1280 X 720 Pixels Video Resolution

The PowerShot S200 IS supports a maximum video resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. That's over three times the video resolution of the most common video resolutions of 640 x 480 pixels (which is also supported by this digital camera). A video resolution of 1280 x 720 is classified as HD and TVs supporting this resolution are referred to as "HD Ready". However the resolution is not as detailed as Full HD (1920 x 1080). Across all low megapixel digital cameras that have been on the market for a similar time to this digital camera the best video resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels and the worst is 320 x 240 pixels.

Display

Average Display Diagonal

The PowerShot S200 IS has a fairly average display diagonal (3 inches) compared to most of the other digital cameras of this type and age.

We compared all the other 3" screen digital cameras to this camera and we think the Nikon P330 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Networking

Supports Wi-Fi

The PowerShot S200 IS supports Wi-Fi, which is unusual. Most of the other low megapixel digital cameras that have been around for around the same time as this digital camera do not support Wi-Fi.

We compared all the other digital cameras which support Wi-Fi to this digital camera and we think the Nikon D3000 + AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm, the Panasonic DMC-FX90, and the Fujifilm XQ2 which all of have better reviews are also worth considering.

Lens System

Average Digital Zoom

At 4 times zoom factor, the PowerShot S200 IS has a pretty typical digital zoom compared to most of the other low megapixel digital cameras that have been on the market for more than two years.

We compared this camera to all the other 4x digital zoom cameras and we think the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 (£279.95), and the Nikon P7700 which both of have better reviews are also worth considering.

Average Optical Zoom

At 5 times zoom factor, the PowerShot S200 IS has a relatively average optical zoom compared to most of the other cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as this digital camera.

We compared all the other 5x optical zoom digital cameras to this digital camera and we think because of its better review score, the Canon S110 is also worth considering.

If this camera optical zoom is too small for you then you might want to consider the Lumix DMC-FZ200 (£279.95) (24x and higher rated), or the Lumix DMC-FZ330 (£427) (24x and higher rated) both from Panasonic.
