Canon PowerShot SX130 IS Review
For the full Canon PowerShot SX130 IS review, visit http //www.infosyncworld.com/reviews/digital-cameras/canon-powershot-sx130-is/11371.html There's no shroud of mystery draped over the fact that Canon is one of the leading rulers of the point-and-shoot market. In fact, we'd go so far as to tell you that you really can't get any better than a Canon if you're looking for a sub-$400 compact. Some would argue that Panasonic is #1, and rightfully so. Panasonic produces some of the best compacts as well. However, over the years we've spent reviewing digital cameras, it has always been an ongoing consensus that Canon is usually one step ahead of the competition. That's why it pains us to say that the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS is fatally flawed. Not by image quality, not by features, not by construction, interface, or body design. In those categories, the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS shines just like any other prized point-and-shoot we've seen to date. But our photographic adventures were frequently interrupted by battery changes. Far too frequently. In fact, we couldn't go more than a half hour without tossing in fresh AAs. A lithium ion battery might have cured this longevity issue, but it's too little too late. Sadly, the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS exhibited the worst battery life we've seen to date. If you've got an endless supply of AA Lithium photo batteries, then read on.
