Canon should be ashamed. Check out the new Nikon P7800. Exactly what customers want in this class ...
ISO 80 is very good. ISO 12800 pure disaster, and anything above 400 is weak.
gpsgps: Canon you giveth me the flip T&S screen in G16 and I taketh it away from the shop, OK? Otherwise I do not considereth it. BTW, wouldn't it make sense to produce 2 versions at the same time: with flipout screen and separately without it? The names could be G16FOAMIAYPS (flip out and move it as you please screen) and G16NMPS (no movable parts screen). Or better still just repair the G1X by adding to it better macro, slightly longer zoom, brighter lens, faster autofocus and longer battery life and I wanteth no more.
That's what I asked for the G15 last year, 2 versions at the same time. Canon's answer: buy a G1X. They do not care.
SRT3lkt: this thing should be called "G15.1".
Looks more like a G9 mk ii, Canon is so far behind the competition
Rod McD: I'm still using my G12 and G1X. The G15 & 16 offer a brighter lens than the G12, but I'm not yet persuaded to part with it. There's no news here re any developments to their larger-sensor compact cameras like the G1X and EOS M. I'll be interested to see what emerges later in the year.......
I have the G11, I will replace it just because of poor video 640x480, but certainly not with the Canon because it has no swivel screen. Is Canon has not seen the new sony rx 100 ii? Unreasonable ...
I'm totally disappointed. So it's just a fancy G15, again the same small sensor .. Why again without a swivel screen? Goodbye Canon, Sony knows better ...
G10 is only 2mm thinner than the G11, insignificant 2mm, because of 2mm of thickness g15 lost swivel screen.!!??
tutek: Too bad it does not swivel screen because at 112mm is f/2.5 (G1X f/5.8) and image quality are almost identical: g15 400asa = g1x 2000-2500asa !!!!
Where'd you get that about G20, imagine or read somewhere?

hobgoblin1000: Anyone else noticed that the G10 still has the best image quality of all the Powershots? Pop it in the scene comparison and have a look (though I base this on real world use).
G10 has 14.7 mp. More megapixels give a sharper picture if there is enough light
I suggest Canon to produce two parallel versions: with and without the swivel screen. They replied: buy G1X
Something like Canon g2x: 1" sensor 1,8-2,8/25-150mm, 3" swivel screen 10fps video 1080/60p 110x75x45mm $699
kjh7: Had a chance to check out this camera. Why are people complaining? The fixed display lowers the weight, and it very clear. It's much easier to hold for longer periods because it's only 310g. The lens is bright and fast, and menu system is typical Canon, which is good. I would have liked a dedicated ISO button, but no biggie. Just waiting for the price to go down a bit.
Only when you have a camera with swivel screen you'll know how much is needed,
StacheCache: I just received my new Canon G15 late this afternoon (10/01/2012). I also got an e-mail from Canon Support saying the camera would not be available until 10/17/2012. So much for being on top of things! In the few minutes I've had a chance to play with the G-15 I gotta say I'm impressed. It is solid, well made, menus are easy to follow, buttons well-placed. The grip area is OK but could be better. The camera surface has a rough metallic feel--a little cold and industrial for my taste.
Until I checked this website a few minutes ago, I could not find a way to download a complete user manual. Also, the viewfinder, one of the main reasons I bought the camera, comes without a rubber eyecup. The opening is tiny to begin with and the lack of eyecup limits the usefulness. If anyone knows where to find an aftermarket eyecup that might work--please let me know. I checked Canon and they do not have anything that will fit this camera. Pity!
JoePhoto1: What is the big deal about articulated screens? When the first digital cameras came out with LCD screens, the viewing angle was very limited, so an articulated screen was very useful. Today, it's possible to see the screen well enough for composition at 80 degrees off center or more so the articulated screen is only necessary for self portraits or shooting behind you. I'm happy to give up the extra mechanism for the weight and size advantage, not to mention the likely lower price.
You are not right. Sometimes I look at a 90-degree, sometimes self-image, the difference in price? Maybe $ 5. How well is seen at 80 degrees? Narrow, deformed objects ... Obviously you composition is not important when you think so.
paulcf: Well that's it with Canon! I had a wonderful G1, lasted years (gave it away) and got a nice G5. It broke, Canon replaced it with a G6 which lasted a while and broke. Then I bought my son's G9 which was good until it broke too!
Canon wants $150 to fix it. I said no and tore it apart. Seems there are screws that get loose inside and short out the electronics.
So I don't care about this G15 or anything that Canon makes anymore, it's too poor quality for long term ownership. Canon seems to be more interested in disposable short life consumer products.
Gee I wish I had kept my G1! Articulated screen and the optical viewfinder was very accurate too.
My G11 after 3 years of intensive use even as a new
I have a G11 and Quick-Change filter adapter, only 3mm thin ring when the filter is not used. lensmateonline
botany: Hi, can anyone tell me if I can use Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Macro Lens for G15? Thank you.
ha ha I would 100mp camera for $ 50
Weekend Photographer: My first three digital cameras were Canon Powershots G1, G2 then G9. The first did not last long - it suffered a catastrophic power unit failure, and was replaced under warranty by the G2. That camera was the best I had of it's era. Then on to a G9. Still a good camera, but I sorely missed the flip screen. It suffered the same fate as the G1 - catastrophic power unit failure. I was keenly waiting for the new edition only to be disappointed by the absence of the flip screen. Why would Canon get rid of one of the strongest selling points of the G series? Haven't they learnt their lesson from the previous attempt to do away with it? So, now I have to look elsewhere for what I need?
flip screen. must have!
Francis Carver: Based on the photos here and specs for the new Canon G15 on the Canon web site, seems like you cannot mount a filter on the Canon G15's lens. True or false?
Može se montirati ali treba adapter. See lensmateonline
