My G16 arrived today. It was a returned item by a costumer, completely checked in the chop and with 12 months warranty (normal 24 months). There was no cosmetic damage, the camera works flawless and everything was in the box. Normal price here is around 369€. I think it is a good deal for 280€, what do you think? --Dogs are the best human.Guy

Hello , I just bought a canon g16. It seems to be a good cam, but the rear lcd panel moves very slightly when pressed on one corner. When once corner is pressed the other corner seems to come up a bit. maybe 1/4th a mm . Should I return it ?

Headed to Bhutan to shoot Buddhist masked dance festivals.  Am thinking an HD movie in slow motion with the miniature effect could be something special with the fast whirling and jumping through the air, temple in background, etc. I've figure out everything except how to move the position and orientation of the "sharp" area. David Busch's guide book says, "Press the metering mode button and then use the following controls:" Metering mode button?  I can't find that anywhere.  Got any ideas?...

Hi there, I'm just getting used to using my new Canon G16. I've been experimenting with the Background Defocus setting but can't seem to figure out if it's possible to adjust the resolution settings so that the files are higher quality. Grateful in advance for any advice on whether or not this is possible, and if it is, how to adjust! Thanks!

i have a Canon G16 and love it. The only thing I wish it had was more zoom as we love to take photos of birds. So, as I want to get a camera for my boyfriend, I would like to get him one with a zoom of say 20x, though it could be higher. The camera also must be fast (love the speed of my G16). His current camera is slow, even with fast memory cards and so often the bird flies away before he can get the shot. It is very important to him that the camera is small. Even my G16 is bigger than he...

Comparing some low-light videos of the G15 with the G16, the G16 seems to have way to much noise "correction" for videos, almost making everything look blurry. I've never seen it addresed anywhere so I don't know if I'm an unique case. Is there any workaround?

Hello, I wanted to make this thread to compare my experience with others. How is the sound quality when you record videos in your Canon cameras ? So far , for me : Canon SD700 (or Ixus 800) : slight hiss, but very bearable. Canon S95 : almost silent (faint hiss maybe). Canon G16 : loud hiss, very annoying. Canon G7X : almost silent++, better than S95. No hiss at all. The best of the 4. No zooming or clicking sound either. I still don't understand why the G16 sound is so bad. You could...

I'm taking a pretty major trip to the UK this fall and am looking to purchase a new camera to go along for the ride. For the last six years I've been using a Sony W230 that I love but it's never done a good job in low light or indoors without flash and I'm tired of washed out photos. I originally set out with a budget of no more than $300. After two days of reading reviews and specs I feel like I'm going in circles. I just want something that takes good photos and will shoot in...

Hi- Short summary: Experienced photographer. I've done homework but not tried cameras yet. Narrowed down to 5 (bullet list below) with good deals right now. Budget is $500. Wonder about some things that I may not be able to tell until I've used a camera for a while (2nd bullet list below). Any opinions? Even other cameras that I should consider? ---------------------------------------------- I wish there was a general compact camera forum, as most people seem to compare these cameras across...

I need a new 'compact'camera, have been searching quite a lot, Nikon P7800, Olympus Stylus 1, Panasonic LX100, Canon G16 and some others, but finally the Sony RX10 appears te be the best of all of them. Therefore I was rather puzzled (and a little bit shocked) to see two pics on http://www.techradar.com/reviews/cameras-and-camcorders/cameras/compact-cameras/sony-rx10-1189945/review/6: What is going on here? If you go to the site and look at the samples 100% you see horrible smearing...
