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!
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.
Summary: It has been about 30 days since i bought it.. Pros: Picture quality is real good for point and shoot camera Zoom is pretty useful Negatives: Battery life is real short, if u r making alot of adjustments, it is even more short( like 70-80 photos) Makes some noise( doesnt matter for me) And i got this...
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.
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!

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
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.
Good build, great pics... but battery life questionable...
