Excerpt: I jump from G10 (and I sell it well payed on e-bay) to the G16. The best improvement are on the videos, on the night scenes and the continuos shooting (even too fast). A very good camera nice to use on Manual o full AUTO or A, S, and P position.
Excerpt: The G16 is a tired reworking of older versions of the G series. It has a less impressive feel to it than did my G10 and is built in a more flimsy manner. The photographic results are not a step up from earlier models. It is a disappointing camera even as a backup for a DSLR.
Excerpt: As the headline says, this camera is a great compromise. It's not quite as small as a pocket camera, but it's 'way smaller than my Canon 7d with a lens that would give equivalent reach (say, my Canon 24-105 to compare with the G-16's 28-140).
Excerpt: Be warned, Canon is no longer is including the USB cables with this and other cameras. The transfer cable is made only for Canon Cameras, so you will need to also buy one. Just the battery and wall charger is all you get now.
Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Short Lag Time
Excerpt: I needed a very portable, high quality camera for documenting construction missions work. A photo journalist friend of mine recommended the Canon G16 and I'm glad he did. It takes great photos and has more than enough features while still easily carried on my belt with the nice Pearstone pouch that...
Excerpt: I was looking for a compact camera for those times when I wanted to travel without the weight and bulk of a dSLR. There are lots of options but I settled on the G16 because it provided a good combination of price, size, features and image quality.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I am a home inspector and use this camera every day. This is my 4th G model Canon camera. I always carry two with me one for back up. These are great cameras but they do not bounce well lol. I have dropped off ladders, roofs and attic spaces while doing my job. Canon has always been able to fix etc.
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, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
