Background Defocus

Background Defocus is a creative filter that mimics the background blur of images taken by an SLR with a wide aperture lens. It takes two consecutive shots, one in focus and one out of focus and combines them into a composite image with beautiful background blur. You can select from three different levels of background blur to achieve stunning portraits and close up shots with the exact blurring effect you want.

Handheld HDR

HDR Mode let you capture the dark shadows and bright highlights of a high contrast scene. Thanks to the speed of DIGIC 6, you can achieve HDR without using a tripod or fixing the camera on a steady surface. It captures a fast continuous sequence of shots, and then combines the data into a single file with the least possible blur and best possible exposure for images closer to how you saw them. You can also choose from 5 finishing effects: Natural, Art Bold, Art Standard, Art Vivid and Art Embossed.

Optional Waterproof Case

Protect your camera underwater down to 40m.

*Sustained continuous shooting -12.1fps for the first 5 frames and then 9.4fps for approx. 635 frames (depending on shooting subject), using compatible SDHC/SDXC UHS Speed Class 1 memory cards.

I now carry this camera with me daily, I keep it in the glove box where it is ready to go.

It gives a great image quality, the shots I bin are my fault - one way or another - the exposures are spot on as is white balance. I normally leave it on the Programme setting and occasionally use Aperture Priority, but there are lots of adjustments that can be made. My favorites are the ND filter, use of manual focusing via the lens ring and HDR setting for difficult lighting conditions. Adjustments and Menus can be easily accessed via the touch screen or buttons on the camera's rear.

For a Canon user the Menus are intuitive and easy to use.

A NOTE on battery life. The number of shots per charge seems to improve with charging cycles, I now easily get a days shooting from a single fully charged battery (but I do carry a spare). Whilst this camera uses the NB-L6 battery it is rated as providing 3.7V - 1060mAh and is marked as NB-6LH. It is important to use a genuine Canon battery of the correct rateing.

This is an expensive option but it is a worthwhile investment.

I have spent some time looking for a suitable carry case and have found the Lowepro REZO 20 a perfect fit.

This is an ideal camera for someone who is familiar with using a canon SLR but is put off using it as much as they should by the inconvenience that comes with hauling around such a large piece of kit. The camera controls are equivalent to the SLR but the added functionality of the smart-phone quality touch screen and the pocket-friendly dimensions takes this camera to another level of usability. It's not cheap but the build quality and results more than justify the price.

If you use Aperture and Shutter Priority Mode, ISO, Shutter Speed and require a backup camera to your SLR, this is the one.

All settings are accessible via the top dials and selected with the front wheel on the lens in combination with the backsreen.

This camera is much easier to handle than my EOS 5d III.

If you do not require manual control of your camera, I would not buy this camera as there are far better point and shoot cameras on the market than this one.

I previously reviewed this camera quite harshly because of its battery life. However, you can easily get an hour worth of HD video recording (though if you want to use this for filming it is best to do so on a full charge. The filming time reduces if you also take photos, but my wife tested this and it definitely can film for an hour on a full battery, which is the estimated time by Canon).
There are a lot of manual settings to play with in photo mode, but since neither me nor my wife are expert photographers, we leave it on auto and it has produced quality images out of the box.
One thing to note, if you use this for filming, the battery indicator will start to flash at around 25 minutes or so. It will easily record for another 25 minutes so it is nothing to worry about. Also if you have used the camera for around an hour of photography, when you enter film mode, the battery may start flashing. I called Canon and they told me this is because it requires more battery power to film than take photos so when you switch to video mode, the camera bases its calculations on how much battery will be required to continue. If you have already used the camera for taking photos for some time, the battery indicator will flash because there will not be enough juice for it to film for very long. There is no problem with video mode. As it happens, the HD film clips are easily comparable to a dedicated camcorder. I think with one extra battery, users will barely notice problems with batteries. Although one can complain, it is a very small pocket camera with a lot of sophisticated tech inside, and it all requires a lot of power to run, and to make a device this small, the battery cannot be very big. I think if you take a few photos everyday it should be OK.

I've been using a Powershot S95 as my second camera (to my DSLR/CSC) for a few years now. There were some functions of the S120 that appealed to me - these were the brighter/wider lens, wifi functions, better focus tracking and the high burst rate. The touchscreen functionality wasn't a factor in my purchase, but I've come to really like it. One big plus for me with the S120 is the built in ND filter which is great for using the wider apertures in sunlight.

The picture quality is as good as one can hope from a small sensor like this and the overall level of control and customisation is excellent.

While I rely on a more expensive APS-C camera for my landscape work - I have found myself carrying the S120 around all the time and have been pleasantly surprised at some of the shots I've got with this camera. I highly recommend it.
