After the flash stopped working my my other camera I have been looking for a new camera. I did a lot of research on what I wanted in a camera and read other reviews and I found the Canon PowerShot SX120. I have had it about a month now and I absolutely have no regrets buying this camera. I love the quality of the pictures that it takes. They are so crisp looking. I can zoom in pretty far and still get a good quality non blurry picture which is good because I like to zoom in on random objects to take picures. I love how it has a image stabilazation to keep the picture from getting blury from your hand shaking. That is a great add on to the camera. I have been using energizer lithium batteries and have only had to change the batteries once. Which is a good thing because like any mom I take a bunch of pictures of my boys. The shutter speed is pretty good too, I click it and there isnt any delay, it takes the picture right then. With kids that is an important feature because they move a lot. I think this camera is definately worth the money and I would buy it again if i needed a new camera.
