The Canon PowerShot S120 was released in August 2013 as a 12 megapixel compact camera. It is said to be faster than previous S models and possesses a better video mode with a 24 mm - 120 mm focal length and f/ 1.8 - 5.7 aperture range. The LCD touchscreen has been improved as well as the new hidden flash, which pops up using a switch found on the left of the camera. It has been highly reviewed for its great lens and large sensor as well as the inclusion of Wi-Fi connectivity. The S120 is much smaller than its predecessor and lacks a hot shoe for flash attachment, there is a wireless option using the HF - DC 2 flash unit (sold separately) that increases the flash range by about 30 feet.
