Product Details
Description
Reaching new heights in speed, agility and creative possibilities, the PowerShot G15 gives photographers plenty of reasons to be delighted over. The excitement starts with the newly developed 5x Optical Zoom with 28mm Wide-Angle, bright f/1.8 (W) - f/2.8 (T) Lens that performs beautifully across the entire zoom range, even in low light, and can create dramatic soft backgrounds with shallow depth-of-field. Additional great features for the PowerShot G15 include Canon's HS SYSTEM, which combines a High-Sensitivity 12.1 Megapixel CMOS Sensor with the DIGIC 5 Image Processor for ultra-fast performance and phenomenal image quality, a new dual axis electronic level, plus upgraded Video capture in 1080p Full HD with Stereo sound.

Canon PowerShot G15 Review
4.5 Star Review  Imaging Resource - Mar 20, 2013

Canon's PowerShot G-series cameras were some of the first premium compact cameras to really grab the attention of the professional photographer and the amateur shooter alike. With the PowerShot G15, Canon takes a huge step forward by adding a fast 5x optical zoom lens with a maximum aperture that ranges from f/1.8 at wide to f/2.8 at tele. The camera also boasts a 12-megapixel, 1/1.7-inch CMOS sensor to produce sharper images and full 1080p HD video recording (finally). And at the heart of the Canon G15 resides a ton of advanced photographic controls, including a PASM dial and RAW image capture. One big downside, however, is that Canon took away the articulating LCD monitor for a fixed one to slim down the G15's dimensions. This really limits shooting options and fails to take advantage of the camera's great Macro skills (focusing as close as 1cm!). And yet, despite this omission, the G15 is still not quite pocketable. It also would have been nice to include some WiFi connectivity, or even GPS functionality, but clearly Canon focused on the G15's picture-taking skills rather than to try to cram in wireless features. And that's a good thing. We liked the Canon G15's great image quality, advanced photographic controls, as well as its easy-to-use dials and refreshingly minimalist menu system. And we have to admit the camera's slimmer design does give it a better, more responsive feel than its predecessors. So what's our final verdict? Well, you'll have to read our Canon G15 review for our full take on Canon's premium compact digital camera, including gallery shots you can pixel peep, IR lab test results and more.

Canon PowerShot G15 Review
4.5 Star Review  photographyblog.com - Nov 14, 2012

The Canon PowerShot G15 is a serious camera aimed at the advanced amateur or pro looking for a carry-everywhere compact. Building on the success of previous G-series models, for 2012 the G15 principally adds a 12 megapixel CMOS sensor, faster 5x zoom lens, bigger and higher-resolution LCD screen, 10fps burst shooting and full 1080p HD video. £549 / €649 / $499.99 is an awful lot of money for a compact with a small image sensor - read our in-depth Canon PowerShot G15 review to find out if it's worth it.

Just what I needed for travel
5 Star Review   By Mon on Adorama - Aug 20, 2013   

Very useful for travel photography. Its portability and compactness are exceptional. A little pricey but well worth it.

The very best!
5 Star Review   By forensick on Adorama - Aug 6, 2013   

I use this camera professionally when space limitations require a smaller camera. The optics are EXCELLENT! One great feature is the fast speed for burst shots. Well engineered controls and easy to use menu. This is my third camera in the "G" series and it is the best yet.

Good compact camera with SLR features
4 Star Review   By Capt Peggy on Adorama - Jul 23, 2013   

As a professional, I use this camera as a backup in situations where having the big SLR/lens can be an issue. I also use this now as my underwater video camera- the upgrades from the G12 with some of the video and other features gives you a lot more control similiar to an SLR- traveling with this as opposed to another big housing and system makes up for any differences you have. Wish they had kept the articulating LCD screen- only bad decision they made on the upgrade. It still is a compact camera,has limited zoom and wide angle- lag time is still there, but better than before.But, camera does give you most all controls of SLR, so can make your own decisions.

A great camera so far
4 Star Review   By JD on Adorama - Jul 16, 2013   

The only things missing are the flipout LCD screen and a touch screen LCD -- otherwise, as good or better than my past G-series cameras. Great photos, easy to shoot.

Excellent "walking around" camera. I normally use a pair of Canon 5D Mark IIs, but don't want to lug equipment when I'm not working. The G15 is perfect for those moments when I happen upon a photo op. It allows me control and produces great results. It's

As a pro photog I seem to always be working at our family/friend events. The Canon G15 provides great image quality in a small package. The fast f1.8 lens and manual shooting make this a joy to carry around!

Amazing
5 Star Review   By JRod on Adorama - Mar 29, 2013   

There has been a big jump from the G12 to this newly revamped compact. The main specs that blew me away are the low-noise at higher ISO (you can actually use ISO 800/1600 on this one, not really on the G12), the shutter speed is much faster, and of course

Dont Buy Canon
1 Star Review   By john bush on Adorama - Mar 26, 2013   

Don't buy a faulty product. Canon blames the owner for water penetration of camera. The cameras are faulty and suseptable to condensation via temp change that is considered normal.

Outstanding small camera
5 Star Review   By Larry P on Adorama - Mar 26, 2013   

Took this excellent small camera on a two week trip to Vietnam and got great results. I was able to get super shots when others on the trip couldn't. Especially good, handheld, in low light in temples and pagodas and night scenes of Saigon and Halong Bay.

This is the G model I have waited for.
5 Star Review   By coyotebob on Adorama - Feb 5, 2013   

Decided to reduce my gear to a full frame SLR and the G15 following a very satisfactory experience with the Canon S90. The G15 has all the features I use for travel and street photography. It is a great light weight, compact yet capable walk about camera.

Fantastic improvement over G12
