What is Canon doing?
Strengths: Regular point and shoot , not like others Canon from G line.
Weakness: Poor lens , only 2.8 , G6 has 2.0 , no RAW format and no flip and twist screen.
Short story , old G6 will cost you olmost $700.00 and new
G7 only $400.00 why? Canon needs you to buy Digital SLR
or stay with poor Point and shoot.

Canon Powershot G7... Camera Envy
Strengths: Wonderful zoom 6X Great LCD screen Face Recognition Great Pictures Battery lasted for 5 day vacation (turned off camera when not using it)
Weakness: No count of pictures left to take without using the LCD No battery strength meter on camera Included 32MB card is a joke No case on the market in the US for this camera...yet
Okay first things first...if you are going to buy this camera you MUST go buy screen protectors. It has an amazing LCD screen and you don't want to scratch it all up. I just found some universal screen protectors and was able to cut them down to fit the screen. Do it, they cost under $8 for a pack of 10. You will need to buy a realistic size memory card. I purchased a 4GB SD card and everything...

Okay first things first...if you are going to buy this camera you MUST go buy screen protectors. It has an amazing LCD screen and you don't want to scratch it all up. I just found some universal screen protectors and was able to cut them down to fit the screen. Do it, they cost under $8 for a pack of 10. You will need to buy a realistic size memory card. I purchased a 4GB SD card and everything works perfectly. Depending on the file size you use I found the 4GB card can hold between 800-2000 images...choose your file type carefully. Another great feature of this camera is the zoom, a surprising 6X. I took this camera to the Kennedy Space Center and was amazed by the zoom. We were told that we stood 3 miles from the shuttle, I was able to zoom in so far to the shuttle I could see a person standing on the stair way. So close the shuttle was unable to fit in the screen window. WOW! This camera retails for $600 and I was unable to find it in any local stores. It is a little heavier then most camera, but it is well built and solid. I recommend buying this camera online from a reputable seller, no tax no shipping. I got mine for $468, great deal.

It is just great
Strengths: More compact design than previous G series.
Weakness: Little bit heavy, and expensive. Battery does not last longer than expected
I totally satisfed with Canon G7, so I think this purchase will be last purchase for a digita camera in my life. Shipping was extremly fast. I got this product in 2days after I place the order.

Powershot G7 Review
Strengths: Good image quality, SDHC support, easy to operate
Weakness: battery life, no RAW format support
As a former Canon DSLR 20D user, this camera is really easy to use and the photo quality is really great compare to other similar product. Before I purchase this camera, I compare this model with Panasonic LX2, the advantage of LX2 is the 16:9 picture mode, but the G7 beat LX2 in picture quality and the way to operate. With 6x optical zoom and manual focus, you can take great shot in a long...

As a former Canon DSLR 20D user, this camera is really easy to use and the photo quality is really great compare to other similar product. Before I purchase this camera, I compare this model with Panasonic LX2, the advantage of LX2 is the 16:9 picture mode, but the G7 beat LX2 in picture quality and the way to operate. With 6x optical zoom and manual focus, you can take great shot in a long distance. The only thing I am not so happy about it is the accessory bag of the G7. In Europe market, you can purchase DCC-600 for G7. In Japan market, you can buy SC DC-50 for G7. But the one for US market is ugly and not good.

Another Great Camera from Canon
Strengths: Great camera, with a perfect look. Small enough to be easy to carry around but big on features. Great pictures and it has a lot of manual settings you can play with. Also the price is not too bad.
Weakness: LCD display does not flip as compared with the previous G6, so that makes it a little more difficult to take pictures of yourself. Also,the 32 MB SD included is useless.
I've bought this camera as a replacement to my old Powershot S2, and so far even if the optical zoom is less, this camera looks more compact and less heavy which makes it perfect to carry around. Would recommend this to amatory photographers as myself.
