Excerpt: This almost retro model is a curiosity. It has the same (excellent but now comparatively low count 10.1 megapixel) image sensor as the older "semi-pro" PowerShot S95 but with a faster and wider angle lens plus an only one-version back version of the DIGIX processor of newer Canon cameras. I have owned an S95 for four years and been very happy with it. The CCD (i.e.
Excerpt: A good camera l and fine value-for-money. The Canon PowerShot S200 is much like my three-year old Powershot S95 and other S series cameras much liked by professional photographers wanting a pocketable camera with superior image quality and manual overrides. The S200 has the same but now harder-to-find, high quality CCD sensor of the S95.
Summary: I have used several of these cameras for my work as an appraiser. I really like the size and it fits in my trouser pocket. For me I need low res (480x680) as I have to take several photos & put them in my report & then send thru a portal; the small size is ideal for me. The metal case adds to the design.
Summary: They don't make them like this any longer. Built like a tank and made for the long haul this little workhorse keeps chuggin along! Thank you canon and keep up the good work. Best Regards, David J Bhaltazhar Esq.
Summary: This camera is a complete antique by today's standards. I bought it without checking the digital card size, thinking I could use it to review trail camera's pictures I have set up for security around my place. Forgot all about the old style, large digital cards of years back, when this camera was manufactured. The new Cannon ELPH series are terrific cameras. I have a new one I like very well. This one will be donated away!
Summary: I have had a couple of these in the last six years, use them for all my photos, eBay, home and work. They have enough features to get the job done, size is good a little heavy but I don't mind that translates into durable. I have bought all my S200 camears used and they value has been great, over all I like the rechargable battery pack the best, I just remember to take a spare if I'm going out.
