The Canon PowerShot SD200 Digital ELPH swept onto the scene just in time for the 2004 Holiday season along with its “big brother,” the SD300. Together they replace the SD110 in Canon’s popular, diminutive digital camera line. In both the film and digital worlds, the tiny, high-style Canon ELPH models have been wildly popular. Long a popular brand for APS film cameras, the Canon Digital ELPHs brought the compact size and styling to the digital world, beginning with the original PowerShot S100. The new Canon SD200 continues the use of the SD memory card format we first saw in the original SD100, and expands the lines excellent printer compatibility with full support of the PictBridge standard. The Canon SD200 and SD300 also update the line with new styling, slimmer profile, a range of resolutions, a big 2 inch LCD, and use of the (very fast) DiGIC II processor. Overall, one of the more appealing subcompact digicams we’ve seen to date: Read on for all the details!


Camera Overview

Slightly smaller than many preceding Canon Digital ELPH models, the Canon PowerShot SD200 features the great looks and sharp design that are the ELPH signature. Very compact and quick on the draw (thanks to a smoothly operating retractable lens design), the PowerShot SD200 is a convenient point-and-shoot digital camera with a handful of extra exposure features for added flexibility, and a larger LCD display than previous models of this size in Canon’s lineup. With the lens retracted, the Canon SD200’s front panel is flat and pocket friendly, and its mostly aluminum body (the SD300 is stainless steel) is accented with pearlescent plastic accents that wrap around the right side from top to bottom. Equipped with a 3.2-megapixel CCD, the SD200 captures high quality images, suitable for printing snapshots as large as 8×10 inches. Smaller image sizes are also available for email transmission or Web applications, and a movie mode captures short video clips with sound.
