DP Review
20 February 2013
  • Summary: The Coolpix P7700 offers an impressive feature set, a longer zoom range than most of its competitors, a fully articulating LCD, and very good photo quality.

Canon PowerShot G15 Review

Digitaltrends
1 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Although the PowerShot G15 is a good camera, reluctantly we’re getting off the small-chip G-series merry-go-round – especially at its list price of $499. We’ve endorsed them for many years but times have changed.
  • Pros: Bright f/1.8-f/2.8 5x zoom, Quality stills and videos, Excellent image stabilization system
  • Cons: Better alternatives available, Pokes along in RAW, Very noisy at high ISOs

CNET
15 November 2012
  • Summary: The G15 will do nothing to dent the PowerShot G-series' excellent reputation. It does feel a little expensive when stood against its closest competitors though -- including its sibling, the G1 X, which with the benefit of time has seen its price fall.
  • Pros: Redesigned top plate; Colour reproduction; Professional features; Movie performance.
  • Cons: Expensive in its field; Some wind noise on movies; Fixed screen.

What Digital Camera
7 November 2012
  • Summary: Canon has made some welcome changes here over the previous G12. With a fast AF system and speedy Raw write times the camera lends itself well to street photography, and while image quality is good it’s not quite as good as expected.
  • Pros: Slim and well made body, Fast AF and start-up, Excellent video, Very good AWB performance
  • Cons: No parallax correction in viewfinder, Some image processing issues, Chromatic aberration, Price

Canon PowerShot G15 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: With so many advanced compact cameras now available, the Canon PowerShot G15 may not hold the lofty position among enthusiast photographers that its predecessors did. That is not to say it isn't an excellent compact camera, though, as it is certainly equal to, if not better than the competition.
