Digital Camera Review
30 April 2013
  • Summary: It takes a lot for me to love a point and shoot cameras. In fact, I find very few that fit the needs of a seasoned professional. Sometimes they lack basic features I am looking for or they just can’t capture an image with the quality I am used to.
  • Pros: Great image quality, Professional level mode dial with lots of physical buttons, Fast f1.8-f2.8 lens, * button, Solid build
  • Cons: Below average viewfinder, Non-articulating screen will bother some, Some AF hunting in very low light

  • Summary: If you're looking for pro features in a compact camera, the PowerShot G15 has them in spades. It has an optical viewfinder, can take lens filters and even has a useful hotshoe for connecting an external flash. So we know this is no point-and-shoot but how are the images?
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, Optical viewfinder, Pro controls
  • Cons: Chunky design, Fixed screen

Canon PowerShot G15

Pocket Lint

  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot G15 is an undeniably impressive compact camera. It's not going to suit all tastes on account of its bulky, larger-than-average build, but for those after full control and both exceptional performance and image quality then there are few other places to look that deliver to this...
  • Pros: Wide aperture throughout zoom range is impressive, smaller than predecessor, great image quality straight from camera, raw capture, impressive autofocus in all lighting conditions, excellent stabilisation system
  • Cons: Expensive, bulky, shorter zoom than some competitors, 85 per cent field-of-view in viewfinder is limiting and there's zero focus or settings feedback to the eye, high ISO settings still aren't all that, occasional "black out" issue

  • Conclusion: Bis auf kleine Schwächen kann die Canon PowerShot G15 in unserem Praxistest fast vollständig überzeugen. Wie sie bei der Bildqualität und der Geschwindigkeit abschneidet, klären unsere hier folgenden Laborergebnisse.

  • Cons: Kamera für eine kompakte Digitalkamera schon relativ groß (nicht hosentaschentauglich), Relativ hohes Gewicht der Kamera (346 Gramm), Im Gegensatz zur Vorgängerkamera ist das Display nicht mehr dreh- und schwenkbar, Bildfrequenz im normalen Serienbildmodus nicht sehr hoch (dafür Highspeed-Modus v...
