Please read below for some great information about this spectacular digital mirrorless camera.

16.3MP Live MOS Sensor and TruePic VII Image Processor
The 16.3 megapixel Live MOS sensor and TruePic VII image processor work in concert to enable high resolution still imagery, full HD video recording, and notable low-light quality sensitivity to ISO 25600. The combination of these two technologies also helps to promote high-speed performance throughout the camera system, including a top shutter speed of 1/8000 sec. with a mechanical shutter, a continuous shooting rate up to 10 fps with Tracking AF, and continuous 6 fps shooting with continuous autofocus.

Additionally, full HD 1080p movie recording is supported at 30 fps with stereo sound in either the MOV or AVI format. A Direct HD Movie Button is available for instant access to movie recording and a range of Art Filters and effects can be applied while recording for more creative control. An external microphone jack is also available to enhance the quality of sound during recordings.
FAST Dual Phase- and Contrast-Detection AF
The sensor also affords dual-mode auto focusing that utilizes both contrast- and on-sensor phase-detection methods to quickly and accurately acquire focus. The contrast-detection system employs 81 areas while the phase-detection method uses 37 areas and, when combined, make the FAST (Frequency Acceleration Sensor Technology) focusing system that is able to reap the benefits from both technologies to produce all-around focusing that is equally fast as it is precise. Four different AF area sizes can be used, too, with the smallest, Super Spot AF, enabling pin-point precision that is well-suited to macro and close-up imagery. Selectable 3 x 3 groups within the 81 areas in contrast-detection can also be paired according to the subject type being photographed and a 0.044 second focus lag time ensures quick focusing for moving subjects.
5-Axis Image Stabilization
In-body image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake with any lens in use and compensates for camera movements up to the equivalent of five shutter speed steps. Furthermore, this unique image stabilization system works across five axes, versus the conventional two axes, and compensates for vertical angle rotation, horizontal angle rotation, horizontal shift, vertical shift, and rolling camera shake movements. This range of detected movements serves to benefit traditional still image shooting as well as movie recording and working with moving subjects more effectively. Furthering the effectiveness of the 5-Axis IS, IS-Auto mode is available to detect both vertical and horizontal panning to automatically deactivate image stabilization along the detected panning axis to enable greater stability when tracking moving subjects.
Interactive EVF and 3.0" Tilting Touchscreen
For eye-level viewing, a bright 2,360k-dot electronic viewfinder is integrated into the design and features a smart eye detect function, 29ms image display lag time, and 1.48x magnification. This finder enables realistic, high resolution viewing in a comfortable position that is especially beneficial when working in bright conditions. The viewfinder also allows for real-time visualization of different camera settings, including aspect ratio, highlight and shadow, and magnification. The adaptive brightness settings also enable easier viewing in different lighting conditions, with the brightness being set according to surrounding conditions to better simulate the use of an optical viewfinder.
And now, I present to you, high quality photos taken in New York City:

The Power & Innovative Canon Powershot G16 Blog Review


The Canon Power Shot G16 is a compact, advanced point-and-shoot camera featuring a 12.1 megapixel 1/1.7" high-sensitivity CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6 image processor to produce high quality still imagery and full HD 1080p video with notable low-light quality and sensitivity to ISO 12800. The sensor and processor work together to form the Canon HS SYSTEM, which helps to improve the image quality of dimly-lit shots by reducing noise and enhancing the overall clarity. Additionally, the processor offers a range of speed-related assets throughout the camera, including a maximum sustained full-resolution continuous shooting rate of 9.3 fps for over 500 shots as well as a High Speed AF system for maintained sharpness in a variety of shooting conditions.

Let’s have a look at the POWERSHOT G16
  • Canon does claim better high ISO performances and this is partially because they are now using a new back-illuminated technology. So, with the combination of this sensor and the new processor, it should not surprise anyone that the high ISO performance will be better then previous models.
  • The lens are 28-140mm (5x magnification) and features minimum focus distance when used under macro mode (1cm). Aperture is  f/1.8-2.8 which is great for such a compact camera. 
  • LCD screen – 3-inch 922k dots touch screen variety. Fixed into the body of the camera.
  • Viewfinder – The G16  uses an optical viewfinder. Perfect for when using this camera outdoors.
  • Maximum shutter speed progresses to 1/4000s.
  • Movie mode has improved and is now capable of recording MP4 format. It is now capable of 1080p/60 mode. Time-lapse recording is now possible as well. great improvement on this part of the camera.
  • Size – The G16 weighs a whopping 4g more than the G15! Dimension-wise, the G16 is 2mm wider and identical in other dimensions. For all purposes you could say the two are identical in the size category but don't be fool by at its size.
We managed to put the G16 to the test as we walked around New York City to bring you real life samples of the powerful Canon Powershot G16. Please see below for samples and enjoy it!
