Care Plan
from £3.00 per month


Care Plan for Digital Cameras

A Care Plan protects your digital camera if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap.

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month

Product details

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.

Expert photography

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.

Intelligent IS

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.

Wi-Fi, GPS via Mobile

WiFi enables you can connect to a wireless home network and other compatible devices, making it easier to share your photos with the world. What's more, the GPS via smartphone function means you can tag location information to each image. There's also an Image Sync feature for backing-up your photos through CANON iMAGE GATEWAY or Flickr.

Keep in control

View and frame images in great colour and contrast on the 3” PureColor II G high resolution LCD display. The optical viewfinder means you can shoot your compositions in traditional style.

Take full manual control over your photograph thanks to refined ergonomics and a customisable menu. The front dial is placed at your fingertips for intuitive and creative shooting. Select from various settings to achieve the perfect photo, a dual axis electronic level display allows you to snap images with a perfectly level horizon.

More from your photography

Enjoy professional grade manual focus controls in your shots, the MF peaking highlights the edge of in-focus areas so you can select the best points of focus.

Shoot professional-like portraits and close-ups with the Background Defocus mode. Bring more prominence to the subject with blurred background effects.

Creative shooting is endless: Star mode is optimised to capture stunning shots of starry nightscapes - you can select from Star Nightscape, Star Trails or Star Time-Lapse Movie.

The handheld HDR mode shoots engaging and dynamic images of high contrast scenes in more detail, allowing you to get more creative and add depth to images with five artistic effects.

Capture split-second moments in full resolution at 9.3 frames per second – this ultra-responsive performance means fast sporting moments and momentary wildlife photo opportunities are never out of reach.

Movie moments

Record smooth, sharp and highly expert movies at 60 fps with high quality stereo sound. Full HD movie recording can also be used with the advanced features Fine Detail Movie Processing (60p), Focus Peaking, in-camera Movie Transcoding and wind cut filter.
