Answer:
"Falling apart" is rather vague but I'm on my third "130", the first eventually two developing lens problems - not opening up fully, not zooming out fully. This is what happens when one uses a camera a lot in the outdoors, especially with fine dust and salt air (I live on the CA coast) being almost constant factors. B… see more "Falling apart" is rather vague but I'm on my third "130", the first eventually two developing lens problems - not opening up fully, not zooming out fully. This is what happens when one uses a camera a lot in the outdoors, especially with fine dust and salt air (I live on the CA coast) being almost constant factors. But I have liked this camera so much - with its two AA battery set-up - that I have ordered, through Amazon, two "like new" replacements (both in the $75-$100 range, about the same cost, or less even, as a cleaning/repair these days). You could buy one of the newer models in this series as I believe a "150" and a "170" came out more recently. You could look at the specs to see any differences - no doubt the newer models have more megapixel at the highest setting, like maybe 16mp instead of max of 12mp with the "130". (I have done most of my shooting at the much lower M2 setting, which is 2mp, 1600x1200 to conserve my Rayovac rechargeable batteries and because I only email phos and do digital album folders, no large prints.) By the way, I believe the "170" (or maybe "160"?) switched from two AAs to the more common flat rechargeable. Finally, if you find that you have to keep resetting the date/time, that is because your separate little battery, the CR1220, that powers that function, needs replacing. I have seen that question/problem with this camera come up on this Amazon forum before. (You can get a replacement at Walmart, some jewelry stores, some camera stores for about $5.) I love both the Canon Elph series and the PowerShot series but heavily used cameras of any brand develop problems. Consider buying an extended warranty on the next Canon, if you, buy new! Good luck with your photography.... see less "Falling apart" is rather vague but I'm on my third "130", the first eventually two developing lens problems - not opening up fully, not zooming out fully.

Answer:
Just pop the flash on top up and the camera takes care of the rest. It may slow the time between photos as the capacitor recharges. Get the manual on line for free. (http://www.manualslib.com/manual/24500/Canon-Powershot-Sx130-Is.html)

Answer:
What you can do is get a memory card reader that plugs right into your computer (http://www.amazon.com/Support-Rocketek-Reader-Writer-memory/dp/B00IX9ZDKC/ref=pd_sim_pc_18?ie=UTF8&refRID=0XKMBQ66E20SN7X902AG) So all you have to do is take the memory card out, place in this little thing and there are your pictures :) Good Luck!

Answer:
When I had this camera I used duracell rechargeable batteries. The package and charger only cost about $25 and comes with 4 batteries this allows you to have an extra set ready and they last at-least 2 hours each pair. Hope that helps!

Answer:
The CR1220 battery affects the date/time ONLY, and will have nothing to do with taking pictures. (In fact, you can operate the camera without the CR1220 battery in the camera at all). The operating batteries for the picture taking are double A, (AA), batteries and as they weaken your pictures will start to show a lag… see more The CR1220 battery affects the date/time ONLY, and will have nothing to do with taking pictures. (In fact, you can operate the camera without the CR1220 battery in the camera at all). The operating batteries for the picture taking are double A, (AA), batteries and as they weaken your pictures will start to show a lag time. I immediately replaced the batteries that came with the camera and put in 2 AA Lithium batteries and I have taken over 300 pictures so far and I haven't had to change the batteries yet, so I believe that is where your problem with "lag time" is. Try replacing the AA batteries and I believe that will solve your problem. NOTE: I have shot all my pictures on the "AUTO" setting. see less The CR1220 battery affects the date/time ONLY, and will have nothing to do with taking pictures.

Your auxiliary battery needs replacing. Pull the dime-sized disk out of the camera's side - it is the black tab marked "CR1220".
