Not quite what I expected

Melbourne, B&H Photo
12 April 2015
  • Excerpt: As a happy user of the Canon Powershot G10, I was really looking forward to the G16 based upon faster lens, faster autofocus and better low light. I am not happy that the heavy duty build quality of the G10 has been lost to a lighter plastic build on the G16.
  • Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Build Quality Than G10, Less Intuitive Than G10, Not As Easy To Use

Nice camera, many useless extras

Olafur Torfi Yngvason, Amazon
3 March 2015
  • Summary: The camera is wonderful, but the reason I gave it 3 star is because i think there are better kits out there. The lenses are silly, they go on this cylindrical thing that makes you have to almost use full optical zoom not to see the cylinder itself on the picture.

  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Poor Flash, Poor viewfinder

Nice Camera, Lacking Functionality

Eli-Ko, B&H Photo
9 July 2014

  • Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Small / Compact
