(Maybe not) The one I've been looking for

D Sing, Amazon
27 December 2010
  • 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.

OK camera, but shutter lag is a killer

Jeff S., Amazon
26 December 2010
  • Summary: This camera has all the settings and features I wanted. The flash pops-up with a simple flick of your finger. The screen is huge (no viewfinder, but it doesn't need one). But the lag between when you press the shutter and when it takes the picture is excruciating!

User Review

Walmart
4 May 2010
  • 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.

did a compare and contrast with a canon A640

Peazfool, Amazon
28 October 2009
  • Summary: I'd been shopping around for a digital camera for a while now. Just when I thought I got the right camera - it turns out to be not much of an upgrade at all. My Canon A640 is about 3 years old and I wanted to replace with a camera that has an Image Stabilizer.

Good camera, but it lacks features

Rafael Sarres, Amazon
13 October 2009
  • 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.

Canon Powershot SX120 IS- a great buy for a beginner!

coca364, Ciao
1 November 2012
  • Excerpt: As someone who has always wanted to learn how to photograph 'properly' but has always been too put off by the high price of quality cameras, I finally plucked up the courage to ditch my old, half broken digital camera and get a new one.
  • Pros: Both manual and auto settings -  great for the beginner
  • Cons: Auto setting sometimes produces pictures with strange lighting -  especially if taken outside

  • Excerpt: Introduction For several years, my go-to camera, when I just wanted something versatile to take out with me on a trip, has been a Canon PowerShot A710 IS. Although now well over five years old, it's still a camera I like a lot.
  • Pros: Excellent output, heaps of features, nice to handle, control wheel, looks attractive, manual flash
  • Cons: Mediocre battery life, no optical viewfinder, no HD movies, slightly plasticky build

MALU, Ciao
9 January 2012
  • Excerpt: In October 2010 I went to Lisbon with a digital camera from Sony but returned without it. I had noticed that one hook of the strap had come loose, I refastened it so that the camera wouldn't fall off my shoulder.
  • Pros: good in drab weather and indoors
  • Cons: very bad in sunshine
