Take Your Creativity Further with Optional Accessories.
A host of optional accessories including Speedlite flashes, underwater housing and a Tele-Converter Lens expands imaging possibilities.
The PowerShot G15 lets you expand your creative options with a variety of optional accessories. Newly designed for the PowerShot G15, Tele-Converter TC-DC58E* enlarges the zoom's reach by 1.4x. A lens hood is included to block unnecessary light from outside the angle of view.
Several Canon Speedlite flashes are also available for use with the PowerShot G15 to give you advanced options for exposure and illumination*. Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX is perfect for close-up and macro shooting, and the innovative Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX delivers a directional quality to macro illumination.
With Underwater Housing WP-DC48, you can use your PowerShot G15 to document your snorkeling and diving adventures all the way to depths of 130 ft. (40m). The case is also great for protecting the camera from rain, ocean spray at the beach and any wet conditions.
* Conversion Lens Adapter LA-DC58L is required for Tele-Converter TC-DC58E and Speedlite flashes.
Excellent but fragile
I have used most of the 'G' range, exception the G5, and my favorite the G10. I love the fixed screen - its slim robust and does not require opening and closing to use the camera. The image results outstanding - and I have compared to 4/3rds cameras and its even better that my G1x. BUT the body finish of the G15 is fragile and easily damaged, mine chipped in no time and made a nice camera look very second hand after a couple of outings. So I invite Canon to comment and return the G15 finish to the robust tough finish of the G10/11/12

Nice Camera! Well built. NOTE: The aperture only goes down to f8.0. No f16 and no f22.

Best Pocket Pro
I have two DSLRs and five lenses. I have been shooting professionally for many years, but sometimes, I get tired of packing all my stuff. I bought the G15 in the hopes of finding a top of the line pocket camera. Well.....this is the one for me. Listen....it's not a DSLR...OK. But for all around shooting...it is phenomenal. And it has many sweet features, like 10fps and night shots mode that really come in handy.
I love it.

Many "professional" reviews compare this camera to similar "large sensor" cameras and conclude that the large sensor cameras "win" - but you should ignore those reviews. The optics on this camera blow away the competition - there is no 5x zoom point-and-shoot camera with an F2.8 lens at maximum zoom. I would prefer a large sensor, but the trade-off is size. To get an F1.8-2.8 lens on a large sensor camera, I think you'd need a lot of glass. The manual controls with physical knobs and two custom settings are also great. This camera replaces my G10 - which I also enjoyed for years.
