Canon G15 reviews:

The G15’s video resolution has been upped to 1920 x 1080 p, which brings it in line with most other current enthusiast compact cameras. The video footage from the Canon G15 is very smooth with good detail. More details about this, you can read on The author of this Canon G15 review concludes:

 The G15 is an evolutionary update from the G12, and on the whole the changes Canon has made look sensible and well-considered. The camera is clearly a well-refined product and a joy to use. It is very quick and responsive in operation, built like a tank and offers the most external controls in its class. Combine that with the fast 28-140mm F1.8-2.8 lens and you’ve got yourself an ultra-versatile pocketable tool that can be operated almost like a DSLR and earns itself our highest award.

The Canon G15 has a pretty standard macro range for the enthusiast compact class. The distances stay pretty low through most of the focal range until you get to around 4.5x, at which point the minimum distance jumps to 35 cm. More about this you can read on Canon G15 review from website.

The Canon G15 produces images of excellent quality. It records noise-free JPEG images at ISO 80 – 800 with some noise and slight colour desaturation at ISO 1600. The Canon G15 handled chromatic aberration well. More details about G15’s image quality you can read on Canon G15 review from The experts of this website conclude:

 The Canon G15 offers enough new bells and whistles to make it a worthwhile upgrade from the previous model and keep it competitive with its main rivals, most notably the very similar Nikon Coolpix P7700.

The controls of Canon G15


While the Canon G15 is very much a G-series camera in appearance, evolutionary changes and those made as a result of revised functionality do mean that it results quite differntly from the G12 before it. These things are mentioned by the experts of website.

The  G15’s crowded mode dial has options for everyone’s personal tastes, from traditional modes to full Automatic. More about controls and shooting modes of Canon G15 you can read on website.
