For all its easy operability, the PowerShot SX200 IS has a feature set to be reckoned with. 12.1-megapixel resolution delivers a wealth of detail to every image, and allows you to crop and enlarge any portion of your shot freely. With the camera's powerful 12x optical zoom, you'll get up close fast, handy at sports and school events as well as everyday creative shooting. The 28mm wide-angle lens captures more in every frame, and gives your photography a professional edge.

The PowerShot SX200 IS is equipped with Canon's acclaimed Optical Image Stabilizer Technology that automatically detects and corrects camera shake - one of the leading causes of fuzzy or blurred shots. Even when zoomed in, you can get the steady, crisp, brilliant images you'll be proud to shoot and share. And Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer Technology is so convenient to use. It functions perfectly with or without a flash.

So whether you're photographing flowers, a captivating sunset, or your friends at the park, you can be confident that you're getting dramatic, memorable images.

Shooting Modes
Advanced presets for the best possible photos under certain conditions.
With 23 Shooting Modes including 11 Special Scene Modes, you're ready for whatever shot comes your way.

HD movie shooting capability plus HDMI output for easy playback of video and photos on your HDTV.
The PowerShot SX200 IS lets you record video in beautiful high definition (1280 x 720 pixels). The camera also makes it easy to enjoy HD movies (and still photos) on your HDTV with an mini-HDMI connector for direct connection to a high-definition monitor. You'll enjoy the HD experience with no degradation of image or audio in the signal, plus the ability to display up to 130 still images at once.

Blink Detection alerts a shooter after a shot has been taken that a subject had closed eyes.
Blinking subjects can ruin the best shots, and the problem usually isn't detected until it's too late to do anything about it. The PowerShot SX200 IS is equipped with Canon's new Blink Detection to combat this common image flaw. The feature uses the power of Face Detection to determine whether any subject in the previous shot had closed eyes. If closed eyes are detected, a "blink warning" icon appears for 3 seconds, allowing you to re-take the shot before your subject or subjects move on.

Large 3.0-inch LCD (230,000 dots) with high resolution and wide viewing angle.
The camera's high resolution (230,000 dots) 3.0-inch LCD with gives you the big picture, whether you're shooting, reviewing or showing off your images. This high-resolution screen offers a crisp, clear picture to make shooting, playback and using the camera's menu functions especially convenient. Clear and bright, it also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light. It also has an electronic viewfinder that provides sharp images when you shoot close-up with Super Macro shooting mode.

DIGIC 4 Image Processor has evolved Face Detection Technology that tracks the faces of moving subjects and lets the shooter enter the frame seamlessly with the Face Detection Self-timer.
Canon's most advanced image processor, DIGIC 4, delivers evolved Face Detection Technology that keeps every face in every photo looking its very best. The technology finds and tracks the faces of moving subjects until you're ready to shoot, then delivers perfect focus. In addition, exposure, flash and white balance are compensated, so that faces exhibit natural skin tones and backgrounds are properly exposed.

iSAPS Technology is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.

A Face Detection Self-timer automatically detects an increase in the number of faces and makes the appropriate adjustments. For instance, to include the photographer's face in a group shot, there's no need to rush in. Just put the camera on a stand or tripod, specify Face Detection Self-timer, and the camera will wait for the photographer's face to get on-camera before it takes the shot. Motion Detection tracks moving subjects in a much larger range, and the Servo AF retains focus on a moving subject after the shutter button is pressed halfway - allowing you to wait for the perfect shot without refocusing.

Intelligent Contrast Correction
DIGIC 4 also makes possible the i-Contrast (Intelligent Contrast Correction) system, which controls the compensation level in pixel units to brighten dark areas while leaving bright areas unchanged for better images where the main subject is dark, and more natural transition. The PowerShot SX200 IS can even use i-Contrast in playback mode to adjust images that were shot without the setting activated.

Red-eye Correction provides three options for removing red-eye from subjects in flash pictures.
1) Red-eye Correction during shooting actually identifies and corrects red-eye in human subjects as pictures are taken.
2) The PowerShot SX200 IS can be set to automatically detect and correct red-eye during image playback.
3) You can manually locate any red eyes in a scene during image playback on the LCD screen, and command the camera to remove them.

Life doesn't give you second chances to capture special times. That's why the PowerShot SX200 IS features an ISO 1600 setting that reduces the effects of camera shake and sharpens subjects in low-light situations, giving you greater shooting flexibility. ISO can be expanded to 3200 when you select ISO 3200 Special Scene mode.

1 out of 5 stars   NOT so good buy!!!
By One Dissappointed Consumer (Southern California, CA) July 15, 2011
Review submitted for Canon PowerShot SX200IS 12MP 12x Zoom Digital Camera w/ 720P HD Video Recording & HDMI (CNPSSX200ISK)
Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Easy To Use
Cons:
Other Comments: I purchased this BRAND NEW camera on 11/2010 and I am going back for a 2nd repair of the SAME PROBLEM. The camera's zoom and all menu options lock up making the camera function-less! Because it is under warranty, I have hassled the drive to the busiest service center in Irvine, CA to drop off and pick up even though they offer to ship. I feel I cannot trust the camera on a major trip at this stage so what's the point in owning this otherwise expensive (not so wonderful) camera! Just in case you wonder, the camera has a cushioned case and I have BABIED it's protection, hence my PERSONAL VISIT to that BUSY center instead of shipping. This experience has left me EXTREMELY DISSAPPOINTED with CANON regarding their cameras!

4 out of 5 stars   Excellent for compact
By G (California) February 15, 2011
Review submitted for Canon PowerShot SX200IS 12MP 12x Zoom Digital Camera w/ 720P HD Video Recording & HDMI (CNPSSX200ISK)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Manual Controls, Good form factor, Great Zoom, Good Image Quality
Cons: Still just a compact
Other Comments: Was looking for a compact to work in tandem with my film slr (yes I said film). I've had a couple canon A-series through the years and absolutely loved them - excellent image quality/versatility for compacts. This one fits the bill just as well and does so with the help of a big zoom lens. It's a pretty fast lens too. You can move it slow or fast with the toggle switch. Fast is pretty fast for a compact 12x. Slow is nice because it doesn't get twitchy if you only want to zoom a little bit. Overall I'm very happy with this. Full manual control (as with my previous canons) was a 100% necessity for me. I love the controls on this. Canon all the way. If you know canons you won't even have to read the manual. Yes the flash is annoying the way it sticks out all the time, but it's workable. Not a big deal. The big caveat is that this is still just a compact camera with a compact image sensor, so picture quality is not exactly going to blow you away and get you the cover shot of some magazine, but for the price (on sale) it's about as good as it gets in my view. And it's a canon so the color and overall impact of the image is very good even if a little grainy in low light/high iso. Very happy. Highly recommended amongst compacts.

Other Comments: I have purchased other powershots such as the A1000, and i like the layout. The SX200 continues that comfortable feel. I want to do more macro photos and I am learning how to do so with this camera. The only issue I have with the camera is the location of the flash. It pops up and hits your finger or hand. Its a distraction but I am getting use to it.

5 out of 5 stars   I really like this Canon Powershot SX200
By CSC (Cedarburg, WI) November 02, 2010
Review submitted for Canon PowerShot SX200IS 12MP 12x Zoom Digital Camera w/ 720P HD Video Recording & HDMI (CNPSSX200ISK)
Pros: Manual Settings, Good Image Stabilization, Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Large Clear LCD, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light
Cons: No Viewfinder, OnOff Button position
Other Comments: More than just a point and shoot since manual settings are available. No need to manually raise flash. If you want the long zoom, you can't expect the camera to be a whole lot smaller, and this one feels solid. Quality images as is usual with Canon cameras. I'd put the on/off button in a more accessible place.

Review submitted for Canon PowerShot SX200IS 12MP 12x Zoom Digital Camera w/ 720P HD Video Recording & HDMI (CNPSSX200ISK)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Small / Compact, Great Zoom, Nice Body Color, Easy To Use, Short Lag Time, Large Clear LCD, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good in Low Light, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization

Other Comments: The only thing I don't like is the pop up flash, wish it was built in but then the flash quality would not be as good. Bought this for my wife and she takes it every where. This is our 3rd Cannon which we have owned over the past 28 years and they seem to last forever. The other 2 still work but newer is better.

Pros: Nice Body Color, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom

Other Comments: I USED THIS CAMERA RECENTLY TO TAKE SOME WEDDING PHOTOS. THEY CAME OUT GREAT! THE COMBINATION OF OPTICAL AND DIGITAL ZOOM BRINGS YOU OUT TO I THINK X48!!! THIS IS A MASSIVE ZOOM FOR SUCH A COMPACT CAMERA. THE QUALITY OF THE IMAGES ARE GREAT! HIGHLY RECOMENDED! ONE CON. IT IS NOT ULTRA SLIM BUT HOW CAN YOU EXPECT ZOOM OF THAT RANGE IN A PACKAGE ANY SMALLER THAN THIS.

4 out of 5 stars   Great Camera, not slim but realiable
By FernandoYUL (Montreal, QC, Canada) July 26, 2010
Review submitted for Canon PowerShot SX200IS 12MP 12x Zoom Digital Camera w/ 720P HD Video Recording & HDMI (CNPSSX200ISK)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Looks very pro, Nice Body Color, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom
Cons: Too Large / Bulky, No full HD movies but ok
Other Comments: I bought the camera 1 month ago via Beach camera and came with teh free 4GB memory. Initially it looked quite bulky but works perfectly. Let's say, it's not the camera you can easily hide in the entrance of exclusive shows but for the capabilities and zoom it has is more than ok. The colors are vivid and options as you want, the only con is that the video clips are not full HD but the quiality is very decent for short clips and concerts. Absolutely recommended.

4 out of 5 stars   SuperZoom makes nature photography fun

Review submitted for Canon PowerShot SX200IS 12MP 12x Zoom Digital Camera w/ 720P HD Video Recording & HDMI (CNPSSX200ISK)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great Zoom, Good in Low Light
Cons: Poor Flash, Too Large / Bulky
Other Comments: After my 1st hiking trip with this new camera, I am very happy with it! The ability to carry a powerful zoom lens without bringing my bulky old SLR camera made it a pleasure to take on the trail. It definitely needs a tripod with the full zoom, but that's no real surprise. It did great shooting the 4th of July fireworks too. Image stabilization could still be improved, but overall it's a great product. There are almost too many pre-set options, but after playing with many of them, they are worth taking the time to explore as many of them work very well for varied conditions.
