Bright Hub
15 June 2010
  • Summary: Many cameras are either too specialized, too expensive, or even just too impractical for most photographers to use. However, the Canon PowerShot G10 combines the practicality of a point & shoot digital camera with the quality of a DSLR. Check out what the PowerShot G10 has to offer with this review.

What Digital Camera
1 June 2009
  • Summary: At low sensitivities the Canon G10’s image quality is impressive, with great detail capture, accurate metering, and consistency with its Auto White Balance system. Furthermore, it is perhaps the only compact in its class whose design gives the impression that it wants to be used manually, not simply...
  • Pros: Overall image quality, bright and detailed LCD screen, styling, fast operation
  • Cons: Bulky, poor control over fringing

  • 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...

DP Review
25 November 2008
  • Conclusion: Canon has taken a camera which we liked, and added more megapixels, more external controls, a wider angle lens, a higher capacity battery and a better hand grip. This was done without sacrificing operation speed, and in some ways improved the usability.
  • Pros: At base ISO and in high contrast conditions, this is the highest resolving compact we have ever tested, Capable of very good results at lower ISO settings (Below ISO 400), and very usable for standard sized prints (noise and NR effects are visible on screen however), Very little vignetting and go...
  • Cons: Rather slow lens (in terms of aperture) by traditional G series standards, No articulated LCD (another traditional G series feature), Price is very high considering other cameras in its class and low end DSLRs, Some noise visible even at ISO 80, Noise Reduction effects start to creep in and smear...

Camera Labs

  • Summary: Canon’s PowerShot G10 continues the G-series tradition of delivering high-end features and full manual control in a compact form factor. This is a well-built camera which will greatly appeal to enthusiasts or anyone looking for a pocketable backup to a DSLR.
  • Pros: 5x stabilised zoom with 28mm wide angle., Flash hotshoe and RAW recording., Great quality 3in 460k screen., Good controls, build and ergonomics.
  • Cons: Slow continuous shooting – just 1.3fps., No G9 time-lapse movies and still no HD., Diffraction reduces detail above max aperture., No HD output - HDMI or component.

  • Excerpt: camera that sits very nicely somewhere between the ‘point and shoot’ and a DSLR. This unit does have a flash shoe but works perfectly well with the excellent built in flash. In fact the 5x wide zoom and 15MP images make this a very powerful unit.

Good Gear Guide.au
17 December 2008
  • Summary: The G10 is compact but it packs plenty of manual features and is ideal for an enthusiast who doesn't want to lug around a D-SLR. We found it to be very well-suited to low-light photography and macro shots, but it will perform well in any situation.
  • Pros: Relatively low noise at ISO 800, effective image stabilisation, ideal for low-light shooting, excellent macro performance, natural-looking colours, hot-shoe for flash, can accommodate tele-converter
  • Cons: Shutter feels a little spongy, sometimes missed the focus point, zoom is jumpy

  • Conclusion: The Canon Powershot G10 is not cheap, but in my opinion it lives up to its price tag. It offers that bit extra all round when compared to other models. If you are serious about photography and would like a camera with SLR features, but without the bulk then take a very close look at this camera.
  • Pros: Picture quality - build quality - features - LCD screen - lay out of controls
  • Cons: Shutter delay times could be better
