DPreview’s Take On The Canon Powershot G15

DPreview's Take On The Canon Powershot G15

DPreview's review of the Canon PowerShot G15 is online. Generally very positive impressions. From the conclusion:

  • Good low-ISO image detail and reliable metering
  • Versatile, sharp and fast 28-140mm F1.8-2.8 lens
  • Good balance between noise reduction and detail retention at higher ISOs
  • Fast and responsive operation
  • Very pocketable format
  • Fast and reliable AF system
  • Very effective Image Stabilization system
  • Excellent 920k dot screen
  • Optical viewfinder useful in very bright light (but is relatively inaccurate, and has no shooting info)
  • Lots of external controls including two control dials and an exposure compensation dial
  • Customizable control dials and Shortcut-button
  • Excellent build quality and body materials
  • Decent battery life

There is (obviously) also a Cons section:

  • Exposure compensation dial does not work in video mode (but you can set exposure compensation using the AEL button when the mode dial is set to movie)
  • No swivel screen (vs predecessor and some competitors)
  • No automated panorama mode (only stitch-assist)
  • HDR mode only works well with the camera on a tripod
  • Auto ISO only uses up to ISO 1600
  • Matt surface a little prone to scratches

 

If you're in hurry, jump directly to the conclusion sections, to the sample images, or see the JPG and RAW comparisons.
