Excerpt: I got this camera a week ago so I have very limited experience taking photos with it. One of the main reasons that I bought it was that it was a point and shoot with a viewfinder. I immediately discovered that the viewfinder is very limited. Here's why: 1.

Summary: This kit has a case that is HUGE; it can fit 2 cameras inside it. Some of the accessories included already come with the camera, so you are paying extra. I would not recommend this. Just purchase the camera and separately purchase a case that fits.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
