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.
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.
Summary: I have been debating whether to get a point-and-shoot that is ok, or an SLR that is fantastic. I couldn't justify spending mega$$$ on an SLR because I'm not that sophisticated a photographer. But I have been unhappy with point-and-shoots that are so slow you miss the picture and that have only a "mini-zoom" feature. But the Canon SX120IS solved it all. First, it's a lot less expensive than an SLR.
Summary: It is a good camera, as a powershot S1, S2, and S5 ex-user, I bought it because of its portability. I love the powershot S series ultra-zoom cameras, but now I want a smaller camera. But keep in mind, in this case, smaller the size, fewer the features. So this review is directed to S-series users that look for ultra-zoom portability. First the good: - Good image quality, IMHO.
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.
Excerpt: Bought this cam on a whim at Wal-Mart for $199.00. Even had 2 batteries and a small SD card with it, which most cams don't include. It's built with the usual high quality that Canon is known for, except maybe for the battery cover door. The little plastic door will be the first thing to break if you drop it. It is attractively designed with good modern styling and smooth rounded corners. Comfortable to carry and fits in most pockets, although it will be noticeable.
