Canon PowerShot SX130IS Highlights
Shoot 720p HD video with stereo sound while using the optical zoom
The PowerShot SX130 IS is the perfect combination of still camera and extraordinary video maker. Videos are recorded in spectacularly detailed 720p HD with clear stereo sound. Better yet, you can now zoom in and out as your creativity demands, without losing a bit of the 720p HD resolution. Given the SX130 IS’s powerful 12x wide-angle optical zoom, this capability is especially meaningful.
12x wide-angle optical zoom with Optical Image Stabilizer
With precision engineering and decades of leadership in optics technology, Canon has created a bright, wide-angle lens that magnifies to an astonishing 12x. Moreover, it’s sized to fit the SX130 IS’s compact profile, performs at high speed, and keeps power consumption low.
Whether you’re at a sporting event, school play, or just out and about shooting, you’ll love how the SX130′s powerful wide-angle 12x optical zoom gets you up close fast and puts more image into every frame. And Canon’s Optical Image Stabilizer controls camera shake to ensure that throughout the zoom range, your images are steady and crystal clear.
Scene modes like Miniature Effect for Movie and Fisheye Effect offers creative options for videos and images
Explore your creativity! The PowerShot SX130 IS gives you fun, easy ways to play with perspective in your still images and videos, too.
Miniature Effect for Movies (also available for still images) enhances perspective to give whatever you’re shooting the fascinating look of a scene shot with miniature models. At the same time, selective frames are removed to enhance the effect when you play the scene back at 30 fps.
“Fisheye” lenses are favorites of professional photographers: their quirky, convex perspective gives a fun creative punch to shots of kids, pets and more. The SX130 IS creates a Fisheye Effect without the need to attach a special lens–simply activate the mode, choose from three levels (low, medium and high) and shoot!
