The Canon PowerShot G15 picks up where the G12 left off and steps up the game for the serious compact camera line with a f/1.8-2.8 5x optical zoom lens (28-140mm equivalent) and faster AF and shot-to-shot times.
The G15 sports a conservative 12.1MP CMOS sensor and Canon DIGIC 5 image processor, while offering max ISO speeds up to 12,800 and 1080p HD video capture. The G15 continues the serious feature set of a hot shoe for Canon Speedlites and an optical viewfinder, as well as a 3-inch 922k-dot res LCD.
The Canon G15 should be available in October for $499.99. Check availability here at B&H Photo.
