Have had my SX120-IS for almost a year now. Got it at Walmart when they brought the price down just before the SX130-IS came out. Just did my first serious work with it two weeks ago at a family reunion shoot. My main setup was an S5-IS with an old 380EX flash on a recovered Nikon side-by-side bracket. Used the SX120 for the more "candid" shots and just fell in love with it. Can not believe how versatile it is. The only problem I noted was the weak flash. I prefer to lock the ISO at 200 to keep the graininess to a minimum, but then flash exposure suffers on the more distant shots. Am considering the aux flash unit. I chose both the S5 and the SX120 for their use of AA batteries. As much as possible, I use NiMH rechargeables, but always keep a handful of disposals just in case. I dearly love my Digital Rebel and my old Power Shot G1, but when their BP12's run down, you are out of business for several hours while they recharge. Sorry ! It was a paid shoot, they were not my family, and I didn't get any releases, so can not safely post anything here. Will try to come up with something interesting and postable over the next few weeks.

Hey Mike

Any thoughts about adding the SX130-IS to this thread ? I was going to give my SX120 to my sis and get a new SX130 for myself until I saw the 130 has a max f# of 3.6 compared to the 120's 2.8, so decided to stay with the 120. That helps not only in lower light situations, but also gives a little more control over depth of field.

these are a fantastic little camera, I love mine (SX120IS) so much so that I have just bought another one...BRAND NEW for £70 including postage :cool:

the new one sits in my camera bag alongside my EOS, the other one now goes to work with my otherhalf everyday (she works with horses)

How do you get those close-ups like the bumble bee and leaf...flash or not and what settings?

Michelle

For those extreme close ups, use the "Macro" function. See page 67 of your manual and note the comments about a tripod and flash. Whether or not you use flash depends on the lighting conditions, but due to the closeness, it may be necessary to diffuse the flash in some way to prevent burn-in.

Good luck !

Regards,

Ted

I still love my SX110 for my pick up and go camera, here's a couple of nice ski shots from last season (since we're almost there again). I also have some nice night shots done with my SX110 I'll have to dig out, as I found taken with the correct exposures and tripod, i could get nice low light shots with it also. Great macro camera. I also have several photos for sale on Istock, taken with this camera and was orginally accepted with photos from my SX110. It is very rare to get point and shoot photos accepted on a stock site as the quality has to be so high. Love my SX110.

I shot these with a Canon SX120IS a couple years ago on a kayak trip to Seymour Inlet on BC's mid-coast.
I liked the SX120IS but am upgrading to a 550D (probably).

looks like you gave it a great workout - nice series - great slug macro!

I'm on my 3rd dslr and my sx110 comes along instead sometimes when I don't feel like lugging 6 lbs of gear on a walk.

My main camera is a 60D (just an amateur). With this I have used an S3IS with CHDK for a few years as a backup. It was handy to slip into a rucksack when out walking or gardening. I have recently updated the backup by buying a refurbished SX130IS from the Canon refurb site on fleabay at just over £60.

I have loaded it with the relevant CHDK and set it up to process in-camera DNGs from the RAW data. So far I'm quite impressed with it. More compact than the S3IS it slips into a pocket quite easily and, from initial tests, gives good results on stills and 720HD video. I live quite close to a heritage steam railway so the video side of things will come in useful. At the price it represents extremely good value for money. As a wearer of glasses the only thing I miss is an adjustable viewfinder as the S3IS had. I guess I will get used to holding the camera out at length and removing my glasses so that I can focus on the LCD screen.

Here's one of my village church. EXIF details should be intact. Obviously the DNG has been processed into a 'web-friendly' jpg.

....and here's one from the heritage railway. Not the best shot I've ever taken but I was still getting used to the camera at this stage.

NIce train shot, Pug.
Steam trains are always good camera fodder.
I wish we had them here.

Thanks Tom. The more I use this little camera the more I get to like it so I'll see if I can get some better train shots. You know - the ones with lots of steam and smoke - not forgetting that the 60D is the one I would normally use for planned outings!!
