This camera is awesome!

AdvantagesBattery life, versatility, quality of photographs, ease of use

DisadvantagesSize, and size of initial flash card.

"This camera has converted me to digital photography. It is brilliant in so many ways. The battery life is brilliant, although it would be good if you could buy back up AA batteries in case the big one went flat although this has only happened to me once in about two years of using it. The quality of photographs are very impressive and I have printed photographs out at my local photo printers and they have been of an incredible standard, much ..." Read review

Wow the Canon G3 Rocks!

AdvantagesGreat pictures, easy to use for newbies, versatile

DisadvantagesLens barrel partialy blocks viewfinder

"...colours and together with my Canon i965 produces wonderful prints that people would have great difficulty telling apart from a picture taken using an expensive SLR. The accessories I'd recommend to any owner are the Canon lens adaptor (to use a UV filter for protection and a lens cap or a wide/tele lens) and an extra battery, both can be bought for about £15 each. Some more memory wouldn't be a bad idea too, 512MB Compact Flash card is around £80 ..." Read review

Great digital camera

AdvantagesClear photo's and automated so easy for a beginner

DisadvantagesMine came without a carry bag, so I had to buy separately

"This is now an updadted op. The camera has been used extensively and so i can tell you some more about it. I can also rectify some of my ciao opinion writing errors by adding in prices etc. Because this was one of my first ops I wasn't sure of what to put but I guess I have learned my lessons. I have never owned a digital camera before, but with the prices coming down I decided to take the plunge. I am not a professional but I do like to snap ..." Read review

Product Information for "Canon PowerShot G3" »

Manufacturer's product description

The quality of a digital image depends on a variety of factors, factors that Canon engineers have given extraordinary attention in the PowerShot G3. The PowerShot G3 owes its brilliantly detailed images to a high-resolution, 1/1.8 " 4.0 megapixel CCD for a postcard-sized image with no visible pixellation. On-chip primary color filters provide vivid and realistic color without the noisiness associated with other primary color filters. The image processor, DIGIC, improves the signal processing algorithm, resulting in improved picture quality, more accurate auto focus, and faster image processing speed. The lens of the PowerShot G3 is a 4x zoom lens that moves from wide-angle to extreme close-up with the touch of a finger. It also has a bright and large f/2.0 to 3.0 aperture so you can shoot in low light without a flash. In addition, the G3 has a digital zoom of 3.6x, so that the maximum zoom capability of the camera is approximately 14 times, reaching a maximum focal length of 490 mm equivalent to a 35mm camera. The zoom process can be moved in six steps from wide-angle to extreme telephoto using the electronic dial on top of the camera. The electronic dial, with its independent mode dial and lever, replaces the functions of the previous two-stage main dial/mode dial. The control layout is more functional and simpler to use. The display panel at the top of the large, 1.8 " LCD monitor has been redesigned for a clear layout of icons. Larger fonts make the menus easier to read. A single touch resets all user settings to default conditions.
