DCRP Review: Canon PowerShot G5
by Jeff Keller, DCRP Founder/Editor
Last Updated: Friday, June 13, 2003

You read our review of this camera, right?

Unless otherwise noted, all photos were taken at Large/Superfine, ISO 50, with the rest of the settings at default values. The G5 tested was a production model.

Photos 1-10 were taken in and around Chinatown.

Photos 11-12 were taken along the Embarcadero.

Photos 13-19 were taken during the postgame fireworks show at Pac Bell Park. I took them from down the street, as I didn't actually go to the game. I used a tripod for these shots.

Photos 20-26 were taken at Crissy Field and Fort Point.

Clicking on the thumbnail will display a reduced, 800 x 600 image. Clicking on the link below that will show the full-size (large!) image. Please do not judge the photo quality from any image except for the full-size image, as these smaller images were recompressed when they were downsized.

I've noted any special modes I used underneath the photo. You can click on "View EXIF data" to get additional information about each photo.

You can see the Ferry Building all the way in the back.

The first shot I took... after this I realized that I had better point the camera higher in the sky.

Probably my favorite of the bunch. Very patriotic.

I'm including a RAW version of this shot (link is below). Remember that you need Canon's software in order to view it.

As you can see, the weather wasn't great.
