Canon PowerShot SX200 IS review


The daddy of Canon's compact camera line-up

12x Zoom ; Good image stabiliser ; Decent selection of shooting modes ; Excellent images

No optical viewfinder

The SX200 IS is a big departure from the bulbous plastic designs of previous SX-series cameras.

Canon - PowerShot SX200 IS


The PowerShot SX200 IS is striking on the eye, with a shiny aluminium casing in fetching shades of black, blue or red. This is a much more substantial digital compact than many of its rivals, weighing ...
