Canon PowerShot G1 | Sample Photos

The original Canon PowerShot G1 is a classic digital camera because it was one of the first prosumer (i.e., a mix of a consumer and a professional camera) digital cameras on the market.

What followed from Canon was a very successful line of compact digital cameras. The 3.3-megapixel images it captures are less “digital looking” (i.e., jagged edges) than those captured by most other consumer digital cameras back in the day.

When this camera was first released in 2000, I couldn’t wait to get hold of one. Its picture quality was much better than any other digital camera I owned before it. It can also record images in RAW format. This helps to get the most detail from the sensor, which is a little noisy by today’s standards.

In terms of colour the G1 captures, the blue hues shift towards magenta. This is easily corrected with a custom colour profile, and so is the noise from the sensor.

The camera’s image resolution is more than acceptable for A4 prints (as claimed in the manual) and online viewing. Interestingly, the G1s image ratio is 4:3 (like many cameras from the dawn of digital photography), and not 3:2 like many digital cameras today.

I wish I still had this camera. I would probably consider using it again – for fun! Look below at the Canon PowerShot G1 sample photos that I processed recently. Looking at them bought back some great memories!

In recent years, 35mm film and the use of vintage film cameras have made a comeback. Similarly, it would not surprise me if some classic digital cameras like the Canon PowerShot G1 would become popular again.

Interestingly, prices online are rising for some classic digital cameras from Canon, Nikon, and Olympus. I am already looking for a Canon G1! If not for nostalgia, but for the fact, the images have a certain “look” not achieved by modern digital cameras. Thank goodness I hear you say!

We know the world is not perfect, so why should our photos be perfect. This could partly explain the increasing appeal of 35mm film.
