DP Review
29 October 2003
  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Canon PowerShot G2: (4 megapixel prosumer) Canon took the already successful G1, listened to the comments of reviewers and owners alike, added a four megapixel sensor, made the camera design a little more 'marketable' and came up with the G2. And the whole point is the G2 is a camera that just works, it does exactly what its supposed to and it does it well, and consistently.
  • Pros: Excellent resolution (as good as the best at the time of writing this review), Good metering (improved thanks to the new 'evaluative metering' mode), Good natural light white balance, strong, accurate and balanced colours, Good control over cameras internal processing algorithms (saturation, tone, sharpness), Sharp, fast lens with little distortion and reduced chromatic aberrations, Low noise at ISO 50, not as clean at ISO 100, Solid build quality, though hand grip wo...
  • Cons: Slow startup times (lens extension), Sharpening / diagonal line artifacts, Average macro performance, Zoom controller does not have enough increments / multiple zoom speed, RAW acquire module / RAW convert doesn't have enough functionality, Occasionally slow AF at telephoto, Barrel distortion at wide angle, Manual mode limits in relation to combinations of aperture and shutter speed, Flimsy rubber door covering connections is still there, Poorly positioned tripod mount

Canon PowerShot G2

PC Magazine
17 September 2003
  • Excerpt: The 3-megapixel Canon PowerShot G1 was the first digital camera to offer a fully articulated LCD viewfinder that let photographers shoot easily from any position—waist-level, overhead, or lying on the ground. The new 4-megapixel Canon PowerShot G2 builds on this design by boosting resolution and improving focus options, metering, and image color. The gray-and-silver magnesium alloy G2 has the look, feel, and weight of a traditional film camera.

  • Excerpt: Just when the 3 Megapixel wars were starting to settle down, the camera manufacturers moved into the 4 million pixel battlefield. Olympus, Sony, Casio, and Toshiba are already on board, and now there's Canon too, with their PowerShot G2 ($999).
  • Pros: Excellent photo quality, Great bundle - 32MB card, remote control included, Many manual controls, Useful swiveling LCD display, Support for CompactFlash Type II cards, RAW mode - uncompressed images, much smaller than Tiffs, Support for external lenses, filters, and flashes, Lots of info about your photos in playback mode
  • Cons: Proprietary battery, No optical zoom in movie mode, A bit pricey

Canon PowerShot G2 -digitaalikamera

4 August 2012
  • Conclusion: Kokonaisuudessaan Canon PowerShot G2 on todella loistava digitaalikamera ammattikäyttöön ja harrastuskäyttöön. PowerShot on selvää laatua ja ehdottomasti tätä kirjoitettaessani markkinoiden kärkikameroita. Ei voi muuta sanoa kuin "Rautasaitti suosittelee!". Kiitos Riihimäen Heliokselle, josta kamera on hankittu. Tilaustoimitus oli todella nopeaa suuresta kysynnästä huolimatta.

Проба четырехмегапиксельной цифровой фотокамеры Canon PowerShot G2

5 August 2002
  • Conclusion: Резюме: G2 довольно крупная и потому удобная при съемке, однако органы управления требуют привыкания и производят не очень надежное впечатление. Качество оптики и электроники высокое и во многих случаях доступный динамический диапазон оказывается шире диапазона яркостей снимаемого сюжета, что присуще не многим компактным камерам.

  • Summary: Het uitstekende zoomobjectief van de Canon PowerShot G2 zorgt ervoor dat de waargenomen resolutie ruwweg dezelfde is als deze van de Nikon CoolPix 5000 ondanks de lagere reële resolutie. De foto’s zijn scherp, gedetailleerd en contrastrijk. De kleurweergave is neutraal tot warm.

  • Conclusion: Le successeur du PowerShot G1 gagne en résolution avec un capteur à 4 millions de pixels. Mais le prix lui, reste toujours aussi élévé.

  • Excerpt: Beim zweiten Versuch klappt immer alles besser: War die Canon PowerShot G1 noch in einigen Punkten (wie der Autofokus und die Belichtungsmessung) noch stark verbesserungsbedürftig, lässt das 4 Megapixel-Nachfolgemodell PowerShot G2 einige der "Jugendsünden" der G1 vergessen. Die PowerShot G2 ist eigentlich die Kamera, die die G1 von Anfang an hätte sein sollen und avanciert dank der vorgenommenen Verbesserungen zu einer der interessantesten und besten Digitalkameras auf...
