Canon G16 just arrived. I assumed the basic package would incl. everything needed to start using but seems no memory card. Do I need to buy one first? 9 days ago
Hello, the G16 does not have a memory card included in the box as a lot of people will want the use a card that performs to their own requirements. As memory is relatively cheepp these days I would recommend at least 16 gig memory card although most people I know with a G16 use 64 gig (including myself) as this seems to have ample space to continue another day of taking pictures if you don't have opportunity to download the previous days pictures. Regardless of the amount of memory I would seriously recommend that the most important feature is the speed that the memory card can be written to as if not adequate some of the cameras functions will not work to the full capacity (e.g. taking a burst of shots). Amazon has several offerings that are aimed at the photographer. It is worth in the long run to use fast, high quality memory.
I just purchased the G16 and am wondering whether it comes with the lithium battery? Thanks 13 Nov 2013
Hello Stephanie. The Canon G16 comes with a Li-ion 920mAh battery in the box. It is externally charged in the unit provided. feel free to ask any more questions and I will try to help. Regards....Add.
It's made in Japan. Box contents are listed in product details: Digital Camera PowerShot G16, Neck Strap NS-DC11, Battery Pack NB-10L, Battery Charger CB-2LCE, AC Cable, User Manual Kit
Hi Alan, IMy G16 is the latest in the G series which I've purchased- G9, G12, G15 and G16. I think the G 16 is excellent. Easy to use, very good photos which are easy to download to computer, good in poor light. Many options for photos. Would certainly recommend. However, note that with both G12 and G15, the lens locked in the extended position rendering them useless. Amazon replaced the G15 (less than 1 year old) with G 16 without question, G12 was out of warranty. For both cameras, I found Canon most unhelpful. Recommend you take out an extended warranty with G 16 just in case. However to repeat, I believe the G 16 camera is superb and excellent value for money. PS- the G9 is still going strong
Does the G16 have an interval time lapse facility (intervalometer), and if so what time intervals are available? 7 Nov 2014
Hi, I don't think so. I sent mine back but remember it being able to do that. Sorry not much help.
does the camera come with a user manual 3 Nov 2014
The 'Canon Powershot G16 Camera User Guide' does NOT come with the camera. Only a 'Getting Started' guide comes in the box. The CUG has to be downloaded from Canon. It is in the form of a 212 page, landscape PDF that is designed to be used on a computer rather than printed out. You don't have to actually own a G16 to download the CUG. Not sure whether this Amazon page allows URLs, but here goes: http://www.canon.co.uk/Support/Consumer_Products/products/cameras/Digital_Compact/Powershot_G_series/PowerShot_G16.aspx?type=manuals. Hope this helps.
Can the screen on the G16 be swivelled to different positions - as can be done on the Canon G12? Thank you. Andy 3 Sep 2014
Hello Andy. No, it is a fixed screen. An excellent camera nevertheless.
