Product Description

I have worked with G7 and G9 before and wanted to buy G9 for myself when I heard of this new one, G10.
The metal body of the camera makes it powerful enough to bring to the nature. We all know what happens for cameras while in a program!
The quality and services that this camera supports is far more than an amateur might need and probably enogh for most of the experts.
I haven't been working with it for moer than two months now but by now I am happy of deciding to buy this!

And seriously considered the G10 when I was moving up from my G5. The features are similar but the price of the G9 was significantly lower. The dpreview site is a great resource for reviews and side-by-side comparisions of any two cameras. See this link for a comparison of the G9 and G10 .

Voted 5/5

The G10 is great little camera. Its a bit short on the tele end but the 28mm wide is super. So far I have had no problems with it. I hope to take some great pics with it.

June-9-2010 update
I have now had my G10 for well over a year. It's a keeper. Yes it has some grain at high ISO but I remember when film was grainy at high ISO. Who cares, did you get a usable photo. Most of the time the camera is set at ISO 80, great photos. Very happy with the results. Have been playing with the 16:9 and B/W features lately. My only complaint is it way to short on the telephoto end for wildlife photos but I knew that when I bought it. I like the solid metal construction of the camera. I should get many more years of use from it.( Who keeps a digital for more than year) If you need a great solid camera pick one up.

Last G10 update
I sold it. I started having hot pixel problems, I think perhaps 14 mp is to many for such a small sensor. The newer G11 and G12 have a 10 mp sensor and might be a better option for a small easy carry camera. I did like and enjoy the G10 while I had it. For my new camera, I went the DSLR way.
