I got this camera as a wedding gift and used it a few times now. Used it on my honeymoon and the pictures turned out great. For someone like me who is a klutz and don't know how to use cameras, reading the manual would be helpful. (read more)

This digital camera is unreal. Before buying it I compared spec's and sample outputs from various digital cameras (Nikon Coolpix 990, Casio QV 3000 etc) on www.imaging-resource.com before plumping for the Canon and have not been disappointed for a second. I bought the 1GB IBM microdrive as to use the camera effectively you need a significant amount of storage and there were several reports of problems with the 340Gb microdrive.
I've just returned from a 2 week holiday in Crete with 450 high... (read more)

ACQUIRED IN JANUARY, HAVE TAKEN IT ABROAD NUMBER OF TIMES, ON EACH OCCASION THE RESULTS HAVE REACHED BEYOND SATSISFACTION. THE STANDARD 16MEG MEMORY MAY NOT BE ENOUGH, BUT NOWADAYS IT CAN BE CHEAPLY UPGRADED. WE ACHEVED BEST RESULTS BY USING LITTLE OR NO COMPRESSION. (read more)

The Canon Powershot G1 is a superb "compact" zoom type digital camera (with SLR controls)! Well done Canon! everything that a novice or amateur photographer would want, although the additional 'F' stops of 11 and 16 would be useful for that touch more creative ability..
I love the camera to bits, and although want the D30, would never part with it in the near foreseeable future as this would make a good "compact convenience camera" or stand in if the D30 went pear shaped - good thing is -... (read more)

My initial impression of the Powershot G1 was, ehh that is not as pretty as it looks in the brochure. This Canon is certainly a functional camera in the same way as an old style Russian apartment block is functional. Having said that I've had the camera for a while now and it is an absolute dream. As an old SLR user ( purist you might call me - I've only worked with manual type camera's ) I've adapted to the camera very quickly. The manual control is excellent, the focus can be a bit...

Extra high resolution on this camera means you can enlarge without loosing the photo quality.
Also shoots 30 seconds of movie including sound but of course, this does not compare with a decent camcorder. If it's movies you are after then get a camcorder.
This is the choice for the serious amateur who wants the flexibility of departing from the program modes to use shutter priority, aperture priority and manual. Its a great choice as it has the capability to keep rewarding you as you become... (read more)
