Canon PowerShot G16 Review: Slight Upgrades, Still a Great Camera

Digital Camera Review
3 December 2013
  • Summary: Conclusion For me, the most important considerations when assessing a camera's performance are image quality and the camera's ability to meet the user's needs. The G16 can be viewed as the culmination of a continuously refined single idea--to create a compact, self-contained, precision-engineered camera that functions like a P&S, but also provides lots of user control.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, Fast f1.8-f2.8 5x zoom, E, Robust build quality
  • Cons: Viewfinder is dim and hard to use, AF hunts for focus in very low light

  • Summary: The PowerShot G16 further reinforces the position of Canon’s G-series as the standard by which all other advanced compacts must be judged. It is fast, light, easy to use, exceptionally well made, packed with features and offers excellent image quality and performance.
  • Pros: Performance; Image Quality; Build Quality; Features
  • Cons: Fixed LCD screen; Incremental improvements on predecessor

  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot G16 is a good, enthusiast-oriented point and shoot camera. A 1/1.7-inch sensor and well-made f/1.8 lens make for great image quality. It is larger and more bulky than many of its competitors, but it makes good use of the extra space with well thought out manual controls. It places an emphasis on a professional feel and quick precise control, and while its portability suffers, it serves this intended purpose well.
  • Pros: This camera has good image quality.
  • Cons: Larger dimensions make this camera less portable than its competitors.

Canon PowerShot G16

PhotoReview
4 April 2014
  • Summary: Like previous G-series cameras, the G16 is a compact, feature-rich digicam with integrated raw file support. It provides one of the most comprehensive selections of external controls available, with four dials and a dozen buttons offering access to the most frequently-used settings. Without interchangeable lenses, the G-series cameras can't replace a DSLR or CSC.

  • Summary: Evolving from the G15 with even faster autofocus, a smarter brain and Wi-Fi, the Canon G16 is one small step, but when you're already out in front that can be all you need.
  • Pros: Very fast, Excellent indoors, Impressive video, Direct manual controls, RAW shooting
  • Cons: Large for a compact, Small viewfinder

Canon PowerShot G16 review

Pocket Lint
2 December 2013
  • Conclusion: The G16 may be starting to look a little dated, particularly when you compare it to something like Sony’s sleek RX100, but that doesn't stop the Canon remaining a top-notch snapper all round. When something's right, it's just right - and the G16 largely represents that. It won't suit all photographers on account of its bulky size, but for those that it will, it'll be spot on. The camera delivers image quality that's consistently good, certainly among the best in class.
  • Pros: Image quality is great, raw shooting option, physical control layout perfect, bright maximum aperture - even at full zoom, 1080p movies at 60fps
  • Cons: Body could do with a refresh, fixed screen position, very small viewfinder, Wi-Fi features don’t extend to wireless shooting

PowerShot G16

Das Digitalkamera-Magazin
16 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Bis auf die Einschränkungen beim Sucher lassen sich kaum Kritikpunkte bei der Canon PowerShot G16 in der Praxis finden. Kann dieses sehr gute Ergebnis aber auch im Labor erreicht werden? Unser Laborergebnisse: Beim Bildsensor setzt Canon auf ein 1/1,7 Zoll großes CMOS-Modell mit einer Auflösung von 12 Megapixel (4.000 x 3.000 Pixel). Damit besitzt die PowerShot G16 (Datenblatt) die klassische Sensorgröße der meisten Premium-Kompaktkameras.
  • Pros: Gute bis sehr gute Bildqualität für eine Kompaktkamera (etwa klassenüblich im Bereich 1/1,7"), 5-fach-Zoom mit praxistauglicher Brennweite 28-140mm, Die Lichtstärke liegt bei F1,8-2,8, Die Digitalkamera liegt sehr gut und bequem in der Hand, Sehr hohe Bildrate im Serienbildmodus (im Labor: bis zu 12,1 Bilder/Sek. im JPEG-Format), Schnappschuss-tauglich: schneller Autofokus, aber "nur" akzeptable Auslöseverzögerung, Effektiver optischer Bildstabilisator ("Intelligent I...
  • Cons: Für eine Kompaktkamera schon relativ groß (nicht hosentaschentauglich), Relativ hohes Gewicht der Kamera (354 Gramm), Zu kleines optisches Sucherbild ohne Aufnahmeinfos, das Objektiv ragt im Weitwinkel ins Bildfeld, Stativgewinde nicht in der optischen Achse, Wechselplatte verdeckt Akku- und Speicherkartenfach, Kameradisplay nicht dreh- und/oder schwenkbar gelagert, Die Kamera lässt sich über WLAN nicht steuern, es können nur Aufnahmen angesehen werden, Es ist kein Mi...
