I just wish it would click when I told it to without a delay

Excerpt: I am a Professional Photographer and require a certain commitment from my equipment. Yes, this camera is assumed to be for the pro requiring an all around take with type of camera to leave the bigger more expensive ones at home but with as many megapixels as this G10 has, and the price tag, I would have expected it to perform with a high standard Canon is usually known for.
Cons: I Owned G7, G9 and is saw now the G10 Photos they got worse with every generation from G7 on. G7 Photos are hi-detailed, contrasty, great colored, just like a small DSL, the G9 startet to suffer from noise and Noise reduction but the G10 is worst.
Summary: I am a professional photographer who shoots with many different cameras. My SLRs are Canon. I also shoot digital and film with Leicas. I bought the G10 in the hopes that Canon's use of the Digic IV processor would yield low noise images. I was wrong. The noise starts to ruin the photos at levels of ISO 200 and above. That's not acceptable in today's camera market. Unless you plan to shoot outdoors in bright conditions all the time, don't bother with this camera.
Summary: I was expecting the perfect camera based on all the fantastic reviews here on Amazon. As of writing this review, 17 out of 25 have given it 5 stars, 7 have given it 4 or 3, and 1 person has given it 2 stars. My previous digital camera was a Canon Powershot S400 (4 megapixel) camera that I got over 5 years ago. It was an excellent camera. I decided to stick with Canon because I loved the S400 so much (and my previous film SLR camera was a Canon too).
