One of our favorite advanced compacts gets an upgrade in the G16, introduced in October 2013. The G16's older sibling, the G15, was noted for its image quality, bright lens and design; the G16 continues that same tradition but adds wi-fi. Sporting a 12.1 megapixel 1/1.7" sensor and a f1.8 lens, the G16 should perform well even in challenging scenarios, like low light. Canon's fast processor, quick autofocus and continuous shooting up to 12.2 fps also makes the G16 a speedy performer. Canon is also known for delivering better video quality; the G16 records video at 60 fps even in MP4 format.
