Summary: This camera has features of a much more expensive camera. The mix of usage as a SLR and a point and shoot make this camera as easy to use as one wants, or as customized. That and the Canon brand name says alot to many buyers including myself.
Summary: I had a Canon G11 a few years ago and I just picked up this G6 used on Ebay. The G6 was like new and it has a faster lens than the G11. It's smaller and I think it gets pictures that are just as good as the G11.
Summary: The Canon PowerShot G6 is an excellent option for many reasons. In today's technological age, one might think this piece obsolete. However, it is not by a longshot. With its 7.1 megapixel output, this little gem is still very viable. It is a great point and shoot for the novice. Even more advanced photographers will enjoy the many features offered by the Canon PowerShot G6. Its features are reminicent of the pricey, bulkier SLRs.
Summary: I bought this camera because of the reviews of others and it fit into my budget. It fit into my budget because it is an older model camera, but that doesn't diminish its quality. It is a quality, well-built camera. The side viewfinder takes a little getting used to. It produces Great quality pictures. Has enough options and features. I like the look, the feel is alittle different if your used to point and shoot.
Summary: The first thing you need to know is that this is a point and shoot camera, not an SLR. Although, it really is the next best thing. I owned a Canon PowerShot G6 years ago and loved it, so when I needed another point and shoot camera I bought it again. I especially like the macro and panoramic features. It works better than my SLR where these two features are concerned.
Summary: Great camera. I've bought two of these: one for my niece and one for my girlfriend - both photographic novices. They've had excellent results, thanks to camera ergonomics, excellent glass (G6 was last G-camera to use F2.0 optics, later models used IS in lieu of fast glass), terrific sensor and loads of features. If you don't want to use abundant feature, it works great on auto as well. Doesn't have later G-model problems with dust spots, lens getting stuck, etc.
Summary: I bought another Canon G6 because i had one before which was lost on a cruise, I purchased a Canon G10 and a Canon Rebel, but they did not have the Custom features programable like the G6. I take a lot of Model Automotive photos and cannot get a clear picture of the whole model in focus with any of the programs aqvailable in the G10 or Rebel. I can program the G6 and save the settings to a custom area and recall it any time I get ready to photgraph any Model Autos.
Summary: Canon's 2004 "prosumer" digital camera is much larger and heavier than compacts, but its sensor is 50% bigger, so it yields magnificent enlargements with its modest 7MP. (You probably don't need more.) The 4X zoom lens is f/2 at the wide end and f/3 at the tele, unusually fast, which allows you to throw backgrounds out of focus for portraits. Works fine in "auto" mode, but can be adjusted many ways, if you don't mind the complexity. Back LCD panel swivels out.
