I must have missed it before but there is another dial near the top one but further to the back of the camera. Anyone know what it is for?

Checked it out further on DPReview...the rear dial is exposure compensation. So an obvious loss of an iso dial.

I think a lot of folks, including me, would appreciate a real user's experience/results with the new camera...and post some pics please.

thanks,
Dennis

I'm sure there are lots of people waiting to see and hear about the real goods on the G15. Specs and features only say so much... but they have no song until the shutter sings.

In a way the articulated screen defined the G series so it was really sad to see it go away again. Canon no doubt had to meet size, and probably more important price, targets. I bet they did hate having to remove that feature, especially since Nikon now has it on some comparable models. They may not have seen that coming.

Still... a lot of G users I think have moved on to different interchangeable lens cameras, as it seems there is a general up-trend as the average person learns more about photography and the advances really increase what is possible in the non-SLR cameras. So many player right now Canon have to keep the price as low as possible, I suspect they know they will be selling for less quite soon. Amazon and such will almost certainly have some good Christmas deals on the new cameras; not to mention cyber-monday.

As a shooter though you have to love the new lens... flash be gone.

Someone on DPR supplied links to Japanese reviews (needs Translation) with sample images taken with the S110 and G15. The higher ISO shots/low light are not great (surprise, same sensor as G12?), especially at 100% (pixel peeping).

As for no flip screen on the G15, I'm still using my G9, plus my G11. The flip screen is more pleasant to work with, and I really prefer it to the fixed screen. However, my G9 still takes good images with the right lighting. My G11 can give me better higher ISO results, so for now I'm sticking with the two of them.

Here's a shot I took with my G9 while biking around town the other day. I was down on my hands and knees to get it, but it was worth it. The flip LCD would have been easier, but I still like my G9.

I understood that it has a cmos sensor.
Remember when the 20D was released with the first CMOS sensor? Everyone just swore how the 10D took so much better photos. Its all subjective.
Same for when 1D Mark II came out with CMOS sensor.

I looked at a few, it looks pretty good at 800 and 1600. Guess I will find out soon enough.

I could expect some limitations on a point and shoot so the flip out screen is no big deal for me.

Oops, forgot about the change to CMOS sensor.

I'm getting excited by this. Just have to decide between the G15 and EOS M for my purse camera. This seems so versatile but am tempted by a larger sensor. If it had a pull out screen I'd be pre-ordering it.

You might be interested in reading this thread on DPR from a person that just bought the two lens EOS M system;

Thanks, Dennis. Good review. Can't wait for the G15 reviews! If the 22mm prime is as slow as reviews say, the EOS M series isn't worth it yet, even with the benefit of the ability to isolate subjects.

I thought about the M too but it has even less controls, its pretty expensive and I just want something simple in a smaller camera.

Also checking out the Nikon P7700, which lost its viewfinder but gained a nice flip screen. There is definitely some insider secret sharing going on between Canon and Nikon.

Well - from the samples I've seen so far, I was right. The G15 with two more MP's even though a CMOS, has no better high ISO preformance than the G12. And in some of the samples, maybe not even as good.

This is the usual outcome, with a CMOS in smaller sizes. Maybe by the time for the G16, they will have it ironed out.

That is if they replace the swivel hips (Elvis), LCD. :) And put the other controls back they lost, and get rid of the stupid pop-up flash thing.
