Summary: All I can say is if you buy this camera you should also buy stock in one of the major battery companies. I cannot use this camera without replacing the batteries EVERY Time I want to use it. And this is whether I take 10 pictures or 30 pictures.
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.
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: The reason I purchased this camera was: 1) I didn't want to always lug around my large and heavy Canon D40, 2) I needed a camera the wife and kids could use with little fuss, 3) Came with the ability to take movies, and 4) Had the quality to take good photos at a low enough price point that if the...
Summary: I wanted a digital camera for Christmas and received this in 2009. When it came time to purchase a camera I originally went for a Fujifilm Finepix S1500.

Summary: The 10MP/10x Zoom is what attracted me to this camera, since I do alot of shots from far away at conventions. I tried it out immediately after it arrived at an event and it worked SO WELL! The far away shots are like I'm right there next to the guests. The color and sharpness cannot be beat.
Summary: Okay, I just wrote a fairly long review on everything that I found that I love about my new camera (macro-focus, flash setup, picture quality, etc), and then my computer froze the page and erased my review.
Summary: A wonderful camera, despite the user's skill level. Because of the size and weight, the portability isn't exactly optimized, but it's far better than carrying around a full size professional SLR. Pictures are of amazing quality- don't bother spending an extra $50-$75 for two more mega pixels!
