5 POW­ERSHOT G15

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Gadgets -

Canon, $555, canon.com.au ★★★ Canon’s Pow­erShot G range is pitched at DSLR users who want a pocket-sized cam­era with some man­ual con­trols. The G15 is a 12.1-megapixel shooter with a top ISO of 12,800 and a f1.8 zoom lens that can reach from 28 to 140mm. It feels solid, has a sharp three-inch screen and sits in your hands nicely. It has an un­usual, but func­tional de­sign of over­lap di­als across the top, with the up­per dial con­trol­ling shoot­ing mode and the lower for ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion. You can choose to save your im­ages in RAW and there is a tiny op­ti­cal viewfinder. It lacks the ar­tic­u­lated screen or wi-fi con­nec­tiv­ity that you find in sim­i­larly priced cam­eras, but it will ap­peal to those who want bright lenses and sim­ple de­signs.
