Picture quality isn't amazing, but very good.
WVU1776
The main advantage is the small form factor, which means you can carry the camera easily in your jeans or shirt pocket rather than buy a special camera pouch or bag.
Andy
I mailed the camera back to Canon for repairs, which takes about 3 weeks and as you can imagine it is not covered under warranty.

Canon's newer, higher end SD models (SD200/SD300) are fantastic little cameras for point-n-shooters like myself.

What's new compared to SD110/S410/S500:

-2.0" LCD as opposed to 1.5" on other canon models

-Low-light focus system dramatically improved over previous canon ultracompacts

-Built in scene modes, making it much easier for those illiterate in manual functions (white balance? huh?) to get better looking pictures.

Pros (aside from new features mentioned above):

-Canon's image sensor is consistently one of the (if not THE) best when it comes to ultracompact digital cameras. Compare pictures taken by a Canon ultracompact to any other brand of ultracompact at the same resolution and the difference is remarkable.

-All metal body feels sturdy.

-Controls are mapped very efficiently (zoom and shutter operatable with one hand). Menus can be navigated easily.

-Numerous shooting options are enough to satisfy amateur photographers as well as snapshooters. Auto-mode is efficient and usually does a good job.

-About 2/3 the thickness of the S-series of Canon cameras, which are already about the size of a pack of cigarettes.

-3.2 Megapixel sensor is exactly enough for snapshooters, which ultimately makes this camera cost far less.

-Automatic lens cover prevents dust, etc., from marring lens.

-Canon switched from Compact Flash memory to SD memory, which reads and writes much faster.

-Fast start-up time (although not as fast as Casio's Exilim line).

-Sleek design makes the camera a fashion statement. You can and WILL get "oooh"s and "ahhh"s from people when you pull this thing out.

I've had this camera for over a year now and couldn't be happier with it. Obviously it's very small, which works out great for those that travel a lot or generally like taking a camera wherever they go.

Picture quality isn't amazing, but very good. And at 3.2MP, there's enough resolution to print out an 8x10 photo...why would you need anything bigger?

I purchased the underwater camera case accesory. It's a bit pricey (around $100), but well worth it for the money if you know you're going to use it a lot. I took it to Florida during vacation and took hundreds of photos that turned out brilliant. I HIGHLY recommend using the "underwater" setting available. I took a few without it just to see the difference. They were very blue-saturated. The "underwater" setting eliminated all of that, leaving a clear image. With the attached strap, it wasn't a hassle to carry around either, even underwater. We did lots of snorkling (sp?) and diving with no problems.

On the con side:

- There's no battery life indicator! The only time you know the state of the battery is when it's very low.

- The lcd scratches easily, but that's to be expected. I haven't had any problems with the case itself scratching.

- The included SD card won't hold that many photos. Just spend the extra money and get more memory. They're fairly cheap these days. I bought the 256mb, and it holds plenty (hundreds).

Overall, great camera for the price, size, and ease of use. I did a lot of research on compact cameras before I bought, and this one has met all my expectations.

Zero complaints about this camera for what I paid. Yes, you can get a better camera in terms of resolution or functions, but you probably won't need more than you get with the SD200. I've had mine for just over a year now. It consistantly takes sharp, well balanced photos, the shutter lag is negligible, the battery life is reasonable and the included charger is slim and charges the battery quickly.

I bought this camera after extensively researching the options in this price range. You will not be disappointed for the price.

This is a great little camera. I've carried it for the last 6 months in my sleeve cargo pocket while in Iraq--without a case, and haven't had any problems w/ the screen. It's handy, lightening fast, and takes crystal clear photos. Everyone who's seen it or taken pictures with it wants one. And the ability to recharge on 110/220 V is great for traveling. The battery will usually last at least a week or more while taking a few snap shots a day. I highly recommend it as an alternative to a big--slow--expensive camera. Get a 512 SD card and you'll be set for anything. 3.2 mega does the trick for most users. For under $200 nothing else compares, buy it! Or if you insist on spending more, buy the newer SD400.

I own a Digital Rebel and absolutely adore the photos I get from it. I've invested in a range of lenses, a decent external flash, remote control, etc. but the camera is so damn bulky I will only take it on my "photo excursions" into the real world.

I've found I increasingly miss great shots and parties where carting a huge Digital SLR just isn't practical. To this end, I purchased an SD 200 prior to going down to Disneyland with my family. I didn't want to go on all the rides worrying about my camera and accompanying backpack.

Pros: The SD200 is a tiny, tiny camera. It has the feel of a "spy" camera, the one I dreamed about when I was 10 years old. The shots in regular daylight are pretty accurate in color, sharp in detail and generally up to par with what you'd expect from a film point-and-shoot camera. In other words, I got exactly what I expected from the camera in its shots. On top of that, there is a fairly decent camcorder function. I'll be getting a larger 1 Gig SD card to take advantage of it, but the feature is so flexible and the video so good, it's worth leaving my Canon Elura at home (hardly a giant camcorder, but not pocket-sized either). The video is rendered as large as 30 fps and 640x480. I wish it was 720x480 but oh well.

Cons: Almost a pro, this camera makes me appreciate just how gorgeous the Digital Rebel's photos are. There's no comparison in color, saturation, sharpness and above all, depth. The SD200 feels and shoots like a toy compared to the Rebel. But for my purposes, that's just what it is. I'll be carrying it with me everywhere now and getting all those shots I'd otherwise miss.

Final con and this one is the largest - the flash on the SD200 is way too powerful.
