MOVED TO HERE

Saw Canon's and dpreview's article on the G15. IMHO, I feel they took 1 step forward and 3 back. Nothing here to warrant upgrading my G12. Non-articulated screen, no ISO dial. I am simply not impressed, not at all.

It's worth looking at if you do a lot of portraits indoors w/o flash. f/1.8-2.8 is pretty damn impressive, considering the previous models started at f/2.8 on the wide end and narrowed down to f/4.5 zoomed in.

Not so much a consideration for me since I would just use a dslr with the 50 f/1.4, or even the S95 if I needed a portable solution, which starts out at f/2.

I think it's worth nothing that the fast lens does help differentiate it from the S110. Since now the G15 doesn't have the articulated screen, there wouldn't be any advantage to having it over the S100/S110. You'd just have the same tech in a bigger, clunkier body.

If you have a G12 its probably not worth it IMO but there does seem to be some advantage with the 15. A faster lens is a pretty big plus not to mention the autofocus is supposed to be 53% faster. I can live without the ISO dial, my DSLR does not have one either. If I had the 12 I would think twice but since I have no real point and shoot I would opt for the 15.

Will this be released before the end of Oct? I am going to disney at the end of oct and this would be perfect for my trip.

Tommy, the G12 was announced Sept. 14, 2010. Mine shipped from AMAZON October 3rd, 2010. I did pre-order it. I do not know if that helps.

But you could mount a flash on the G15 not to mention the control dials.

Thanks Gil, I will look into it.

Maybe the G12 price will hold while the G15 drops;)

True, it does have the hotshoe. I have to wonder how much use it gets, though. There are plenty of people with DSLRs without an external flash, I have to imagine the ratio is even worse for the folks who just get a P&S.

As far as the dials, since they axed the ISO dial the only extra dial the G15 has over the S100/S110 is the EV+/- dial. This S series has had dual command dials since its introduction as the S90.

This makes a couple of times, mounting a flash on the G15 has been mentioned. As if you could not on the G12, I got news you can. So I really don't think!, that would encourage me to by a G15.

This is more or less a stripped down version of the G12, with a little faster lens. I repete the G12 is solid, and feels like a real camera; not a tin toy. They should leave the design of the G series to photographers, not marketing men. :(

Dials: The G12 has more, that was before the "market man" removed them.

G12 - $379.00 now at B&H.
G1X - $679.00 same place.

It would over the S100.

What is being stripped down? Besides the swivel screen.

sure its a solid ergonomic feel (although I quite dislike the 'shutter' button), but as far as the G12's response times go... who's kidding who - the G15's claimed (AF) 53% speed increase is Very Welcome!

I already look forward to the G16 if it gets the flippity screen back. 1 yr++ is a long time to hold my breath though... :p

Ok, I've exhausted my dismay for this thing, may as well step to the side and let some potential other folks express some joy over its positive enhancements over the G12...

Signing out - cheers ~

What's this about 10 fps? Is that only in that special auto mode?

Speed Kills; that's what the speed warnings use to say. Well they were right! speed killed the G15, at least as far as I am concerned. I guess I don't appreciate the speed thing, because I never get in a hurry. I never really noticed my G12 being slow but I'll turn it on, and see if I can tell how slow it is. :lol: I really don't care.

I am not part of the hurry up, and why didn't you do it yesterday crowd. I don't take pictures in the dark, and I really like my tripod. I abhor sports, and could care less about burst rates. When I am taking pictures, I certainty am not going anywhere else, so focus time (a few micro seconds more) doesn't worry me. But I really hate when things go missing, and I can't find them; so goes the G15.

Oh yes I don't take pictures of cats, dogs, or kids, unless the aforementioned are asleep.

Thank you, if only others can do the same. If you already have a G12 and dont like the G15 changes/features then just don't buy it.

I am excited for this camera and have placed my pre-order. Can't wait to share some photos from it.

I can see not wanting to upgrade but why is a faster lens with faster autofocus a bad thing and how is this going to kill the G15? This forum seems to attract a lot of people who just want to vent their frustrations if the latest offering is not for them.
