Tv, Auto, special scenes, etc

    Any photographic product has trade offs but this is a camera that will satisify most users.

    I was looking for a new camera to replace my 4 year old canon a630, 8mp, 4x zoom before our vacation next month. I was going to go with the sx120is, but it did not have HD video like all the other cameras had on them. Will I use that much, maybe, maybe not, but I at least wanted that option since all the other new cameras have it. Then I found out why the sx120is was going down in price, to make way for the sx130is. I looked everywhere and no one had it in stock yet. Then amazon got it a couple days later and I ordered it. Right away I thought it looked great. Very nice, something to hold onto, unlike the new small size cameras-I just don’t like that they are so tiny. Love the big screen on the back. I thought I would miss not having a viewfinder and only using the rear display, but then i thought about it-I only use the display anyways on my camera and never the viewfinder! Sometimes the display looks grainy when not enough light, but after seeing the shot I just took, the pic was perfect. I like that it uses 2 AA batteries since I use rechargables-my other one used 4, so I have 2 extra for a backup now. I love how it zooms in on the face and the smile shutter is a neat trick. Have not played with the hd video yet, but I would have liked a mini-hdmi out of the camera. Also would like the flash to pop up on its own instead of saying on the screen to put the flash up. Other than that, there are so many controls, I’ll probably never use them all and mainly use it on auto, which is great! The 12 MP and 12x optical zoom is great. Just note the 4x digital zoom does not work in widescreen mode, but it never did on my other camera either. A great camera to get without paying the extra money for the D-SLR cameras.
