The PowerShot ELPH 130 IS houses an 8x Optical Zoom lens in a sleek body, delivering outstanding optical performance and versatility. The zoom starts at 28mm wide-angle and extends to 224mm telephoto (35mm equivalent), covering a wide and highly useful range. The telephoto reach gives you the freedom to capture subjects from afar, while the 28mm wide-angle makes it easy to shoot sweeping landscapes, large groups of people and tall buildings.
I needed a shirt pocket camera & choice this one & glad I did. The optical image stabilization is unbelievable as I did a 3 second exposure hand held & there was NO blur! The 28 to 224 mm equivalent lens is nice range to have. The multitude of options is mind blowing, even has a fish-eye effect. My only complaint is the printed manual helps very little in the operation, You have to download the CD & then look on the computer to learn all it's features & that is NOT convenient, Canon should provide a cheat sheet as it takes a while to learn all it's functions...
