Excerpt: I bought this camera because of its excellent lens and compact size. What I didn't realize was its incredible complexity. To use the dozen features I'm interested in, I have to choose between controls with labels like "ring func", "func set" and "menu" and the unlabeled control ring, mode dial and...
Excerpt: I took delivery of this camera last week and used it extensively over the weekend. All I can say is I am not impressed. The manual is useless, there are features missing that I was planning to use and my IPhone takes as good of pictures as this very expensive camera takes.
Pros: Bright LCD
Cons: Missing features/settings, Short battery life, poor instructions
Summary: the camera Box was opened , i got a camera that was returned by someone , they repackaged it and sent it to me. none of the manufacturer tags and protective stickers and shields were on the camera.
With so many improvements, how can it perform worse than what it replaces?

Summary: I just purchased a Canon S120 to replace a 4 year old S95 that gave its life in a dust storm. I like the size of the S120 and the S95, easily pocketable and convenient for quick photos from the car on the road.
Summary: Yes, it seemed to take very nice pictures. It's small, maybe a little too small, if you're going to carry a camera, anyway. It will fit in your jean pocket, but if you already have a phone in there, well. You have to take the battery out to charge it and you'll be doing that a lot.

Summary: Nice features, takes great photos- unfortunately mine died after about 3 weeks- "lens error" - Google it. This is apparently a common design fault in canon compact cameras. Will need to look for something else.
Summary: Die Bildqualität in beleuchteten Räumen ist total enttäuschend. Selbst bei einer Begrenzung des Iso Wertes auf max. 400 und bei Verwendung des Blitzes in einem normal beleuchteten Raum lösen sich die Konturen teilweise total auf. Es sind total verrauschte Flecken sichtbar.
PowerShot S120: Für Taucher nur bedingt zu empfehlen

Summary: Die PowerShot S120 war gemeinsam mit meiner alten Ixus 85 beim MuckDiving in Lembeh/Indonesien dabei. Und mein Fazit: Für Taucher ist sie nur bedingt zu empfehlen! Zugegeben - ich fotografiere nicht in RAW, und ich habe keinen externen Blitz.
