High Dynamic Range Scene Mode with New Artistic Sub-Modes
Shooting in high contrast environments can often result in photos with overexposed and underexposed sections. So to tackle this problem, Canon developed the High Dynamic Range shooting mode to make shooting even more intuitive. Under High Dynamic Range the camera will shoot three different exposures in succession (underexposed, overexposed and normal) and then merge them into a single image. Underexposed areas are combined with the overexposed and vice versa, resulting in an evenly detailed image with flattering shadows and highlights. The PowerShot G16 camera allows you to use this feature without a tripod and features four sub-modes in addition to Natural Art Standard, Art Vivid, Art Bold and Art Embossed which provide striking effects that add to the creativity of your compositions.
Purchased for a trip to Africa. The high ISO and picture resolutions were great for the trip. Also did some HD video which came out great. Small size did not seem to effect picture quality. Pictures seemed as good as my 70D and 1Ds. WiFi and iOS 7 do not get along so could not use WiFi function. It's a known issue on the internet and I assume Canon will fix it in the near future. Video really takes toll on battery life, I suggest one carry a spare. So far have taken over 1400 pic and 30 videos on a 128gb chip using about 20gbs. Powerful camera in a Small Profile.
