For me, personally, I was looking to update our old Canon SD400 P&S... At times, I didn't want to lug around 'heavier' equipment to family gatherings, vacations spots, and/or event parties... So I began looking at the 'G-series' cameras to replace our SD400... There were a few factors I was considering for the upgrade/update:
- Video capabilities
- Compact size
- Various camera capabilities (face detection, customization settings, etc.)
- Available accessories
Price was also in the mix and I knew I didn't want to go over $500 for a new P&S... So I looked into a few of the new model Canon P&S and decided to go with the G15 because it fit the requirements I wanted... Add the fact that I could use my filter setup (with a 58mm step ring) and I was good to go... I'm relatively new to this camera and I know that I've only touched the surface of what it could do now and the future... I have no regrets whatsoever with this choice and will continue to contribute and share photographic images and/or settings on how the image was captured...
In any event, I hope to post more compositions in the near future and push this camera to its limits on what it can achieve!!!
