Introduction | Canon PowerShot G16 sensor performance | Canon PowerShot G16 versus competition | Conclusion

In our labs, the PowerShot G16 achieved a DxOMark Sensor score of 54 points, and ranks as Canon’s third best performing compact, after the S120 and G1X. Given the latter camera has a physically larger 1.5-inch (18.7 x 14 mm) CMOS sensor;

Canon has made significant advances with the sensor in the G16 for both color depth and dynamic range. Low light scores, while good, are still behind the larger sensor in the G1X (which achieved 644 ISO).

Score

The G16 is currently Canon’s second best performing compact
