Canon PowerShot S200

Sleek aesthetics, ultra-compact dimensions, and immaculate elegance are all hallmarks of Canon’s popular IXY (rhymes with Dixie) DIGITAL series, and the IXY DIGITAL 200a carries on the tradition.

The IXY DIGITAL 200a incorporates cutting-edge optical technology to produce images of exceptional quality and clarity. The 200a is equipped with a 1/2.7-inch CCD sensor with 2 million effective pixels of resolution, an RGB primary color filter, and Canon’s proprietary high-speed Imaging Engine digital signal-processing IC, which allows it to produce images with a high signal-to-noise ratio, high definition, and accurate color reproduction.

The IXY DIGITAL 200a achieves an even thinner body than previous IXY DIGITAL versions that were produced.

With the Intelligent Orientation Sensor, Canon’s IXY DIGITAL 200a is the first camera in the IXY DIGITAL or PowerShot compact digital lineup to automatically detect the camera’s orientation while also ensuring optimal Auto-Focus, Auto-Exposure, and Auto-White Balance performance. Canon’s Intelligent Orientation Sensor is found in all IXY DIGITAL and PowerShot compact digital lineups.

A number of high-end features are also included, including five popular Photo Effects, which allow for greater creativity at the touch of a button; Intelligent AE, which ensures optimal exposure performance; five white balance presets; noise reduction; a wide shutter speed range of 15 seconds to 1/1500 second; and a histogram display, which allows the user to check the overall exposure for each photo on the LCD screen.

Aside from that, the IXY DIGITAL 200a makes use of innovative ultra-high density mounting technology, which results in a slimmer camera body. Additionally, the “Camera Direct Print” function, when used in conjunction with compact digital picture printers, will give the user a great deal of pleasure.
