I have waited to post an opinion on this camera until I spent some time using it. This camera produces good images (for a compact) under good lighting conditions, but so do many other compacts available for less money, and more importantly, less bulk. (I may as well carry an SLR with me) I really have tried to like this camera but I'm going to trade it in for something smaller.

i have regretted choosing this camera over the sony v-3, even though that one is 2 years old already. sometimes the camera doesn't autofocus properly, the menu and controls are weirdly placed and un-intuitive, you have to choose options each time you change the mode (like from automatic to manual & back to automatic) you have to re-set your settings from scratch. the worst case si that whenever you go to automatic you have to re-turn the flash off if you don't want automatic flash, instead ...

This camera truly had the potential to be something special, instead it turned out to be an overpriced A640 with an ISO dial on top. Problems: As we all can see Canon has removed all critical features that made previous G series models exceedingly UNIQUE such as: RAW mode, top mounted status LCD, a real lens cap, nice hand grip. There is no longer any significant distinction between the G series V.S. the A series other than high build quality. I will definitely give this camera credit for its ...

I bought G7 and love it. I use it as a pocket camera (I have a 20D), or my wife will use it if she travelling. I list a few points why I like it: 1. The picture quality is excellent. Specially, the resolution is very high (I mean the picture quality, not the 10M pixels). If has raw data, would be better, but I don't mind very much. The flash performace is good in night shot, beyond my expectation. 2. 1/1.8" sensor is used in G7, bigger than most pocket camera. Bigger sensor could deliver ...

The G7 is more of your high-end P&S with some great SLR features, however, I am slightly dissapointed with image quality especially set to 'super fine' quality - images appear far too grainy for my liking especially when viewing actual pixel resolution & like other reviewers the G7 does struggle in low light - it feels like an expensive walk-about camera & not the P&S - DSLR bridge its supposed to be. But it's not all doom & gloom - in good light it takes some good landscape pictures & video ...

Covenient for backing up my SLR's. Well built solid feel is very important to me. High image quality. Complicated menu choices. I have come to expect a lot from Canon and this camera does not dissapoint me. Problems: Would have liked RAW capture - I suppose Canon wants you to use all the menu choices instead.

Camera will return back to Future shop, not happy with iq at 80-100 ISO, camera is slow, construction is not a bad, but not perfect, impossible to remove battery and SD when camera on tripod (Leica M8 has super removable plate with tripod mount), viewfinder at 35mm not full and not accurate, I want small and good camera with all manual control viewfinder and hot shoe to take everywhere with me, will still work with my very good and big Canon 1d II, no miracle any more Problems: image with ...

One problem - straight objects are bent outwards at the edge of an image. I noticed this when I photoed some tall buildings. Just to make sure, I took some shots at home. The line where the walls meet is a straight line but turn out to be bent if it's close to the edge of the captured image. I own an old and cheap Sony Cybershot 101. I never saw this problem on any pictures from that camera. After some more digging, this problem is mentioned at Zdnet review for Canon G7. Search for 'Canon ...
