This high-powered lens brings distant subjects up close with amazing precision and brilliant color.

3.0" LCD
Canon's latest 3.0" Pure Color LCD screen offers exceptional color and contrast for composing and reviewing photos and video.
Smart AUTO Mode
Concentrate on your subjects - let the camera handle the pictures. Canon's Smart Auto mode analyzes your shooting conditions with 18 pre-defined scene settings. From a wide, floral landscape to a night on the town with friends, the SX120 IS intelligently captures your memories--maximizing quality while minimizing effort.

Even if you've never picked up a camera before, Canon's new Easy Mode lets you take inspiring, dramatic pictures that will impress everyone. With Easy Mode enabled, the PowerShot SX120 IS handles all exposure details automatically. Your pictures are guaranteed to be bright, sharp, and natural with the touch of a button. Best of all, you can relax and concentrate on what really counts - your subject.
Advanced Face Detection Technology
Canon's advanced Face Detection Technology keeps every face in focus. Intelligent Contrast Correction, Red-eye Correction, and the latest focus-tracking technology deliver consistent sharpness and natural skin tones.
Optical Image Stabilization
Canon's optical image stabilizer counteracts camera shake caused by unwanted movement. Vibration sensors detect the angle and speed of hand movement and send this information to the processor, allowing the camera to compensate. This adds stability to hand-held, telephoto and moving shots and enables steady shooting speeds without the use of a tripod.
AA-size Battery Convenience
Never worry about running out of battery power again. The SX120 IS is powered by standard AA-size batteries. Purchase new batteries wherever your travels take you - no need for chargers or international power adapters.
