A World of Advantages With Canon's New Technology.
DIGIC 4 Image Processor
Canon's proprietary DIGIC Image Processors have long set its cameras apart from the competition, and the new DIGIC 4 sets the bar even higher. Faster, more accurate noise reduction delivers better image quality, even at high ISO speeds.
DIGIC 4 Image Processor
iSAPS Technology is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.

A new Face Self-Timer automatically detects an increase in the number of faces and makes the appropriate adjustments. For instance, to include photographer's face in a group shot, there's no need to rush in. Just put the camera on a stand or tripod, and specify Face Self-Timer, and the camera will wait for the photographer's face to get on-camera before it takes the shot. Motion Detection now tracks moving subjects in a much larger range, and the new Servo AF retains focus on a moving subject after the shutter button is pressed halfway - allowing you to wait for the perfect shot without refocusing. Also, Face Detection and Motion Detection are markedly improved.
Intelligent Contrast Correction
DIGIC 4 also makes possible the new i-Contrast (Intelligent Contrast Correction) system, which controls the compensation level in pixel units to brighten dark areas while leaving bright areas unchanged for better images where the main subject is dark, and more natural transition. The PowerShot G10 can even use i-Contrast in playback mode to adjust images that were shot without the setting activated.
Red-eye Correction provides three options for removing red-eye from subjects in flash pictures.
1) The Red-eye Correction during shooting actually identifies and corrects red-eye in human subjects as pictures are taken.
2) The G10 can be set to automatically detect and correct red-eye during image playback.
3) You can manually locate any red eyes in a scene during image playback on the LCD screen, and command the camera to remove them.
Life doesn't give you second chances to capture special times. That's why the G10 features ISO 1600 and High ISO Auto settings that reduce the effects of camera shake and sharpen subjects in low-light situations, giving you greater shooting flexibility. ISO can be expanded to 3200 when you select ISO 3200 Special Scene mode.
Happier with this camera than any I have ever had
This is the camera I always take with me. Small enough so it doesn't stay at home but still takes high enough quality images and offers enough features to handle 95% of what I want to do. I fell off a mountain, landed on this camera and it still works fine. I love it.

This camera is lack of the basic but very important of the digital cameras. It does not have time/date stamp. How can you tell when the pictures were taken after couple months. The much cheaper ones even have this feature. Very ridiculous.

This is a great camera for anyone that wants a DSLR but does not want to pay for one. It does draw short of a true DSLR, but has almost the same capabilties. You can't change the lens, manual focus is in a rough form and does not have HD video mode like the G9. I use it for racing, diving and even special shots like a DSLR. Once you learn all the different modes this will surely meet your expectations, unless you really need a DSLR. I previously had a G9 which had the 720p video that is now gone on the G10. This I miss the most. Don't understand why they did this. Also the Dive case does not allow for the rotary dial on the select nobe to be used. Overall this a great camera.
