Canon PowerShot SX120 IS camera functions
The Canon SX120 IS digital camera is ideal for capturing a variety of scenes and activities. A 10x optical zoom lens is perfect for family holidays or school sports days, when you often need extra zoom.

Canon’s Image Stabiliser (IS), ISO Auto and Motion Detection Technology work together to form a complete Anti-Blur solution.
10 megapixel Canon PowerShot SX120 IS camera
To capture every detail, the Canon PowerShot SX120 IS includes a 10 Megapixel sensor with Canon’s powerful and intelligent DIGIC 4 processor - ensuring superb response times and natural colour reproduction. Canon DIGIC 4 also takes care of difficult lighting conditions with i-Contrast - a technology which prevents highlight blowout, whilst retaining shadow detail.
Canon SX120 IS digital camera technologies
For trouble-free shooting the Canon PowerShot SX120 IS camera includes Smart Auto and Easy modes with Scene Detection Technology. By analysing people, distance, brightness and colour in the scene, the new Canon camera automatically selects one of 18 scene variables to optimise settings for the best results - freeing the user to concentrate on picture taking, while the camera takes care of the technical details. Framing and reviewing shots is simple too, thanks to a bright 3.0 inch LCD with wide viewing angle.
Record VGA movies with the Canon SX120IS
More experienced users can choose their settings with additional shooting modes such as Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority. A full manual control mode is also provided - perfect for users who wish to experiment with their shots. The camera can also shoot VGA movies with sound, so users can film action as well as shooting beautiful stills.
Shoot perfect portraits with the Canon PowerShot SX120IS
The Canon SX120 IS digital compact camera also comes with the latest DIGIC 4 Face Detection Technology which recognises up to 35 faces in a scene and automatically adjusts key focus and exposure settings to ensure everyone looks their best. This technology includes Auto Red-Eye Correction, Face Detection AF/AE/FE, and Face Self-Timer - a feature that is great for group shots and self-portraits as the camera waits until it detects a new face in the frame before taking the shot. Faces can also be detected if they are at an angle to the camera so that the correct focus and exposure can be achieved without subjects facing the camera directly.
Canon PowerShot SX120IS features Face Select & Track
Face Select & Track also allows the user to select a particular face to be the main subject of the photo. This person is then tracked as they move around the frame - making sure the chosen face is the favoured subject and captured perfectly every time - ideal for shooting the important people in a crowded scene. Whatever your level of photography expertise, the Canon PowerShot SX120 IS takes stunning images while being simple and easy to use.
