Canon IXUS 200 IS Digital Camera Review

Buy-n-Shoot.com
17 June 2010
  • Conclusion: For those with good dexterity and the ability to multi-task, the combination of physical buttons and touch screen operation will delight. For the rest of you, it may well be worth persisting with what can initially be the slightly awkward controlling of the IXUS 200 IS as once this minor hurdle is...

  • Conclusion: Canon's first touch-screen point-and-shoot camera, the PowerShot SD980 IS masters the touch-screen shooting experience, but some wide-angle image-quality issues hold it back from true greatness.
  • Pros: Responsive touch screen with intuitive interface. Fast shooting speeds. 720p30 HD video capture. 24mm wide-angle lens. Accelerometer-based navigation. Mini HDMI out.
  • Cons: Significant barrel distortion at wide angle lens position. Soft image details at the edge of the frame.

CNET
5 November 2009
  • Summary: With the Digital IXUS 200 IS, Canon seems to have aimed for steady evolution rather than technical innovation. The 200 is a perfectly decent camera, but it's far from a must-have
  • Pros: Good zoom range; decent lens quality; effective touchscreen controls.
  • Cons: Black borders on the LCD display when shooting stills; over-sensitive rear control dial; weak definition at high ISOs.

  • Conclusion: Apart from some fiddly controls the IXUS 200 IS is very nice to use and the active screen technology is great, particularly when selecting the focus point on the screen or the vertical shutter trigger.
  • Pros: Build, styling HD video, image quality at lower ISO, touch screen
  • Cons: The auto/stills/video mode slider switch is fiddly; mode dial is on the small size, high ISO image noise, no optical viewfinder

  • Conclusion: This camera has a got a lot going for it, but doesn’t quite deliver as well indoors as it does outdoors. Perfect for the outdoors photographer though.

Canon Ixus 200 IS review

18 November 2009
  • Excerpt: The Ixus 200 IS is Canon's first touchscreen camera, and it's a joy to behold. The metal lozenge shell - available in purple, bronze, blue or silver - and contoured buttons bring to mind a luxury car. It's just as slick to use as it is to look at.

  • Summary: Given that this is a point and shoot pocket camera, not a tank-like super zoom nor bridge model, Canon may struggle to justify the price of the Digital IXUS 200 IS and indeed a quick internet search will reveal better deals; we found one major retailer offering it from £270 at the time of writing...
