Multimedia, AV I had no plans to write a mini-review for the Canon SX200 IS which I bought recently, but I can't contain my excitement about its video mode, so I had to share. The story behind it is that after testing various digicams in its class, I concluded that this is the best HD video P&S digicam in the sub-$500 price range (not counting digi-recorders like the Sanyo Xacti). Read on for more info, and for some directly-out-of-the-camera samples to download and scrutinize yourselves.

It does digital zoom, up to 4x.

We hope to enable optical zooming (audio noise) and other functions as well with the CHDK software, but this is still under heavy development for sx200.

I bought this camera after reading Eugenia's stories about it and it is indeed a very impressive unit.
