The Canon G15 premium compact digital camera steps up its game over its predecessor, the G12, in many ways. The most notable is the 5x optical zoom (28-140mm equivalent) lens that's very fast for a camera of this type, ranging from f/1.8 at wide to...

At an MRP of Rs 34,995, the PowerShot G15 may come across as being highly over-priced to you, but we don't feel so. You get performance close to that of an entry-level DSLR in a pocketable form. In fact, the optics of the G15 is far better than the...

The Canon PowerShot G15 is an advanced point and shoot camera that is just full of surprises. Despite a small sensor, it manages to squeeze out every bit of performance from a tiny, non-BSI sensor. It packs a wallop of features and really steps up the...

A good way to think of of Canon's PowerShot G15 is like an EOS digital SLR without a lens mount. It sports a similar rock-solid build – here aluminium – and control layout to an EOS camera, but is of course more compact. Canon claims the G15 17% smaller...

The first thing you may notice is that the G15 has a lot of external controls for a compact system camera. This could be intimidating to a novice but greatly useful to a more experienced photographer.It’s the latter for whom I believe this camera is...

Although the PowerShot G15 is a good camera, reluctantly we're getting off the small-chip G-series merry-go-round – especially at its list price of $499. We've endorsed them for many years but times have changed. Although this is a solid,...

Canon's PowerShot G15 is an upgrade to the PowerShot G12, keeping in the same price range for anyone that does not want to upgrade to the much more expensive PowerShot G1X. With almost a complete overhaul to the inside of the camera, the G15 sports a...

Don’t know about you, but I shudder when I read that a camera company has described a lens or a camera as being ‘bright’.I presume they mean that the lens involved is what used to be described as ‘fast’ … you know, with a maximum aperture of f1.5 or...
