Love the camera not the accessories

meleana, Amazon
1 week ago
  • Summary: Love the camera, but the bundle not too great, the camera bag, is so smal it only fits the camera and no extra batteries or accessories, plus when I opened it it was mildew/ moldy. The SD card won't work, I paid for expedited shipping cause I needed it all for a work outing. So after reading up & trying to reformat the card over and over nothing worked. I had to go out and buy a new sd card to be able to shoot at my work event. Overall, bummer. Good camera, so far.

  • Summary: Very nice package. But I do not like the camera. Rear screen washes out when camera is held on the vertical. Camera is also hard to hold. Nice pictures but viewfinder is not accurate. I would not buy this camera again.

G16 Sensor Issues like the G12?

Fire Mike, B&H Photo
23 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased my G16 in April 2014 and after using it several times, discovered I was having the same issues my G12 had, exposures that turned out completely white or under exposed images even though the flash functioned. I sent the camera back for warranty repair and hope that solves the problem. I hope the G16 doesn't have sensor issue like the G12!

1 Week Wonder

biginabox, Canon
24 April 2014
  • Conclusion: Within a week of opening the box, my Powershot (G16) failed, again. because of its fragile lens construction. My former G10 succumbed to 'lens error' after 3 years, the G16, which is noticeable flimsier, lasted a week of light use, handling with kid gloves. Also, the battery life is much shorter. And the case gets worryingly hot after only an hour's intermittent use. If you want a camera for cocktail parties and christenings, the G16 is the ultimate tool.
  • Pros: Good Low-Light Performance, Nice features/settings, excellent image quality, Bright LCD, Lightweight/Portable, Simple controls/menu, easy to use
  • Cons: Short battery life, Flimsy Construction, excess heat during moderate use, over mechanised

I do not like the Canon G16

james cosgrove, Amazon
26 November 2013
  • Summary: I do not like the Canon G16. I had the G12 which I was very happy with. The newer model made changers in the screen eliminating a screen cover and a unique screen viewing platform that could vary your way of viewing your photo before shooting. No directions for use or description of the camera and its workings was included in the package. A camera case was included in the package for use with a smaller camera. I would like to return it.

Disappointed

KatieAT , johnlewis.com
4 February 2014
  • Summary: Wanted an upgrade from a c. 2007 compact I had so I got the G16. Punchy price but worth it, I thought. Not so. Very disappointed by the sharpness of the photos even though lighting was excellent etc. Zoom is unimpressive versus some of the competition. In short, it's not much of an upgrade.
