With the Powershot SX120 IS Canon brings a very compact bridge camera that is also a real lightweight at 290 grams. To change the flash mode, you must first raise the pop-up flash manually. A dial is mainly available for operation, which was a bit too smooth in the test.

picture quality

The resolution of the Canon Powershot SX120 IS decreased by around 20 percentage points towards the edge of the image, which is still acceptable. Overall, the camera achieved a satisfactory efficiency of 68.1 percent – converted to the effective resolution, this corresponds to 4.6 megapixels. The noise behavior of the Canon Powershot SX120 IS was satisfactory at ISO 200 and 400. The other measurements showed greater image errors and sufficient to poor results.

The input dynamic of the Canon Powershot SX120 IS was very high. This means that the camera can also display high-contrast motifs without lights outshining or shading. The output dynamics, which indicates the number of brightness levels that a camera uses between the lightest and darkest image areas, was satisfactory.

Furnishing

As the name suggests, the Canon Powershot SX120 IS uses an optical image stabilizer that works with movable lenses in the lens. It is especially important if you want to take full advantage of the camera's 10x zoom lens.

Semi-automatic functions are available for more influence on the exposure. The camera's display is 3 inches, which corresponds to a screen diagonal of 7.62 centimeters. In video mode, the Canon Powershot SX120 IS works with 640 x 480 pixels and 30 frames per second.

handling

In addition to the familiar automatic mode, the Canon Powershot SX120 IS can be switched to the smart automatic mode, in which the camera independently selects one of 18 exposure programs depending on the subject. In the easy mode, all buttons that are not required are also deactivated, which makes operation easier for newcomers to photography.

Conclusion Canon Powershot SX120 IS

The Canon Powershot SX120 IS is a very affordable, versatile superzoom digital camera that actually only lacks a wide-angle lens. Because the focal length range only begins at 36 millimeters. The image quality of the Canon Powershot SX120 IS was okay, the input dynamic was even above average. One point of criticism, however, was the somewhat increased image noise. Still, the performance is okay for the price.

Alternatives

The Canon Powershot A2100 IS costs about the same as the Canon Powershot SX120 IS, but did a little better in terms of image quality – especially in terms of efficiency.leadership and community service essay The Canon Powershot A2100 IS only offers a 6x zoom lens and no semi-automatic functions.

With its two-tone housing – optionally silver-black, gray-black or pink-black – the Olympus Mju 7010 is a real eye-catcher. Even with its equipment, especially the 7x zoom lens with a focal length from 28 millimeters, the digital camera does not have to hide.

The Magic Filters of the Olympus Mju 7010 embellish motifs and transform them into a drawing, for example. You can also choose to give them strong distortion à la fisheye, darken the edges like a pinhole camera or intensify the colors. In addition, the digital camera uses a digital image stabilizer and optimizes portraits using the beauty shot.

picture quality

With a long focal length, the resolution of the Olympus Mju 7010 was almost uniform. On the other hand, the measured values ​​in the wide-angle and telephoto areas decreased significantly towards the edge of the image, which meant that the efficiency of the digital camera only just missed the mark of “sufficient”. We were able to rate the sharpening and input dynamics of the Olympus Mju 7010 significantly better, namely with the rating “good”. The higher the input dynamics of a digital camera, the better it displays high-contrast motifs without drowning out lights and shadows.

The output dynamics, which indicates the number of brightness levels between the lightest and darkest areas of the image, were only sufficient. The noise behavior of the Olympus Mju 7010 could not convince us either, since the digital camera produced clear image errors even at low sensitivity values.

handling

We liked the operating concept of the Olympus Mju 7010 a lot. In iAUTO mode, the digital camera takes over all the settings itself. Select the conventional automatic mode and use the FUNC button to change all important image parameters.

Conclusion Olympus Mju 7010

The technical data of the Olympus Mju 7010 promise a lot. Unfortunately, the digital camera could not keep this promise. We found some flaws, especially in the image quality, that quickly reduce the photo enjoyment. The 11.8 megapixel model only achieved an efficiency of 51.5 percent – good digital cameras achieve around 70 percent here. The Olympus Mju 7010 is very compact and easy to use.

Alternatives

For around 60 euros less, you can get the Olympus Mju 5000, an 11.8 megapixel camera with a 5x zoom lens. You have to do without the 28mm focal length with this digital camera. In return, the model produced less picture noise and a higher degree of efficiency than the Olympus Mju 7010.
