"Great camera for what it is"4.0 starson by bondmayvn
Pros: image quality is very good for a point-and-shoot camera
Cons: Almost all of these small CCD sensor cameras exhibit noisy images even at ISO 400
Summary: Luminous Landscape did a comparison between a 35+ Megapixel Hasselblad and the G10, by printing out several equivalent-sized prints.
No contest? Not quite.
Multiple photo experts inspected these prints.
They essentially could not tell the prints apart.
This does NOT mean that the G10 is a DSLR equivalent. It DOES mean that, for a point and shoot camera, it more than holds its own.
Particularly handy are the readily accessible ISO and exposure adjust dials. AND, it shoots RAW.
This will be a very handy backup for DSLR owners who don't want to "shlep" their equipment around on any particular day. And it will be a fine camera for those who want more creative control and quality than a typical small camera provides.
Nice work Canon.
