How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Canon's latest high-end compact has a very sharp, fast lens, good low-light performance, and full manual controls. PCMag says its "image quality and physical control layout are excellent," and DigitalCameraInfo says it's "a great choice" if you're looking for a small-sensor high-end compact, adding that they're "thrilled with the G15’s performance." While most critics continue to rank the Sony RX100 as their top compact camera (as do we), that large-sensor model sells for at least $200 more than the G15. As CNET puts it, the G15 is a " fine camera if you're looking for something better and with more manual controls than a typical point-and-shoot, but can't bring yourself to pay more than $500."

Canon's G1 X Mark III is its first APS-C sensor compact

It has an eye-watering $1,299 price and less powerful zoom than before, though.
