Excerpt: High end point and shoot turns on quickly, has a great manual mode that is easy to adjust with two separate dials without having to go into menus. The only thing that could be improved is a separate focus ring since manual focus is an option. The fast lens is amazing for low light pictures. Just keep in mind the shallow depth of field can get tricky if you don't move the point of focus. RAW images are great to work with in Photoshop and eliminate the need for HDR.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time
Excerpt: This is a great camera. I wanted something to use when I didn't want to lug my slr around. It's small yet sturdy and takes a beautiful picture. I love the low apperature on the lens and being able to shoot manual is awesome! I only wish there was a feature that would allow me to choose where I want my focus to be. Other than that, it's GREAT!
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
Excerpt: Digital Compacts that I use: Canon G15 PowerShot (two) Canon G11 PowerShot Canon G5 PowerShot (two) Olympus E-p1 Olympus E-p3 G15 Pros (* indicates the ones that are very important to me): *Maximum Aperture – I shoot a lot in dim lighting without flash and therefore need a fast maximum aperture. The fast maximum aperture in my G15 (f/1.8) and my G5 (f/2) give me what I need. The slower maximum aperture in my G11 (f/2.8) was very disappointing.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Quiet Operation, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact, Viewfinder
Cons: No Articulated LCD, No Constant Aperture Zoom, No interchangeable lens, No Microphone Jack, Poor Image Numbering, Poor manual focus
Excerpt: I use a canon 7D as my SLR and this is a great alternative when I don;t want to carry all the kit. A good solid camera, clear shots with little noise in low light. I use it for underwater photography with the video being close to the 7D (in auto mode). The underwater stills aren't quite as good, but just need some colour adjustments and white balance in to sort them out (due to lack of manual mode on G15) - the underwater sense mode isn't great - better using other...
Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: The great: -Much, much better than my old point-and-shoot digital. -The range of controls (worth the extra learning) -Incredible low light shots, without flash, as many have indicated. -Sharp with JPEG. (Some reviews say RAW has been shown to be even sharper.) Some reviews show shots not as sharp as from some other prosumer digital cameras for some critical needs. I was surprised at the detail from a severely cropped handheld shot that was considerably enlarged.
Pros: battery life, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Good zoom, Great in low light, Great Range Of Controls, Has viewfinder, Just the right size, Large Clear LCD
Cons: Too Complex For Some, Viewfinder Slight Off-ctr
Excerpt: Great camera great price too. Just what I've been waiting for. It has a great lens and lots of features I would recommend this camera. The only downside would be the image sensor size, shame it's not bigger, then with that f2.8 lens you could have a smaller depth of field.
Excerpt: I had G12 which was excellen, good & sharp photos,its sensor became damaged, decided to replace with G15 which has better lense, the only drawback is that it lacks swivel LCD. my G12 had swivel LCD, which made it more versitile, I love G-seris and highly recommend.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
