Canon has announced the powershot G15 at this year’s Photokina camera trade show in Germany.
The G15 is noticeably smaller than the G12 (17% smaller) but its seems to have had little to no impact on the range of features, which is ideal.
The lens now has a f/1.8-2.8 maximum aperture across the 5x optical zoom range, that’s a big improvement on the G12.
PowerShot G15 features a two-level top control dial, a front dial, dedicated movie record and shortcut buttons, alongside a 920k-dot resolution 3-inch PureColor II G screen. There is also an optical viewfinder.
It also has full manual control with RAW support.
Other features include a burst rate of 10 shots/second, Full HD (1080p) movie recording at 24fps, Improved Auto Focus (AF) over the G12, Image Stabilizer technology, and ISO speeds up to 12800.
The Canon Powershot G15 will cost £549 and be available in late October.
