Canon's PowerShot G16 is the latest in a long line of G-Series enthusiast compacts, and won't disappoint.


Like any good compact camera, it's Smart Auto mode makes taking high quality, quick snaps incredibly easy but the G16 is about control. It has an optical viewfinder to help compose your photo in bright sunlight, a flash hotshoe which supports the Canon Speedlite DSLR flashguns to give you complete lighting control, a dedicated exposure dial for quick adjustments.


To make sure all that control doesn't go to waste, the Canon G16 sports the latest DiG!C 6 processor for fast response and burst shooting up to a blistering 12 frames per second, a 12 Megapixel CMOS type sensor which is larger than most other compacts to deliver more detail and less noise, coupled with a very bright f1.8-2.8 lens allowing the camera do gather plenty of light no matter what conditions you're in.

Image quality could be better.

Fairly easy to use - although I am sure I have not used all the functions available.
There have been times which I am not sure what I have pressed and it goes into a countdown mode.
What was important to me was the image quality - it's not as sharp or able to accommodate the glare well. Picture quality is thus not as good as I would have expected.
It seems to handle night light better.
The inability to rotate the screen and the need to pop up the flash is a disadvantage.

Okay as a compact but I expected a better image quality. Also - why can't Canon standardise on battery sizes? It would give much greater capacity and flexibility to users.

Pros: Easy to use, Compact, Build quality, Battery life, Screen size
Cons: Screen size

I was waiting for the Nikon Coolpix P340 but went into the store and asked about other options. My criteria included wi-fi, RAW and manual mode. For a little extra cost and a heavier camera I have the Canon PowerShot G16 which I am enjoying. I'd happily recommend this camera to anyone wanting a compact with RAW. the wi-fi works well and I like that with my iPhone I can add geotag data to the metadata of the RAW image. I just have to remember to have the location tracking on when I'm capturing images.

Pros: Easy to use, Compact, Build quality, Battery life
Cons: Bulky

Find the wifi a bit confusing to set up! Would be nice if it came with a camera case available at time of purchase.
