Boasting an incredible 10x optical zoom lens, it's easy to photograph everything from family portraits to sporting events. Optical Image Stabilization coupled with enhanced ISO 3200 makes it possible to capture critical shots even under poor lighting conditions.

In spite of all these advanced imaging technologies, the camera is incredibly easy to use. Canon's Easy Mode allows you to concentrate on your subject and let the camera handle the pictures. With a bright 3.0" LCD screen, simplified menu system, and convenient AA-size battery compatibility, the Canon PowerShot SX120 IS is an excellent choice for beginner and advanced photographers alike.

High Quality Imaging
By combining a new 10.0 megapixel CCD sensor and Canon's advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor, the PowerShot SX120 IS offers amazing image quality with dramatic low light sensitivity. Impressive ISO 3200 capability reduces blur and subject movement for crisp photos with spectacular sharpness and clarity.
10x Optical Zoom Lens
The PowerShot SX120 IS boasts a 10x Optical Zoom lens that makes it easy to get the inspiring landscapes and emotional portraits of memories that will last a lifetime. This high-powered lens brings distant subjects up close with amazing precision and brilliant color. Photograph a bird high atop a tree, a child's winning goal from across the stadium, or a school play from the last row. The SX120 IS takes you there!
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.
Easy Mode
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.
