Canon Premium Compacts Coming


Now what I see today is Canon running on the same path of  Leica and Hassy, according to Japanese e-newspaper Canon will soon announce Premium compact camera with customized colors name and message etc etc .., requested by the purchaser. Take a look at the details below

PowerShot S120 PREMIUM BOX
Price: ¥54,980 | $560
Only 3,000 units available

Price: ¥69,980 | $700
Only 1,000 units available

Canon will start taking advance orders from October 30, 2013 via the Canon eStore, as you can see the pricing in high compared to the regular price of the compacts (check Canon G16 and Canon S120 price at amazon)


Canon G16 vs RX100 M2


Canon G16 vs RX100 M2, Sony RX100M2 comes with ultra-compact body size and bigger 20.2MP 1″ Exmor R BSI CMOS Sensor without low-pass filter  on the other hand Canon G16 is bit bigger in size but features 12.1 Megapixel 1/1.7″ (smaller) sensor, take a look at the major difference below…


Its no doubt that the bigger sensor  of Sony RX100 M2 will produce better image compared to Canon G16
+ You also get a ultra compact size and WiFi with NFC technology that enables remote shooting and video recording. (via smartphones and tablets)

On the other hand G16 offers you 2.4X more optical zoom, better macro mode and bit faster continuous shooting speed.
Canon G16 also features built in WiFi but no NFC.

Price difference: Canon G16 will cost you approx $200 less than Sony RX100 M2 camera.

Verdict: If you want better image quality + compact size, we highly recommend you to buy Sony RX100 M2 Camera. If you want a affordable pro-compact camera with bit more zoom and better macro mode –  you can buy Canon G16.

Nikon P7800 vs Canon G16

Nikon P7800 vs Canon G16 comparison, the newly announced G16 features new processor and noticeable  improvement in overall performance, on the other hand Nikon P7800 comes with same sensor and image processor as its predecessor.


Without any doubt I can clearly see Canon G16 is better, Nikon done nothing new with new P7800 model, they just added a EVF to P7700.

Canon not only gives you bright aperture lens, you also get more ISO range + better Hybrid Image Stabilization, the another big change in G16 model is introduction of new DIGIC 6 image processor, so you get approx 50% faster AF speed compared to Canon G15, improved fast continuous shooting speed, better video quality and less shutter lag.

(be +ve always, in any situation) The only good thing I see in Nikon is +3X optical zoom compared to G16, + more AF point.

Nikon features 99 AF point and Canon G16 have 9 only, So P7800 have better AF system compared to G16 ? the answer is BIG NO….since both camera features contrast detect system, the AF speed is depends upon the image processor.

Verdict:  We highly recommend you to buy Canon G16 camera, you have no reason to buy Nikon P7800.

Canon G16 vs Canon G15

Canon G16 vs Canon G15, take a look at the major specification comparison review to find out the major difference between these two camera.
Canon-G16-vs-G15-ImageThe Single Major difference between these two model is new image processor, due to high speed processing we get 50% fast AF speed compared to G15, less shutter lag,  maximum continuous shooting speed of 9.3 FPS at full-resolution for over 500 shots as well as a High Speed AF system for maintained sharpness in a variety of shooting conditions.


Other new feature include Built-in WiFi for wireless image transfer, + Canon smartphone app available for iOS and Android devices, enables efficient transferring control and also permits GPS tagging to images.

Better Video Quality: Canon G16 offers Full HD @ 60fps, G15 was limited to 24fps only at Full HD mode.

Verdict: Canon G16 is a powerful camera with advance image processor , Fast AF speed, better video mode. Highly Recommended by New Camera.

For G15 users: If you are waiting to see a major improvement in image quality, G16 is not for you, We recommend you to wait for Canon G17 or buy Sony RX100M2

PowerShot G16 Digital Camera

The PowerShot G16 digital camera builds upon the success of the PowerShot G15 by utilizing some of Canon’s most innovative technologies. The first PowerShot in the G-series to come equipped with built-in Wi-Fi® technology, the G16 has the ability to share images and video to social networking sites such as Facebook®, Twitter®, YouTube®, and Flickr® or via email through the use of CANON iMAGE GATEWAY. Users can also upload images from almost anywhere via their compatible iOS® or Android device with the download of the free Canon CameraWindow app.

The PowerShot G16 features a 28-140mm wide-angle lens with an aperture range of f/1.8 – f/2.8, which helps while shooting in low-light conditions or for users who want to create a dramatic shallow depth-of-field with soft backgrounds. The G16 is equipped with Canon’s HS System, which combines a DIGIC 6 image processor and a 12.1-megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS image sensor, allowing for enhanced low-light image quality.

With improved AF times and reduced shooting lag over previous G-series models, the advancements to Canon’s AF system help ensure users never miss a shot. Continuous shooting speeds of up to 9.3 frames-per-second are possible with the PowerShot G16, allowing users to capture images in full resolution as they happen***. The G16 also captures 1080p/60p Full HD video, and includes a built-in stereo microphone and an HDMI output so users have the ability to view videos on their HDTV.

The PowerShot G16 also features new shooting modes to capture breathtaking images day or night. The new Star mode gives users the ability to capture the brilliance and wonder of the night sky through the use of three scene modes. “Star Nightscape” lets users shoot the radiance of stars in a landscape image, while the “Star Trails” mode captures trails of stars to turn them into a luminous still image. “Star Time Lapse Movie” captures continuous still images of the stars and then combines each to create a stunning video replicating the motion of the stars in the night sky.

In addition, the camera’s creative handheld HDR Scene mode automatically combines multiple shots of a scene to help create an image with a greater dynamic range without the necessity for a tripod. HDR Scene mode includes Natural, Art Bold, Art Embossed, Art Standard and Art Vivid options.

For photographers who want the convenience and ease-of-use of a compact camera with the feel of a DSLR, the PowerShot G16 features dials and controls similar to those on Canon’s EOS Digital SLR cameras. It is also compatible with Canon Speedlite flashes and select accessories.

The PowerShot G16 is scheduled to be available in October 2013 for an estimated retail price of $549.99.
