Canon PowerShot G16 Review

About.com
3 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Shutter lag and shot to shot delays are rarely noticeable thanks to the powerful processor included in the Canon PowerShot G16, helping it to justify a high price tag.
  • Pros: New image processor provides great performance levels, Includes optical viewfinder, Lens offers an impressive f/1.8 aperture, Strong macro performance, Extensive list of manual control features
  • Cons: No articulated or touch screen LCD option, Camera's price is a little high, Wi-Fi is tricky to use, Camera body is too large to fit in a pocket easily, Image quality is just below that of most DSLR cameras

Canon G16

  • Excerpt: Take a look at the enthusiast cameras on the market, and you could be forgiven for thinking that enthusiast photographers are a lonely bunch. Connected cameras that let you share your photos are everywhere these days; everywhere, it seems, but in the hands of enthusiasts. Otherwise-fully-featured compact cameras typically shun Wi-Fi and social networking, but with the 12.1-megapixel Canon G16, that all changes.

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: 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.

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
  • Excerpt: There’s much to be said for sticking with something that works, but do it for too long and the item in question starts to look old. Take the Canon PowerShot G-series, here in its latest G16 form, as an example. The product line’s visual evolution has been achingly slow since the advent of the G7 way back in 2007, and the value of some of the changes Canon has made in the interim are up for debate.
  • 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...

Test: Canon PowerShot G16 (Digitalkamera)

CHIP Online
15 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Fazit: Die Canon PowerShot G16 überzeugt im Test in nahezu jeder Hinsicht. Der große Fotosensor liefert eine sehr gute Qualität. Autofokus und Serienaufnahme flitzen förmlich davon und die Ausstattung lässt kaum Wünsche offen. Lediglich der optische Sucher fällt deutlich zu klein aus.
  • Pros: Sehr schnell, Lichtstarkes Objektiv, Video-Funktionen, Akku-Leistung, Bildqualität
  • Cons: Panorama-Automatik fehlt, Sehr kleiner Sucher
