Detailed Features

Ultra-slim design

With its slim, sleek metal body, the IXUS 130 attracts admiring glances wherever it’s used. Choose from four colour variations: Silver, Black, Orange and Pink.*

14.1 Megapixels

A resolution of 14.1 MP lets you make poster-size prints, or creatively crop images to perfection.

28mm wide-angle 4.0x zoom lens

A wide 28mm lens is perfect for capturing landscapes or group shots, while a 4.0x optical zoom lets you get closer to your subject. Canon’s optical Image Stabilizer counteracts image blur due to camera shake throughout the zoom range.

6.9 cm (2.7”) PureColor II G LCD

For easy framing, sharing, and menu navigation, the IXUS 130 features a 6.9 cm (2.7”) PureColor II G LCD – its tempered glass layer strengthens the surface and improves visibility. Optional on-screen Hints & Tips guide you through the camera’s features.

Effortless shooting

Smart Auto mode uses Scene Detection Technology to determine the shooting scene from subject brightness, contrast, distance and overall hue. The camera then selects the appropriate scene from a possible 22, and applies the best settings for optimum results. Smart Flash Exposure controls flash power and usage to ensure natural results in a variety of conditions.

Face Detection Technology

A suite of Face Detection technologies detects up to 35 faces in a scene and adjusts focus, exposure, flash settings and white balance – for optimal results with natural-looking skin tones.

High Definition movies

Create stunning HD 720p movies. Use the integrated HDMI port to easily connect to a compatible HDTV.

Smart Shutter

This versatile shooting mode lets you remotely trigger the shot by either winking, smiling or when an extra face enters the frame.

DIGIC 4

The DIGIC 4 processor delivers richly detailed, clean images, even at high ISO speeds. It drives exceptional processing speeds, responsive operation and Servo AF/AE – which tracks moving subjects to ensure they are in focus and correctly exposed when the shutter is fully pressed.

Creative shooting modes

Shooting modes include Low Light, which lets you capture the natural ambience of a scene without flash; Miniature Effect, which creates a dramatic model-like landscape; and Fish-eye Effect, which recreates the distortion of a fish-eye lens to add an interesting perspective to the final result.
