Excerpt: Picked one up for a steal and found this to be a pleasantly delightful camera to use, as well as producing quite stunning image quality. Low noise to ISO 200 and decent at ISO 400, but images at base ISO outdoors just shine.
Excerpt: Highly regarded by others and myself, having owned G series from the first G1 through to this unit, you can NOT go wrong with Canon. I had a G5 unit that just stopped working one day. Canon, with warranty expired, said they'd try to fix it.
Excerpt: Recently purchased the Canon G6 and to date I am extremely pleased with it! I particularly like its heft and feeling of solidness. The swivel LCD is an absolute must-have on this or any digital camera.
Excerpt: I was very impressed with this camera. Any experienced photographer should be able to coax very high quality shots from it. And, I'm sure that fact is not a revelation to anyone. I used the 30D and the G-6 to shoot similar scenes in Glenwood Springs, CO.
Excerpt: The Canon G6 is a great 7 MP CCD surrounded by a sadly inadequate body and interface. The battery life is excellent, but trying to view the LCD in daylight is very difficult. The flip screen is great, but the camera's flash is almost useless. I've had good results doing diopter macro work.
Excerpt: Only mostly negative aspects will be covered in this opinion, as Phil Askey has done a superb job covering all else in his 12/04 full review. For the extended features and price of this camera, I feel that the zoom range should have been wider-say 28mm- 140mm, rather than the 35mm-140mm it is.
Excerpt: Several years ago following the praise from numerous internet reviews I purchased an Olympus C3030 (3.3mp), however I was disappointed over image quality and as a consequence purchased the Canon G6 during spring 2005.
Excerpt: Like many have said...excellent images, but horrendous low light focusing. It's one thing for the focus to slow down, but this camera misses in low light and misses ALOT. I have plenty of experience with digital gear with both DSLR and P&S cameras and this is the worst low light focusing peformance...
Summary: I had been researching digital cameras for some time before making my purchase of my G6 a few weeks ago. For a few years, I've been shooting with my Minolta Maxxum 5 SLR, because it was lightweight and gave me all the things I needed in a camera.
Summary: This camera has incredible features - 7.1 megapixels, ability to shoot RAW, a much clearer zoom than the powershots directly below it. However, I have had problems with focusing on finer details on objects, or if the object is too close to the camera.
