What Digital Camera
30 November 2013
  • Summary: There's no question that the Canon PowerShot S120 is one of the best compact cameras money can buy. It has the performance, features and image quality of a high-end advanced compact with the style and portability of a pocket snapshot camera.

Canon PowerShot S120

Camera Labs
1 October 2013
  • Summary: The Wifi is easier to setup, the lens a little brighter, the top video mode now films 1080 / 60p, there's a bunch of new shooting modes including some neat astrophotography options, and a higher resolution touch screen with the chance to pull focus during video by tapping the desired subject. All nice to have, but most importantly the S120 becomes a much faster camera than its predecessor.
  • Pros: One of smallest cameras with RAW & manual control., Very fast sustained burst shooting., Flexible 5x range with 24mm f1.8 & built-in ND filter., Focus peaking greatly aids manual focusing., Built-in Wifi with social sharing from the camera., Touchscreen interface with tap focus pulling., Wealth of presets including HDR and Star modes.
  • Cons: No manual exposure control for movies., No manual focusing during movies., No smartphone remote control over Wifi., No hotshoe or viewfinder or mic accessories., No cable release or Bulb option.

Canon PowerShot S120 review

Pocket Lint
10 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Canon has a knack for making great compact cameras. The PowerShot S120, the replacement of last year's S110 model, might not reinvent the wheel, but it certainly get things turning faster in the pocketable high-end compact market. And if that's what you're looking to buy then it has a lot going for it.
  • 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

PowerShot S120

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. Der bei der Canon PowerShot S120 (Datenblatt) verwendete CMOS-Chip mit einer Auflösung 12 Megapixel besitzt eine Größe von 1/1,7 Zoll. Dies sorgt für ein bis ISO 200 kaum sichtbares Bildrauschen.
  • 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 aber wünschenswert), Gute Auslöserdruckpunkte (man muss jedoch immer über das Programmwählrad greifen), Sehr hohe Bildrate im Serienbildmodus (im Labor: bis zu 12,1 Bilder/Se...
  • 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
