Product description

Product Description

Superfast and connected – the compact for experts

With the control and performance experts demand, the superfast PowerShot G16 features high-speed AF, 9.3fps* shooting, a bright f/1.8-2.8, 5x zoom lens, HS system with DIGIC 6 and Full HD at 60fps.


Bright f/1.8-2.8, 28mm, 5x zoom lens

A bright f/1.8-2.8 Canon lens, which maintains a wide maximum aperture even with full zoom, lets you shoot in very low light and at higher shutter speeds. Flexible 28mm, 5x optical zoom lens and 10x ZoomPlus.

Create sharper photos and movies with Intelligent IS and Enhanced Dynamic IS

You don’t need a steady hand to create stunningly detailed photos and videos. Canon’s Intelligent Image Stabilizer automatically selects the most suitable shake correction from 7 modes, while 5-axis Enhanced Dynamic IS provides powerful image stabilisation when recording videos on the move. Together, they allow you to capture sharp pictures and videos - even when shooting at full zoom or in low light.

Capture less noise and more detail with advanced HS System

Capture the natural atmosphere of the scene, with less noise and clearer details, even in low light conditions. Explore a wider range of shots, like portraits at night or moving subjects indoors, without having to worry about using a flash or stabilising the camera. Canon’s HS System combines a highsensitivity CMOS sensor and a high performance DIGIC image processor to offer increased dynamic range and deliver images and movies packed with atmosphere, even at high ISO sensitivities.

Capture all the action with super fast sustained continuous shooting

Don’t miss a moment of action with DSLR rivalling sustained continuous shooting, which captures still photographs at a blistering speed of up to 9.3 frames per second for up to a minute, when paired with compatible SD cards*. Perfect for shooting fast action and sports, simply hold down the shutter button to start shooting and release the button to stop, and you can capture split second actions in sequence of photographs.

7.5 cm (3.0”) LCD, OVF

Large PureColor II G LCD (922k dots) for superb viewing. An optical viewfinder lets you compose your shots in traditional style with improved stability.

Capture the action with smooth Full HD Movies at 60 frames per second

Large PureColor II G LCD (922k dots) for superb viewing. An optical viewfinder lets you compose your shots in traditional style with improved stability.

Expert Control

Capture more true to life movie footage in 1080/60p Full HD with your digital camera. Canon’s DIGIC 6 processor enables you to shoot fast-paced action at 60 frames per second, giving you smoother and more realistic footage, whilst also offering more options when experimenting with slow motion playback on your PC.

Wi-Fi, GPS via Mobile

Wi-Fi lets you connect easily with home wireless networks, compatible printers and PCs, plus smart devices for easy online sharing and GPS tagging of your images with shooting locations. Image Sync enables convenient PC and online backup via CANON iMAGE GATEWAY or Flickr.

Star Mode

Using the increased processing power of DIGIC 6, Star Mode lets you capture stunning starry nightscapes with ease. Three shooting modes are available: Star Nightscape shoots landscapes against starry skies; Star Trails captures the movement of the stars by combining multiple images into a single composite image; while Star Time-Lapse Movie combines still images, taken at set time intervals over a long period, to create stunning movies.

Background Defocus

Background Defocus is a creative filter that mimics the background blur of images taken by an SLR with a wide aperture lens. It takes two consecutive shots, one in focus and one out of focus and combines them into a composite image with beautiful background blur. You can select from three different levels of background blur to achieve stunning portraits and close up shots with the exact blurring effect you want.

Handheld HDR

HDR Mode let you capture the dark shadows and bright highlights of a high contrast scene. Thanks to the speed of DIGIC 6, you can achieve HDR without using a tripod or fixing the camera on a steady surface. It captures a fast continuous sequence of shots, and then combines the data into a single file with the least possible blur and best possible exposure for images closer to how you saw them. You can also choose from 5 finishing effects: Natural, Art Bold, Art Standard, Art Vivid and Art Embossed.

Optional Accessories

Accessories include a 58mm Lens Filter Adapter, Canon Speedlite flashes and 40m Waterproof Case.

*Sustained continuous shooting – Continuous shooting speed and total number of frames captured varies dependent on camera model, shooting mode and subject. A compatible SDHC/ SDXC UHS speed class 1 memory card is required.
