Brand: Canon

Model: PowerShot G16 Compact Digital Camera


Specs

Weight

11oz.

Features

Full manual controls are quick and easy to adjust, and a high-quality 5x optical (28mm-140mm) zoom allowed testers to capture hard-to-see shots. “I was 120 feet above my partner on a climb, and I zoomed all the way in so I could catch the subtleties of her expression,” one tester says. Bonus: The neutral density filter option lets you create striking motion-blur effects and reduce depth of field on bright sunny days to emphasize your subject matter.

Durability

The G16’s solid construction kept it running smoothly, even after getting routine dings on climbs in Chamonix, the Rockies, and the Tetons.
