"Great Pictures - Terrible Audio"

janisfred, CNET
31 July 2011
  • Pros: Pictures are clear and sharp. Plenty of options for those who don't want to use the manual settings.
  • Cons: Can't take pictures in RAW, and the audio portion of the video is just plain awful. It's ok at recording conversation, but if you try to record anything where the decibel level is high (concert, sporting events) - the audio will be almost inaudible

"Shutter Lag???"

kingtrac, CNET
29 May 2010
  • Pros: I really went for this camera once I noticed the zoom length combined with the small size of the camera. This camera should allow me to take a carry light on an airplane for a trip to my home town while allowing me to take scenics and family pix.
  • Cons: SHUTTER LAG!!! Has anyone else had prolems with a very long shutter lag? By the time the camera actually takes the image the child has been gone for ten minutes.

Canon sx200is

11 May 2010
  • Summary: The Canon sx200is is a good camera but the pop flash is in the wrong place, It is always were we would hold the camera, when you turn it on your fingers will be in the way for it to open, it is a poor design . Canon needs to fix this problem, I have had mine for a month and it already is not working the way it should, sometimes when I turn off ther camera the flash does not go down so I have to push it. Not sure if I will return it or not.

Image quality is compromised

  • Summary: Tried to be too much of everything but needs RAW mode or a better sensor to make it all work. Better to have fewer pixels with higher fidelity.
  • Pros: Portability Manual mode Large screen IS Long reach lens Logical Controls Startup time, shutter lag ok
  • Cons: Picture quality no RAW Flash always pops up Slow Focus flimsy USB door

"Error message and the lens wouldn't retract"

lars364, CNET
16 June 2009
  • Pros: The camera took really great pictures, especially outside. I took a few at my daughters pre-school graduation that weren't so good. It was inside and from a distance, the pictures were very dark and fuzzy.
  • Cons: Error Message. Within a week of using this camea, I got a lens error message and the lens would not retract. I was finally able to get the lens to retract by pushing (forcing) it to close.
