Default Help with Canon S200

Hello all,

I am knew to the community and photography in general. I am looking for a very portable camera that won't break my budget but still produces very nice images. The S200 is the right size and price for me and I would like some opinions on the camera from people who have used the camera or people with just a good general knowledge of cameras and photography in general. Also, how is the picture quality of the camera?

Thanks in advance for helping me out.
We all were newbies at one time or another

Peace...

To follow this up, first of all you have to give time for people to respond to your question...many people don't sign on until later in the evening (some people are only now leaving work). Second, since your question is brand specific suggest you ask it in the specific forum that covers that brand.

Another idea, did you see Steve's review of the S200...he has some sample pictures:

Have you look at the A40? This camera is very similar to the S200 as far as features go, but uses the cheaper and more readily available rechargeable AA NiMh batteries instead of the proprietary Lithium Ion in the S200.

It won't break your budget either since the A40 is not only cheaper, it's also one of the most inexpensive! unless of course you want the smaller size of the S200 afforded by its smaller LiIon battery... and the sound bite :?

Yeah, I am mainly looking for a very small pocketable camera that produces good image quality and is $300 dollars or below. Its tough to find a good camera with that budget and I was thinking of picking up the S200 and is wondering how everyone's experience with that camera was?

My sister has the S200 for the same Elph like "cuteness" reason. The only problem was she's not an active user, and on the occasions that she needed the camera the battery was never charged! so it takes away from the spontaneity... AA powered A40 solves this and the picture quality should be on par between the two. But if you're always prepared then there shouldn't be any issue :P
