  • Summary: why Canon? why?!?!?!?!?! i actually regret selling my SD850IS for this piece of garbage. picture quality is horrible... what a downgrade. the 850 was much more attractive, too. this is the only time Canon has failed me... i'm never going for these child's toy-like compact cameras again!

User Review

  • Excerpt: Disappointing handling and construction. I've been a Ixus 70 user so far and I very much appreciated its handling, which had been outstanding! Supposing the Ixus 120 still had the same advantages as far as handling is concerned, I must admit the Ixus 120 is pretty disappointing. Buttons are pretty hard to push (this is really disappointing for daily use) and after two weeks of use the zoom crank is blocked and needed to be repaired.

  • Summary: After a short time it was impossible to use it because the lenses could not be retracted. A total waste of money!

appalling - only 1 star because couldn't give NO stars

  • Summary: (I bought an ixus 120IS elsewhere after this experience, & the camera is superb). However, buying it through Amazon was a bad experience - trapped in a kafka-esque world. Ordered Jy 16, when camera arrived Jy 19 it was silver, not black as stated on delivery note. Simple - exchange it. Simple? Not a chance.

Flimsy!

  • Summary: This is a very nice camera - no doubt. However, the first time I took it out to use, someone knocked it from a friend's hands as he tried to take a picture of us. It was an accident, and undoubtedly our fault, but the camera is completely destroyed: after one fall. One would expect an expensive Canon to be built with sufficient strength to withstand the occasional slip... the fact that it has been rendered unusable immediately should be a warning.

12 Megapixel sind 7 zuviel ...

  • Summary: Schade. Das hätte so eine super Kamera sein können. Klein, kompakt, gutes Display und sich schön ins Gehäuse einfügende Tasten. Nur leider produziert sie keine guten Fotos. Auf der einen Seite haben wir die unübertroffen hohe Auflösung von 3000x4000 Pixel. Was bitte soll dieser Unfug? Was für Spiegelreflexkameras kein Problem darstellt, ist für Kompaktkameras aufgrund des kleinen CCD-Sensors der Tod guter Bilder.

Enttäuschende Bedienung und Bildqualität

desktop.treuhand, Amazon
16 December 2009
  • Summary: Die Kamera verfügt über eine enttäuschende Bedienung, die sich in kleinen, schwer zu bedienenden Knöpfen, aber auch einer mangelhaften Menüführung äussert. Im Vergleich zu einem Vorgängermodell (Ixus 70), welches eine einhändige "blinde" Bedienung ermöglichte, ist die Benutzerführung in Menü, aber auch über die Bedienmöglichkeiten am Gehäuse mangelhaft und enttäuschend.

Schick - aber unbrauchbar

  • Summary: Anfang 2008 erschien in der Süddeutschen Zeitung ein Bericht, der nachwies, warum 6 Mio. Pixel gerade bei Kompaktdigitalkameras die optimale Größe sind und alles, was darüber hinausgeht, unweigerlich zu verstärktem Rauschen und Bildunschärfe führt. Bei meiner ehemaligen Canon Ixus 60 kann ich das nur bestätigen. An deren naturgetreue Abbildungen kommen weder die Ixus 120 IS noch die 100 IS an.
