20 March 2015
  • Summary: With a digital camera that has a suggested price tag, the expectation for having strong image quality in the Canon PowerShot G16 is a given. Cameras with such a high price tag don't last long in the market unless they can create great images, and the G16 excels in this area.

Canon G16

Imaging Resource
13 January 2014
  • Conclusion: The Canon G16 is another excellent premium compact digital camera from the "Big C.", and while it's not leaps and bounds different from the G15, it brings a significant feature to the table: speed.
  • Pros: Improved autofocus speed, Shot-to-shot cycle time is much improved over G15, JPEG continuous shooting also improved over G15 with 12+fps for first 5 frames, then around 9fps for the remaining shots with no buffer limit, Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, Full HD video now at up to 60 frames per second,...
  • Cons: LCD screen not articulated, Fine detail and acuity not quite as good as predecessor, Mild blurring in the corners at wide and tele, High chromatic aberration and barrel distortion at wide angle in uncorrected RAW files, Burst mode still slow when shooting RAW files, Optical viewfinder has limited...

  • 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.
  • Pros: This camera has good image quality.
  • Cons: Larger dimensions make this camera less portable than its competitors.

Digital Camera Review
3 December 2013
  • Summary: I have always loved small enthusiast cameras like the iconic Rollei 35S and the innovative Contax T2. Before the advent of affordable digital SLRs, little enthusiast point and shoot (P&S) digital cameras were the driving force behind the exponential expansion of the digital imaging revolution.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, Fast f1.8-f2.8 5x zoom, Exposure Compensation dial on top deck of camera, Robust build quality
  • Cons: Viewfinder is dim and hard to use, AF hunts for focus in very low light

  • 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.
  • 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

  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot G16 is a rather modest update of last year's G15 camera, principally making things faster and adding wi-fi connectivity, focus peaking and some new shooting modes into the now familiar mix.
