As ever, in order to deliver a compact that is as compact as possible, the handgrip on the SX IS has been compromised. The ridge above the lens houses a pop up flash instead, which does have the bonus of reducing red-eye as the flash is further from the lens. The photographer is thus reliant on the fixed 3-inch, k-dot screen for framing and reviewing all images.
We found this adequate for the purpose, but using the camera across several dull wintry days it gave the impression of our exposures being brighter than they actually were, once downloaded to the desktop. The headline feature of that bigger than average zoom is controlled by a lever that encircles the shutter release button on the top plate, both of which are subtly angled forward so making for more comfortable operation when hand-holding the camera.
Unlike some of its competitors, such as the 10x zoom Casio EX-H20G, the full extent of the lens reach can happily be utilised when recording video, to take in both wide angle and close up framing.
As mentioned in our introduction, we would have preferred to have seen a dedicated record button featured where the playback button is located top right of the camera back.
As it is, video has to be first selected on the shooting mode dial and then recording begins and ends with subsequent presses of the shutter release button. Other smart features include the camera adjusting flash intensity dependent on prevailing light conditions, and firing the shutter when detecting a smile or wink — useful for those family portraits.
A press of the top-mounted tapering power switch and the SX IS readies itself for the first shot in just under two seconds, which is reasonably quick for its class. The lens barrel extends from its housing slightly proud of the body to full wideangle setting, whilst the back screen blinks into life with a cute chirping noise.
Because this camera is aimed at the less experienced user, capture options here are limited to JPEG stills, written to SD media card with support for the high capacity SDXC newly offered this time around. Do so and a full 12 megapixel Large, Fine quality, least compression JPEG is written to memory in just over two seconds, screen briefly blacking out before freezing to briefly display the captured still.
Toggle the zoom lever that surrounds the shutter release button and the optical zoom moves rather slowly and deliberately through its range, a process taking around three and a half seconds, sound-tracked all the while by a low mechanical buzz. Again, we found this implementation rather fiddly and had to scroll very gingerly to effect change to the manual focus slide rule on the right of the screen, a central portion of the screen showing an enlarged portion of your intended subject to help determine focus more accurately.
In terms of picture quality we were pleasantly surprised with the results we got from the SX IS. With colours veering toward warm straight out of the camera, images avoided looking too flat, even under dull, grey wintry skies. At least we encountered commendably little in the way of barrel distortion at extreme wide angle, and sharpness is well maintained edge to edge. Pixel fringing, although visible under close inspection, is kept well under warps for the most part.
Used sparingly they can in fact become an additional creative tool rather than just a gimmick. The full-ish complement of manual controls are there if you want them, for when experience and desire to experiment grows. The use of AA batteries is also something to bear in mind, though this can be an advantage as much as a hindrance.
Though detail is unsurprisingly softer at maximum zoom, the SX IS has still held detail surprisingly well. The portion of the image in focus is narrowed to a central band, the surrounding blur giving it an other-worldly model village appearance. The effect works subtly well and avoids appearing overblown. The overall shot is a bit flat and lacking in contrast which can be improved with a little judicious photo editing of course, so not a deal breaker in any event.

Canon PowerShot SX130 IS User Manual
The SX IS has 28 shooting modes including Smart Auto and Easy Mode for complete beginners and full manual control for more experienced photographers. Though like its forebear the SX IS is chunky compared with the average point and shoot, it is still smaller than the typical super-zoom or bridge camera pitched at enthusiasts, although the likes of the Panasonic DMC-TZ10 and Samsung WB are actually smaller whilst offering a bigger zoom. There are no higher-end features here such as a hotshoe for additional flash - merely one of the pop-up variety - while power is again provided by two standard alkaline AA batteries that slot into the base of the handgrip, as do the SD, SDHC and newly-supported SDXC memory cards. Those two AAs also add weight and, as we found with the SX, generally the camera feels substantial when gripped in the palm. Continuing around the slight curve of the handgrip we find a loop for attaching the supplied wrist strap and a sturdy pull-open plastic cover for the AV out, DC in and USB ports. The top of the SX is likewise virtually identical to its predecessor. Front Top The Smart auto mode has been upgraded and now automatically chooses from 28 different scenes.
