It seems to be a nice camera but what is if you compare it to the ixus 95?
I heard in programm mode using Auto Iso it chooses very high Iso. Is that just while not using the flash or always and is it a big problem (for a pointandshoot camera)

A very nice little camera, but a very poor ‘manual’- no index, no pictures of the icons, with explanation, on one page, so as a result, in order to learn what each one means, I have to trawl through every page until I find it.(I still haven’t found instruction on the self-timer). I’m just lucky to have a photgrapher husband.  Please, Canon, ask your manual designer to give it to a non-photographic person to vet before you publish!

I recently purchased the IXUS130. The camera is very compact (Allmost the size of a bar style mobile phone), handy and takes great pictures. The only problem I see is the date and time imprint. I personally dont like the size and color and the location of it. I am not sure if you all have had similar experiences. The character size is too big, the color is too flashy, I personally prefer a white. The imprint is way away from the edges, so most of the time it is very close to the subject.
Is there a way to change this. Change the character size to a smaller one, change the color to while and change the loaction to a corner of your choice and closer to the edges ? If you know ways to do it, please let me know.

I’d like to ask whether this camera is good on low light conditions/indoor/nightime photography? the last time i bought a canon the pictures were bad…

Hi Eileen

Pictures on AUTO in night/indoors/low light dont come very well. Indoor pictures under candecent bulb light turn out too yellowish. However the same scene with program mode have a totally different effect and pictures do come good.
I would suggest to use the various program modes when shooding in low light/night/indoors.

Hi Sujay,
Thanks for answering!
While shooting in low light conditions, should I be using a higher ISO? would that create a lot of noise?

Hi Eileen

I havent tried using higher ISO. Actually, I havent yet tried the manual oprtions.

To Eileen

I still havent yet tried the manual settings :)

Sunu> I am not sure if pausing during video recording is possible.

Hi Dew,
I agree with Sujay, this camera doesn’t come good in low light under Auto Mode. I have yet to buy this camera but i used one similar to this and the results are not very good either.

Leo > I have noticed th blue line while recording against bright light, but when you play back the video the line does not appear. Can you confirm this ?

Dew > I love the video quality on the 130 and also the day time stills. I am happy with the clarity and quality. Woudn’t you agree Eileen ?

Night time requires some hands on and should be used in P mode not Auto for better results.

I recieved this camera for Christmas 2010. I love it!! It alows me to take great pictures and videos. The only thing I can not do is change the colors of the pictures to negatives and stuff like that like I could with other digital cameras. Other than that, I love it and I am so very happy I have it!!!

When I switch on my camera the following message appears: ‘Memory card locked’ and I am unable to take photos, though I am able to view existing photos within the camera.  I have replaced the memory card but am still getting same message. How do I fix this problem?
