Excerpt: I own several Nikon DSLR camera, but I found that I needed a small camera for when my wife and I go or a walk or hike. After several weeks of research, I settled for the Canon Powershot G16, and am happy with that choice. It fills the gap I was looking for. It packs a lot of camera in a small body.
Excerpt: I use this camera for quick snapshots, online images and many of my travel photos that are to be used for slide shows. I've made some very nice, large prints from it as well.
I've had G-series cameras since the early models. Drowned one on a rafting trip. They, like most digitals, don't like water.
Excerpt: I have a full size DSLR but is too heavy for my wife to use on road trips. We shoot from our moving car while cruising with our car club at highway speeds and winding roads. The pictures from this G16 camera come out sharp and in focus without camera shake 90% of the time.
Excerpt: A friend, who is a professional photographer, recommended the G16. It is the only camera he uses when he is not on a photo job. I followed his advice, safed a lot of money, and i am very happy. This camera has great potential and is relatively easy to use.
Excerpt: Many features found on more expensive cameras. The hot shoe and view finder will be useful. Fits in my jacket pocket but tight in a pants pocket. Video is easy to use. Just what I wanted to travel.
Excerpt: I am a freelance outdoors/travel writer and needed a camera that would give me better-than-iphone quality pics without having to tote around pro-sized gear. I saw a friend's shots from his G16, asked what he paid for it and knew I had to get one.
Excerpt: We went on a trip to India and Sri Lanka recently, and I took the advice of many reviewers - I left my DSLR at home, and just took the G16.
I'm not sorry that I did - the results were really quite excellent, and it saved me carrying some heavy equipment all over southern Asia.
Excerpt: I used this camera for my trip overseas and after reviewing the pictures taken they came out to be sharp and nice. Cant beat the price either with the rebate and freebies - i cant ask for more - this is a Real STEAL!
