The compact, easy-to-use PowerShot SX120 IS uses a 10.0 Megapixel sensor – capturing enough detail for poster-size prints or creative cropping.
10x optical zoom with optical IS
With a 10x optical zoom, it’s easy to fill the frame with a distant subject. Canon’s optical Image Stabilizer counteracts the effect of camera shake, ensuring crisp blur-free results throughout the zoom range.
Smart Auto and Easy mode
Designed to let everyone take great shots, Smart Auto mode analyses subject brightness, contrast, distance and hue. Intelligent Scene Detection Technology then selects the scene type from 18 variables, applying the best settings for optimum output. Easy mode deactivates all buttons except flash and reduces on-screen icons, for fuss-free, simple shooting.
Large 3.0” LCD
A clear and bright 3.0” LCD screen with wide viewing angle makes framing and reviewing shots a pleasure.
Canon’s DIGIC 4 processor delivers ultra-fast camera operation, superb colour reproduction, and advanced noise reduction – for cleaner-looking shots at higher ISO speeds.
Face Detection Technology
For perfect portraits, the PowerShot SX120 IS features Canon Face Detection Technology. Face Select & Track lets you select a particular face as the principal subject in a photo, while FaceSelf-Timer makes group photos easy – taking a shot after an extra face enters the frame.
The PowerShot SX120 IS combats blur with Motion Detection Technology, which uses several advanced methods to determine camera and subject movement. ISO settings are then adjusted for optimum results.
In shooting or playback, enhanced i-Contrast optimises dynamic range according to the scene- retaining detail in shadows and preventing overexposure of highlights. The result is natural images with the best possible contrast.
20 shooting modes
20 dedicated shooting modes help you to achieve superb shots in a wide variety of lighting conditions. For more experienced users seeking greater creative control, a Full Manual control mode is included.
Supplement still shots by shooting fantastic VGA quality movie clips with sound. A special Long Play option uses around half the normal memory card space, allowing you to shoot for longer.
