Canon PowerShot SX200 IS

 

For $350, the Canon PowerShot SX200 IS serves up a heaping helping of camera. The marquee feature in this recent addition to Canon's point-and-shoot line is its 12X-optical-zoom lens, which reaches from 28mm on the wide-angle end to 336mm on the...

Excellent zoom lens and image quality ; HD video and fun in-camera features

HDMI/AV port door is a bit flimsy ; Bulky, with no AA battery compatibility

A beast of a lens, great image quality, and fun in-camera features make the SX200 IS a phenomenal pocket megazoom.

Canon PowerShot SX200 IS review

 

The Canon PowerShot SX200 IS is remarkably equipped for what's ostensibly a point-and-shoot camera. Sure, the wide-angle lens with 12x zoom in a reasonably compact body is the big draw; but there's also the HD video recording abilities and the full...

Compact body with wide-angle lens with 12x zoom; manual controls; very good photo and video quality for its class.

Mixed performance; no optical zoom in Movie mode.

More than just a point-and-shoot pocket megazoom, the Canon SX200 IS improves upon its forerunner, but not by much.

Canon PowerShot SX200 IS review

 

The introduction of the Canon PowerShot SX200IS is Canon's response to Panasonic's success with the TravelZoom series Megazoom cameras. To be honest, we had been baffled for quite a while by the fact that Canon, as well as all the other camera...

Canon PowerShot SX200 IS Review

 

The PowerShot SX200 IS represents Canon's first foray into the travel-zoom compact camera market, and it certainly offers a lot of features on paper. There's a 12x, 28-336mm optical zoom lens with built-in image stabilizer, 12 megapixel CCD sensor, 3...

The Canon PowerShot SX200 IS is an excellent first attempt at a travel-zoom camera, but ultimately it can't quite match its main rival, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7. Starting with the positives, the SX200 IS's main point of differentiation is the PASM...
