Share your creativity with a PowerShot you can take anywhere
HS System and a bright f/2 lens deliver superb performance in any light. The PowerShot S200 puts artistic control into the pockets of photographers who like to shoot creatively, and share their images while on the move.
For great-quality images in any light, the PowerShot S200 uses Canon’s HS System: a unique combination of a high-sensitivity sensor and powerful DIGIC 5 processor. A bright f/2 lens and maximum ISO 6400 sensitivity helps you keep shooting even when light levels drop, capturing the ambience of the occasion without using flash or a tripod.
A 24mm 5x zoom offers tremendous creative flexibility. Capture those big skies along with every detail in the foreground when shooting landscapes, or zoom in to pick out individual subjects and get closer to the action. ZoomPlus takes you even closer, increasing your zoom power while maintaining sharpness and clarity.
Take control of your images with a range of manual and semi-automatic features. Customise the PowerShot S200’s Lens Control Ring for easy adjustment of image parameters like aperture, shutter speed and focusing.
Combat camera shake and capture sharp, detailed images and movies. Canon’s optical Image Stabilizer with Intelligent IS compensates for unwanted camera movement, and automatically picks one of seven modes according to shooting conditions.
Connect and share your images with your smartphone or tablet via Wi-Fi or send them directly to popular social-networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter via CANON iMAGE GATEWAY. Wirelessly connect and print your photos with compatible PIXMA or SELPHY photo printers. Image Sync enables convenient PC and online back up to cloud storage sites such as Flickr™*
A large, durable, high quality LCD screen with excellent visibility offers effortless menu navigation, lets you frame and view shots with ease and makes sharing them a pleasure.
Simply switch the PowerShot S200 into Smart Auto and let the camera intelligently choose the right camera settings for you, adapting from 36 scenes (21 when shooting movies) for optimum results.
Record high quality HD movies at 720p resolution, with optical zoom and stereo sound. A dedicated Movie Button allows quick and intuitive access to video capture. An HDMI-CEC connection enables footage to be watched and controlled on your home TV.
Add your own look and feel to an image with the PowerShot S200’s Creative Filters. Choose from photographic effects, like Fisheye, Miniature and Toy Camera, to more traditional Monochrome and Colour Accent filters.
