Default G2 Black or G2 Silver

Just sold my Nikon 800 and have just about decided on G2. Cosmetics is not an issue, but wondering if the additional software is worth the extra $$$$?

Hi,

if I were you, I would buy the black G2 ... not only because the 1 GB Microdrive is a must, but it has the better look and doesn't reflect light like the "gold" version.

BTW ... I never heard about a difference in Software packages. As far as I know, the only difference is the included Microdrive with the black version ... both ship with Photoshop 5 LE ... in Germany ... maybe it's different in other countries, but I bet not.

Default 1 GB MicroDrive?

Geez, they weren't offering that in my area! In fact, both were $799 and identical packages.

In Europe the Black G2 comes with a Microdrive. In the US it comes with a 90 meg card.

In Canada the black G2 comes with a second battery and case for C$100 more. Considering the battery costs $120 it's a good deal.

Personally I dislike the look of the silver camera - the black looks more professional more in keeping with the prosumer type of camera it is.

my two cents

Camera color becomes less important to you when you have to send it in repeatedly for repair. Anyone owning or considering a Canon G2 should be aware of firmware problems which render the camera inoperative. This is a well documented issue. See following links:
