Summary: The G10 while an older model from Canon is a great on the go camera with amazing picture quality. Slide on the neck strap and your ready for some on the go fun,save those memories. The G10 can be found used at bargain prices on Ebay. If you can't afford the newer G15 go with the Canon G10 and you will be glad you did. A professional quality camera the G10 will get the job done right the first time.
Summary: This is by far the best point and shoot camera i've ever owned. i love it for what i need. it's no DSLR, but its great for basic and not so basic stuff. it has a great shape to it, sort of hefty, but no big deal. great fat battery too.
Excerpt: So my husband is a professional photographer and I wanted a camera of my own to use around the house and at parks and so forth when he isn't with us. I have no desire to lug around one of his big digital SLRs (and I honestly am not comfortable using it). So when we were shopping around for a point and shoot I had two criteria, 1. That it took decent pictures. 2. that it could shoot video. My husband had a lot of other criteria since he knows cameras so well.
Excerpt: Canon's G series have always been a hit, generation after another they find ways to improve them and the G10 continues that upward trend. It offers a fix wide angle lens and a usable optical zoom. It's higher pixels allows for stronger images when you have to use the digital zoom. The G10 also gives you very usable and powerful manual mode options. The build quality is unsurpassed, as it's built like a tank.
The best point and shoot camera I have ever owned... again!

Excerpt: This camera is the best point and shoot camera I have ever owned. It is easy to use. It has a great lens. it is almost 15 megapixels. It takes SD cards, just like every other piece of electronics i own. It is solidly built. This camera has taken a lot of abuse. It has a great zoom. It can be fully automatic, fully manual, and everything in between. It has a hot shoe for an off the camera flash if you want it. I bought this camera to replace the Canon PowerShot...
The Canon G10 is a professional level camera in a compact form.

Excerpt: I was a very early buyer of the Canon G-10, and have been very impressed with it from the first day I used it. I own two Canon digital SLRs which I do still use when the subjects are difficult or demanding in some way, but for my day to day exploring and hiking, I love just carrying this camera instead of lugging a ton of gear all of the time. I do still keep the SLRs and their array of lenses at hand when travelling by car with unlimited space available for packing...
Excerpt: I love my Canon Powershot! The picture quality is amazing, even when compared to more expensive point and shoot cameras that are available. Zoom quality is great, but I never feel as though I need to zoom because once I get onto my photo website, I can crop the pictures and the quality is upheld. The camera has a way to connect a tripod to it, as well as a timer. This camera can be used in many different ways, as it also has video capabilities.
Summary: I owned a G10 previously, but it was stolen. I did not want to pay full price especially since I am hard on cameras. I use a camera like a sketcbook, and it's high quality point and shoot capabilities suit me. My only issue with the camera is the lens. Because it is a slightly wide angled, there is a noticeable distortion in many photos.
Summary: I purchased the Canon Powershot G10 to replace one I had flooded while scuba diving. I specifically wanted the same camera I had gotten so used to using. It has so many features, many I was still learning. Photographs were great quality. I could set the camera on auto when I wanting to just point and shoot and still have great pictures. Or, I could go to manual and set the exposure as I wanted it.
