Canon IXUS 200 IS digital camera

 

The Canon IXUS 200 IS is a stylish, compact pocketable snapper that comes in silver, light blue, purple and a posh-looking golden livery. The smooth lines of the camera are punctuated only by the slightly protruding shutter button on the top and the...

Build, styling HD video, image quality at lower ISO, touch screen

The auto/stills/video mode slider switch is fiddly; mode dial is on the small size, high ISO image noise, no optical viewfinder

Apart from some fiddly controls the IXUS 200 IS is very nice to use and the active screen technology is great, particularly when selecting the focus point on the screen or the vertical shutter trigger. Image quality and movie picture quality is...

Canon IXUS 200 IS review

 

Canon's latest IXUS rocks a touchscreen for the first time. But do its photos match its snazzy new features?

Solid build and images make this an ideal touchscreen debut for those who like their camera to take control

Canon IXUS 200 IS review

 

An excellent touchscreen snapper with a great range of features

Build quality ; Takes great images ; Excellent screen ; Quick start up times ; Face detection features

No manual features ; Touchscreen can be gimmicky ; Slow continuous shooting ; High ISO mode best left alone ; Dated software

Canon Ixus 200 IS review

 

Image quality isn't the best, but the touchscreen, wide-angle lens, HD video mode and HDMI output justify the high price.

Canon PowerShot SD980 IS review

 

The Canon PowerShot SD980 IS is a bit of a reworking of the SD960 IS . That model's design and features were sort of a letdown. The SD980 turns things around, though, by using a wider lens with longer zoom range, a bigger and now touch-screen LCD, and...

Small; good lens specs; appropriate mix of touch and button controls; HDMI output; excellent photo color, exposure.

Wide-screen LCD size misleading; touch-screen interface not for everyone; no optical zoom while recording movies.

The Canon PowerShot SD980 IS is a very good touch-screen camera for those on the fence about using a touch-screen camera.

Canon Digital Ixus 200 IS

 

The snazzy touchscreen, wide-angle lens and HD video appeal, but at this price we expected more in terms of performance and functionality.

While some touch-based functions – such as touch focus and scene selection – are great to use, others – like image delete and tagging – are clumsy. Surely, Canon could have made more of the touch technology. The lack of manual control and a...

Review: Canon Digital IXUS 200 IS digital camera

 

The Canon IXUS 200 IS tries to offer the best of both worlds with touchscreen and buttons – but doesn't deliver

well made; good specification; great lens; touchscreen makes some things easier

mainly button operated; touch screen bumps up the price; LCD looks grainy

It's easy to imagine a digital camera with a large touchscreen that offers the ease of use of an Apple iPhone, but that also has a good-quality 5x zoom lens, automatic focusing, image stabilisation, low-light capabilities, electronic flash, and a high...

Canon - Digital IXUS 200 IS

 

Canon's Digital IXUS range of compact cameras has established a deserved reputation for being both stylish and up-to-date with modern technology, and the IXUS 200 IS once again follows this trend with several new features and ...

The IXUS 200 IS is beautiful and chic to look at but sometimes sacrifices practical concerns for that stylishness. The new touch-screen technology, though, performs impressively and you can also record 720p HD movies.

Canon IXUS 200 IS

 

The latest touch screen wonder from Canon

This camera has a got a lot going for it, but doesn't quite deliver as well indoors as it does outdoors. Perfect for the outdoors photographer though.
