Canon PowerShot G15 review

 

If you're looking for pro features in a compact camera, the PowerShot G15 has them in spades. It has an optical viewfinder, can take lens filters and even has a useful hotshoe for connecting an external flash. So we know this is no point-and-shoot but...

Excellent image quality, Optical viewfinder, Pro controls

Chunky design, Fixed screen

Canon PowerShot G15

 

The Canon PowerShot G15 has had a lot of time to ponder its market position. It's been two whole years since the launch of the previous G12 model, and it's used that time wisely - the G15 is smaller, sports a new design and simultaneously crams in a...

Wide aperture throughout zoom range is impressive, smaller than predecessor, great image quality straight from camera, raw capture, impressive autofocus in all lighting conditions, excellent stabilisation system

Expensive, bulky, shorter zoom than some competitors, 85 per cent field-of-view in viewfinder is limiting and there's zero focus or settings feedback to the eye, high ISO settings still aren't all that, occasional "black out" issue

The Canon PowerShot G15 is an undeniably impressive compact camera. It's not going to suit all tastes on account of its bulky, larger-than-average build, but for those after full control and both exceptional performance and image quality then there are...

Canon G15 review

 

What does this upgrade of the popular G12 offer?

Direct dials and buttons ; Sleeker body than G12 ; Great f/1.8 lens

No touchscreen ; No articulating screen ; Poor viewfinder

After quite a significant waiting period, the Canon G12 has finally been upgraded in the shape of the 12.1 million pixel Canon PowerShot G15, unveiled at Photokina 2012.

Canon PowerShot G15 review

 

While its 920k dot resolution LCD is fixed where we might have again liked it angle adjustable, Canon claims to have improved auto focus speed by over 50% when compared with its predecessor – locking onto target in 0.17 seconds, a claimed fastest in...

As with previous G series PowerShots, whilst quality is not an exact match, the G15 will appeal most greatly to existing DSLR owners looking for a smaller backup for those shoot-from-the-hip photo opportunities.

Immaculate photos and superb controls, but slower than the competition and currently overpriced

Canon PowerShot G15 review

 

With so many advanced compact cameras now available, the Canon PowerShot G15 may not hold the lofty position among enthusiast photographers that its predecessors did. That is not to say it isn't an excellent compact camera, though, as it is certainly...

Canon PowerShot G15

 

While this is a Digital Camera it makes an excellent bridge unit for those intending to make the jump to a DSLR unit as it has that rarely seen item a viewfinder as well as a decent TFT screen so all groups are catered for.

The Canon PowerShot G15 compact digital camera measures 11x4x7cm when switched off, you can add another 3.7cm to the middle figure the width. It weights 350grams. It does have a pop up flash unit but it also has a shoe so you can attach an external...

Canon PowerShot G15

 

After recently spending some quality time with the G15 in the Maluti mountains, our love affair with the G-series is back on.

Fast f1.8 lens, compact but solid body, great handling, very good image quality

No in-camera stitching, HDR needs a tripod, optical viewfinder not always accurate

Canon PowerShot G15 review

 

A good way to think of of Canon's PowerShot G15 is like an EOS digital SLR without a lens mount. It sports a similar rock-solid build – here aluminium – and control layout to an EOS camera, but is of course more compact. Canon claims the G15 17%...

Built-to-last aluminium construction. Solid feature set. Optical viewfinder. 5x optical zoom usable during capture of video and stills. Manual top plate dials. Pop-up flash

LCD screen is fixed. Bulky. Pricey given that a digital SLR could be bought for the same price

Canon PowerShot G15 review

 

Think of the PowerShot G15 as an EOS DSLR without the lens mount

Built-to-last aluminium construction, solid feature set, optical viewfinder, 5x optical zoom usable during capture of video and stills, manual top plate dials, pop-up flash

LCD screen is fixed, bulkier overall than all but Nikon’s P7700, pricey given that a DSLR could be bought for even its lower street price around £440

As with previous G series PowerShots, whilst quality is not an exact match, the G15 will appeal most greatly to existing DSLR owners looking for a smaller backup for those shoot-from-the-hip photo opportunities.
