I like taking photographs with this camera, but I wish it were lighter and flatter and the batteries lasted longer. With the different settings, including videotaping, I can feel like more of a photographer than I actually am. Image Quality The Canon PowerShot 120 IS has pretty good image quality, but it's obviously not a professional's camera. Performance The camera can take better pictures if you know how to control the settings, which I do not. It takes good enough pictures for casual photographers. Ease of Use The Canon PowerShot 120 IS has an "Easy" setting that works really well. It takes care of lighting and focus. The "Auto" setting is also good for casual photographers like me who want to be able to focus the camera and have some choices but don't want to set everything for each photograph. Durability I've had this camera for a few years, and it's still good as new. It has not needed any repairs. Battery Life Whether it's the batteries themselves or the camera, occasionally I have had problems with batteries wearing out as soon as I put them in the camera. Usually this is not an issue, though. Portability The Canon PowerShot 120 IS is heavy compared to other cameras. It's also too bulky to go in a pocket and takes up room in a purse.
