      Good Value - Compact-ish camera that takes good photos

      The PowerShot SX130 IS will not quite fit (comfortably) into a pocket, but its comfortable to hold, light enough it isn't distracting, provides a good zoom range and high quality photos. At its heart it is a good basic camera for using on holiday but it has got a few options that will let you go beyond the standard 'I've been here' holiday snap.

      One thing that really impressed me about this camera is it's ease of use. Of all of the digital cameras I have owned or used, this required the least time to get up and running. There are a few modes you may want to read up about in the manual, but for the most part this is a camera you look, zoom then take the photo. The screen on the back of the camera is clear and easy to see in most lighting conditions.

      The camera uses standard batteries, and while it's a very good idea to bring spares, the camera does not 'eat' them too quickly.

      I have a semi-pro DSLR which cost 5 times as much as the Powershot SX130 IS, but one of my best photos was taken with this camera. If you like to to a bit more than standard tourist photos has a Macro mode (it will take close-up photos, ie of flowers) which has delivered spectacularly good results.

      If I were to complain about this camera it would be that taking pictures in low-lighting is poorer than it should be given how well the camera performs otherwise. This is forgivable however, given the camera's relatively low price.
