Which of these 2 Cannon Cameras would you buy??

I have done quite a bit of research and it all seems to be coming to these 2 cameras. Can you help me decide? If anyone has sample pics it would be great if you are willing to share them. Thanks in advance!

  • Okay, first of all, here is a side by side comparison of the two:
    http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/compare_post.asp?method=sidebyside&cameras=canon_a2000is%2Ccanon_sx110is&show=all

    The SX110 has the most telephoto zoom. It also has manual focus as an option. It has a better aperture range if you like bokeh (where the subject is really sharp, but the rest of the image is in graduated blur). It also has the better minimum and maximum shutter speeds.

    The A200 gets a slightly higher frame rate. If you are interested in shots where most of the image is in sharp focus, this one has the better aperture range.

    It mostly depends on what you want to shoot. If you want to shoot individuals or photos with a main subject, I would say go for the SX110. But if you want to shoot large groups of people or landscapes, then go for the A200. They are really very similar and one would work just as well as the other mostly.

  • I fell in love over the weekend with the first one but my DH won't let me get it because it has alkaline batteries not rechargable..boo hoo. I would get the A200is.
