Canon PowerShot G10 Review
In the G10, the high resolution mode (1024x768) is gone. Instead the user has the option of VGA (640x480) at 30 FPS, and 320x240 at 30 FPS (the compact mode that captured movies at 160x120 is now gone). The time lapse mode is gone too, so that there are now only three settings in the movie mode - Standard, Colour Accent and Colour Swap.
The user can apply many of the effects from still photographic modes such as the my colour settings and the ND filter. White balance is also available, as is exposure compensation via the dedicated exposure compensation dial.
Video files are now recorded in MOV format instead of AVI. The movie quality is excellent (the MOV files are large; about 1.7MB/s for VGA/30fps) with no really obvious artifacts and good exposure, there is still a lot of noise at high ISO. As stills cameras go, the G10 remains a pretty good movie camera.
|There is a dedicated movie mode on the main mode dial, which is where the screen captures here were taken. As with stills recording you can choose the amount of information overlaid on the live preview image.|
|You can, if you so desire, shoot your movies using the Color Accent and Color Swap effects.|
|There is a simple brightness control which can be used during the recording of a clip (zoom is available, but it is only digital zoom). In movie mode you can preset the brightness level. Here you can also see the exposure compensation at work in the movie mode.|
|In movie mode the FUNC menu offers quick access to white balance, My Colors effects and movie size / frame rate. There is a also a cut down record menu in Movie mode.|
|Whilst recording you get a basic screen showing elapsed time (you can optionally turn on the grid too).|
|In playback mode you get some basic controls for playing movies, slow motion, fast forward and rewind and edit.|
|Choose edit and you can trim the start and end of the movie clip, and save the result as a new file or overwrite the existing clip.|
