Product information

Powerful, compact and loaded with features, Canon’s PowerShot S120 is ideal for the more intrepid photographer. It features built-in GPS (via mobile) and Wi-Fi for easy sharing and geo-tagging, as well as a whole suite of professional photo modes. An intuitive lens control ring allows you to fine tune your shots, while a large 3-inch touch screen makes navigation simple.

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.

Powerful sensor
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.

Image stabilisation
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.

Fast 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.

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

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.

Q & As

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great alternative to my bulky SLR I was after a fully functional camera to carry on holiday rather than lugging round my DSLR and a friend had recommended the Canon Powershot S120. Having had one of the original Powershots back in 2001 and a series of Ixus for my wife since then, I am blown away at the picture quality and features offered by this little beauty. My wife can switch to Auto for her point and shoot and I have the freedom to get creative using the many presets and manual modes. I now see why my friend sold his SLR after buying this. I would highly recommend this camera. 15 July 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very poor battery life There isn't that much I can say about this camera. The photographs appear to be excellent quality, and the video is just as good. Unfortunately, the battery life is appalling. I could only manage a very short period of filming video before the battery warning light started flashing, and to my mind that makes it a very poor product. If you Google ‘s120 battery life’ you will see this is a very common problem. I'm just glad I bought it from John Lewis so I can at least get my money back. 11 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A little gem! With similar proportions and weight to a point & shoot compact but offering DSLR type creativity options, this is my perfect go-anywhere camera. Well built, it has a useful focal length range of 24-120mm, and with a fast aperture of f1.8 at the wide end, it is great for low-light conditions. Downsides: Battery life is on the low side but manageable with a spare. Slightly excessive audio hiss on video playback. 26 May 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Camera good but Canon accessory offer difficult to access This is a good camera but it's not easy to receive your accessory and there is no Canon customer service number to progress the accessory offer. Very disappointed that John Lewis have associated themselves with such a painful process to gain an offer ! 21 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stunning little camera This is a superb camera; it takes great photos, and is very compact and easy to use. I'd also like to commend John Lewis for their excellent customer service (I'd originally bought a much less suitable camera for my needs, and was able to exchange this#. So far I've taken family shots #easy and reliable in fully automatic mode#, and macro shots of garden flora and fauna #where the program and other modes come into their own - as does the f1.8 lens). The rear screen is very high quality, the various functions are fairly intuitive and well laid out, and the resulting photos are excellent. A spare battery is a recommended investment though. The touchscreen is useful for altering the AF point when shooting, and also when reviewing and post-processing. The wifi function allows transfer of photos onto a smartphone. The flash only pops up when manually selected; this for me is a plus-point. There's a special mode for low-light shots, this gives super results. All-in-all: very pleased with my purchase, and with the customer service received. 18 August 2014
