Questionable durability

Levi, B&H Photo
25 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this camera in June after being a long time Canon user with both film and digital products. After using it for 30 days I fell in love with it. The resolution and clarity were amazing and it's low light capabilities were great. On a recent trip to Europe however, I got caught in a rainstorm in Cologne and stored the G16 in my backpack. After taking it out the camera wouldn't work.
  • Pros: Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light
  • Cons: Durabilty, Short Battery Life

Nice Camera, Lacking Functionality

Eli-Ko, B&H Photo
9 July 2014
  • Excerpt: As a proffesional photographer, I bought the G16 as a compact camera that would allow me to have all the manual control I like. The fact that the lens retracts is a big space saver when fitting it into a pocket or the wifes purse. The images are a bit noisy/grainy but that's to be expected from such a small sensor. The lens is fast though (F1.8 when wide), however, it doesn't close down past F8. The image stabilization is great, especially for video.
  • Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Lacking Functionality

Very Delicate

  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Limited Zoom

Unverständlicherweise kein stitch Assistent

Ulf Fiederling, eTest-Wohnen
25 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Völlig unverständlicherweise und absolut enttäuschend: Die G16 hat KEINEN stitch Assistenten !!!!! Ich habe Canon meine Enttäuschung mitgeteilt, Aussage Canon Deutschland war, daß sie die Entwicklung in Japan nicht beeinflussen können. Ich habe mir die Kamera gekauft und bin über diese Tatsache absolut enttäuscht. Schon bei meiner G15 vermisste ich den 2x2 stitch Assistenten der eine quasi Super Weitwinkel Panorama Aufnahme unterstützte.
