Editor's Review

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.

Canon PowerShot G16 Reviews

Canon PowerShot G16 Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users

Top quality optics, reliability, and convenience of use are just some of the reasons that customers choose Canon digital cameras. One of the top digital camera manufacturers in the world today, Canon has attained a reputation for manufacturing some of the finest digital cameras and digital SLRs available on the market. Consumers looking for top quality cameras often have at least a few cameras by Canon on their shortlist. Then it should come as no surprise that Canon has frequently won PC Magazine's Reader's Choice Award for Service and Reliability and camera models are consistently given top marks in reviews.

Canon is not generally a cheap brand at all. In spite of this, Canon digital cameras have achieved the best buy status. This means that you get great value for the extra money. In the recent past, Canon begun releasing a number of models that are more inexpensive, while providing respectable results. The Canon PowerShot A1200 is one such camera. Unlike many other models you'd find at this price, the A1200 has a small optical viewfinder that makes it easy to shoot outdoors as well as AA batteries.

A lot of other Canon digital cameras have earned high praise across the board as well, including the least expensive Powershot A series, the SD or ELPH series compact point-and-shoots, and the Rebel consumer dSLRs like the T4i. The majority of Canon camera buyers and aficionados are attracted by the quality of the design, simplicity of use and the high quality of picture these digital cameras offer. Some of the best Canon digital cameras include the Canon enthusiast compacts to be found in the S and G series cameras. The advanced digital camera market has been dominated by these models for a few years now, appealing to both amateurs and professionals requiring something pocketable. The Canon PowerShot G15, for example, has a swiveling LCD screen, a 12 megapixel sensor and a very fast lens perfect for low light photography.

Lately, Canon has been ramping up the specifications across its mid and high-end models by adding features like GPS and WiFi. These better specifications differentiate the upper models from lower-end cameras, but mean that they also have a higher price tag. With so many features you can find and so many models available, it's always in your best interest to do your research and read Canon digital camera reviews and ratings. Experts recommend reading reviews from users like you to find out if a specific model is right for you.
