Back with Canon,
This review is from: Canon PowerShot SX130 IS Digital Camera (12.1 Megapixel, 12x Zoom, 3.0 inch LCD Screen) (Electronics)
I used to own a Canon digital camera many years ago and only moved to another manufacturer because it was time to upgrade. I have owned a Panasonic and a Samsung and now decided to go back to Canon. I am glad I did. After a lot of research on mid priced compact cameras with decent optical zooms I shortlisted this camera along with the Sony DSCH55, the Canon SX210 and a Fuji fx80exr all with similar spec and price. After reading a lot of reviews and weighing up the ease of use I opted for the Canon SX130 IS - which is a fairly new model from Canon. I have had the camera only for a few days but I can safely say I think I made the right choice for what I need the camera for i.e. family holidays and a keen amatuer photographer. No qualms about recommending this camera to other like minded people. I would recommend getting high powered rechargeable nimh AA batteries and a largish SDHC card (at least 4Gb, I purchased a Transcend class 10 8Gb card). Looking forward to taking some good quality photos and HD video on my forthcoming holiday.
