The camera is equipped with a long 5x optical zoom, and Canon's own Optical Image Stabilizer Technology keeps images steady and blur-free all through the zoom range - even in low light - by detecting motion and generating a corrective signal. Because it is an optical system, more corrective movement is allowed and there is no degradation of image quality.
The G10 is a highly versatile camera with a wide-angle zoom lens that reaches all the way from 28mm at the wide end to 140mm at the telephoto end (35mm format equivalent). You'll capture more image in every shot, and add greater depth to your overall photography.
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.
