Canon PowerShot G16

18 Reasons why Canon PowerShot G16 is better

than the average

1.Measurably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
9.3fpsvs 7.0fps (the average)
vs 60fps (best: Nikon DL18-50)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
356gvs 376g (the average)
vs 65.5g (best: HTC Re)
3.Explicitly better video recording quality
1,080 x 60fpsvs 1,003 x 36.4fps (the average)
vs 2,160 x 60fps (best: Canon EOS 1D X Mark II)
4.Has WiFi
Yesvs No (67% don't have it)
The device can connect to WiFi.
5.Has a stereo microphone
Yesvs No (53% don't have it)
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
6.Has a built-in HDR mode
Yesvs No (74% don't have it)
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
76mmvs 97mm (the average)
vs 39mm (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V)
8.Sizably less body volume
331.4cm³vs 531.1cm³ (the average)
vs 65.29cm³ (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
40mmvs 51mm (the average)
vs 13mm (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
10.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (54% don't have it)
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
11.Somewhat bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
12.Has 802.11n WiFi connection
Yesvs No (82% don't have it)
802.11n is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors - a, b and g.
13.Has a BSI sensor
Yesvs No (81% don't have it)
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
14.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.
15.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (57% don't have it)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
16.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
17.Substantially more microphone(s)
2vs 1 (the average)
vs 2 (best: Sony Alpha a6500)
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
18.Significantly wider aperture at minimum focal length
1.8vs 3.0 (the average)
vs 1 (best: Leica Q (Typ 116))
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
