Putting the control and performance at your fingertips, the Canon PowerShot G16 High Performance Compact Digital Camera offers the speed and power that professional photographers demand and everyday photographers need.
The Canon G16 camera is equipped with a high-sensitivity 12.1 megapixel Canon CMOS sensor (1/1.7 type) and a superior DIGIC 6 processor. This powerful combination produces high-clarity images with reduced noise whatever the situation, even in low light.
With a bright f/1.8-2.8 lens you can shoot in low light with higher shutter speeds, even when zoomed. The 28 mm wide-angle lens with 5x optical zoom allows you to get closer to the subject and capture in a broader frame.
A 3-stop optical image stabilisation system with intelligent IS chooses the optimum setting to counteract camera shake and blur, consistently producing sharp and detailed photos. Enhanced Dynamic IS effectively compensates for the photographer's movement over 5 axes for sure, steady results.
