Low Light Quality is Superb 05/31/2014
This review is from: Canon PowerShot G16 8406B001 Approx. 12.1 Megapixels 5X Optical Zoom Digital Camera
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.
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.
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.
