Canon PowerShot G16 was made for those of you who don’t like to change some lens when using a camera, but still want the freedom of setting. The Canon PowerShot G16 replaces the Canon G15 which has begun to ‘aging’. One significant update of the Canon PowerShot G16 is the presence of DIGIC 6 Image Processor.
This offer is certainly very tempting, considering the Canon G15 is only equipped with the DIGIC 4 Image Processor. Of course the DIGIC 6 has plenty of improvement compared to the DIGIC 4, such as the improved of low light performance at ISO up to ISO 6400.
In addition, the processor allows the Auto Focus speed and reduce the lag when return to standby after successfully shooting objects. It also enables increased performance of recording video images up to 14fps.
Despite having a screen and the same layout button as the Canon PowerShot G15, but the rear control panel of PowerShot G16 has experienced a slight increase. Shortcut keys are now under the Video button, making instant access simply by pressing with your thumb and also shooting with just one hand.
Additionally Canon has also developed a button to control ISO sensitivity and it is separated from the control of manual focus and Macro. Unfortunately, there is no print button on the Canon PowerShot G16.
