Canon PowerShot G16
The Canon PowerShot G16 is a premium compact camera that is the latest in the G series, a popular choice among experienced photographers seeking a small, versatile camera with familiar manual as well as automatic controls. It replaces the G15, which was introduced last year, and looks almost identical to its predecessor.
What's New: New to the G16 are an all-new, faster DIGIC 6 image processor and built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. Canon is also claiming significant improvements in autofocus speed and accuracy. Astrophotographers may be interested in the new Star Nightscape, Star Trails and Star Time-Lapse Movie capture modes. Also new are a series of artistic filters such as Art Bold and Art Vivid, and handheld HDR Scene mode automatically combines multiple shots of a scene at different exposures, merges them and creates a single image with improved detail from shadow to highlights.
The Canon G16's 12MP sensor, which has an ISO sensitivity range as high as 12,800, and 24-140mm f/1.8-2.8 (35mm equivalent) zoom lens and 3-inch, 922k LCD monitor and optical viewfinder remain unchanged. Canon is now claiming a top burst rate of 9.3fps, down slightly from the G16's 10fps spec. Canon says the camera can capture up to 522 shots at 9.3fps without interruption when using high-speed memory cards. 6-way image stabilization assures shake-free images even in some low-light situations.
DSLR control in a compact camera
As with its predecessors, the Canon G16's control options and layout are strongly influenced by DSLR design, and the camera can be a fine complement to your larger rig. Users can choose all-auto modes or the same P/A/S/M exposure options found on every DSLR. The camera has a hot shoe mount and accepts the entire Canon line of Speedlite flash units. It is also one of a handful of compact cameras with a built-in optical viewfinder that zooms along with the zoom lens.
The Canon G16 captures HD video up to 1080p at 60fps.
