  • Excerpt: Overall quality is okay, but I have to push the exposure down every time - manually.  Everything is washed out. I do not recommend this camera, although the zoom range is enticing.

Wonderful outdoors. Terrible indoors.

  • Summary: Our "big" camera is a Canon Digital Rebel XSI with several lenses and speedlites. But that's not really something you want to carry around all the time, so I picked up the PowerShot SX200 IS as an upgrade from our aging Canon PowerShot SD500 , hoping it would bridge the gap between the Canon SD series and an SLR. Initial impressions were very good. The SX200 is built very well and feels quite solid.

:(

  • Summary: My last camera was a Cannon Ixus 75! I thought the next one up from this would of been this Cannon power shot SX200 but unlike the Ixus 75 it's not shake proof so the photos are out of focus more often, Its so hard to zoom in & take a photo without it being fuzzy! also with my Ixus I could take a photo of a photo & it be a perfect photo but with the powershot you are unable too! happy with the seller but not the camera it's self!

Awkward and Cumbersome

David Howells "david", Amazon

  • Summary: This photographs well, clear and sharp, with excellent 12 X zoom, but the medium range zoom is nowhere near as good as the equivalent Panasonic model. In fact I urge anyone thinking of buying a Cannon SX 200 to make sure they try the equivalent Pansonic because this is bulky and awkward to use.

Excellent zoom makes for a large camera with annoying pop up flash

  • Summary: I had a Canon Ixus 800IS and loved it. I could hold it in one hand and it's curved edges made it a comfortable fit. Very sturdy too, until the exposure went after 3 years of heavy use. As the repair was almost as much as a new camera I researched what I would like next. I wanted to stay with Canon as I was happy with the software and didn't want the extra expense of different batteries and memory cards.

  • Summary: The SX200 just misses the target for me and it does so for no other reason than sloppyness and unexplainabley poor design decisions on the part of Canon. The SX200 is not a particularly large camera but it's not truely compact either. It will fit in your pocket but not totally unobrusively, you'll always be very much aware that you are carrying it around. The number one feature of the SX200 has to be the 12x zoom lens.
  • Pros: 12x zoom lens, HD video, some good picture modes
  • Cons: irritating pop up flash behaviour, .mov QuickTime video format, control wheels

Failed after a week

Mr. J. P. Jeffery, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this camera for a trip to Greece. Took some amazing pictures, good colors and images quite sharp. But sadly the camera stopped working after a week with the message "lens error, please restart" being displayed when trying to turn it on. Basically this means the camera is stuffed and needs to be replaced. I own a number of Canon products which I am impressed with so was disappointed with this.

Baixa QUalidade das Fotos (180 dpi)

LEMEVA01, MercadoLibre
25 May 2013
  • Summary: Comprei e saí para uma viagem a Machu Picchu. Tirei várias fotos e a decepção foi grande. A qualidade das fotos é ruim... Mesmo utilizando resolução de 8 MegaPixels + "Compressão Fina", as fotos ficaram com baixa definição, coloração "artificial", contorno das imagens exagerado, ou seja, MUITO RUIM. Achei que estava usando errado os ajustes de velocidade e obturador e passei a utilizar o automático. Mesmo assim, continuou horrível.
  • Pros: a lente 5:60mm;, total controle de velocidade e abertura;, zoom 12x óptico;, o display de 3 polegadas.
  • Cons: baixa qualidade da imagem gerada

Niederschmetternder Langzeit- Erfahrungsbericht

Kalla-der-kaefer, Ciao
2 February 2012
  • Summary: Hallo Leute, Nach dem meine Casio Exilim EX-P700 so langsam in die Jahre gekommen war, legte ich mit voller Hoffnung 2009 die Cannon SX200 zu. Die anfängliche Begeisterung schien keine Grenzen zu kennen und ich glaubte die "Eier-legende-Woll-Milch-Sau" gefunden zu haben. -Super Zoom -unglaublicher Nahbereich (mit etwas Geschick, lassen sich sogar die Staubkörner auf der Linse fotografieren) -super Standard Weitwinkel -angemessene Akkulaufzeiten -angenehm kompakt und gut...
  • Pros: Tolle Objektiv Eigenschaften und gut zu händeln
  • Cons: minderwertige und grenzenlos unüberlegte Konstruktion > nach 2 Jahren ein Fall für die Mülltonne
