12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor
The PowerShot S120 camera employs a Canon 12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor, which delivers state-of-the-art imaging performance and is optimized for use in compact cameras. Utilizing a sophisticated light-capturing design, it provides high sensitivity for improved high ISO capture with reduced noise. It is capable of rapidly capturing and moving image data to the processor, enabling faster continuous shooting and faster autofocus.
Canon DIGIC 6 Image Processor
The PowerShot S120 camera is equipped with the very latest Canon proprietary processor, the DIGIC 6 Image Processor, which makes several important advancements to image quality both in stills and video. Improved light sensitivity allows for higher resolution with less noise when shooting in dark conditions, and Dynamic IS now detects and compensates for tilt and parallel movement (shift blur) to create video that's exceptionally free of distortion. The DIGIC 6 Image Processor also enhances the performance capabilities of the PowerShot S120, powering full resolution high-speed continuous stills shooting. And video recording is better than ever, as the DIGIC 6 Image Processor enables Full HD at 60p, as well as MP4 recording. Plus, with MF Peaking possible thanks to the new processor, you'll have a pro-level focusing tool at your disposal.
A bright f/1.8 lens with 5x Optical Zoom and wide angle of view
Newly engineered for the PowerShot S120 camera, the 24mm Wide-Angle 5x Optical Zoom lens with a focal length of 5.2-26.0mm (35mm film equivalent: 24-120mm) achieves f/1.8-f/5.7, giving the user exceptional versatility. The large f/1.8 aperture achieves shallow depth-of-field for creating portraits with beautiful, soft background blur, and incomparable Canon optical technology delivers a high performance lens enabling incredible images, even in low light. The Wide-Angle lens gives your images a distinctive sweep and grandeur, capturing landscapes, cityscapes, tall buildings and wide groups of people with ease.
1080p/60p Full HD video
With the camera's advanced DIGIC 6 Image Processor enabling MP4 format recording, the PowerShot S120 camera lets you shoot Full HD video at a selectable frame rate of 60 fps or 30 fps (or 15 fps in Star Time-Lapse Movie mode). 1080p/60p Full HD video is extraordinarily smooth and rich in playback, ensuring that your important memories and creative film clips look their absolute best. Video recorded at 30 fps has also been improved through the combination of the DIGIC 6 Image Processor and Fine Movie Detail Processing, with reduced noise and high resolution. It's possible to use the full range of the zoom when capturing video, and sound is recorded in stereo for high-quality audio that complements the outstanding images. Plus, a dedicated movie button prominently located on the camera body and HDMI terminal enabling immediate output to an HDTV make the entire process of shooting to sharing convenient and easy.
