Canon Digital IXUS 120 IS

10 May 2010
  • Excerpt: There’s nothing like the feel of a large, bulky digital SLR sitting on a tripod as you take the perfect photograph, a snapshot of a perfect moment. The only problem with this scenario is the size.

Canon PowerShot SD940 IS

  • Conclusion: Like the tiny and pretty designs of Canon’s Digital ELPH/IXUS cameras but also desire a 28 mm wide-angle lens? The PowerShot SD940 IS Digital ELPH aka Digital IXUS 120 is Canon’s latest ultra-compact which lets you have your cake and eat it too.
  • Pros: Very good image quality till ISO 800; ISO 3200 salvageable for tiny 4 x 6 prints, Above average camera performance (Except continuous shooting), New ‘hints and tips’ feature should prove useful for beginners, Smart Auto and a decent selection of scene modes, 720p HD movie mode with sound; HDMI ou...
  • Cons: Lacks manual controls and a live histogram, Visible, above average color fringing, Only black model has textured finish, other three colors are more smooth/slippery, Sluggish continuous shooting rate, Tiny mode switch; so-so memory card/battery door quality

  • Summary: The Canon IXUS 120 IS is a lovely little camera. It’s well made, looks great, is easy to use, performs well in all lighting conditions, and it even takes a decent picture. The only real problem is its extremely high price. If it was £100 cheaper it would almost be a bargain.
  • Pros: Style, build quality, performance
  • Cons: Price

  • Summary: When I first set eyes on the Canon PowerShot SD940 IS (also known as the IXUS 120 IS), one of Canon’s newest Powershot ELPH cameras, I asked myself, “Haven’t I seen this before?” In fact, it looks almost identical to the PowerShot SD780 IS , released this past February and reviewed by this website...

  • Summary: The little Canon can take good pictures, but the poor flash performance means it is no party camera. The lens and the image processing are good, but the user experience leaves something to be desired because of the LCD. The 28mm wide angle end of the zoom is a boon for tourists.
  • Pros: The images from the camera are generally good, although there is a tendency to over-expose low contrast subjects and the under-expose those in brighter light. Resolution and focus sharpness are excellent with very fine detail preserved and no worrying noise reduction effects, at least a ISO speed...
  • Cons: The LCD is a poor affair, giving only an approximate review of the captured image. Fortunately the image that appears on the computer monitor or in print is much better than the LCD would lead us to expect. Flash performance is poor with weak illumination and weird colour casts. Dynamic range (th...

Canon Ixus 120is

14 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Another in the range from Canon of their superb IxusDigitalCameras. If anything I think this one is even smaller, but, this does not mean the image quality suffers in any way. This unit is an amazing 12.1MP and gives superb images.
