thank you everyone for the help. ?
Hi Dieter H,
my name is Ted, and I am a Pro photographer in California. I bought a Canon power shot G 16 to use as a go to backup camera that is small enough to carry in a bag but has a lot of big options and features. I also bought the 272 tilt/head. It is an excellent choice for this camera. I also put on the front the Canon lens barrel extension with a thread on filter. This is an incredible small camera, it has almost as much features as my 5D Mark three. It's an excellent camera for lowlight photography. Video in this camera is very good also. The camera has a number of special features built right into it that most cameras don't have. Can't say enough about the small camera, have recommended to a lot of my photography buddies. Hope this answers your question. Good shooting.
