Care Plan for Digital Cameras

A Care Plan protects your digital camera if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap.

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month

Product details

Capturing everything from beautiful close-ups to fast-paced action, the Canon PowerShot S120 High Performance Compact Digital Camera delivers a responsive, connected and expert performance.

Picture-perfect photos

Combining a 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor with a DIGIC 6 image processor, the compact Canon captures more image detail and packs it into every photo for pin-sharp and vivid images. The processor engine drives a superb low-light performance, reducing image noise for high clarity photos with natural colour tones.

Brilliant optics

The versatile f/1.8 lens extends your shooting ability, allowing you to capture more detail in darker conditions. The 24 mm ultra-wide angle capability means you can capture spectacular scenes in broader frames.

A 5x optical zoom range gets you close to the subject without compromising quality. What's more, a ZoomPlus feature doubles the zoom range to 10x by combining both optical and digital zoom.

The intelligent image stabilisation system counteracts shake and blur. This technology works with the enhanced dynamic IS to compensate for user movement, resulting in spectacularly steady stills and movies.

Wireless sharing

Canon's PowerShot S120 integrates WiFi and GPS technology. Connect to your home network and other portable devices without the need of wires.

This handy connectivity allows you to share images online in an instant. It also spares the need to use cables when printing on a compatible Canon WiFi printer.

The GPS feature lets you use your smartphone's GPS functionality to track shooting locations, attaching more information to each photo. All you need to do is sync the S120 camera over WiFi.

Expert control

View your snaps and navigate settings on the crisp and clear 3-inch 922k dot capacitive touchscreen, giving you simple and intuitive camera control.

Stay in full control over every composition, the lens control ring giving you instant control over composing functions such as the shutter, focus and ISO. The refined ergonomics and customisable menu allows you to set the camera control to your shooting style.

Photography features

With high-speed burst shooting you can shoot split-second action at 9.4 shots per second, in full resolution – so you won't miss that fast moving subject again.

Smart Auto works by select the optimum camera settings from 58 variants to achieve the best possible results.

Capture beautifully creative shots with Star Mode, handheld HDR and Background Defocus. Star Mode is a great way to shoot the starry nightscape, capturing star trails or star time-lapse movies. Use HDR to high contrast scenes without a tripod and the Background Defocus to achieve gorgeous background blur, perfect for portraits.

HD movies

Shoot superb Full HD moments with optical zoom capability and high quality stereo sound. Record Full HD movies at 60 frames per second with Focus Peaking and Touch AF control. The HDMI-CEC connection provides a swift link to an HDTV with minimal quality loss for an enjoyable playback.

Bringing the best out of compact photography, the Canon PowerShot S120 High Performance Compact Digital Camera puts serious camera performance into your pocket.
