The Canon PowerShot SX200 IS combines a compact design with a 12x optical zoom lens. It features a high resolution 3.0 inch LCD and HD shooting at 1280 x 720 pixels.
- Slimmest PowerShot SX yet
- Speedy, reliable performance
- Smooth interface and great auto modes
- Excellent zoom range
- 720p video capture
- Several mildly irritating optical concerns
- Noisy images above ISO 400
- Manual controls could be easier to use
- Pop-up flash is flimsy
But while the SX200 certainly checks all of the boxes, only a full appraisal of some very strong competition from the likes of not only Panasonic, but also Olympus, Nikon, Kodak, and Samsung, will tell if the SX200 is able to eke out a leading position in this competitive field.
