At 42nd Street photo, in New York City, we’re not biased towards any particular kind of camera. While we might recommend a DSLR camera to more serious photographers, point and shoot cameras like the Canon Powershot G10 must be given due credit. While not a digital single lens reflex camera, this next model of the popular Powershot series has stepped up to the plate and is batting with the majors.
Featuring 14.7 Megapixel resolution, and a CCD sensor to match, the Canon Powershot G10 surpasses many DSLR cameras in quality and image pixel-count. It also has a 5x optical zoom (a 44-128mm equivalent to 35mm film), superior face detection via DIGIC 4, and 80-1600 ISO.
Along with its impressive technical specifications comes a vivid 3.o” color LCD screen, and the capability to shoot in high quality RAW format, like many DSLR’s can. The body design is nothing as spectacular as the Sony DSC-T300 we previously mentioned, but it is a good looking camera at a relatively small size (just above compact), and a fairly light weight of 12.3 ounces.
Along with the Canon Powershot G10, like with most point and shoot digital cameras, comes the convenience of auto settings, as well as the ability to shoot in manual settings. It is versatile, convenient, and a good buy for anyone from the casual the professional photographer. Pick up this incredibly affordable digital camera and 42nd Street Photo today, online at 42photo.com or in our New York camera store.
