  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot G7 digital camera is the much-hyped latest addition to Canon's G-series line of advanced digital cameras with high-end features yet pricetags below that of typical digital SLR cameras. The Canon PowerShot G7 digital camera packs 10 megapixels and features a handy 6x optical zoom (or a 35mm to 210mm equivelant). It's lighter and slimmer than bulky digital SLR cameras.
  • Pros: 10 megapixels, 6x optical zoom, 25 shooting modes and manual controls, An advanced digital camera without the size and complexity of an SLR, Flexibility of telephoto shooting with a converter
  • Cons: No RAW shooting mode

  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot G7 is a solid enthusiast camera for those who've ruled out a budget dSLR.

  • Cons: No raw format support; relatively significant distortion at the widest angle of view; when zoomed out completely, lens intrudes into viewfinder.

  • Conclusion: There has been so much talk about what the G7 is not that I think it's only fair to look first at what it is; a superbly built, comprehensively featured and highly desirable camera that packs a lot of the functionality of a digital SLR - and an image stabilized 35-210mm lens - into a solid, compact body. It also has virtually no competition - there are super zooms with similar feature sets, but all are bigger and heavier.
  • Pros: Excellent resolution and respectable edge-to-edge sharpness across the zoom range, Classic 'rangefinder' styling looks great, fit & finish superb., Capable of very good results at lower ISO settings, ISO 200-400 usable for standard sized prints (noise and NR effects are visible, however), Huge feature set, Face detect AF a bit of a novelty but it is very effective for novice users, Real, usable photographic control, ISO dial on body and external access to all importan...
  • Cons: Many features that made the G series stand out have been removed; fast lens, raw mode, vari-angle screen, IR remote, big long-life battery, LCD status panel, Some shadow noise visible even at ISO 80, Lack of grip and 'classic styling' don't make for great handling, ISO 1600 so noisy it's pointless, ISO 3200 very low resolution, Focus sometimes hunts in low light at longer focal lengths and in macro mode, Indistinct 'half press' point and long shutter release travel ma...

  • Conclusion: Although there are fewer enthusiast cameras for the Canon PowerShot G7 to compete with, its unexciting performance, high price, and hefty weight keep it from earning an EC.
  • Pros: Superb image quality. Sharp images. Lots of options and features.
  • Cons: Shutter lag. Heavy. Expensive. Noisy at high ISOs.

Exclusive Hands On With the Canon PowerShot G7

27 November 2007
  • Excerpt: Serious shooters have prized Canon's compact G series digicams for their pro-grade features and ability to pinch-hit for their big D-SLRs. The all-new G7, which we tried at Photokina prior to the public opening, reflects that dynamic yet changes it too.

Camera Test: Canon Powershot G7

  • Excerpt: Camera Test: Canon Powershot G71285B001CanonPowershot G7Canon describes the 10MP 6x (35-210 f/2.8-4.8 equivalent) Image-stabilized zoom Canon Powershot G7 as the Flagship of the G-series. In fact, the G7 isn't just the flagship, it's the whole fleet. With its vintage black metal finish with silver highlights and accents, it is a great-looking camera. Knobs and dials sit on the top, alongside an EX-series hotshoe mount.

  • Excerpt: Canon has stolen a bit of a march on Nikon. Of course Canon and Nikon lead the camera and photography pack throughout the world in the compact, point & shoot and 35mm-equivalent SLR markets. But Canon has crept ahead of Nikon in some important areas over the past few years, particularly in the compact camera segment.
  • Pros: Canon has stolen a bit of a march on Nikon. Of course Canon and Nikon lead the camera and photography pack throughout the world in the compact, point & shoot and 35mm-equivalent SLR markets. But Canon has crept ahead of Nikon in some important areas over the past few years, particularly in the compact camera segment. I've been a Nikon SLR user all my life, but when the SLR is too bulky or simply too much for a particular outing over the past five years I've often reac...
  • Cons: The G7's physical handling ergonomics clearly suffer when compared to competitors such as the Nikon P5000 and the Canon S5. The main problem is the lack of a prominent grip on the right side. People with small to medium size hands won't encounter too much of a problem, but anyone with hands even a bit larger than medium size will need a lot of time to get used to the lack of a grip and the presence of only a single, very narrow grip strip on the front of the camera.
