Awesome pictures. I am having to go to a smaller system as I had a 5d MkIII and fell and injured my wrist and am having to move to a smaller system, I am looking for a smaller camera that takes good pictures.

I have had mirror less cameras. my current one does not focus on moving subjects well. That's not Good enough. OMD M5 by Olympus

frankly I believe mirror less makes no sense for someone like me. a small dslr body would have meant a real savings for me. and images would have been better

I'll throw in my 2 cents here. I still own a G9 and G11, and a couple of years back preferred the G11 for it's swivel LCD and somewhat better results at higher ISOs. However, I still prefer the G9's zoom range of 35 - 210 mm equivalent. It has been known to not have the best results at higher ISOs, so I've used Noiseware Pro for several years.

I added a Clearviewer (external link)to the G9 to overcome the small OVF, and give me a pseudo-large EVF. I like to work with the G9 much better now. And last week I read this essay that changed my mind on the G9's potentially improved images with less noise, and better results up to ISO 400.

It's shown me I need to go back to "school" to relearn how to best shoot my cameras. I also have been using the G9 for most of my practice shots, and really can see a difference.

So, I would anticipate a G16 with a much improved (?) image sensor and processing engine would give you even more latitude for higher quality results. Add a Clearviewer, and you have a large EVF for composition and control of settings without taking your eye off the EVF (with practice).

I don't plan on replacing my G9 or G11 right now, but if I did, then I would be attracted to either the G16 or the G7 X, and add a Clearviewer.

Absolutely. I've had the G9 since it came out. Jumped on a G16 about three weeks ago. Picked it up primarily for work as I have to visit different facilities and take hundreds of photos for surveys. The G16 performed incredibly well, especially low light. Hardly used the flash at all. I was pretty much set on auto because we were moving so fast and the only thing that didn't really impress me was the AWB under certain conditions. I'm certain I can work with this and quickly change to a proper setting.

The only thing that really ticked me off was this is the first Canon I have purchased that had no manual. I really like having the manual in my bag for quick reference. The manual that came with the G16 is nothing but explanation on the Wi-Fi stuff. Very disappointing.

Nothing much artsy to show. I was in the Poconos last week and saw a show at this jazz club.

Some great photos in here, really comforting!

I just bought a G16 as I wanted something I could carry around with me and something with an optical viewfinder. I'm not "seriously" getting back in to photography again so didn't want to go down the DSLR route again! (I was a Nikon man) I did fancy a rangefinder but since Leica's are way out my budget the Canon was the next obvious choice!

Haven't had time to play around with it yet but so far I adore it! I'll be more inclined to take photos with this than if I had a DSLR, and getting out shooting is the first step!

Just need to buy a spare battery, filter adaptor, CP, and a flash or two (& pocket wizards) and I'm good to go!

I just bought a Canon refurb G15 and like it also. You might not be aware of a source for some of the things you want for your new G16, Lensmate. I've used them over the years for my G9 and G11 cameras.

I would also recommend considering a Canon 270EX II for a small but excellent flash. It can bounce, but not swivel, yet still does an great job at creating that extra lighting you might need.

Here are a couple from Walt Disney World. The equipment shows as a G15. It's actually a G16. As soon as the equipment DB is updated, I'll update this accordingly. Enjoy!

Well i must say , I like how clear and sharp the photo is . Does the focusing work ok under water?. I used a Nikonis 3 for under water shots, many moons ago. I could never afford a G loomis, ha.

Welcome to PotN!

Below is a link to a book that should get you started. The G16 is a powerful camera. You can go fully automatic, or you can go fully manual. The very best thing you should do is take photos with it!

Good luck and have fun!
