  • Excerpt: Many of the pictures I have posted currently in my gallery were taken with these cameras.

  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Canon PowerShot G3: (4 megapixel prosumer) The PowerShot G2 has been hugely popular, it graced the number one position in our 'clicks table' for many months.
  • Pros: Excellent resolution, one of the best performances of a four megapixel, Good metering, good tonal balance which maintains shadow detail, Good natural light white balance, strong and balanced colours, Control over cameras internal processing algorithms (saturation, tone, sharpness), Low noise at I...
  • Cons: Some chromatic aberrations at or around maximum aperture, Noise at ISO 100 worse than the competition, 'Shallow angle jaggies' visible on resolution chart, although not yet seen in 'every day' shots, Viewfinder partially obstructed by lens barrel, Control dial doesn't work well if rotated too qui...

  • Excerpt: After a bit of a delay, I finally got a production model PowerShot G3! Judging by all the e-mails asking me what was taking so long, I can tell that there is a whole lot of interest in this camera!
  • Pros: Excellent photo quality in most situations, Amazing expandability in terms of lenses, flashes, Super fast performance, 4X zoom a nice change from the usual 3X zooms, Impressive movie, playback modes, Has an AF illuminator lamp, Tons of manual controls, FlexiZone focusing system lets you focus on ...
  • Cons: Redeye worse than expected (even with repeated tests), Strange chromatic aberrations (rare, but annoying), Images not as sharp as the very best 4/5 Megapixel cameras, Diopter correction knob difficult to operate, Lens blocks view from optical viewfinder at wide angles

30 December 2002
  • Conclusion: La gamme Powershot est habituellement synonyme d'appareils compacts. Le G3 déroge à la règle, avec son boîtier aux bonnes dimensions et son gros objectif non rétractile. Destiné aux photographes experts, il remplit parfaitement son rôle grâce à ses nombreuses fonctions avancées et à sa qualité...
