Summary: This is a very nice camera. Battery life is excellent, especially with lithium batteries. I really like the true colors in the pictures and it's ability to take good quality photos in fairly dim light without the use of a flash. I've been using it for close to a year and have found it to be durable and reliable. It is very versatile having both manual and automatic modes, as wells having video capability. It does have one annoying shortcoming...there is no viewfinder.
Summary: The Canon Powershot SX120 is a very good camera verses the cost. Not too difficult to use, has simple menu options. The camera is a good size for travel, although you will have to carry many extra batteries. Camera works well in low light situations. You can buy a better camera, but you will pay a higher price. Camera appears to be compatible with many computer software packages and that is a good thing to have.
Summary: I really love this camera! It took EXCELLENT High resolution pictures while I was on Vacation during the Christmas season! Hardly needed to use a flash! I have given this a Good Rating only because I bought rechargeable Batteries. Burns through regular ones pretty fast! The Big Screen is remarkable!
Summary: Converted from a sony cybershot. I have to say that the picture quality is beyond compare for the same specs. I barely noticed the drawbacks ( shutter speed) mentioned in reviews. The way I see it, this camera is exactly what itis supposed tobe, a point and shoot camera, not an SLR. YOu want SLR, buy SLR. This is a great product and I am going shutter crazy with it.
A very impressive camera for the price with some really stupid software...

Summary: I was looking for the best zoom with image-stabilization in the under-$200 category and I'm pretty sure I've found it. In addition, I got what seems to be the smartest camera in its class. Unfortunately, the people who designed it were thinking more about getting the images onto the camera than getting the images off. It doesn't mount as a USB mass-storage device and the bundled software is total "poo.
Summary: I've owned several digital cameras, but this one is my favorite out of them all. My favorite thing about it is the fast shutter action when you turn off the "auto preview" so the picture doesn't show right after you've taken it. Other cameras have had this feature, but doesn't speed up the shutter action like this one. Especially nice when trying to get that "perfect shot" of my grandkids. They move so fast, I miss some good shots just waiting for the "ready" light.
A Great Camera for somone wanting a bit more than what the smaller point and shoots have to offer

Summary: I would like to start off by saying that I am not a very advanced photographer but I wanted to get a camera that offered more than what the compact point and shoots have to offer. The main feature about this camera (aside from the Canon name which I prefer) is the great optical zoom. I go to alot of sporting events and this camera is great for zooming in and getting clear shots of the action.
