Camera Review
Introduction | Canon PowerShot S120 sensor performance | Canon PowerShot S120 versus competition | Conclusion

In our tests, the PowerShot S120 attained a DxOMark Sensor score of 56 points, and slightly higher than expected for a camera like this. Scores are just ahead of the Nikon P7800. The Canon has nearly identical color depth but a fraction wider dynamic range (at base) and slightly better low-light scores. In real world use there would be very little between them on image quality, though difference in the low-light performance may just be noticeable to the trained eye.
