Summary: I loved this camera. It has everything you want and need in a point and shoot with tons of additional options like manual, etc. I actually dropped mine in the Gulf of Mexico - EEK! And I went right back to cannon and bought the same model (newer addition!). It's worth every penny. The zoom is AMAZING and it still fits in your pocket.
Summary: This camera has gone everywhere with me and I absolutely love it! It takes fantastic pictures. We have a boat and I use this everytime some is wakeboarding. I'm able to catch them in mid air when they jump or wreck. I fell off the boat seat while taking pictures and broke the flash :( I taped it down and have used the camera like that for about a year now. I can't take night pictures of course, but the fall didn't affect its day performance at all.
Summary: The camera produces fine pictures with rich colors. The anti-shake lens system is quite effective when zooming in distant subjects at x12. It has a better quality elevated flash that is very effective, and the rechargeable battery retains its charge impressively. The camera costs more, but it offers more.
Summary: I have had this camera for 3 years now and I absolutely love it!! I get great shots of my kids in action, night shots, beach pics, and pics in the snow!! This camera has everything you need and it's compact and user friendly! The zoom is amazing and my pics always look better than my friends and family's even when they are zoomed and cropped. I recently lost this camera and I looked at many options, but this camera was still the best option and value for me....
Summary: This camera is the perfect balance between automatic convenience and manual function of any recent model I have investigated. I really enjoy the heft of it. It is not plastic like its successors in this model line. I wish it was a tiny bit smaller, but it still fits in my jeans pocket. The SX200 is just a power-packed feature camera with a powerful zoom. It is just what I need for snapshots as well as photos that are a bit more involved.
Summary: This camera has all the bells and whistles, but it's heavy and not as compact as some of the others on the market. but the picture quality and zoom is amazing! Overall I wouldn't trade it for any other camera.
Summary: This camera has a lot of options and takes very good quality pictures. I like the zoom and the megapixels... Also the manual settings are fun to play around with, but if I don't want to mess with them I can just put it back on Auto and it will give me great pictures.
