Default Canon G3?

Hi, I am considering a Canon G3. All the research I've done so far seems to find it to be a great camera. However, has anyone had issues with the Canon G3's rendetion of green in photos of well lit grass looking flourescent or cartoon like? I have been following a couple threads on other sites mentioning it, yet I never heard any of the professional reviews mention it. All said G3 colors were accurate in balance and saturation.

I don't own one, but like you said, the PowerShot G3 has great reviews, even being recommended to people who are taking a look at the current PowerShot G5.

The only colour that I find is not reproduced accurately with the G3 is Purple. I don't think that this is only with G3s though. Usually using a different white balance setting or adjusting in photoshop corrects the problem.
All in all, it's a great camera

Hope this helps!

If it is only white balance (which would make some sense) then I'm not very surprised. It's not something that many cameras get right all the time. I once did a test with my 10D taking a picture in every white balance setting. The best one was the one explicitly for the indoor lighting I was using, then came Auto White Balance. Not as good as the "correct" one, but quite close.

It was a simple, but educational, test. This makes me think I should do it again with a variety of colors in the picture. See if it has a color dependent-problem....
