Explore Imaging Excellence.

Reaching new heights in speed, agility and creative possibilities, the PowerShot G15 gives photographers plenty of reasons to be delighted over. The excitement starts with the newly developed 5x Optical Zoom with 28mm Wide-Angle, bright f/1.8 (W) - f/2.8 (T) lens that performs beautifully across the entire zoom range, even in low light, and can create dramatic soft backgrounds with shallow depth-of-field. Additional great features for the PowerShot G15 include Canon's HS SYSTEM, which combines a High-Sensitivity 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor with the DIGIC 5 Image Processor for ultra-fast performance and phenomenal image quality, a new dual axis electronic level, plus upgraded video capture in 1080p Full HD with stereo sound. The PowerShot G15 is designed to inspire and support your advanced creativity with 12-bit multi aspect RAW+JPEG just like in Canon's EOS line of DSLR cameras, new High Speed AF which dramatically reduces lag time when shooting, and the ability to add optional Speedlite flashes and a Tele-Converter Lens. When you're ready to take the next step in your photographic journey, PowerShot G15 is ready to get you there.

Newly developed 5x Optical Zoom (28mm-140mm) and a bright f/1.8 (W) - f/2.8 (T) lens allows you to capture more in your frame. It is also ideal for low-light conditions or using shallow depth-of-field for dramatic, soft backgrounds.
Newly engineered specifically for the PowerShot G15, the camera's 28mm Wide-Angle 5x Optical Zoom lens with a focal length of 6.1-30.5mm (35mm film equivalent: 28-140mm) achieves f/1.8-f/2.8, making it one of the camera's most exciting features. The Wide-Angle lens gives your images a distinctive sweep and grandeur, capturing landscapes, cityscapes, tall buildings and wide groups of people with ease. The large f/1.8-2.8 aperture allows you to achieve shallow depth-of-field for creating portraits with beautiful, soft background blur, and incomparable Canon optical technology delivers a high performance lens enabling incredible images, even in low light.

12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor
The PowerShot G15 employs a Canon 12.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor, which delivers state-of-the-art imaging performance and is optimized for use in compact cameras. Utilizing a sophisticated light-capturing design, it provides high sensitivity for improved high ISO capture with reduced noise. It is also a high-speed design, capable of rapidly capturing and moving image data to the processor, enabling faster continuous shooting and faster autofocus.

Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor
The latest-generation Canon DIGIC 5 Image Processor works with the PowerShot G15's image sensor to bring phenomenal increases in processing speed and power, delivering incredible detail in more situations, without the need for artificial light sources. Improved noise reduction produces clearer images when shooting in low light at high ISO speeds up to ISO 12800. The faster processing speed results in faster continuous shooting capability while maintaining full image quality. With the power of the DIGIC 5 Image Processor, the PowerShot G15 can achieve higher ISO sensitivity and even perform advanced functions like lens correction, special scene modes and much more.

Canon HS SYSTEM for exceptional low-light performance up to ISO 12800
The PowerShot G15 gives you the power to create images with spectacular depth, detail and emotional resonance. The 12.1 Megapixel High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor works in concert with Canon's own latest-generation DIGIC 5 Image Processor to create the renowned Canon HS SYSTEM. With the Canon HS SYSTEM, you'll experience excellent tracking performance even in low light, and achieve gorgeous still image quality even at high ISO speeds all the way up to ISO 12800; beautiful low-light shots are possible with minimal noise and maximum detail in highlight and shadow areas. The Canon HS SYSTEM lets you use higher shutter speeds to capture clearer images with reduced noise and blur in a variety of situations for incredible photos and videos.

Capture stunning 1080p Full HD video in stereo sound with a dedicated movie button; video functions include fine detail movie processing for lifelike images, zoom while shooting, and convenient playback on an HDTV via the HDMI output.
Simply touch the dedicated movie button, now conveniently embedded in the PowerShot G15's thumb pad, to start recording video in 1080p Full HD. Video captured in 1080p Full HD is breathtakingly vivid and realistic, and Canon's Fine Detail Movie Processing achieves beautiful videos with high resolution processing that records approximately 4x the amount of information during video shooting for even greater image clarity and sharp portrayal of even the most delicate of details. You're free to use the full range of the zoom in movie mode, and sound is recorded in stereo. An HDMI output allows you to view and share your video on an HDTV immediately, simply by connecting the camera to the TV with an optional HDMI cable.
