product description

The Canon Powershot S120 is a compact for the serious photographer offering superior performance. Features include a bright f/1.8 lens, Canon’s HS system for low light shooting, a 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor with DIGIC 6 processor for stunning results, continuous shooting up to 9.4fps, refined ergonomics and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Versatile lens
A bright f/1.8 lens allows shooting in darker conditions. A 24mm ultra-wide angle lets you take stunning landscapes and a 5x optical zoom with 10x ZoomPlus gets you up close.

Intelligent IS; Enhanced Dynamic IS
Intelligent IS combats camera shake, so all your photos are sharp and detailed even at full zoom or in low light. Enhanced Dynamic IS powerfully compensates for user movements over 5 axes for spectacularly steady movies.

3-inch touch screen
An advanced 922k dot capacitive touch screen offers simple, intuitive gesture-based operation.

Full HD 60fps
Expertly record smooth Full HD movies at 60fps in stereo with optical zoom supported by Focus Peaking and Touch AF. Advanced noise reduction processing (30p) delivers detailed movies in low light, while MP4 support and in-camera Movie Transcoding allow for easy sharing.

Star Mode, handheld HDR, Background Defocus
Shoot stunning starry nightscapes, star trails or create star time-lapse movies with Star Mode. Use HDR to capture high contrast scenes without a tripod or Background Defocus to achieve beautiful, SLR style background blur.

HS System
HS System excels in low light, capturing the real atmosphere of the moment without flash or a tripod. Advanced DIGIC 6 processing and a high sensitivity 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor (1/1.7 type) give exceptional image quality in all situations with up to ISO 12,800.

Superfast 9.4fps shooting
Capture split second action in full resolution with super-responsive operation, which includes 9.4fps sustained continuous shooting and high speed 0.1 sec auto focus.

Expert control
A Lens Control Ring allows quick control of functions such as zoom, aperture, shutter speed, focus or ISO. Use Full Manual mode and RAW with multi aspect support, for maximum control over composition and post-shot editing using the included DPP software. Refined ergonomics and a customisable FUNC. menu let you tailor the camera to your shooting style.

Wi-Fi, GPS via Mobile
Wi-Fi lets you connect easily with home wireless networks, compatible printers and PCs, plus smart devices for easy online sharing and GPS tagging of your images with shooting locations. Image Sync enables convenient PC and online backup via CANON iMAGE GATEWAY or Flickr.
