Summary: Another in the range from Canon of their superb Ixus Digital Cameras . 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.
Conclusion: The Canon Digital IXUS 120 IS is very svelte indeed and has a set of controls that are a little fiddly, certainly the small size presents handling issues for those with larger hands.

Cons: Controls are a little fiddly, price, underpowered flash, high ISO image noise, no optical viewfinder, metering, slight pixel fringing
