With a maximum aperture of f/1.8, a 12.1-megapixel CMOS sensor and a DIGIC 5 image processor, the Canon PowerShot G15 is a formidable little shooter that fits in a coat pocket. But don't take my word for it. When you're looking for an objective opinion about how good (or bad) a product is, the Customer Reviews section on the B&H website is an invaluable resource. We spent some time reading through the reviews on the G15, and collected some highlights in this post.

I needed the smallest, lightest high-quality camera with the viewfinder for the mountain trips.
