As well as being compared against other travel zooms, the Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS is also often compared to compacts, super zooms, ultra compacts and digicams. The Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS's top rivals come from Canon (such as the PowerShot ELPH 170 IS and the ELPH 300 HS) and Sony (such as the Cyber-shot DSC-W370 and the Cyber-shot DSC-W670)

compared toTravel zoom competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Canon ELPH 130 IS compared to other travel zoom competitors include: it is much smaller (super compact (95×56×21 mm) vs compact (106×59×33 mm)), is thinner (0.8" vs 1.3") and is slightly lighter (133 g vs 215 g).

However, on average it has a slightly narrower wide angle lens (28 mm vs 25 mm), doesn't have a built-in GPS, slightly lower maximum light sensitivity (1,600 ISO vs 3,200 ISO), doesn't shoot as fast continuously (0.8 fps vs 6.2 fps) and has a CCD-family sensor (CCD vs CMOS).
