3 October 2009
Summary: The Canon Powershot SX200 is a budget ultra-zoom with a rather compact body, a wide-angle lens with 12X stabilized optical zoom lens and full manual controls. Canon did a good job selecting the features to put in this digital camera, giving a very flexible zoom range and a complete set of manual...
Pros: 12X Wide-angle optical zoom in compact body, Good lens sharpness, Excellent white-balance, Reliable exposure, Generally low noise, Low optical distortion, Accurate but slow focus, Good LCD visibility, Generally responsive, Good build quality
Summary: On paper, the Canon PowerShot SX200 IS looks great. In the flesh, it's a disappointment. It's bulky, has annoying design and control issues, and the picture quality is variable. It's still a versatile camera that can be used to take great pictures, but it promises much more than it delivers
Pros: Effective image stabilisation; 12x zoom range; decent range of manual modes.
Cons: Pop-up flash; spinning control dial; mediocre picture quality.
