Canon Powershot G7 Point and Shoot Camera

I received the Canon PowerShot G7 about 3 years ago. I borrowed it from my mother in law and fell in love with it! She said I could keep it as long as I needed and 3 years later I have not wanted to give it back.

I am not a professional photographer and have never taken a class on photography – but I can tell you this takes amazing pictures!

If you are looking for a camera that takes high quality photos like a DSLR but is easy to use like a Point and Shoot, this is your camera.  There are lots of manual settings I have yet to play around with and discover how to use, so I know it is even more fabulous than I give it credit for.  It is 10 MP and has the ability to shoot video. The video quality is excellent too, provided you have good lighting.

My favorite feature is the Macro setting for close up shots.  It is able to pick up tiny details in photos while blurring out the background. This makes for some stunning photographs! I also love that the battery is rechargeable!

I have a very rambunctious 3 year old and curious 20 month old and both have used the camera without breaking it.

The only negatives that I must tell you are the bulkiness and performance in low light.  It is bulkier than a pocket point and shoot, but my 3 year old can carry it around without dropping it.  I am sure if I learn more about the settings I can get it to work better in low light but really it performs the best in natural light or bright lights.  I used this camera in a low-light wedding ceremony and used the low-cost Canon powershot at the same ceremony.  This one took much much better photographs!  They were a lot less grainy and showed truer colors.

Right now Canon has released a Canon G12, so this one is “outdated” but it performs amazing and I have not been tempted to buy the newer version.
