Great Camera for the Beginner

  • Summary: Designed as an easy-to-use, entry-level digital camera, the new PowerShot A200 combines a 2- megapixel CCD chip with several advanced camera features to create high-quality digital photos at an affordable price. In addition, by connecting directly to Canon's CP-100 dye-sublimation printer, first-time users of digital cameras can make high-quality color prints without the complexity of a computer.

Please Dont buy this!!!!

Amazon
5 June 2006
  • Summary: My dad got this camera free about a year ago. I finally learned how to step the camera up. I had to read the whole manual to do so. So far this camera has been horrible. It takes forever to focus, and the batteries run out after one day. If you have pets or small children this camera is not for you, because it takes to long to take pictures. ALso this camera comes with 2 MP. SO you can only hold up to 8-10 pictures at once.

Terrible Camera

Al3ee, Amazon
29 July 2004
  • Summary: I got this camera for my birthday, and boy was I dissappointed with it. Every time I turned it on it said change the batteries. I changed the batteries and nothing happened. So I returned it and got the same one(I though mine was defective.) It had the same problem! So I returned it again and got the same one. The same problem!!!! But this time I got it to work for a minute. I took 2 or 3 pictures. The Digital zoom on it is terrible.

Recycle time stinks! Choose something else...

  • Summary: Overall, the A200 takes decent pictures. I've used the included software to send pictures via email, and I use an HP Photo printer when I want to print out pictures. Unfortunately, I have finally gotten tired of the S-L-O-W recycle time - that is, it takes forever for the flash to recharge and the lens to refocus after taking a previous photo. Groups posing for pictures have literally gotten up and said, "Forget it!

Beware of the flash

Brandi, Amazon
23 February 2004
  • Summary: I find that this is a great camera for taking pictures outside. However, while inside, the camera is pretty useless unless you're a foot away from your subject. In fact, the camera tends to work better in full darkness rather than in partial light. Often I find myself having to carry a disposable camera with me which I use for inside or nighttime pictures. Also, the flash cannot be turned off...I've tried.

it's not horrible, but i wish i hadn't

  • Summary: i thought i did all the research. i thought i had picked the best camera. i'm glad that it wasn't me who spent the money. i got it as a gift. this camera isn't the worst one on the market, but i have yet to see why this camera would be beneficial over any other cameras. the worst part, i found, was how long it took to focus and how long it took to recharge after using the flash.

real nice cam for price

aman4allseasons "Jerry B", Amazon
26 May 2003
  • Summary: ...I thought [this] was a good buy this is a nice peice of equipment. The only things I would like better about the cam is when you record movies. One is that it dont record sound, second you cant zoom when recodring a video, and finally third it only records for 10 seconds at a time. It does a good job for taking pics which it what a digital cam is for so it does its job the whole video idea is a bonus deal anyway. It is a geat cam for its price belive me.

Make another choice...

Tony, Amazon
24 May 2003
  • Summary: Canon makes some good digital cameras, but this isn't one of them. The main problem is that the camera takes too long to get it's autofocus in order before it takes the picture. More often than not, the picture doesn't take at all. You can't just point and shoot. The focusing takes several seconds, meanwhile the photo oppourtunity has long since vanished.

Total Waste Of Money!!

Brad Cooper "Author of Guilty by Association", Amazon
14 April 2003
  • Summary: I bought this camera right before I was due to have my baby. I thought it would be great to take pics of the little guy & be able to email them to my friends & family. I have had more problems with this camera. It was a total waste of $$!! The picture was so difficult to take. It took so long for it to actually take the picture that 9 out of 10 times I missed the shot altogether. And, that was when it actually worked!!
