    Hi,

    I am a novice here, probably one of the youngest too. I love photography and I don't want just stop at a level of shooting photos for family during vacation or other events. I kinda one to be serious into photography.

    So a person just bought me a Powershot G10. He is a pro photographer.

    What is your opinion on this G10 ? How do you compare it with a D-SLR ? Does it have enough features to be a serious camera ?

    Sorry if my question sounds silly to all of you.

    Don't worry...... about how good it is...

    1) you got it for free
    2) it works
    3) it takes pictures
    4) its a camera
    5) its free
    6) who cares other peoples opinions if you enjoy it and learn.

    The G10 is an excellent camera....

    If I said it was an awful camera, would it make a difference????

    I've used a G9 that belongs to a friend and it's hands-down the best non-dslr camera (it's not really a point and shoot) that i've used. It's got manual controls that are actually useable in a small camera. I would buy one if I wasn't saving for certain other lenses.. the G10 supposedly improves on the G9, so I think you should be set unless you feel like you need interchangeable lenses or something.

    Dude... I guess I should have ended my post with this:

    You just got one of the best (if not the best) current market high end P&S money can buy...... for free...

    Go out and shoot
    Enjoy
    and post here for some fun.

    Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.
