Canon PowerShot G10 | Digital Camera Review | Storage and Energy
This will not come as a surprise: the SD and SDHC formats are supported, as per the demands within this market segment. And this market segment is large and still growing. SD is a definite standard and will lead the way in the future. This is most certainly the case if the SD platform is expanded with the introduction of the SDXC. This new format is already on paper, but the first hardware is yet to be introduced. With the SDXC providing a maximum storage capacity of 2TB, it may very well be the final blow to the other formats of memory cards.

Canon PowerShot G10 supports SDHC memory
Support of the SDHC memory card means that the Canon PowerShot G10 has no less than 32GB of storage space at its disposal. And with the 22MB it uses for a RAW+JPEG (Large) picture, you can store some 1500 images before having to change the card. It seems enough to us now, although we never thought we’d need this much GB not so long ago, however, we are confronted with reality time and again. Specifically; files increase in size much quicker than we thought and this is also the case with the Canon G10. Considering the highest quality and RAW format, I'd advise you to use an 8GB SDHC memory card.

Considering 8GB of storage capacity:
4416x3312 pixels - RAW - 18.7MB - 378 pictures
4416x3312 pixels - RAW & JPEG - 22.5MB - 318 pictures
4416x3312 pixels - JPEG - Superfine - 6.3MB - 1227 pictures
4416x3312 pixels - JPEG - Fine - 3.7MB - 2063 pictures
4416x3312 pixels - JPEG - Standard - 1.7MB - 4234 pictures
4416x2480 pixels - JPEG - Superfine - 4.7MB - 1637 pictures
4416x2480 pixels - JPEG - Fine - 2.8MB - 2759 pictures
4416x2480 pixels - JPEG - Standard - 1.3MB - 5581 pictures
3456x2592 pixels - JPEG - Superfine - 3.8MB - 1996 pictures
3456x2592 pixels - JPEG - Fine - 2.3MB - 3364 pictures
3456x2592 pixels - JPEG - Standard - 1.1MB - 6822 pictures

1600x1200 pixels - JPEG - Fine - 0.5MB - 12927 pictures
1600x1200 pixels - JPEG - Standard - 0.3MB - 24562 pictures

640x480 pixels - JPEG - Fine - 0.1MB - 40937 pictures
640x480 pixels - JPEG - Standard - 0.08MB - 61406 pictures

Video Resolution 640x480 pixels - 30fps - 1316KB - 1 hour 35 min 11 sec
Video Resolution 320x240 pixels - 30fps - 394KB - 4 hours 52 min 24 sec

USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface & Card reader
The side of the Canon PowerShot G10 carries a USB 2.0 Hi Speed interface, which lets you quickly transfer a full memory card of 2GB to the desktop or notebook. Personally, I detest having to fiddle with cables and I prefer the optional card reader. Then it is just a matter of removing the card from the camera and transferring your files through the card reader. The advantage is the fact you can use the camera whilst transferring and it saves battery capacity. What's more convenient is that you don't have to go looking for that one cable you need.

Canon PowerShot G10 Lithium Ion battery
The Canon PowerShot G10 uses a Lithium-Ion battery for energy; the NB-7L. This 7.4V 1050mAh battery can be fully recharged in about 2 hours and 20 minutes using the external battery charger that is standard included. It's always tricky to estimate the amount of pictures that can be taken with a fully charged battery since the photographing conditions (environmental temperature, use of flash etc) strongly depend on the photographer and his environment. One standard we can use is the CIPA measurements. CIPA uses standardized conditions. According to their measurements, the battery will last for approximately 400 pictures with the monitor turned on. Without the use of the monitor, this amount increases significantly to approximately 1000 pictures. This is really good to know so you can turn off the monitor if you don't have that much battery left. And the fact the Canon PowerShot G10 comes with an optical viewfinder comes in handy in these cases.
