Thanks Sarah.

Next time (here I go again), please post a link, because sites like tinypic are image hosting websites designed for forum uses (because of resolution limits like on this forum)

And for my previous posts, I tried to be friendly. I specifically said that the comments are not to criticize someone's efforts, but as reasons why sub VGA pictures do not reflect anything about the camera.

Again, I apologize if my words caused confusion and taken badly.

Well, that is great, Chengbin-

Does that mean that you like the Canon SX-120 camera?

Yes.

There are a few things I don't like, such as video recording quality (SD, and it uses MJPEG??? That's the worse format to use, only for very incapable chips). It is only 10mp, not 12, not what I'd liked. But as I said before it is mostly psychological comfort. It also doesn't have a grip for the right hand that I LOVED from the Fujifilm E550, and the lens are protruding, not concealed in the camera. But then the 10x zoom is really attractive.

Anyway, the positive far outweigh the negative. It ticked every "must" box I have, and many "nice to have" boxes as well (extended zoom, pop up flash, and large screen)

I don't think I can complain much, especially for $210 if I can price match it from Bestbuy. I wish the SX200 used AA batteries, otherwise that would have been the perfect camera, even though it is slightly out of my budget.

Chengbin-

Many stores here in the USA have the Canon SX-120 listed for Christmas at $(US)199.00. Most folks don't like that the SX-200's built-in flash pops up, no matyer whether you need it or not on power-up.

Well, we pay a hefty price difference in Canada.

Does the SX120's flash pop up on power up?

Casd is 100% correct-

The Canon SX-120's built-in flash is manually deployed.
