Canon G15- Preview

Canon G15- Preview
I've had less than a half a day with the new Canon G15, but it's been a very pleasurable experience. Right out of the box and in the hand I knew this camera was the G series camera I've been waiting for from Canon. No it doesn't have everything I'd prefer, but its likely to be the best one yet. I know this line of camera well, I've owned, reviewed, or evaluated every G series camera since the G6. Therefore I'm intimate to what the G15 has in common with its predecessors already.

That said, I think it would be a grave mistake for anyone to dismiss the G15 for any reason- whether it be other cameras in its class that seem more attractive, the lack of a tilting screen, a sensor smaller than some competitors, or whatever. The G15 is in essence a totally revamped G10 in many respects. I know many shooters who still swear by the G10, but I think the new G15 is the camera upgrade G10 users want the most. Some prefer a fixed screen, and there are advantages to such despite what may be popular to think.

I have a lot more to talk about on the G15, and a full review is definitely coming. As a reviewer I often have several cameras from many manufacturers at once. I'll be honest and say that whatever camera stands out the most, or, that I like the most at the time, is often the camera I'll choose to prioritize with what little time I have to write. I'm a father, husband, and I have a full time career to boot. So I have to choose my time wisely when I write.

As soon as I put the G15 in my hand, I smiled. It's balance, excellent textured finish, like a rock build quality instantly made a stunning impression. When I turned the G15 on and focused in a dark room, my smile almost made my cheeks hurt. This is one responsive G series camera. The pictures (press images) of the G15 simply do not do it any justice. Holding it, is what its all about.

Now I have a lot of testing to do, but what I saw so far, and mixed with experience and in depth knowledge of other G series cameras (including the G1X), I think I'll be inclined to say that the G15 will be my favorite of any G camera from Canon so far. My final decision will come in the G15 Review- so please be patient.

For now- I'm off to have a blast with the new G15 and push its imaging capabilities outside of the envelope.

Yeah the G5 is capable of things smaller sensors have not been capable of before, they just keep on improving.
