**Using an industry standard GretagMacbeth color chart, we tested the camera’s ability to accurately depict colors. We did this by lighting up the color chart to perfection and placing the Canon G7 in front of it on a tripod, and then snapping pictures. We loaded the pictures into Imatest software and it output the following chart.
|Optical Zoom||6 x|
|Digital Zoom||4 x|
|Effective Pixels||10.0 Megapixels|
