I'm a Canon Professional Services Platinum member, professional wildlife and action sports photographer with several 1D Mark III and 40D bodies as well as way to many L lenses to mention. I wanted a quality walk around camera that shot the RAW format when I didn't want to carry a DSLR. I passed on the G10 because of the complaints of the low light problems. Since getting my G11 I am very very pleased with all aspects and functions of this camera. Especially the combination of still having a viewfinder plus the swivel LCD screen. If you wear glasses and have a hard time viewing a fixed LCD screen you will love the swivel feature. I wouldn't buy a camera without a viewfinder but using the swivel LCD is making me a convert to using the LCD more and more. This camera isn't a DSLR but it takes beyond excellent photographs, in all modes, from full Auto to Manual and Macro. Even though I don't use them much the Scene mode produces excellent results. The button layout and ergonomics of the camera are excellent. The function and ease of the buttons, menus and operation of the camera in all modes is by far one of the best feature of the camera, it is a dream to operate even in full Manual mode. The onboard flash operates fine with easy adjustable output but having a hot shoe to use an external flash is a big plus.. I put my 580 EX II flash on the hot shoe to try it and it makes the flash output and adjustments just about perfect. The menu layout and customization is excellent. The manual is well detailed and thorough. If I have one thing negative to say about the camera it is that even with my small hands there isn't a lot of room where you would normally put your right thumb on the back of the camera when focusing. I find myself hitting one of the buttons because of the small area to place your thumb. I find myself doing this more when I go to pick up the camera than when operating it. It is a bit of a bug but not anything near enough to give it a negative mark because the button layout and functions are what make the camera a dream to operate. It is build as solid as the big DSLR models and if handled with care will undoubtably last many years of excellent operation. I might even have to get the underwater housing for wet, scuba and snorkeling shots.

im dissapointed with my g11 because its not as well built as id heard. i believe the g10 had all alloy case,but the rear panel on the g11 is plastic and feels cheap an fragile,so would crack quite easy. my old powershot s40 is much more robust and still going strong after 8 years. my other problem is that its difficult to hold without touching buttons by mistake,it really spoils the whole experience of using the camera,which is a shame,because the image quality is excellent from such a small sensor. a little more thought about button layout and the use of quality materials and this would have been a great liitle camera.

      Comments about Canon PowerShot G11 Black 10 Megapixels Digital Camera:

      I have owned a G11 for the past 3 yrs. I am a semi professional photographer meaning yes I have sold my work but I do not make a living at it, because I don't "choose" this as my main profession. This camera can absolutely stand up to whatever I really need to through at it! It is a back up to my D 60, however sometimes I choose to just go ahead and shoot with it and not bother with the D60 for practical reasons determined by where I am going and what I am shooting. Pro's: - Shoots very well in low light situations - Fast shutter speed -You can easily do light work using a flash on the shoe, and with the various flashes I like to bounce light, you can get very creative with lighting! Yes it comes with it's own built in flash, but add a extra and have a massive amount of fun! (suggestion with lighting if your a beginner, go on youtube and see some demo's and tis can guide you, then get crazy with exploration and see how much this aspect of shooting alone can be awesome!) - Okay turn the flash off in the settings and play with low light shooting, it is absolutely capable of producing some great low light shots! I shoot a lot in low setting! - Rotation screen allows me to stand and shoot from very otherwise challenging positions that otherwise would not be accessible. (NOTE: this has been removed from the new G15 and I think that was a HUGE mistake!) - A large amount of various settings and options! I mean a mass amount. All work very well and are fully dependable!! See the canon list for the specs to tell you what all it can do, and know that not only does it do it exceptionally well for camera itt's - The zoom may not take you into the middle of a football field during game time, BUT your shooting at high enough resolution that all you have to do is crop and pull up shot on a editing program to bring it close up and with clarity! - YES it does shoot fast response speeds. So you CAN shoot sports action shots. Are they like what I can do with the D60, okay no, but my experience playing around on a trip into the Blue Ridge Mountains, my D 60 was in the shop, they gave me a T3i loaner, and within the first hour of shooting with the T3i, I packed that away (unless you have money to invest right away in lens and I did not find that as being compatible really wi the D60, your pretty much stuck with the extremely lousy lens, and sorry but I was far from impressed, I packed that T3i away and pulled out my G11 and went on back to doing my shoot. - I have not really used the camcorder part of this camera but I can say that is it very easy to access and turn it right on. - The dial on top for moving the settings also has other way to st the ISO at the easy flip of switch _ there is a automatic setting spot in "Green", put it there and the camera will decide everything for you if you find yourself wanting to just get to know the camera at first I HGIHLY suggest putting the camera on this setting. , just remember to explore with this camera it is loaded with options for beginners to semi pro to even professional back up. -compact but NOT tiny, you can't carry in your pocket, but you can carry easily in an alternative bag/ I carry it with me every single day in my man bag, front pocket nice and secure. I also pack 2 spare batteries and a charger because of the compact size of it all. NOTE I actually own two G11 cameras for a very specific reason. I don't want to ever be without one. They are becoming harder and harder to find due to the G12 that came after it, with the awful body, and less quality all around, with less performance in every area, and then the G15 which was just released a mo ago, and I look and realize, no rotating screen. Are they serious what where they thinking?! one of the great parts of this camera, something that is coming out on more and more cameras, much less quality of a camera and this no longer has it. Really bad choice. However I have noted that they have again improved the body and material that the body was made rom. however the G12 does NOT shoot even in the ball park as nicely as the G11. You will also note that the price of the G11 has gone UP and is on avg. 630.00 unless you buy used. - Have shot extreme sports shots, remember to use rapid burst of 3 or 6 continuous shots. I just shot an entire wedding with the G11 for a friend. Had I been doing it professionally I would have used the D60, however this was for fun and came out awesome!!! The D 60 will out perform obviously, but the G11 is one powerful pack in it's own rights!! - LCD is adjusting, so set it on the brightness you want and move on. -also the battery life is great! Always keep as a spare charged and with you, but know that the active battery is not going to drain at the drop of a hat either!! Not only would I refer this camera to a friend, i refer people to the G11 all the time, and have never had one person wish they had done something different. This is no question a 5 star camera out of 5 stars.

      G11 Outperforms my G10 in Low Light

      By smcollum

      from Santa Fe, NM

      Pros

      • g11- even more custom shooting modes available
      • superior low-light pictures
      • tuff well constructed
      • variety of output jpeg or raw or both!

      Cons

      • liked fixed 3" screen of the g10
      • Size is a little big
      • would like to see gps

      Best Uses

        Comments about Canon PowerShot G11 Black 10 Megapixels Digital Camera:

        The G11 out performs my G10 in very low-light situations. I don't have to use the flash as often thus I can squeeze off shots that I otherwise might be waiting for the flash to recycle. Ability not to distract subject with the use of the low light modes, non use of the flash once again. I am not a fan of the new viewing screen, I suppose if I shot more in movie mode I might become accustom to it. Once again though Canon has produced the best point and shoot on the market.

          This is a surprisingly easy to use camera in auto mode and powerful when changed to program. I prefer to use this camera in aperture priority mode adjusting the f-stop for the shot type. The detail is fantastic and artistic capability is beyond what you would expect from a compact camera. Manual settings are good and the light metering is also intuitive. I love this camera!

            Comments about Canon PowerShot G11 Black 10 Megapixels Digital Camera:

            I have owned my G11 for seven months and absolutely hate it. I have taken thousands of photos with this camera and my delete button is nearly worn out on my keyboard. The manual settings are virtually useless; and the macro is a joke. It will usually not focus. The auto settings such as portrait are great, and most photos taken outdoors are fine.....except I can not take a decent photo of a Hummingbird. Not one all year. I want either my PowerShot S3 back or even my A95 back.

              I wish I had a camera like this before when my kids were younger. I took it for my trip to Italy and do not regret this desicion at all. I took it every where, it is so portable. The colors of the photos are amazing! As long as Cannon continues to make cameras like this one, I will never switch to other brands.

                I've had the G9 thru this G11- Used them all in my series at the Vatican. If the G11 (and G12) had a larger sensor (APS-C or 4/3thds) and better/easier/more accurate manual focus I could leave my 5D MarkII at home - would save my back. This is really a great camera - I use it mostly in M (manual) mode , but I can hand it to anyone else, put it on P and get great shots - very rarely loosing a shot - the raw is very good.

                    Comments about Canon PowerShot G11 Black 10 Megapixels Digital Camera:

                    I purchased the G11 four days ago. I have taken about 600 pictures to test it out. I liked the indoor pictures taken in a dark room, macro and regular pictures of flowers, waves. I have not tested with portraits yet. I thought that most of the automation was very good. My real disappointment lies with the "Sunset" settings... and indeed the camera's ability to take photos of the setting sun. I discovered (and Canon Customer service confirmed via telephone) that the Sunset feature is NOT for taking pictures of a setting Sun. It is instead for taking pictures of say, people with a colorful sky (post sunset) in the background or perhaps for taking a picture of the sky alone post sunset. If you want to take a true picture of the setting sun I recommend setting camera to ASA 80. Go to manual mode and chose the highest number F-Stop the camera allows you to set... also the shortest exposure duration. You might not get a great picture... but at least you will see a round object (perhaps more white and less yellow in color than you would like) against a dark background if you don't enlarge the picture a lot. Again, I have only a few days experience with this camera and will be trying alternative settings.

                      Here's what I like about this product: the wide variety of options; the ease of changing iso; the range of the telephoto; the viewfinder; the silence of operation. There is a lag though between the time of clicking the button and the photo being taken. Dogs are turning away and cats are gone before the picture is taken. This is especially true with the "large" plus "raw" setting. I like to take wildlife photos and this is a frustration for me.

                        I own a 5DMkII, a 7D and a 50D, and sometimes I rather take pictures with this little camera than any of them, specially on family trips or when I want to shoot lite or be unobtrusive. I usually have this camera set on AV mode with f8.0 dialed in, auto ISO and flash always on, and exposure compensation dial anywhere from -1 to -2. It takes amazing pictures in daylight with subjects 10-15 feet way, even against direct sunlight!! At these settings, pictures come out nice and sharp. For night, I set the flash to its other ON mode. Still, this camera specially shines in daylight photos with fill-in flash. If anything, a dedicated flash operation dial/switch would make it even better, so that you don't have to navigate through screens. A longer lasting battery would also be useful if you're always shooting with flash. The underwater case is also a great accessory, all the controls work easily, except the dial, which has a quirky way around it (you really have to look in the manuals to learn how it operates). I also like that it shoots RAW. It can even use advanced Canon Speedlites on the available hotshoe (an extension cord is recommended for the larger units) or an ST-E2 flash commander. Great camera at a great price, and the perfect companion for any DSLR kit.
