Summary: I have fairly extensive experience with digital cameras, usually changing cameras once or twice a year. This CANON POWERSHOT G10 is near the top of the "point-and-shoot" list and it makes a great back-up camera for pros or pro-sumers.
Summary: I have been in photography for the past 35 years. In this time period I shot both professionally and also as a hobby for my own enjoyment. I was looking for a quality compact camera that would subsidies my medium format and DSLR equipment. When the G9 canon came out I purchased one for this purpose.
Summary: I want to love this camera so much, it hurts to return it!! For the first time, there is a PS that all controls laid out just right, with all the dials and buttons just like I wanted. But big disappointment: 1. Images are too soft.
Summary: Man, I really had high hopes for the G10 having owned the earlier G3 Model which was awesome and is about to become a collector's item. I thought, "How much better can it be to own a model that's 7 more generations down the road?!
Summary: I love the G10, not technical I know but this has become a very trusted and very capable tool, great feel and everlasting (almost) battery. I am ashamed to say I tried the G11 and found the flip flop twist and turn smaller screen a fragile mess. I sold the G11 and am reunited with the G10.
Summary: Well I cannot agree with the previous review. This camera is no where near as good as a DSLR even on the lowest ISO setting. Dynamic range is the main drawback. expose for the shadows and you are going to get way blown out highlights in all but the flattest light.
Summary: I've had a G7 for over 2 years which was worked hard and received minor damage but which had always produced very good results and served effectively as a No.2 camera to my Pentax DSLR. It was time to upgrade and because I liked much about the G7 I thought the G10 a logical step.
