My favorite point-and-shoot cameras are the ones that are made by Canon. The new Canon PowerShot ELPH 130IS costs $199 and has the ability to transfer photos and videos to your computers, smartphones, and tablets using an ad-hoc wireless network. The 130IS is compatible with the Canon CameraWindow app for Android and iOS so that you can add comments to images that you want to upload to Twitter or send via e-mail. The camera can also upload photos to Facebook with the ability to control where the images show up on the website.
The 130IS has a 16-megapixel sensor, a DIGIC 4 processor, 8x stabilized zoom lens with a 28mm wide-angle position, and a maximum aperture range of f/ 3.2-6.9. The LCD is 3 inches and 461k-dot that powers down after 8 seconds of inactivity to provide a boost of 30% in battery life. You can press any button to wake it back up instantly. The camera also has HD video capture and the same Smart Auto mode / scene modes that are in the previous models of the camera. The 130IS is expected to arrive in stores next month.
