Top controls

The minimalist controls on the G3 include a relatively large--if fingerprint prone--shutter button and a tiny playback button. When connected to a network, WLAN lights up.

Zoom

When in the open position, the G3 reveals a zoom switch, which is fairly flat but delivers good feedback, and a textured area to rest your thumb. Such a large grip area is a nice luxury on a compact camera.
