5.0 out of 5 stars Superb., 13 Jan 2014
This review is from: Canon Powershot G16 ( 12.1 MP,5 x Optical Zoom,3 -inch LCD ) (Camera)
If you're reading this review the chances are that like I did before you, you are agonising over the choice of which camera to buy.

Personally, I was only interested in the Canon range and it was between the G1X, this and the G15.

In the end, I plumped for the Canon Powershot G16 to sit alongside my entry level DSLR. The main reason being that I have children who are forever on the move and I wanted a camera I could have on me all the time to quickly pull out and get a shot of my children at play.

I also wanted the ability to shoot Macro hassle-free when I was out and about and the G16 ticked this box as well.

The WIFI connection is really handy if you have a smartphone. Download an app to your phone, connect the camera to your wifi and simply choose which image you want to send to your phone/ipad. Doddle. I don't think the G15 has the wifi capability....

It's also a nice weight and a quality build. Like another reviewer has said, it would have been nice to have a flip out screen, but this is a minor quibble and in no way affects the camera's performance.

I've only used it for a few days, but I am absolutely delighted with my purchase. The image quality is superb and there's still plenty of tinkering that can be done with the camera to keep enthusiastic amateurs like myself amused! There is a shed-load of features included, but I will leave comment on that to the professional reviewers elsewhere.

In short, deliberate no longer and treat yourself to a G16 now! Go on, you've earned it.
