Summary: The review is not for the camera itself, but for this exact bundle: I ordered this on sale a few days ago, and it advertised 2 memory cards and a memory card wallet. I received one memory card and no wallet.
Summary: Very good camera, closer to a 1/1.7 camera than to a DSLR. Once you've accepted that, you won't have unreasonable expectations. In most respects aside from say 1 hour of daylight and the 20mp resolution, 1/1.7 cameras such as the S120, the G16 or the LX7 are better because optics are more...
Summary: I think a lot of people miss the point of this camera. It is not a DSLR. It is not really a P&S. It is more along the lines of a Leica M8 without the steep price or the interchangeable lenses. What it is great for is street shooting..
Pros: Good lens., Easy to use manual control, Good resolution., Perfectly acceptable noise at 400, not bad at 800., (face it, if there was no noise at 800 on a camera, why would they even bother with 100), Build quality, Not so dinky that it is hard to hold
Summary: I like the retro look and solidity of this camera, but and there is a big but with this camera, it's the 10 megapixels of G7, due to the small sensor its almost impossible to take a shot without noise unless the lighting is absolutely perfect.
Summary: I purchased this camera for a trip to Europe. My brother has owned several Canon SLRs plus a Leica, and recommended this camera for me. I mostly used the P mode and set the ISO. I was amazed at the outstanding results from a smaller (non-SLR) camera.

Summary: Canon PowerShot G7 Review I was looking for the smallest high quality camera with an image quality as close as possible to DSLR performance and small enough to carry with me more often when it's hard to carry a heavy SLR gear. I found that the G7 might fit the description.
Summary: Like A-Rod, in the review before me, I bought this camera for a trip to europe, as an upgrade. My aging Powershot S400 was great in its day, but it was 4 megapixels, and the focusing motors were starting to get old and a little sloppy. For the trip of a lifetime, I wanted a better camera.
Excerpt: The Canon PowerShot G7 seemed like such a great investment, I mean, 6x optical zoom and 10 mega-pixels in such a small compact camera? there had to be a catch, well fortunately for me I didn’t find any, the camera always worked perfectly, never a glitch or anything, the …
