4 out of 5 eggsGood but not great..

Comments: It does exactly what it's suppose to do, takes good pics. I'm very pleased with the quality of the pictures...the only thing is that it's features are mediocre in the scheme of things (compared to others in it's price range) The zoom is boring. It's focus speed is a bit better then my Fuji 3800 but I've seen a bit faster. It's construction is rugged though. It feels good in the hands. I'm not sure if I'd recommend it or not. Shop around for other $xxx dollar cameras first.

5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: The Canon PowerShot G6 camera was my 1st upgrade from film to digital. After looking at reviews I decided this was an excellent choice to try digital. I have been nothing but amazed with the great results and all of the features of this great camera for the price. This camera has features that you would only expect cameras in the $2-3k price range to have. After having the camera for 2½ months I had a flash defect. Also to my amazement, NewEgg was willing to replace the camera living up to there 1 year warranty policy. This service puts my mind to ease when dealing with an Internet Provider. NewEggs service is very Professional, Fast, Efficient and very competitive on price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat upgrade to G-Series!

Comments: Just bought it a few days ago and already can see that it is a major upgrade from my previous camera, the G3. Amazing resolution. Faster performance. Better placement of controls. More powerful battery. What's not to like?

5 out of 5 eggsBest Digicam for The Price!

Comments: I've had this camera now for about 2 months. I upgraded from a G2 and every aspect of this camera is an improvement over that model. I loved my G2 and it served me well for 4 years. The G6 improves on everything the G2 had to offer. A couple of the best features include the built in Neutral Density filter. This is not a software filter it's an actual hardware filter that drops into place. I also love the Super Macro mode that really allows you to get great close up shots. RAW write speeds are better then just about any other camera other then high end DSLR's.

One of the main gripes about the G2 was that it had bad ergonomics. The G6 greatly improves on this. It's smaller lighter has a better feel and faster performance.

Of course the measure of any digicam is how good the pictures are. Well, the G6 has stunning picture quality. I thought the G2 was great but was blown away by the G6. Check out my pbase photo galleries from the G2 and G6.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Image Quality

Comments: I ordered this camera from Newegg about six weeks ago and have been thrilled with the results. I am very particular when it comes to digital cameras and this camera has lived up to, and even exceeded, my expectations. The ergonomics and ease of use can not be beat and the image quality is superb.
