Canon - PowerShot SD120 IS Digital Camera is a GREAT camera!
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The Canon - PowerShot SD120 IS Digital Camera is a great camera. I love it! I would defintely recommend this camera. It takes great pictures and videos. I love that it has a face detection and a lot of shootingprograms like landscape , portrait mode, fireworks, night scene, sunset, indoor, foliage, beach, kids & pets, night snapshot, snow, high sensitivity,and aquarium . It has red eye reduction which is so nice.
Pros: takes great pics...loved the zoom when it was working
Cons: anytime I use the flash it kills the batteries immediately, no matter what type of batteries...tried cheap ones & good ones. Now, I can't zoom, it gives me a "lens error, restart camera" and it immediately shuts off. So, frustrating there is no troubl
Excerpt: The camera is great for it's price. 10MP may not sound many , as now almost all cameras are 14 or more , but who needs the image to be crystal clear at 10 mp resolution ? When you resize them down to 1600x1200 it's perfect.I love it's macro , and the tele zoom.It keeps low noise up to ISO 400 ,and it starts to be notable (tiny dots) only when you reach ISO 800 . But in this kind of situations there is a enough powerful flash that can deliver you a good quality image.
Pros: Image quality is decent for this price point, in good light. Manual controls available, which is why I bought it, but they operate stupidly.
Cons: Image quality is crap in anything other than good light, or if you zoom. Controls are too sensitive and subject to be bumped in normal operation, beep, then give no indication if a setting was changed. 250 character is nowhere near enough to cover..
Pros: Zoom, many different extra extravagant items, better image quality.
Cons: Pets and kids photo shot worse extremely worse than the A720IS. Big digital screen useless when trying to catch an object in motion with the zoom at maximum. Flash takes years to charge. Flattened the photographs.
Summary: I am very happy with this camera except for one thing. It's my fault since I should have paid more attention when looking at it in the store. The quality of pictures is great but it drives me crazy that I have to manually open the flash. I was used to the flash just being on the front of my other cameras but you have to flip it up on this one. Not a huge thing but I don't think I would have gotten this camera had a noticed it at the store.
