Conclusion
As the newest member of Canon’s G Series cameras, the Canon G15 does not disappoint. It is an all around excellent point and shoot for anyone ranging from amateurs to seasoned professionals. The 12.1-megapixel sensor paired with the Digic 5 image processor makes for a great combination. It is able to be used in a wide variety of settings due to the vast ISO range, the great 28-140mm focal length and the fast f1.8-f2.8 lens. Add to that beautiful spec sheet the ability to shoot video at whim due to the dedicated movie button and you have a camera that will be hard to put down.

This camera has so much going for it. The body is durable and has a nice finish. It is solid while handling, quick to respond, and offers great image quality. Besides a few flaws that are pretty easy to overlook I can highly recommend this camera for a vast majority of the population. I think that professionals will respond very positively due to its nice feature set and plethora of physical buttons that negate delving into a deep in-camera menu.

Currently the Canon G15 sells for $450.

Pros:

  • Great image quality
  • Professional level mode dial with lots of physical buttons
  • Fast f1.8-f2.8 lens
  • * button
  • Solid build

Cons:

  • Below average viewfinder
  • Non-articulating screen will bother some
  • Some AF hunting in very low light
