Canon PowerShot G15 Reviewed By Gizmodo

Gizmodo published its Canon PowerShot G15 review, Canon’s latest iteration of the enormously popular PowerShot series. This enthusiasts’ compact camera sports a very fast lens (f/1.8) in a small housing with all the manual controls you may wish. RAW is also supported, price is around $500. Let’s start with what Gizmodo thinks about the design:

Kudos on this one, Canon. Where looks are concerned, the G15 goes the distance. Everything is well-proportioned and well-placed, with an understated, sleek, yet classic look to it. It is small-ish and more compact than the camera it replaces, the G12.

Image quality:

The images you will produce are quite nice. For a compact, it packs decent sharpness and solid high ISO performance, with an ISO range topping out at 12800.

About the lens:

That ultra-fast f/1.8-2.8 aperture makes for low-light goodness and a shallow depth of field. Even the terrific Sony RX100 can’t match that at the long end.
