If you're looking for pro features in a compact camera, the PowerShot G15 has them in spades. It has an optical viewfinder, can take lens filters and even has a useful hotshoe for connecting an external flash. So we know this is no point-and-shoot but how are the images?

Verdict

Is the G15 perfect? Not quite. It's much smaller than its predecessor the G12, and that's led to the odd compromise; as we mentioned there's no dedicated ISO dial or tiltable screen, for starters. But then again this is supposed to be a compact camera, so we won't complain too loudly. 

The Sony RX1 just pips it overall, but if you need a compact to back up your DSLR and demand the likes of a viewfinder and filters, then this Canon should be the one for you.

Canon has kept the G-series brilliantly pro-friendly while cutting it down in size. Impressive.
