The Canon IXUS 200 IS is the latest touchscreen compact camera to come from the industry leader. Canon has never had much trouble getting its range of IXUS compact cameras noticed: it has historically been among the best-looking, best-performing you can get, and the Canon IXUS 200 IS adds another string to a formidable bow. The screen on the back isn't only one of the largest TFTs you'll find on a compact, but the bright 3-inch widescreen monitor is a touchscreen, the first to feature on a Canon compact.
Large, high visibility on-screen icons allow for quick and easy selection of shooting and flash modes, while a vertical orientation shutter release function means users can shoot by simply touching the screen. Touch Actions allow users to match gestures made on-screen to commonly used functions, such as tagging images as favourites or erasing, rotating, or protecting images in their collection. Browsing images has never been easier – simply drag your finger across the screen and the camera will adjust the speed of review with the speed of the gesture on-screen.
