Bought this camera to have in my pocket for an upcoming trip instead of lugging around my dslr. It is very easy to use, back screen is large and the size is perfect. It is smaller than an iphone so I hardly notice it in my pocket. Of course picture quality is fine but not dslr quality but I knew that when I bought it.

Nice Small Camera

Nice for snap shots, I used it while skiing. Small so it fit into pocket of my ski jacket and took nice photos. Definitely not a fast camera but for the price worth...Read complete review

    I bought this as a gift for someone who struggles with which side of the camera points to the subject! Great purchase. Easy to use. Good point and shoot quality.

    A perfect gift for a lady. It's elegant & has great features such as rechargeable internal battery, zoom, wifi, big display (although the display color is heavily biased toward cream-brown)!

    I like the ease of this camera. Pretty nice zoom and easy access to the video option unlike many others that require several steps to capture the moment. I bought the red one because I thought it's make it easier to find when I set it down.

      Dispite of the headline above, it's an excellent compact camera. It would be perfect if the charge could be easier.

      Software that comes with the camera is poor. Downloading pictures is awkward at best and the software doesn't allow much flexibility when choosing what directory you want to use. Very poor!

        Love my new camera!
        It's simple to use and takes great photos.
        I'm not an expert, just wanted to document the hijinks of our two-year old son and his accomplices, known as our dogs.
        Also, B&H is fantastic. Easy buying experience and super-fast shipping.

        Comments about PowerShot ELPH 130 IS (Gray):

        Compact enough that I can carry it with me in my jacket. Inexpensive enough that I don't worry about it like I worry about my digital SLR. Works great for traveling.

        There's a lag between pictures, but I don't think it's outrageous. Just something I have to get used to, since my Digital SLR's shutter is quick.

        The video ability is a plus I didn't intend on using. But it comes in handy!

          On a recent trip to NYC I didn't want bring my big DSLR so I purchased the Canon Powershot and was more than pleased with everything about the camera. It is so easy to use and fit right into my coat pocket for easy access. The zoom is excellent on this product also. You won't be disappointed with purchasing this camera!!
