"A compact camera for a serious photographer!"4.5 starson by massaroca
Pros: Solid camera with good image quality producing RAW/JPEG images. The camera is well built, with a solid magnesium alloy body. The lens is great as Canon products, the quality of image is great. Controls are well designed like other Canon cameras.
Cons: Battery life could be better. High level of noise above ISO 400. Could be faster.
Summary: I had a previous G9, and I can tell you, this G10 is a great improvement! You can record an JPEG and RAW image of the same picture! The solid construction (magnese alloy and rubber grip) is made for a serious photographer... The flash hot shoe is a welcome improvement, you can use all EOS digital cameras flash units. But not everything is a paradise... The camera is not fast as you can expect in this pricey equipment, and the high noise at high ISO (above 400 and in low light) can disapoint someone looking for perfect pictures. But I think this is a great camera! One of the best compact digital camera ever! This is for real serious photographer!
