One of the newer digital cameras to come out of the best selling camera brand Canon in their PowerShot point-and-shoot camera lineup is the new Canon PowerShot SX130is digital point and shoot camera.
The features on this digital camera at first glance are similar to many other digital camera on the market today. It offers 12 megapixels for more than enough resolution to make even poster-sized prints, 12x optical zoom lens with high quality optics from Canon for crisp and clear photos and videos and full HD video recording at 720p. Power is provided by AA batteries.
But all these great features don’t add up to a hefty price tag. The Canon SX130is is a cheap and fun travel camera that, with a bit of shopping around, can be bought for much less than the MSRP of $249.00 – making the latest Canon point and shoot one of the better point and shoot digital cameras under $200 available today.
Just two AA batteries power the Canon SX130is and so allows you to travel with this camera without the worry and hassle of bringing along a separate battery charger as AA batteries are available to buy worldwide, so you never have to worry about different power requirements when traveling and shooting with this digital camera.
The lens on the Canon SX130is also is a perfect fit for traveling as the 12x focal length zoom range is more than enough to shoot both wide angle and telephoto shots with just one small camera that still fits into a pocket or purse with ease. Use the wide zoom for landscapes and travel scenes and use the telephoto lens zoom setting to get closer to detail or action when out exploring with the Canon SX130is.
