Excerpt: I’ve been using this digital camera for many years now. It used to belong to my father who bought it for around RM 3000 (around USD$ 850) when it was first released to the market. He has since moved on to DSLR cameras such as Canon EOS 40D. The camera, …
Excerpt: When I purchased the Canon Powershot G2 camera, I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised. The features were numerous and the price tag made this camera affordable to not just me, but the general public. I have owned this camera for a lengthy period of time now and …
Easily the best camera on the market but too "honest"

An Excellent Camera - Image Quality Beats Many 5MP Cameras
11 April 2003
Summary: I have been using the Canon Powershot G2 for about 2 months, 4000 pictures later I am VERY impressed with this camera. The Canon Powershot G2 is a joy to use. It has a superfast F2-2.0 3x optical zoom lens.
Summary: If you are looking for a great digital camera you cannot go wrong with the G2. The camera is as easy to use as the most basic point and shoot models, but with every manual control you need to get the most out of photography.
Summary: I'm not a professional photographer but I have to say that digital is the way to go! I have Vivitar and Minolta 35mm cameras that have been "retired" for about 9 years because I got tired of paying for the processing of pictures that were out of focus, blue, etc.
Good digital camera, but much room for improvement
17 October 2002
Summary: I consider myself an advanced amateur photographer. I own a Minolta 3xi SLR, and this Canon G2 is my first digital camera. I have done extensive research on 3MP to 4MP digital camera. The final candidates are: Olympus C-4040Z, Canon G2, with G2 being the winner.
Summary: This is a great camera for the pro-consumer. I stepped up to this camera from a 1.2 MP Olympus, which I personally think took incredible pictures. I thought long and hard before moving from my trusted olympus.
Summary: Having recently purchased this camera after owning a 1.2MP camera for 3 years, I really didn't know what to expect. Pictures of similar quality, only larger? The ability to print large photo's without pixellation?
