A more general selection of unadjusted test shots are revealed on this page and next to act as an evaluation of the PowerShot SX130 IS in a variety of shooting conditions.
This close up macro shot with the camera at maximum wideangle setting has captured plenty of detail and some pleasingly realistic colours too, with little if any adjustment needed straight out of the camera.
A different texture with which to assess detail by, and another wideangle shot. You'll note that there's little if any barrel distortion evidenced in the brick work, and good edge to edge sharpness at this setting too, with none of the tell-tale fall off towards the corners usually seen from budget models.
Two examples of how the lens performs, at maximum wideangle and extreme telephoto, from the same vantage point. Though detail is unsurprisingly softer at maximum zoom, the SX130 IS has still held detail surprisingly well.
