Wonderful little camera!

Summary: I've had this camera for a little over a year and a half now and I just love it. It's really small, which is a huge plus. Because of the small size, it's very convenient to take with you and that means you end up taking more pictures than you normally would.
Summary: I purchased both a Minolta Dimage F100 and this Canon S200 for work. We compared the two as close to Apples-to-Apples as we could. The Minolta has a little more optical zoom (3x) and more mega pixels (3Meg) as opposed to the Canon 2x optical zoom and 2Mega pixels.
Summary: I, as many others, have waited for many years for the convergence of price, features, size and ease of use to hit that happy center point. Well wait no more! This Camera is just plain FUN. I have had it for 5 months and barely a day has gone by that I haven't used it.
Summary: Wow, I have searched for a quality digital camera and found one. It's only 2 megapixels, but it is more than adequate. The pictures I took were all great, the close up shots for detail shots are incredible perfect color and lighting everytime. I had a hard time between this one and a Canon A60.
Summary: I just received my Canon S200 and have done some test shooting. The bottom line is that this camera will take great pictures in the auto mode if you want a point-and-click camera, and it has plenty of advanced features if you're a more experienced user.
Summary: You want the truth, can you handle the truth? Let's begin with my title, "The good, the bad, and the ugly"...THE UGLY-well, there is no ugly. The camera looks that good. Just taking the camera with you will make you cool (I mean, not that I needed any help or anything, but if you do, that's ok and...
Summary: The best digitals still can't quite match the best film cameras for those most challenging of shots. But unless you're a professional photographer, you won't even notice the subtle differences, much less appreciate them.
Summary: It took me a long time to decide to "go digital" and even longer to figure out which specific camera to buy. I'm fairly techno-crippled (faxes and microwaves still seem like magic to me and I still have to rely on my children to program my VCR).
Summary: Great little camera. If you want a carrying case, I'd skip the hard-to-find official PowerShot case. It's flimsy and not fully sealed, with just a little velcro holding the camera in. Get the LowePro D-Res 8S, it's better made, padded, and just a bit bulkier.
Tiny camera, yet far superior to all the others in its class

Summary: It's amazing what you can fit in such a small package. You can read the features, I won't waste time there, but what I can say is that this is the best digital camera in its class, hands down. I have tried Olympus, Fuji, Sony, etc. etc., but nothing comes close to this camera.
