Flawless photography isn't easy, but you'll have a hard time taking a bad shot with Canon's wide array of face-saving functions.
The G1 makes photography as easy as you want it to be with an array of automated functions. Focus aperture, and white balance can all be adjusted automatically. As an additional safety measure, the G1 provides auto exposure bracketing (AEB), which captures three exposures, taken with a single shutter release, at stops over and under the targeted exposure. This allows a valuable safety valve when shooting in questionable light, tripling your chance of getting just the right shot.
