We've posted 189 test shots to the Canon PowerShot G10 digital camera preview, including a selection of RAW images for those who will use the Canon G10 for fine photography. The Canon G10's 28-140mm f/2.8 lens seems well paired with the 14.7-megapixel 1/1.7" CCD sensor.
According to the Lab guys, there are quite a few improvements to the Canon G10 worthy of note. The viewfinder, for starters is bigger and more useful. The screen's resolution is improved as well, and the buttons are easier to operate, since most of them have been raised for easier access. The Canon G10's new EV dial is also popular, making our EV-intensive shots easier to execute, thanks to the clear visual cue. Even the grip is better, according to both Rob and Luke. In short, "There are no steps backward."
Noise is still an issue even at ISO 80, but it seems to be mostly luminance noise, and it's fine-grained enough that only pixel-peepers will notice; RAW shooters will be able to process that out for the most part.
Stay tuned for our full Canon G10 image analysis coming soon. For now, though, go to the preview and click on the Samples Tab to scroll through our huge suite of Canon G10 test shots!
