The Canon Powershot G7 is the kind of camera that not only makes you feel like a better photographer, but helps you become one too, mixing both comprehensive and happily reliable hand holding features with a plethora of real photographic controls that, along with build quality, at times exceeds that offered by many if not most budget DSLRs. OK, so some may bemoan the loss of RAW capture (and another annoyance is that the full manual is only on CD), but to be honest it wasn't something that concerned me greatly, and I'm guessing most of the target audience for this camera will probably already own a DSLR with that feature anyway. This model handles well, and feels like its built to last more than six months indeed it's one of the weightiest, most brick-like compacts out there for the amateur market. Yet you can still slot it comfortably into an inside coat pocket, meaning, unlike a DSLR, it's also a carry anywhere device. Though I'd hate to use the word great, in almost all aspects the Canon G7 is certainly very, very good. If I had to choose a back up compact for an SLR, the Canon PowerShot G7 would currently top the list. Superb. If you haven't yet submitted your list to Santa, or want a new toy to play with to beat those post-festive blues, seek out this sophisticated contender for some serious results.
