Canon PowerShot SX130 is curvy and proud of it

The lower end of the compact superzoom market may be crowded with slim and slender models, but the Canon PowerShot SX130 IS isn't bothering with a diet.

The Canon PowerShot SX130 IS has curves and it's proud of them. It's the newest entry to the lower end of Canon's superzoom camera range, offering a 12x zoom.

The 12-megapixel SX130 offers a selection of manual and automatic shooting modes, as well as special effects such as a fish-eye setting. It records stills and video to SD cards and supports the newest high-capacity SDXC cards.

The SX130 is the successor to the PowerShot SX120 IS. The relatively small zoom on these models is rivalled by the ever-more popular likes of the Panasonic TZ8, Samsung WB600 and Fujifilm F80EXR -- and Canon's own IXUS 1000 HS -- which are all much easier on the pocket. Size-wise, at least: pricing is a different story.
