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 Panasonic GF2, which was introduced in February 2011 is a Entry-Level Mirrorless camera with a 12.0MP Four Thirds sensor. There is 18 months difference between SX120 IS and GF2 so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger GF2, especially in sensor tech.
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 Panasonic GF2 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 Panasonic GF2 compares and hopefully end up with enough arguments to decide which one is better for you.
