Canon PowerShot G15 Review at Amateur Photographer UK: The field of prosumer cameras has never been so crowded, and Canon's decision to remove the vari-angle screen from the G15 has not helped its position.

"With so many advanced compact cameras now available, the Canon PowerShot G15 may not hold the lofty position among enthusiast photographers that its predecessors did. That is not to say it isn't an excellent compact camera, though, as it is certainly equal to, if not better than the competition. The new 12.1-million-pixel CMOS sensor performs well, and the camera's build and handling are as good as ever. However, the decision to remove the articulated mechanism on the screen is an odd one, despite the few millimetres it saves.

Increasing the maximum aperture of the lens is a worthy move for the G15, and it will be of real benefit in low light and to improve shallow-depth-of-field images. Overall, though, I'm just not sure there is enough that is new about the G15 to warrant G12 users upgrading, particularly if they are fans of the older model's vari-angle screen."
