good camera but not very durable

PD, Amazon
15 May 2011
  • Summary: I bought this camera for work. Compact is what I needed, the features were a bonus. I picked it because the reviews were good. I was happy with it for about a week, until I dropped it. It fell about 2 feet to the ground & landed in stones. It has not been right since.

Cannot change focus while recording video

  • Summary: I bought this camera for its ability to record 720p video. Although it was obvious from reviews that the optical zoom could not be used while recording video, it was not at all clear that the camera does not change focus while recording.

Good Point-and-shoot

  • Summary: This camera is a good point and shoot camera. It also takes pretty decent videos, including in low light. However, it is a point and shoot - it can't really be used for anything else, and it has very few settings to play with. It is really small which I like, the LCD screen's pretty decent too.

Disappointed

  • Summary: I bought this to replace my Canon SD800 that was 3 years old. I really wanted the ability to shoot video in 720p. Contrary to most people, I think these small cameras are great for shooting video, especially of family and kids.

Only if camera size is the most imp criteria

  • Summary: If your last camera was a stone age 3.1 MP Kodak EasyShare DX6340, then almost any camera bought today will be miles ahead. This camera needs to be compared against the current crop of cameras on the market and not an ancient kodak.

small and just okay

Chatty Kathy, Amazon

  • Summary: I wanted a good small camera for my purse. It doesn't do well in darker rooms and the automatic zoom doesn't really zoom. It's best for daylight and close shots. I guess you get what you pay for.

Small, fast camera, but poor picture quality

Andrew Smith, Amazon
20 June 2010
  • Summary: This is my sixth Canon camera, including two digital Rebels and four PowerShots. I bought it for its excellent wide-angle lens, and HD video mode in particular. I wanted the wide-angle lens to capture more of a scene when in a small shooting space, and this camera delivered well.

Takes great pics but the mic for taking videos is terrible

P. Romero, Amazon
20 June 2010
  • Summary: I bought this camera because I wanted to upgrade my CANON SD1000 so after reading reviews i bought this camera. I wanted a new Canon with HD video so that was the main reason for upgrading.

Disappointed, looking for replacement

  • Summary: I have had many Canon cameras over the years, so I expected a lot from this camera. Prior to this one I had a SD880IS which was larger but had a really good design with a larger LCD and raised controls (not flush like this one). More about the camera .....

User Review

  • Excerpt: This camera DOES NOT have a "Superfine" jpeg mode as the details say. It has Fine and Normal only. I actually compared the output from the Ixus120 with an old Ixus30, which does Superfine, and the image results are literally -the same- in terms of noise and jpeg artifacting.
