Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Canon SX120 IS, which was introduced in August 2009 is a Small Sensor Compact camera with a 10.0MP 1/2.5-inch sensor whereas Olympus E-P3, which was introduced in August 2011 is a Entry-Level Mirrorless camera with a 12.0MP Four Thirds sensor. As you can see, SX120 IS is 2 years older than E-P3. Let's see if this age difference between two cameras makes a big difference.
Comparing an interchangeble lens camera to a fixed lens camera is a bit tricky but we will do our best to make this a fair comparison.
Here is a brief look at the main features of Canon SX120 IS and Olympus E-P3 before getting into our more detailed comparison.
Let's read on the following sections in order to better understand in detail how Canon SX120 IS and Olympus E-P3 compares and hopefully end up with enough arguments to decide which one is better for you.
