Canon PowerShot S120 Features WiFi, Faster Lens

Canon PowerShot S120

Continuing with the trend of built-in WiFi, Canon announces the PowerShot S120 with a faster f/1.8 lens and wireless connectivity. They also updated their CameraWindow app for iOS. Using the tandem, you can capture in Raw+Jpeg with the S120, then send the Jpegs directly to your iOS or Android device for editing and publishing while on the go.

I've tested Canon's WiFi system with the PowerShot N and iPad mini, and I think it works quite well. The new S120 adds robust features such as fast optics, 9.4 fps burst mode, and high ISO capability (12800). Canon charges a premium price for their Raw-shooting compact: $449. But I suspect it will have a very high nimbleosity rating.
