Canon PowerShot G7

Camera Labs
1 February 2007
  • Summary: The Canon PowerShot G7 is undoubtedly a very powerful and capable compact camera. It offers fine control over exposure and focusing and has a quality lens with a useful 6x optical range, along with effective image stabilisation and impressive macro facilities. As our results pages show, the G7 is also capable of recording a high degree of detail, so long as you shoot using the lower sensitivities.
  • Pros: 6x zoom with stabilisation and superb macro, Flash hotshoe for external Speedlites, Dedicated ISO dial and control wheel, Great creative control and neat on-screen graphics
  • Cons: No flip-out screen; no grip to speak of, Noise above 200 ISO, Loss of features from predecessors, eg RAW, A640 and EOS 400D compelling alternatives

Canon Powershot G7

  • Summary: The Canon Powershot G7 is the kind of camera that not only makes you feel like a better photographer, but helps you become one too, mixing both comprehensive and happily reliable hand holding features with a plethora of real photographic controls that, along with build quality, at times exceeds that offered by many – if not most – budget DSLRs.

  • Summary: A well-built, high-resolution digicam with enough adjustments to delight gadget freaks, impressive video facilities and above average performance.Canon's new PowerShot G7 has much to recommend it over earlier G-series models, with a redesigned body that's slimmer and 60 grams lighter than its predecessor and has classic rangefinder-like styling. Sensor resolution is now 10-megapixels and the vari-angle LCD is replaced by a fixed 2.5-inch monitor.

  • Excerpt: Quando la Canon concepì la PowerShot G1 già qualche anno fa, probabilmente ebbe la intenzione di convertire quella fotocamera nella prima di una lunga saga. La sesta evoluzione di questa stirpe prende corpo nella PowerShot G7, che apporta novità interessanti, sacrifica aspetti tanto rilevanti come il formato RAW e torna a scontrarsi con alcune delle pietre che già si interposero nel cammino dei modelli anteriori.
  • Pros: buona qualità di immagine, costruzione robusta, quadrante per controllare la sensibilità, incorpora una slitta a contatto caldo.
  • Cons: scompare il RAW, il display già non è rotatorio, la messa a fuoco un pò lenta e imprecisa, troppi errori cromatici.
