Excerpt: I love my Canon G10 Digital Camera. It looks beautiful and professional with its old retro black style. I am an architecture major college student and I have to take beautiful and high quality photos for my portfolios. I love this camera because it is so easy to use. Sometimes it takes a little while to get in focus, but it starts up and respondes very quickly. Now is is bigger than the previious G9 model, but worth the extra bulk.
Canon G10 does most of what I need it to- but hard for amatures

Excerpt: I used to have the Canon S80 and loved it, but the zoom lens somehow got jammed and dons't work anymore. I would have baught another S80, but they didn't have one at the store (maybe discontinued). The G10 seemed to fit my needs. It isn't as user friendly as the S80. I am still trying to learn what settings to use for which pictures. Some of my pictures blur, which is frustrating, but that seems to mostly happen in low light. If it is daylight, or I am using the...

Excerpt: I was very excited to get CANNONS G10, all the other photographer pros had one , it was flying off shelvs I liked it was compact had a view finder and many settings and a had megipixel of 14, though that changes with settings and in camera cropping the zoom is low but you can get a convertor it also has a hot shoe for a flash if you want to add another one I like to use a flash as least as possable with digital photography but i do use flash with film, not using flash...
Excerpt: Canon g10; A great alternative to your SLR! I normal take my Canon T1i SLR on trips for taking photos and the one off video. However, there are times when I cant carry the SLR around. I have found that the Canon G10 is a great alternative for taking photos in these type of situations. It has its similarities to the SLR and then its differences.
Excerpt: The Canon G10 is marketed as the best point and shoot camera. I have found this to be very true. It blows all my other dinky cameras out of the water. I get beautiful pictures with very little effort. There is also a bit of control over aperature and shutter speeds, etc. The camera is very small and easy to take with you when you do not want to lug around your huge digital slr on a trip or through crowds when a long lens may get in the way.
Summary: From a physical handling perspective, the camera could use a little more right hand contact surface to avoid unnecessary pressure on rear buttons and dials. The camera "on" button is not easy to activate for a casual operation. A somewhat concerted effort is required to turn it on and off. The camera seems to always slightly over expose daylight shots. Operationally, it is just a little faster than some other digi-cams I've used but not DSLR fast.
Summary: I personally like how I shopped around before making any final purchases, hoping to find the best deal around. The camera itself was all I had hopped for. While it is a step above from a typical point and shoot it does still open and upload pictures as such. The reasoning behind purchasing this camera was to become familiar with different ISO settings, Light Meter, Shutter speed, F-stop, ETC...
