Summary: About two years ago, I bought this decade-old camera as a replacement for a lost G5. At the price I got it, about $70 at the time, it was a great value with an excellent, fast lens that helped make up for the limited ISO range of 400.
Summary: I am delighted with the the Canon PowerShot G3. I love the G1 and this is very nearly the same. The major difference for me is with the CCD Color Filter Array which is GRGB in the G3 and CMYK in the G1.
Summary: Received camera quickly with the case, power cords, usb cord and TWO extra memory cards and also batteries. I'm a novice at photography, but it takes wonderfully clear pictures and video. Very pleased with product.
Summary: I've had my G3 for about 10 months now, and I've taken thousands of pictures with it. The positives: - Takes great, clear pictures under ideal conditions; often with better results than my 35mm Canon SLR! - Easy uploads to my PC. - Accepts my external Canon flash. - Excellent battery life.
Summary: First of all, if you are trying to decide between the G3 and the G5, consider that you would be paying $100 more for the G5 simply because it has an extra mega-pixel, otherwise, the cameras are identical. Now for the praise, this camera is simply amazing for it's price.
Summary: I bought this in September 2003 and am extremely satisfied with its performance. Originally I thought of getting a G5 but decided against it after reading negative reviews on [...] which by the way is an excellent source of digital camera information.
Summary: Absolutely love Mac computer. Find it much more reliable than PC and easier to use, especially in graphic design and font handling areas. Have experienced some problems, but much less than w/ PC. Production problems almost nil - not getting weird, hidden problems popping up at service bureau.
Pros: Ease of use/speed/out-of-box ready/great 'find' features
Summary: The G3 is simply an amazing digital camera. It offers all of the creative features a serious photographer could ask for, in a camera that when set to automatic, is simple enough for anyone to use.
Summary: There is absolutely nothing bad I can say about this camera. I've owned one for about 8 months and it continues to exceed every expectation. From the clarity of shots taken at max zoom (even at night), the video clips, the sound bites added to pics, to the battery life....
