Canon S120 review

TechRadar UK
23 December 2013
  • Summary: Pocket sized premium compact is packed with exciting features
  • Pros: Full manual control, Raw format shooting, Touchscreen, Wi-Fi, A nifty little performer, there's lots to like about the Canon S120, not least the excellent image quality. It's not quite on a par with the Sony RX100 II but it's not too far behind, which considering its smaller sensor is pretty impr...
  • Cons: Limited Wi-Fi options, Limited digital filter control, It's about time Canon improved its digital filter offering, giving more choice and the ability to shoot with them while using raw format and keep full manual control. While it's nice to have a dedicated mode for filters, we can't help but fee...

  • Conclusion: If you're looking for a small, pocketable yet high-end compact camera that produces cracking images then there aren't many other places to look than directly at the PowerShot S120 or Panasonic Lumix LX7. The Canon does itself justice in being a decent all-rounder.
  • Pros: Truly pocketable, decent build quality, champions image quality for the 1/1.7in sensor size, lens control ring is great, autofocus is up to the task and faster than before
  • Cons: Battery life could be better, over-exposure not uncommon, Wi-Fi interface needs smoothing out, pricey, no hotshoe for expansion, large-sensor competition is strong

Das Digitalkamera-Magazin
15 February 2014
  • Conclusion: In der Praxis zeigt die Canon PowerShot S120 das manuelle Optionen und viele Einstellungsmöglichkeiten keinesfalls nur großen Kameras vorbehalten sein müssen. Ob die Kamera auch im Labor und somit insgesamt überzeugt, erfahren Sie jetzt.
  • Pros: Gute bis sehr gute Bildqualität für eine Kompaktkamera, 5-fach-Zoom mit sehr praxistauglicher Brennweite 24-120mm, Lichtstarkes Objektiv im Weitwinkel (F1,8), Sehr kompaktes Kameragehäuse (passt ohne Probleme in eine Hosentasche), Die Digitalkamera liegt gut Hand (ein frontseitiger Handgriff wäre...
  • Cons: Einige Anzeigen reagieren "verspätet" und nicht wirklich "live", Die Druckpunkte der Tasten könnten deutlicher sein (dies gilt nicht für Auslöser), Das Kameradisplay ist nicht dreh- und/oder schwenkbar gelagert, Die Kamera lässt sich über WLAN nicht fernsteuern
