  • Excerpt: If you're seeking high-level image quality in a pocket-sized camera, my Canon PowerShot S120 review shows that it is a strong contender.
  • Pros: Very fast performance levels, RAW image quality available in thin camera body yields very good image quality, Lens offers f/1.8 aperture, Touch screen display capabilities make this camera easy to use, Mixture of advanced shooting modes and beginner shooting modes
  • Cons: Price may be a little high, Optical zoom, Inclusion of a hot shoe would have been helpful, Camera's menu structure could use a redesign for better touch screen performance, Wi-Fi feature is difficult to set up and use

  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot S120 delivers impressive image quality in a compact package with Raw shooting capability, but it's not quite an Editors' Choice.
  • Pros: Sharp lens. Wi-Fi. Large image sensor. Compact. Raw support. 1080p60 video. 10fps continuous shooting.
  • Cons: Aperture narrows as you zoom. No hot shoe or EVF option. Pricey. Limited zoom range.

Canon PowerShot S120 review

Macworld UK

  • Excerpt: Like Sony with its newest cameras for 2014, Canon is also focusing on speed when it comes to its latest device. It’s claiming a new Digic 6 processor makes the 12.1 megapixel, 5x optical zoom Canon PowerShot S120 compact some 50% faster than its S110 predecessor. That pixel count may seem conservative for a camera that has a manufacturer’s suggested price of £449.99, but the S120 comes with both a larger 1/1.7-inch backlit CMOS sensor than your average snapshot plus a...
  • Pros: Solid feel high quality construction despite the pocket proportions, touch screen control, customisable lens ring function will appeal to those who love getting hands on with camera operation
  • Cons: The asking price here would alternatively buy a cheap DSLR, lacks a handgrip, omits an eye level viewfinder

Canon Powershot S120 review

  • Summary: When compacts were for dummies and DSLRs for pros, "serious" compacts in the vein of the Canon S120 and Sony RX100 made a lot of sense. Now, flanked by fantastic do-it-all compacts such as the Sony HX50 on one side and far more flexible compact system cameras on the other, their niche is squeezed harder than ever.
  • Pros: Slim, Cool special modes, RAW shooting, Solid build, Excellent picture quality, Great image stabilisation, Smooth, sharp video at 60fps
  • Cons: 5x zoom is limiting, Unfriendly interface, Poor Wi-Fi integration, Questionable battery life

  • Excerpt: De små kameraer i Canons S-serie har længe været blandt ​​vores favoritter. Årsagen er rigtig god billedkvalitet fra et kamera i lille format, der på mange måder er lige så godt som større og dyrere kompakter. Det lille kamera kan være i en lomme, men er alligevel udstyret med en relativt lysstærk zoom, touch-skærm samt fuld kontrol over alle funktioner, og kan lagre råfiler. Hvis du selv vil styre blænde og dybdeskarphed, er det ligetil.
  • Pros: Høj billedkvalitet, Lynhurtig skudtakt, Let og kompakt, Nem Wi-Fi
  • Cons: Batteritid på 230 eksponeringer, Optisk fortegning på vidvinkel, Lyssvag blænde på tele

Test: Canon PowerShot S120 (Digitalkamera)

CHIP Online
19 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Fazit: Die Canon PowerShot S120 liefert im Test Spitzenergebnisse bei der Geschwindigkeit. Autofokus, Videobildrate oder Verschlusszeit - alles arbeitet einen Tick schneller als beim Vorgängermodell S110. Dafür verzeichnet aber die Bildqualität einen Rückschritt bei Rauschen und Randschärfe.
  • Pros: Schärfe, Verarbeitung, Manuelle Modi, Full-HD-Video bei 60 B/s
  • Cons: Bildqualität hinter Vorgänger, Akkulaufzeit für Video
