Canon PowerShot G15

I’m not sure where the G13 and G14 went, but they will definately be missed. Here’s an image of the imminent G12 replacement. 


It’s pretty closely specced to the G12. Add DIGIC V and a faster lens, the f/1.8 looks good. The flash is now a popup as well. Here’s hoping the viewfinder is a bit better.

F/1.8-2.8 sounds like a huge upgrade to me.
5DIII 8-200mm minus 35mm in there.

I like that lens.

Hope we'll see something with an f/2.8 max aperture on the next camera with a G1X size sensor as well...

Both G13 ang G14 will not never see the day light. "13" is an unlucky number for the westerner. While "14" sounds like "sure death" in Chinese.

I wonder what the price point will be? I hope it's not like what happen to the G1x. It was waaay to expensive when it was came out.

Oh, that is very nice!  The G12 was f/2.8-4.5.

It looks like the exposure compensation and ISO dials are gone.  That's not good.

But, the D600 is like a bazillion dollars more, and, like NIKON.

Cue the guy from that 80's song from old SoHo.

What's the CR level: 1, 2 or 3? Also, does anybody have any (good) idea when Canon is going to announce something?

That lens will probably be enough to tip me into my first G Canon since my somewhat disappointing G3 earlier this century.

nice lens.  they should also make the AF a little bit faster and make it around 4 shots/second or more.  Price it between $600-700 and you've got a killer camera.

I enjoyed the G12 while it lasted. Had it in a softcase, placed it on the seat of my motorcycle for a moment, bumped it with my arm and it fell to the ground (my fault) and the flip out screen never worked again. The seat height is 32 inches. The quote to fix it was almost half the price of a new one. Yikes. Let's hope the G15s are built a little tougher.

Looks like there could be a "aperture" dial on it too.

Maybe next time, you can secure a belt bag (wear it of course), leave it there when you're not using and wear the neck strap whenever you want to use it.  For me, I treat my photography equipment like a fragile glass.  Sure, it's a little bit awkward but at least I can still use it the next day.  Anyway, I sure hope G15 will kick-ass.  :)
