Excerpt: Let's get to the point: This camera takes excellent photographs. Good sensor, good lens, good processor. I researched point and shoots for weeks. This is what I chose and am glad about it.It is a good step up from the cheap P&S cameras selling for $[$]etc. They are bascially junk.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I was using a Canon Powershot Elph 330 HS and "upgraded" to the Canon Power Shot S120. The image quality is nicer. But it's a bit bigger and heavier (I carry it in my pocket for "everyday" type photos). The video is very nice quality but requires faily decent lighting.
Excerpt: I owned the s95 and upgraded to the s120. I like the s120's display over the s95, and I believe on a technical level the s120 is a bit superior (not in a way that is hugely noticeable for me, as a casual photographer of vacation spots and the like).
Summary: This is an excellent camera! It takes great pictures and the settings are simple and easy to use. It takes fantastic low light photos, which was very important to me. Also very important to me are the small size, so it can fit easily in a pocket, and the very solid construction, since I am...
Summary: love it - came with all the extras - but pretty complicated and the manual delivered is very light. I need to get more detail from the online documentation. Probably more than I needed but love the wifi idea...
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.
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.
