Summary: Love the camera! Small, light weight, and very easy to use. I have not yet learned how to use all of the features but the automatic setting works great. Just wished batteries lasted a little longer, but they are AA so you just pop in a fresh set and recharge the ones you took out.
Unless you are a pro photographer you won't need more than this camera has

Summary: I bought the sx120 as a replacement for an sx100 that broke when a AA battery leaked. Using AA batteries is the only negative on this camera. It eats batteries, but you can buy a mains adapter to power the camera for indoor extended shooting.
A superb camera that takes great pictures & lots of auto & custom settings!

Summary: The zoom on this camera is fantastic! For a point and shoot camera, it takes amazing pictures. It's a little more clunky than your average point and shoot - you couldn't fit it in your average pocket - but it's worth it for the quality of the pictures and the features that come with the camera.
Summary: People rave about my photos, and I only use the auto and video functions. I can fire off shots fairly quickly. I tend to take a lot of shots, then delete a lot once they are downloaded to my PC. The camera is very portable. I can just slip it into my pocket which means it is also fairly rugged.
A great little gem of a digital at a very good price.

Summary: I really like this little camera. I've only been able to use it twice but find the pictures crisp and the colors very good. I have been a die hard 35mm user for many years so found this little gem easy to use.
Summary: I have been researching and coveting and trying to find a good deal on a Canon digital camera for a few months. I didn't want to spend the money and be disappointed (been there just recently with different brand). I didn't have a lot to spend, period!
Summary: I own a Canon EOS 40D digital SLR camera, but there are places where I do not want to carry a large, expensive camera & lenses (such as work; I drive a truck for a living). I was looking for something smaller, less costly to replace (in case it gets broken or stolen), yet that still had full manual...
Summary: I was in the market for a new camera and was looking specifically for a Canon SX120 A. Apparently they had been discontinued and a customer service person at my local Staples recommended the SX.
Summary: I absolutely LOVE this camera!! I had been using a Kodak digital camera, which was ok for everyday photos. But I needed a better camera for my trip to Europe last fall. A friend of mine had recommended this Canon model after I raved about her photos of a hummingbird in mid-flight outside of her...
Summary: I bought a canon because my mother-in-law has a canon and we found it easy to use. I went for the sx120 because I wanted a few more features than hers had. I am extremly happy with the quality of the pictures. I take a lot of close up pictures and it really shines in that role.
