Review guidelines
1 May 2013

Canon PowerShot G15

thinkdigit.com
11 February 2013
  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot G15 the newest addition to the G series of Canon, is an advanced point and shoot camera that is just full of surprises. It improves on many things when compared to the G12, at least on paper and we wonder if that actually translates into any real world performance. Despite a small sensor, it manages to squeeze out every bit of performance from a tiny, non-BSI sensor.
  • Pros: Fast f/1.8-2.8 lens, Fast and accurate AF system reminiscent of Canon DSLRs, 1 cm minimum focussing distance for macro shots
  • Cons: Bulky design, Small 1/1.7-inch sensor, No bendable flash

  • 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. Unfortunately, it is marred by very slow write times, especially in RAW mode which makes continuous shooting a chore, and really forces you to use the fastest memory cards available for best performance.

Fast lens, fine daylight photos

22 January 2013
  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot G15 continues the G-series tradition of solid advanced compacts, but doesn't rank as best in class by any particular measure.
  • Pros: In addition to a great, fast lens, the Canon PowerShot G15 has a nice, streamlined shooting design and produces very nice photos.
  • Cons: It's humbled by a somewhat limited feature set and ho-hum performance.

Canon PowerShot G15 Review

  • Summary: At an MRP of Rs 34,995, the PowerShot G15 may come across as being highly over-priced to you, but we don’t feel so. You get performance close to that of an entry-level DSLR in a pocketable form. In fact, the optics of the G15 is far better than the bundled 18-55 mm lens you get with entry-level DSLRs. Plus, you get macro shooting capability, which calls for a macro lens in the case of DSLRs.

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. Although this is a solid, nicely-featured point-and-shoot, there are now many and much better Compact System Cameras with larger imaging sensors available that are also much more responsive (3-plus fps).
  • 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

Camera Labs
1 November 2012
  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot G15 is the latest in a long line of G series PowerShots aimed at enthusiast photographers looking for a compact lightweight body that doesn't sacrifice too much in the way of features, controls and handling offered by a DSLR. The PowerShot G15 replaces the G12 which was launched in September 2010, but two years is a long time in the camera world and the G15 faces competition on more fronts than its predecessor.
  • Pros: Bright f21.8-2.8 5x zoom lens., Compact and lightweight - pocketable., 1080p24 video, plus super slomo., Optical viewfinder.
  • Cons: Small viewfinder no proximity sensor., Poor continuous shooting performance., Braketing limited to 3 frames., Lacks articulated screen of predecessor., No Wifi or GPS built-in.
