The Canon Power Shot S120 Point-and-Shoot Camera is a compact point-and-shoot camera featuring a 12.1 megapixel 1/1.7" high-sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 image processor to produce high quality still imagery and full HD 1080p video with notable low-light quality and sensitivity from ISO 80-12800.

question

How does the new model compare with the SX-series and the G-series?
Asked by: Anonymous
The G series are in a class of their own, as they have a 1 sensor. They compete with the Sony RX100 series.

question

how can you turn off the flash?
Asked by: Anonymous
Just push down on the flash and lower it into the camera body. It is a manual raising and lowering operation, which I think is fantastic, no searching through menus.

question

I am getting lens error when trying to switch the Powershot S120 camera on. So it won't switch on at all, right now the camera is no better than a lego brick- is there anything I can do to fix this?
Asked by: Mark C.
I've had this happen on several Powershot's. You're pretty much out of luck. Sounds like the worm gear on the lens to extract and focus the lens is either damaged or misaligned. Don't try to push the lens in or out as that will just make things worse, I know I've done it several times out of desperations. Best to send it in or take it a canon repair shop and have the lens drive replaced, not a big deal. Check and see if you warranty is still good or they may even have an extended repair ticket for anyone who brings in a camera with this issue. I know they did with the S100.Good luck

question

The camera works great in low light for videos. I have been shooting my sons band. However, the battery life is so low, it would be great if I could plug in the camera. I do not see an ac adaptor. Can I find one?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes there is an external AC-power adapter. See the link below for details on the unit:http://bhpho.to/1gURTiM

question

Can you tell me about the battery charger that comes with this camera. Can I use it in Europe without a converter or any additional accessories?Then about the batteries: what is the difference between the canon B6-LH and B6-L batteries? These are both listed in accessories for this camera but in the box there is the B6-L? is this newer? Will the B6-LH even work with this camera?thanks.
Asked by: Anonymous
1) The battery charger is multi-voltage and can be used in any regioun, but would require a plug tip adapter to fit into foreign outlets.2) The NB-6LH is an updated version of the original NB-6L battery. The voltage on both is the same, but the maH rating on the NB-6LH is greater, which simply means the camera will have the ability to take a greater number of images and record video longer than the original battery would. The kit comes with the original NB-6L but is compatible with both versions.

question

Canon website says that S120 flash has a slide switch on side of camera instead of previous motorized pop up system. Will that work with new Underwater Housing?

The new Canon WP-DC51 Waterproof Case for PowerShot S120 Digital Camera will allow access to all camera functions, including the flash.
