The S120 gives you full manual control over settings, meaning you can create long exposures such as this. Optical image stabilisation does a good job of helping to produce a blur-free image even when shooting handheld.
Noise is apparent at very high sensitivities, such as ISO 3200 but, shared at smaller print and web sizes, the image is more than acceptable.
Automatic white balance has done a good job of producing accurate colours even under the artificial lighting conditions of this scene.
The S120's 24mm equivalent lens gives a great wide angle of view for a variety of different scenarios. It's slightly wider than the G16's 28mm.
The S120 is now capable of shooting as wide as f/1.8, helping when you want to shoot low-light scenes.
Colours are represented accurately by the S120, being bright and punchy without going over the top.
