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.

Actually bought this Canon from elsewhere as I needed it quickly, but am VERY happy with it.
For several years we have had a Panasonic Lumix TZ20 which we bought as we were lured in by the tv aderts that promised an amazing zoom, and we have always liked Panasonic as a brand. However in all that time we have struggled to take pictures indoors with the Panasonic, and found them constantly blurred or dark - we thought it must be something we were doing wrong or some setting that we hadn't worked out how to use. Yes, we could and did use flash, but we found the images to be too brash and stark, so were constantly disappointed with the Panasonic's image quality.
Something had to change. Did a bit of research and found others also struggling to take non-blurry photos with Panasonic. Worked out that the Panasonic's f3.3-5.9 lens was the problem. Went hunting for the fastest lens possible on a compact and came up with the Canon S120.
This lens is unbelievably bright!! We have taken photos in my sons semi-darkened bedroom, lit only by a 20w night light, and the photos look like they could have been taken in broad daylight!! Of course you could still manually change the aperture to let in less light if you wanted the photo to look like it really was taken in a dark room. However f1.7 is letting in nearly 4 times as much light as f3.3 so the shutter speed can be 4 times shorter => having the F1.7 lens has been a total game changer for us - no more dark or blurry photos.
There's a lot of talk about battery life being a problem, but tbh we've found it really reasonable, you can take 40 mins of HD video or hundreds of photos on a single charge. If you really do need more just buy a 2nd battery.

This is a superb little camera producing excellent results. I bought it as a pocketable alternative to my DSLR system and a lightweight standalone camera when I want to travel light. The camera has a super lens and full manual control. It has a solid metal body so it's not as light as cheaper compacts but it feels substantial, good for handholding in low light.

Just the job - full manual with display assisting judgement and instant feedback on choices - plus easy automatic operation when there just isn't time to prepare. Plenty of new features to try - e.g. do I go artificial background blur or just pick a short field of focus for similar but different effect - so plenty of opportunity to learn more to get the best out of the new technology. Very compact and easy to handle. I'm a fan

Bought primarily for scuba diving and very pleased to find that not only does it have an underwater setting in Scene mode but also Unerwater macro
Really looking forward to putting it to the test!

This was purchased as a wee travel camera, more versatility than my iPhone and less bulky than my EOS 5D. I stuck with canon as I'm familiar with their products so it's no reflection on other brands. This camera is great with a great selection of functions from full auto to full manual control. It packs into a small carry on case taking up little room so it's ideal for those short trips. Records both JPG and RAW along with full HD movies. This model has a faster lens from previous which give some benefits in low light. So far it's been good to use and takes great photos and all the controls are very intuitive. If your looking for a handy compact camera this is a good choice.

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.
