Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Canon PowerShot G5: (5 megapixel prosumer) The PowerShot G3 built on the success of the G2, it has gained a huge following and proves to be very popular among the prosumer 'shutterbug' photographer as well as those wanting to develop their photography skills.
Pros: Excellent resolution, as good as we could expect of a compact five megapixel, Good metering, good tonal balance which maintains shadow detail, Good natural light white balance, strong and balanced colours, Fast lens (F2.0 - F3.0), Control over cameras internal processing algorithms (saturation, t...
Cons: Chromatic aberrations visible at wide angle or maximum apertures, Noise above ISO 50 worse than the competition, 'Shallow angle jaggies' visible on resolution chart, Viewfinder partially obstructed by lens barrel, Control dial doesn't work well if rotated too quickly (it 'stutters'), No auto nine...
Excerpt: Big and inelegant, the Canon PowerShot G5 is a powerhouse camera with all the bells and whistles. And it takes very good shots. Underneath its utilitarian exterior is almost every function serious photographers need, including full manual control, bracketing options, RAW file saves, numerous white...
of the hottest cameras of last year was undoubtedly Canon's PowerShot
G3 (see our review).
It looks like Canon may have another hit on their hands this
year with the 5 Megapixel version of the G3, known
G5 ($799 street price).
Pros: Excellent photo quality in most situations (though note issues below), Amazing expandability in terms of lenses, flashes, Super fast performance, 4X zoom a nice change from the usual 3X zoom, CompactFlash Type II slot, Impressive movie, playback modes, Has an AF illuminator lamp, Tons of manual c...
Cons: Redeye worse than expected, Too much purple fringing, Lens blocks view through optical viewfinder at wide-angle setting, Diopter correction knob difficult to operate, The VGA movie mode found on other Canon cameras would be nice
Summary: The Powershot G5 is basically a higher resolution version of Canon's popular, four-megapixel camera. Housed in a rugged black enclosure, the PowerShot G5 features a 1/1.8" five megapixel CCD sensor that captures 2592 x 1944 pixel images with exceptional detail and color fidelity.
Canon PowerShot G5; Opening The Door To Raw Processing Power
1 January 2001
Excerpt: As full featured 5+ megapixel cameras are becoming quite common, a digicam is no longer viewed as something that's intended only for snap shooting. In fact, a growing number of photo enthusiasts are considering one of these models for their "serious" image-making. While some...
Summary: The PowerShot G series has earned Canon a good reputation and, thankfully, the G5 does nothing to dent it. Not that it will win awards for styling, as the G5 remains slightly boxy for our liking and the casing has more plastic than the G3.
Conclusion: A gépvázon lévő zoom billentyű jó megoldás. A kompatibilis objektívekkel a fotózásnál és a videofelvétel közben is állíthatjuk vele a képkivágást. A kihajtható monitor képe határozottan éles és kontrasztos.
Excerpt: В прошлом году одной из самых популярных цифровых камер стала 4х мегапиксельная Canon PowerShot G3. Своей популярностью она обязана оптимальному соотношению качества, возможностей и цены. Учитывая это, летом этого года Canon выпустила новую версию цифровой камеры серии G - PowerShot G5.
Excerpt: Canon PowerShot G5 er et relativt stort kamera, det finnes flere kameraer med liknende spesifikasjoner som er mindre. Det store, lyssterke objektivet stikker utenfor kamerahuset også når kameraet er skrudd av, men likevel vil man fint få kameraet i mange frakkelommer.
