Summary: It's too soon to review the camera but a few words about the bundle might be helpful. The spare battery in my bundle is Vivitar and the SDHC card is from Toshiba (Class 10). The screen protector wasn't great so I abandoned it. The case is ludicrously large for this camera - I could fit seven S120s inside it and still have room for all the other pieces of the bundle.
Conclusion: This camera works just fine. I don't have a real issue with the battery life as others mention. But I have a MAJOR problem transferring photos. I am a tech savvy 24 year old and find it nearly impossible to transfer photos from my camera to either my cellphone or my computer. I have successfully transferred photos once or twice, but ever since, it continues to NOT function. It is pretty frustrating. This is an expensive camera.
Summary: I give it 4 stars for the image quality, ease of use, and feature set. But the build quality is questionable. The buttons seem loose, almost like they're being held with scotch tape. They wobble around when you push them. Feels like they're going to pop off. On my previous S100, everything felt solid and well built. I hope this isn't a trend for future Canon cameras. I think I'll be trading in this S120 when the G7X comes out.
The quality of the camera is very good. I was going to give 5 star

Summary: The quality of the camera is very good. I was going to give 5 star, but lately after 2 weeks of using it, the black paint starts to chip off. I never experience this kind of problems with cameras before. This does not affect the functionalities of the camera. But the camera does looks a little ugly with this issue. I am not sure if it is a common problem or only happens to my camera.
Summary: Great camera with some handy accessories. I can easily fit the camera into a back pocket without too much bulk. Be careful when sitting down though. The bag carries everything nicely but kinda ugly so I wouldn't carry it around with me. Nice that it comes with a backup battery and extra SD card. Over all great purchase and really fast shipping.
Summary: My wife and I are among the ones who had slipped into the " using our smart phone as a camera group. This is fine for the "everyday" as life happens photos, but then there are the "special occasions" where the smart phone just doesn't have what it takes. My biggest complaint on the smart phone (and some older digi cams) is the lag time from when the shutter is activated to when the picture is actually taken.
Excerpt: This is a very great camera of the year. Big Improvement. Digic 6 can record 1080p at 60fps. Touch Screen work perfect. Except 2 things 1. Movie Mode can not adjust aperture, shutter speed, ISO. Very Sad. 2. Camera Window App can not shoot remotely while other main competitor can.
Excerpt: I've had this camera a few weeks and like the feel, the size and the manual options. That said, I am having a little trouble with the user interface. Previous Canons I've owned had a "Sports" and "Kids and Pets" setting that I found very helpful on the fly. I know this camera gives the user a lot of manual control, and when I have the time to make the appropriate settings, the pictures are great.
Pros: Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Cons: Complicated Controls, No Actionsports Setting, No Kids And Pets Setting
