The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS Digital Camera also features Canon’s integrated Optical Image Stabilizer that offers a three-stop advantage, making it easier to take great shots in low light with long exposures, and reducing the blur associated with camera-shake when shooting distant subjects at the telephoto end of the zoom.

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS Digital Camera also offers a range of intelligent shooting features and creative modes. With Easy Mode, the camera becomes the perfect point-and-shoot, with most buttons disabled and icons removed from the screen to make it easier to compose and capture the best possible shot, without worrying about settings.

Besides, Smart Flash Exposure function controls flash levels according to shooting conditions, providing the right amount of flash to ensure perfectly exposed shots in all situations, from dimly lit rooms to bright sunlight.

In addition, Blink detection function also warns the user when one of the subjects has their eyes closed, allowing a better image to be shot.
The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS Digital Camera also features a range of creative modes to add a new dimension to photos without requiring additional post-production. Miniature Effect is available in both movie and still image capture, mimicking the effects of a tilt-shift lens to give subjects a model-like profile while Fish-eye Effect replicates the distortion of a fish-eye lens, adding a new angle to portrait and landscape shots. Then there is a Super Vivid function that boosts colour saturation, while Poster Effect features creates a more retro feel to images, allowing users to make their photos really stand out from the crowd.
