Summary: Worthy successor to the G9, the new Canon PowerShot G10 is a compact digital camera has, however, manual controls and a screen with very high resolution. To highlight the sensor, among the highest in circulation, the discrete zoom, image stabilizer, face detection, the RAW format for images and various scene modes.

Cons: Focus problematic in some situations; Price; Display not articulated; Chromatic aberration in full wide, slow opening goal; noise visible at ISO 80, ISO 800, 1600 and 3200 iso practically useless
Conclusion: If you’re a pro who needs a second camera or just a gadget-head who demands the best, this camera is for you. No, not you with hefty credit card bill, but you with slightly more dosh than you know what to do with.
Pros: Canon’s semi-pro G-series gets its first wide angle (28mm) camera with optical image stabilisation, and it’s a beauty. Hewn from black metal, the G10 is both war-zone-tough and catwalk-friendly, thanks to a crystal-clear lens, face tracking and (naturally) RAW format shooting. The 5x zoom is optically stabilised for blur-free shots. A new i-contrast feature grabs details from shadows, while the 14.7-megapixel sensor rolls out a red carpet of realistic colours and pixe...
Cons: Now that SLRs have Live View, movie modes and lower price tags, there’s less of a reason to stick with compacts, even ones as well built as the G10. Burst shooting is also sluggish at about 0.7 frames per second, so it’s not ideal for sports photography.

Conclusion: Canon PowerShot G10 digital camera The Canon PowerShot G10 is a sibling of a long range of quality cameras. Or at least that is the overall conclusion from the test. In fact, the PowerShot G camera's concept is enough for awhile although new functions are added to every new generation so as to justify the introduction of a new generation.

Conclusion: We really liked the Canon PowerShot G10, but it’s only for a sliver of shutterbugs out there—especially with a price tag of $450 in the real world. Yes, it takes very fine images at low ISOs with good light. The wide-angle option is also a real plus, and the superb 3-inch LCD screen is great for framing your shots and reviewing them. The camera has a ton of adjustments to keep you inner gadget geek enthralled for a long time as well.
Pros: Versatile wide-angle zoom; terrific shots in good lighting; great feel and ergonomics
Cons: Expensive; relatively slow; video should be higher quality; noise above ISO 400
Excerpt: The PowerShot
G10 ($499) is the flagship camera in Canon's
point-and-shoot lineup. Its highlights include a
14.7 Megapixel CCD, 5X wide-angle zoom lens, image
stabilization, a high resolution t3-inch LCD, and
more manual controls than you can shake a stick at.
The G10 the follow-up to the PowerShot G9, a camera
that I was not overly enthusiastic about.
Pros: Very good photo quality (in good light), Nice 5X zoom lens with 28 - 140 mm range, Optical image stabilization, Solid, well built body, with easy-to-access ISO and exposure compensation dials, Generally snappy performance, High resolution 3-inch LCD display; good low light visibility, Full manual controls, with plenty of scene modes too, RAW image format support; good RAW editor included, Customizable menus and buttons, Very expandable: supports an external flash, rem...
Cons: Lots of noise reduction in low light; images get noisy quickly in good light after ISO 400, No white balance bracketing or fine-tuning, Continuous shooting mode won't win any awards for speed, Lack of HD movie mode a disappointment, Design annoyances: top dials easy to bump accidentally; small shutter release/zoom controller; thumb sits right on the focus point button, Can't swap memory cards while using a tripod, Still missing the fast lens and rotating LCD of G-seri...
Excerpt: My Canon PowerShot G10 review unit hadn't been out of the box ten minutes when the crowd of interested onlookers from the NotebookReview.com offices upstairs started filing by to poke, prod, and play with Canon's latest advanced compact. Of course, what everyone wants to know, and what more than one person who stopped by my office to examine the G10 discussed at length, was how the G10 compares to its venerable predecessor, the Canon G9.
Pros: Richly detailed high-resolution images, Superb wide-angle lens, Excellent LCD is large and crisp, Lots of dedicated controls should appeal to serious shooters, Snappy performance in most areas
Cons: Images are objectively noisy, Continuous shooting speed a drag, Weak video options, Large, heavy, intimidating, and expensive for casual shutterbugs
