Default G2

I`ve had mine for 1 1/2 years and take wedding photos, vacation photos etc. This has been a great camera. I`m new to photography so started out in Auto mode and now am experimenting with various manual settings. Theis month I purchased a Speedlite 420ex flash and this opens up a whole new world. I think you would enjoy this camera- the only slight drawback I can think of, and this is occassional, is using the autofocus when in darkness.

Default G2 and 420EX

The 420ex does a great job and you can start by using the camera in Auto mode. I particularly like the bounce feature.

I bought one last December(Christmas present to myself) (i'm 15
anyway....i am EXTREMELY happy with it.....it is a great camera!
you should be pleased with it......i can't really think of any downpoints right now.......ahh got one.....the arperture doesn't go too high and low (only 2.8 to 8.0 i think) and the fastest shutter is 1/1000 (which isn't bad i've just seen better)
well that's all.....enjoy it

Hey teal, you will not be disappointed by your latest purchase. I've had my G2 for 5 months and I am very pleased. But then again, don't take my words for it. Instead let me show you what the G2 can do. WARNING large files. I didn't want to compress or shrink them so as to show you the real potential of the G2.

Default Powershot G2

Hi, just got mine !!! Had a sony DSC-P10 and was not satisfied with the pictures. If the reviews about the G3 and G5 are correct then the G2 will sit right along them because i do not see any need for an upgrade. The G2 performs equal in terms of image quality. The G3 and G5 may have a few enhancements but they ar all built with practically the same architecture. The G2 rocks . If you can find it,get it !!!!

I dont have a G2 but I have a G3 and if the G2 is half as good it will even then be a great camera. Since Ive gone digital I will never turn back to film cameras. The photos from the G series to me always look crisp and have great color. enjoy this camera.
