5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Digital Compact, 25 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Canon PowerShot G10 14.7MP Digital Camera - 5x Optical Zoom, 3 inch PureColor LCD II Viewfinder - Black (Electronics)
I purchased the G10 as a replacement for my G9. The G10 is a definite improvement on its predecessor - the wider zoom more than compensates for a slightly shorter telephoto and the image quality especially at lower ASA settings is superb. The images become noisier at higher ASA settings, but who really cares - the kind of situations where you require such settings are unlikely to be those where a little noise matters. The 3 inch screen is quite simply superb - easily the best I have come across and an improvement on the previous model. I've compared it to so-called super zooms - they are bulky, have poorer image quality and lens speed and who really needs a 12 - 18x zoom anyway. The immediate competition is the Panasonic LX3 - I found the 24 mm - 50mm range too restrictive. The 15MP resolution is also useful, allowing tight cropping while still producing high quality A4 size prints. And finally - this is a really robust camera - it feels solid and substantial; the extra weight over some competitors isn't a problem and in fact makes it easier to grip. Couldn't recommend more

The LX3 has a 24-60mm zoom range ( 35mm equivalent ), not 24-50mm. the reason I sold mine was not that the range was restrictive; you'd probably only want one if you were into wide angle landscapes and street photography, but because it was incapable of accurately reproducing the colour 'red', a fact most reviewers seem to have overlooked! You give away your age,Leo, these days ASA has become 'ISO'! I too find the G10 improved from the G9 and otherwise found your review helpful!

That also made me smile - when did we stop calling it ASA?

Grazie Leo.
