I'm trying to help a friend who wants a smaller alternative to carry around vs a DSLR. I have no first hand experience with either of these cameras. Closest I've come to is the G16. The price difference is only approx. 50 dollars so it's not really the money unless saving the extra 50 is an added bonus. The G15 is the more expensive. Other than the size and weight...........I'm not sure what differences are involved here. I suppose since both have the same size sensor (I believe) and both...
I am considering getting an RX100M2. I was looking at some of the test images from the imaging-resource.com review, and what I see is puzzling: Sony RX100M2 Portrait Test (ISO 200) Canon G15 Portrait Test (ISO 200) The Canon G15 has a much smaller sensor, yet its portrait test images look much sharper and nicer than those of the RX100M2 at lower ISO levels. Canon's images degrade more quickly at higher ISO levels, but they are still a bit better than the Sony images. I thought perhaps the...
I have been reading the reviews and comparisons on DPR for the various classes and sizes of compact cameras with interest. Basically I've been using an old Canon Ixus 500 P&S for years and it's died, and it's time to start learning photography. I am basically in need of a compact camera with easy, ergonomic manual controls. Simple operation would lessen the overall difficulty and increase motivation levels to get out there and experiment and get some practice. Excessive menu navigating is a...
Hi there, I'm quite new to photography and I bought a Canon G15. I have had for a couple months and love it. Now that I have taken more and more photos, I became interested in wide angle photography. Can somebody recommend a good wide angle lens? I learned that Canon G15 required an adapter or something so we can attach another lens or something. I really appreciate the help and time. Thank you.
Hello! This is my first post even though I have been following dpreview for years now, on and off. I'm currently looking for a replacement for my Canon 40D. I'm in the market because I wan't to shoot video and pics of my future dog that will be born sometime in april onwards. The 40D doesn't have video and that's the main reason I need a new camera. I don't want to shoot crappy Samsung Galaxy S3 video. I'm also an artist, and although my photography has been on a break, I would like to have...
Due to a previous problem with a screen protector, I ask this question. What is a good one guaranteed to be easy to remove. Last one I used on a G10 cost me $180 to have Canon repair get the glue off the LCD screen. Actually they replaced the screen. I used everything including acetone and Goo Gone before sending it in for repair. Scared to use one now. I need protectors for my G10 and G15. Any help would be appreciated. --Christian Amateur Photographer
Hi fellows!I have recently purchased G15, very pleased :-) Have a couple of questions: 1. Is it able to be charged via USB cable? While travelling, those kind of devices are extremely useful - http://www.ebay.com/bhp/portable-usb-charger 2. When connected to PC, G15 is detected as "Digital Camera", but I would like to have it as Standart USB flash drive... Is it possible to substitute the driver (i have done it for my I-river mp3 player successfully)? Thank you in advance.
Do some of the G15 lenses suffer the old lens self scratch by it's protecting shutter blades as did many other "D" series models? I purchased new a G11 several years ago just to have it scratch it's lens. Of course, I returned it during the sellers return period. Before that experience, I purchased a used G10. I chose a used one trying to bypass the lens scratch problem since it had "so called" proved itself not to ruin it's lens. Later I sold this great camera to a friend and got it back a...
Unfortunately my nice G15 was accidently knocked off a table onto a hard floor nearly 3 feet below. It made a nasty bang but it looks OK and all the functions seem to work. Just a bit concerned as my wife is taking it to Europe in a couple of months. Any others out there have had their G series hit the floor pretty hard?
