Excerpt: I had S90 and got S120 for all it's new and better features. There are a few painful things, but I still use it, and suck it up, awaiting a better model in this price range.
Pretty amazing photos and videos. And a few things for Canon to fix:
- It stops video recording when file reaches 4GB.
Excerpt: I liked this camera alot. However the battery life when shooting Full HD video is horrible. If you search on the internet you will see loads of complaints regarding battery life issues, yet Canon fails to recognize this problem. Images and effects are great.
Pros: Good Low-Light Performance, Nice features/settings, excellent image quality, Bright LCD, Lightweight/Portable, Simple controls/menu, easy to use
Cons: Short battery life, poor microphone placement
Summary: I REALLY wanted to like this camera. I currently have the S110 so I wanted to test out the S120 because of the increase in video quality. I used the camera to take video for about 15-20 minutes & the battery was almost down 50%.. what?!
You need at least 3 batteries to use it for video!

Summary: This camera is great for amateurs and prosumers. I love the incredible depth of field, image stabilization for video, and picture quality. However, recording video on this camera will suck the battery dry in a matter of minutes.
Adequate, but overrated and not nearly the camera I expected it to be - especially since it comes without a manual.

Summary: This camera was so highly reviewed, and I did my research... but it came with almost no manual at all (only one with directions for how to connect to other devices via wifi to share images; nothing on how to use the settings offered) - and despite my best efforts, I cannot control the settings for...
Summary: The camera itself gets 5 stars for the photos produced. Ease of use with owner's manual and the wifi Canon Gateway gets 1 star. Seriously folks, I'm an intelligent person but flipping back and forth between pages of the full version of the owner's manual (which you gain access to via the web, and...
Summary: I got this to replace an s95 which randomly died on me after 5+ years. I was quite happy with that camera and really waffled between sending it to canon for repairs - buying a used one - or trying one of the newer canons.
