Canon continues to improve their popular G-Series digital cameras with small, incremental changes. Anyone who has used a G7 or newer G-Series model will recognize the layout of the camera as it has remained consistent throughout the G7, G9, G10, G11, G12, G15 and now the G16.

The G16 is very similar to the G15 with the addition of Wi-Fi capability, an upgraded processor and enhanced HD video features.

The G16 is a 12 megapixel digital camera with a 5x optical zoom lens. The new Digic 6 processor makes the camera very fast with almost instantaneous focus lock and almost no shutter lag.

Wi-Fi is a new feature and it allows you to view and/or transfer images from the camera to a smart phone, tablet or computer. Unfortunately, the transfer of images is not automatic (like the Eye-Fi card). In a busy practice, it will still be faster to put the memory card from the camera in a card reader and transfer the images, but you do have the option to transfer via Wi-Fi.

The PhotoMed G16 Digital Dental Camera is specifically designed to allow you take all of the standard clinical views with "frame and focus" simplicity.The built-in color monitor allows you to precisely frame your subject. Focus and shoot. It's that easy.

Proper exposure and balanced even lighting are assured. By using the camera's built-in flash, the amount of light necessary for a proper exposure is guaranteed and PhotoMed's custom closeup lighting attachment redirects the light from the camera's flash to create a balanced, even lighting across the field.

Like previous G-Series models, the G16 features two custom settings (C1 & C2) on the mode dial. These custom settings allow you to set a lens position in the zoom range and the camera will set the lens to this position each time you turn the camera to one of the custom setttings.

For dentistry, this allows you to set two specific "magnifications" and repeatedly shoot the same field size over and over. For orthodontics, you can set one custom setting for the 1:2 magnification (anterior, occlusals and buccals) and the other for full face and profile shots.

For your convenience, we pre-program the two custom settings: C1 for portraits and C2 for the closeup views.
You can, or course, reset them to any settings that you like. Our custom instructions walk you through the necessary steps to do this.

The G16 Digital Dental Camera System works with all imaging software packages - Windows or Apple operating systems.
