Canon PowerShot G10

 

It's a compact camera that costs more than some DSLRs, so what's so special about the Canon G10?

The Canon PowerShot G10 is still going to be the benchmark by which all other high-spec compacts are measured, but it's no longer the top dog. It is beaten on picture quality and portability by the smaller, lighter and slightly cheaper Panasonic LX3,...

Canon PowerShot G10 review

 

Looking to expand your photographic horizons but don't fancy carrying a full DSLR? This retro ‘compact' could be just the ticket…

Chunky, but that's a small price to pay for the finest camera yet to bridge the SLR-compact divide

Canon PowerShot G10 digital camera

 

The PowerShot G10 steps up to the enthusiast end of digital camera plate with more than just a few tweaks over its predecessor, the popular PowerShot G9. As you might expect, the G10 is the recipient of a new, higher resolution sensor, with a 14.7...

Good image quality, JPEG and RAW capture, good build, comprehensive feature set, great control layout and handling

"Spongy" feel to shutter button, shadow noise when using i-Contrast, noise issues above ISO 800

We feel the G10 has received a set of valuable upgrades over the G9, particularly controls on the top plate and there are distinct performance improvements too. Images are very good with very slight softness by default but the lens is a cracker....

Canon PowerShot G10 review

 

No matter how small they make them, you can't fit a DSLR in your pocket. But is the brand-new PowerShot G10 is the next best thing?

Fantastic build quality ; Great lens ; Crisp LCD screen

Image quality is a mixed bag

The 1/1.7-inch sensor is limiting, especially at high ISOs, and the hike to 14.7MP hasn't exactly helped. But the PowerShot G series has always provided irstrate design and control, and the G10 is an excellent evolution, especially with its wide-angle...

Canon's G10 is aimed squarely at photography enthusiasts, with businesslike styling and lots of hands-on control.

Canon PowerShot G10 review

 

There's something appealing about the Canon PowerShot G10's old-school rangefinder styling, and the little lights that glow orange next to the old-timey ISO and EV compensation dials.

Overall, the Canon PowerShot G10 is a pleasure to use, but we wish the company had focused more on noise control instead of just cramming in more megapixels. We loved carrying this sturdy camera around and we appreciated its highly useful dials, but...

Canon PowerShot G10

 

With its new 28-140mm zoom (equivalent), and its 14.7 MP CCD sensor, the Canon PowerShot G10 offers a solid alternative to bridge and D-SLR cameras. The G10 lets the user choose the mode of exposure (P, Tv, Av, M) and saves images in RAW format. It is...

Canon PowerShot G10

 

Firstly, with 14.7 megapixels, the canon Powershot G10 as the name suggest, rates very high on image quality. Combine this with the DIGIC 4 image processing technology and what you get are images that are not only detailed to the dot, but also...

The technology works with the DIGIC Image processor to enhance the speed of focus as well as exposure, accuracy and the white balance. The Servo AF innovation enables the Digital camera to with hold its focus despite movement of the camera while taking...
