Canon PowerShot SD1300IS Review

Canon PowerShot SX200IS

The Good
4x optical zoom, optical image stabilizer, 28mm wide angle lens, 12.1
megapixel resolution, Low Light mode.
The Bad
No viewfinder, limited battery life, more expensive than other similar
Yay or Nay
This camera is a good choice for those who want a camera that
can provide users with a simple yet efficient way of taking pictures.
Anyone expecting a professional-grade camera will want to look
elsewhere, but those with simpler ambitions will want to take a second


With “smart” features like image stabilization and multiple shooting
modes for those who don’t know what they want, it’s a good choice for
most people who need another digital camera. It has all the technical
capability you could ever ask for, and can take high-quality pictures
in low light, something which many other models fail to accomplish.

Taking snapshots with this camera is very simple, even for those who
don’t have a lot of experience working modern digital cameras. The
auto settings this camera comes with is part of what makes it a good
choice. Image stabilization is another feature which helps to prevent
any blurring when taking pictures. It also has a 4x optical zoom, so
even when the target you are trying to shoot is far away, you can still
get off some good shots.

Canon PowerShot SX200IS LCD


Those looking to purchase a camera which also has video recording
capabilities will want to check out this model. Once you are done
recording, you will be able to hook up the AV cable, which comes with
the camera, to your television and play it back. The microphone for
the video record feature is conveniently located in the front, so it gets
great quality sound as well as video.

Photo Quality and Extras

This model has a resolution of 12.1 megapixels and also has a
PureColor LCD screen for easy viewing when taking pictures. It has
18 different settings to choose from, along with image stabilization,
which automatically adjusts the camera to take still shots. It has a
Low Light mode, so even in darker settings, you will be able to get
the quality you demand. Each picture comes out clear and bright,
making this camera ideal for those who want nothing less than
perfection with each snapshot. The built-in image stabilizer takes care
of problems which most people experience on other cameras such
as blurriness, so pictures taken with this model are never obscured.


One of the few downsides to this camera is that it has a limited battery
life, so an extra pack is required for long days of shooting. There is
also no viewfinder for those who enjoy the ability to look through one
when taking pictures.


This model has everything a modern camera should have, including
all the settings which make taking pictures easier for those who aren’t
experienced with these devices. It is a user-friendly model, with all
the technical aspects that make it great for taking quality pictures
every time. Anyone looking to spend their money on a good camera
that comes with all the necessary features to record clear and crisp
moments in time will want to think about getting this one. It’s only
about $160 and worth every dollar you spend.
