Some customer reviews of Canon PowerShot G15

Most helpful reviews

John, Dunblane Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I have had two G9s so the G15 is an updated version of what I am used to. It has a faster lens, which is great, and is excellent for video. I am pleased the makers still use mainly metal in its construction, so it is more rugged than its rivals. Also pleased to see Canon returning to a fixed screen, rather than the swivel screen that has limited use and made the camera bulkier.
Bad points:
A disadvantage of the fast lens is that it is reluctant to use flash when I want it to, but I will just have to play with the settings. The box included a CD with a manual, but only in Chinese! However it is easy enough to find the pdf on the internet.

Good points:
Wonderful quality pics even in low light, provided you set up for the pic properly. Solid build, relatively compact size compared to DSLR camerals.
Bad points:
Colour balance in certain artificial light situations could be easier to get right. Sometimes menus not intuitive. No SD card provided.
