I just received my new Canon G16. The language is in Japanese.

Can anyone help me change the language to English?

I figured it out and reset to English.

For those who have not read this post yet, but would have been willing to help out? I thank you in advance for your concern and willingness to help.

What I did, using my G15 I went to menu settings and saw where on the "Change Camera Settings" list the language option was. It's one above the last setting, which is "Reset" as you scroll down.

On the G16 I went to that position on "Change camera Settings" (which was in Japanese) pressed okay and a Country list of languages came up. Scrolled to English and pressed "OK" Everything is now Jake!! Which is AOK.

BTW, since the camera language was in Japanese I was concerned that it was a gray market camera with no warranty in the USA. However, went to the Canon Registration site to register my new G16 camera.....and it registered with no problem.

I assume that means everything is okay?

It should be cheaper in the USA than in Japan anyway.
