Be Sure.
So Amazingly
Close.
Your best friend’s smile. The vast
expanse of a white sandy beach. The
camera's 38-130mm (f/5.6-12.5) 3.4x
Zoom Lens will take you from sweeping
wide-angle to intimate telephoto.
A Smarter Focus.
Capture every moment with
perfect precision – automatically. The
passive 3-point AIAF reads the scene at
three different points for ultra-accuracy
– even if your subject is off-center.
Fashionably
Slender.
A zoom that gets you close –
really close.
Here's a camera that will feel like it
was made for you alone. Ultra-compact,
its sculpted contours conform to
your hand – perfectly. And its gleaming
aluminum body radiates a style that
brilliantly reflects your own.
As Quick As
You Are.
Life moves fast, and your camera
should, too. With a Real Time Shutter
Release that virtually eliminates shutter
lag (just 0.03 seconds) you’ll never
miss a shot.
Strike a pose.
Capture a moment.
Absolutely
Brilliant.
Low light or backlight, the built-in
automatic 7-mode Light Guide Zoom
Flash provides stellar results, and the
Red-Eye Reduction feature keeps eyes
looking bright and natural.
Create a Style.
Nobody shoots exactly like you do. So
the Sure Shot 130u has five built-in
Custom Functions to let you create and
store your own individual settings. Now,
you can do things your own way.

Focus your attention – 3 Point Smart Autofocus
To keep everything sharp as you zoom, the Sure Shot 130u switches between seven focusing points in three separate stages according

wants to focus all the attention on a
single subject, select Center Point AF.
It gives you the greater precision you
need to express your big idea. The
results will amaze you and impress
others. Prepare yourself for welldeserved compliments.

Exquisitely sensitive – Exposure Control
In bright light, back light or shadow – indoors or out, the ingenious
16-Zone Metering Sensor automatically calculates the right exposure
for your pictures. So you’ll get
AE SENSOR
perfectly illuminated images,
shot after shot. And all you
AF SENSOR
have to do is push the button.
Amazing!
For those times your creativity demands it, there’s
Manual Exposure
Compensation. With it, you can
override the 130u’s automatic
settings to realize your own
individual vision. For darker,
moodier exposures choose the -1.5 EV
-1.5 EV setting. Or to lighten
±0 EV
your shot, set the camera to +1.5 EV.
+1.5 EV
It’s your kind of easy – Easy Operation
The Sure Shot 130u’s zoom lens will take you from sweeping wideangle to intimate telephoto in about 2.5 seconds. Simply touch the
zoom button. No stress. Just great pictures every time.
Look through the Real-Image Viewfinder. You'll immediately see
how its big, bright design makes it simple to compose the lively, personal pictures you'll be proud to show. For comfort, you can set the
built-in Dioptric Adjustment Mechanism from -2.5 to +0.5 so you can
shoot without your prescription eyeglasses. A thoughtful touch.
Sure Shot 130u Caption Model
Sometimes your pictures need the right words. So Canon also offers
the Sure Shot 130u in a Caption model. It personalizes your pictures with
any of five phrases – I LOVE YOU,
THANK YOU!, SEASON'S GREETING,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY and CONGRATULATIONS – in five languages: English,
French, German, Spanish and
Japanese. Or simply imprint the date
and time. You decide.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY
Just because you're the photographer doesn't mean you have to be left out. The Sure Shot 130u
Caption is compatible with the optional Remote Controller RC-5 that
lets you get in the shot – without racing to beat a self-timer. So you
can comfortably take the picture – from up to 16.4 feet away.
