The Canon PowerShot G 15 is a far out and groovy camera, I like it!!
4 November 2014
Summary: I take many photos of vehicles I am restoring. To show the process, and to help put them back together. I needed a camera that could take photos far out and very close up and stay in focus. This critter does both very well. It takes very clear photos, and has a great memory. I like it. Far better than my last camera.
Unbelievably good night images, Not so good Auto mode
20 October 2014
Summary: I'm not a professional photographer. So I'll put a review for people like myself: The night images are stunningly good. You can't believe how clear and noise-free they are. BUT if you are getting this camera and planning to just use the Auto mode, I should warn you that the images are not so good in daylight. It cannot find a good balance and thus many of your day time images in Auto mode will be either too bright or too dark. You'll lose a lot of details.
Summary: This is not exactly a point and shoot and not exactly a fully manual wannabe professional camera. Instead it is a really nice middle ground camera that i have used to take come stunning shots. The specs say it all, but I want to add that all those specs add up to a great little camera. Its low light capabilities are especially surprising. They are great. In fact, if you are shooting a "mood shot" where you want everything to remain dark its best to go to a manual mode.
Summary: I was looking for a good quality, yet easily portable camera with a few more features that the average pocket-sized digital. This is it. Great quality pictures...easy menus...easy transfer to desktop computer. And the price was great too.

Summary: I've used this camera for quite some time now and am more than satisfied. It is a good compromise between point-and-shoot cameras that are easy to carry around, and DSLRs that are bulky and heavy. It has most of the controls of the DSLR cameras and the image quality is excellent. Focussing is fast, but not always accurate in close-ups since, even in point-focussing mode, the camera has trouble recognizing small objects against a darker background.
