We think you might also be interested in some of the other cameras which support Wi-Fi currently available including because of its better review score, the Samsung 150F.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Canon 135 does not support Full HD video. Most of the other medium megapixel cameras that have been available for a comparable time to this digital camera also do not support Full HD video.

It is worth considering alternative cameras which also support Full HD video including the SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, or the DSC-WX80 both from Sony or the Casio EX-ZR400.

1280 X 720 Pixels Video Resolution

The Canon 135 supports a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. That's over three times the video resolution of a 640 x 480 pixels digital camera, which is the most frequently found video resolution supported by digital cameras that were released around the same time as this camera. 640 x 480 pixels is also supported by this digital camera. A video resolution of 1280 x 720 is classified as HD and TVs supporting this resolution are referred to as "HD Ready". However the resolution is not as detailed as Full HD (1920 x 1080). The worst video resolution of all medium megapixel cameras that were released more than two years ago is 320 x 120 pixels and the best is 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Lens System

Average Digital Zoom

At 4 times zoom factor, the Canon 135 has a fairly average digital zoom compared to most of the other comparable spec cameras that are a similar age to this camera.

We compared all the other 4x digital zoom digital cameras to this digital camera and we think because of its better review score, the Nikon L120 is also worth considering.

If this Canon camera digital zoom is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the SeaLife DC1400 Pro Duo (5x) which also has a higher rating.

Average Optical Zoom

At 8 times zoom factor, the Canon 135 has a pretty standard optical zoom compared to most of the other medium megapixel cameras that have been around for a comparable time to this digital camera.

We compared all the other 8x optical zoom cameras to this camera and we think the Canon A4000 IS which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this camera optical zoom is too small for you then you might want to look at the Panasonic DMC-SZ9 (10x) which is also higher rated.
