CANON POWERSHOT SX120 MANUAL PDF

Compared to the SXIS, Canon has again upped the resolution slightly, taking the SX from a nine megapixel sensor to a ten megapixels chip of identical size. As was the case with its predecessor, with dimensions of 4. The Canon PowerShot SX combines its ten megapixel sensor with a 10x optical zoom lens, which offers the range from a somewhat tight 36mm wide-angle to a useful mm telephoto. DIGIC 4 processors started appearing in PowerShot cameras last year, and should offer improvements in the areas of image noise, autofocus and autoexposure.

Compared to the SXIS, Canon has again upped the resolution slightly, taking the SX from a nine megapixel sensor to a ten megapixels chip of identical size. As was the case with its predecessor, with dimensions of 4. The Canon PowerShot SX combines its ten megapixel sensor with a 10x optical zoom lens, which offers the range from a somewhat tight 36mm wide-angle to a useful mm telephoto. DIGIC 4 processors started appearing in PowerShot cameras last year, and should offer improvements in the areas of image noise, autofocus and autoexposure.

Compared to its predecessor, the PowerShot SX also offers slightly increased flash range when the ISO sensitivity is under automatic control, with a maximum reach of 13 feet at wide-angle, or 8.

A pair of alkaline disposables is included in the product bundle. User Report by Mike Pasini People are different. Just looking around at my fellow bus riders, it was obvious. The gracious seniors in the front, facing each other, their canes at rest. The kids carrying backpacks like shields, their ears stuffed with speakers. The readers one-handing their books.

In the next lane were the drivers. What goes for transportation goes for photo gear. Photographers are different. I know what kind of people I am when it comes to Canon PowerShots. What fun is that? Perfect for desert islands and right at home in a bag, too.

Look and Feel. Which is not to say they felt the same to me. For some reason, I kept popping the flash up on the Canon SX when I grabbed it to take it out of my pocket. That luxurious 3. Like its predecessor, the Canon SX is not a small camera. Canon has a longstanding habit of building small cameras a little large. The flagship G11 is a good example, as was the G10 and G9 before it.

And the Canon SX, like the SX before it, shows no effort to miniaturize, although I did manage to get it into my shirt pocket. If you want small, buy an ELPH. The Canon SX has a plastic body with smooth surfaces. Some people may consequently find the grip a little slippery. It never slipped from my hands. The control layout is unchanged and quickly mastered.

The Mode dial is large and easily thumbed from the back. The Shutter button ringed with the Zoom control is also quite large and easy to find. That Zoom control struck me this time around as a bit too elevated it could sit a bit lower than the Shutter button. The Power button, a small rectangular inset behind the Shutter button, could still use further thought.

The LCD is your viewfinder and even holds up pretty well in sunlight. As far as the buttons go, their use should be familiar to any Canon owner. The Menu button brings up the major settings in tabs Playback mode, for example, has a tab for its settings, another for Print function and the Setup tab. And finally the buttons themselves handle the most used functions EV, for example, is on one of them. This works well, although I continually shake my head at the shell game Canon plays moving functions from the menu system to the buttons.

Buttons are the most direct way to do anything, and the Canon SX makes good use of them. You can press the top, bottom, left, and right sides of the navigator to move upward, downward, left, and right where necessary. Down cycles through the shutter release modes. Left cycles through the focusing modes and Right through the Flash modes.

But the Control dial also spins, speeding navigation. Then any spin of the Control dial displays the available Scene modes. In Playback, a spin takes you through the images quickly. Above the Control dial are two buttons, one to toggle Face Detection on and off and the other to set EV. Below the Control dial are two more buttons. One cycles through the Display modes and the other is the Menu button.

Just above the controls is the rather lonely Playback button. Pressing the Playback button again or the Shutter button takes you back to Record. Playback also powers down the camera, a nice touch. The lens, which appears to be exactly the same one used in the SX, is the big draw on the Canon SX And when you remember that Canon has included its optical image stabilization, you just have to shake your head.

Up and down -- with a smile. Macro focusing at wide-angle ranges between 0. Not the Canon SX There will be days you just shoot in macro. Canon includes optical image stabilization with the PowerShot SX, too. As with any 10x zoom, Canon had to make some optical compromises. At full telephoto details were somewhat soft overall. Barrel distortion was average, but noticeable at wide-angle, while pincushion at telephoto was only slightly noticeable in some images.

We also found moderate chromatic aberration at wide-angle that became much stronger at telephoto focal lengths. One of the best things about the Canon SX is its inclusion of manual shooting modes, which are often neglected on PowerShots. In semi-auto modes, spin the Control dial to adjust the aperture or shutter speed. In Manual mode, where both are adjustable, the EV button toggles between them. In Program AE, if you half-press the Shutter button then press the EV button, you can spin the Control dial to change aperture and shutter speed combinations without changing the exposure.

Auto restricts the Function menu to image size and quality options. You can zoom and use the flash if you raise it but otherwise, no options. The Mode dial, which is fairly firm, includes a few Scene modes you might use frequently. VGA Movie. Digital zoom and monaural audio. Click to download AVI file. Finally, the SX offers a Movie mode that can capture x frames at 30 fps, an LP version of that which can capture movies twice as long, and x at 30 fps. Digital zoom is available and monaural audio is recorded by the small speaker near the lens on the front of the camera.

The largest image size from the megapixel sensor is 3, x 2, pixels. A 2GB card will hold fine images and 1, normal images. That same card will hold only a few seconds over a minute of the highest movie quality. But a 2GB card will hold 16 minutes 47 seconds. Single use lithiums provide the most power but are not rechargeable.

Still they make a good choice if you shoot mainly on holidays and rarely any other time. The alkalines included with the camera are the least powerful option, rating just shots using CIPA test methods which take quite a few flash shots. Between those extremes, but closer to the lithiums, are rechargeable Ni-MH batteries.

Those rated shots using CIPA test methods. With the same lens as the previous model, the main factors in image quality evaluation become the higher resolution sensor and the DIGIC 4 processor. Cramming more pixels, then, into a smaller area is a recipe for increased noise. To see how exposure improves with the SX IS, you can compare gallery shots of the hydrant, fire alarm and pen a macro shot , as well as the zoom series which includes digital zoom.

But we had image stabilization going for us, so we shot away. The Scene mode shots retained both detail and color at ISO 3, Note the Light Value for these shots was 2. The color is better on the latter and since Auto ISO went as high as , detail is comparable. Which should be a lesson to us all. Sunset scene mode again turned a lovely pastel sky into a fiery red sunset, greatly overdoing the saturation.

Canon seems to take a conservative approach to image processing, concentrating on face recognition, exposure, and noise reduction. Overall, the Canon PowerShot SX offers a good shooting experience, with a zoom that gets you where you want to go without having to get up.

However, blurring does not stretch very far into the frame. Details are somewhat soft overall at full telephoto, though the strongest blurring again occurs in the lower right corner; and here blurring does extend further into the frame. Wide: Moderate Tele: Bright Chromatic Aberration: Chromatic aberration at wide-angle is moderate, with moderately bright purplish-blue pixels visible.

Telephoto, however, shows much stronger distortion, with very bright blue and yellowish pixels on either side of the target lines.
