The Canon Power Shot G16 Point-and-Shoot Camera is a compact, advanced point-and-shoot camera featuring a 12.1 megapixel 1/1.7" high-sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 image processor to produce high quality still imagery and full HD 1080p video with notable low-light quality and sensitivity to ISO 12800. The sensor and processor work together to form the Canon HS SYSTEM, which helps to improve the image quality of dimly-lit shots by reducing noise and enhancing the overall clarity. Additionally, the processor offers a range of speed-related assets throughout the camera, including a maximum sustained full-resolution continuous shooting rate of 9.3 fps for over 500 shots as well as a High Speed AF system for maintained sharpness in a variety of shooting conditions.

The built-in Canon 5x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28-140mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto length perspectives. A maximum aperture of f/1.8-2.8 contributes to working in low lighting, regardless of focal length, and also helps to isolate subject matter for shallow depth of field images. Benefitting this lens' coverage is Intelligent IS image stabilization, which automatically employs one of six distinct stabilization modes to help minimize the appearance of camera shake depending on the shooting situation. Also helping to stabilize the camera while shooting is a built-in optical viewfinder that provides an additional point of contact between one and the camera. This finder is also an ideal alternative to the rear LCD monitor when working in bright conditions or for tracking quickly moving subjects. For live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation, the 3.0" 922k-dot LCD monitor is available and provides a bright, clear means for image composition and review.

For instant sharing and transferring of photos and movies, built-in wireless connectivity is available and helps to expedite sending imagery directly to an Android or iOS mobile device through the use of the free Canon CameraWindow app. Also helpful is the CANON iMAGE GATEWAY, which serves as an intuitive interface for uploading images directly to social networking and cloud sites from the G16.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat camera with an optical view finder

Pros: It has an optical viewfinder, image stabilization, shoots video, feels great in the hand.

Cons: The built-in WiFi doesn't support any standard protocols (FTP, SFTP, CIFS, etc) and must run through Canon's online services for some reason. I guess their bandwidth is free?

5 out of 5 eggsLow Light Quality is Superb

Pros: Purchased this camera to take pictures at my son's high school graduation. You know, far away from stage, high zoom, folks moving, etc... With every other small digital camera I have owned this would have resulted in blurry poor quality pictures. This camera did an awesome job. The pictures turned out great. And the capability of taking very fast continuous shots enabled me to snap 20+ pictures while he walked across stage. No worrying if I was going to catch him with his eyes closed or with some awkward look on his face. Very impressed with the camera.

Cons: The printed manual is not very good. It goes through the wireless setup but not really into the camera features. Took some time to figure out the settings.

Other Thoughts: I have wanted to buy a digital SLR but my wife (who takes most of the pictures in the house) does not want a large camera or one with many controls. So we have always struggled with getting good pictures at school events indoors. This camera has solved that problem. She can set it on automatic and take great pictures with indoor lighting. Have also taken some photos under street lights with no flash and was astounded at how well they came out.
