I shoot 500-1000 photos a day along with 10-15 short videos (less than 5 minutes each) for a online auction business. We shoot everything from low light warehouses to heavy equipment in full sun
The Canon G16 works perfectly...it shoots well in low light, the flash it good when I need it, the battery lasts all day (I turn the camera off in between items) videos are great, etc
I have had 5 or 6 G16's throughout the years. I am now in need of a replacement. In the past I have been able to find G16's new but now I am only seeing used. I am reluctant to buy something used since I rely on this camera so much. Can anyone recommend a suitable modern replacement for my beloved G16?
I think the G16 was a 28-140mm equivalent, and f1.8~f2.8. Impressive for a 12.1 MP camera from 10 yrs ago.
You never mentioned budget. I checked Canon, B&H and BestBuy for point a shoot equivalents. All were out of stock or backordered. I'm sure you could find something somewhere.
Modern Replacement >>> Our expectations might differ?
Although close, I cannot recommend a M series camera. As this would be investing in a dead end.
What I could get behind >>> R100 - EOS R100 Body (canon.com)
or R100 with 18-45mm kit $599
Why I recommend it. It exceeds the performance characteristics of your 10 yr old camera. Its affordable, expandable (if you ever wanted to) buy another lens, and is future proof.

If you wanted to remain in the PowerShot line of cameras, then I recommend the G7X Mark II or Mark III. I typically shop at B&H or the Canon Online Refurbished Store.
