    I have a pro DSLR and then I have the best smartphone camera in the world. I needed something in between. I tried pretty much all of the newly released compacts and 3/4. Price was not an issue for me and I'm always looking for something newer and better. I did not expect at all to end up with the G12, which I considered an "old" model. To my surprise it turned out to be the winner. Here is why: - best COLOR BALANCE in all lighting situation - fast AF - sharp, dimensional pictures - good high ISO performance - Image Stabilization gives you those added stops that make hand held shots in low light possible - rugged, care-free - size and weight feels good in the hand - smaller chip size allows for real macro shots, sharp focus for objects as close as 1.5 inches (try that with any of the other models claiming macro) - correctly color calibrated and sharp LCD - battery charge last - awesome manual controls and dedicated dials - did I say, most accurate COLOR BALANCE in all lighting situations - it's FUN to use! It produced one keeper after another. I'm really impressed and happy with this camera. Awesome.

    Poor video function

    I like the excellent still image quality. But it's video function is too poor, too poor. How can you shoot the video without the zoom and auto focus function???

    G12 CAMERA REVIEW

    By jucarito

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Canon Black PowerShot G Series 10 Megapixels Digital Camera:

    I HAVE MY CAMERA SINCE DECEMBER 17, 2010. I NOTICED THAT I ALWAYS HAD A LITTLE PROBLEM WITH THE FOCUS, I THOUGH IT WAS ME. THEN ON AND OFF, SINCE THE BEGINNING, I HAD A BLANK SCREEN BUT AFTER FEW SECONDS IT WORKED NO PROBLEM. THEN ONE DAY IN MAY IT JUST STOP WORKING THE SCREEN WENT BLANK AND THE FEW TIMES IT WORKED IT GAVE ME A DISTORTED IMAGE! MY CAMERA NEVE EVER HAD A FALL. FOR THE PRICE VERY DISAPPOINTED. I WILL LOOK FOR ANOTHER BRAND NAME.

        Lens got stuck after only about 100 exposures. It was good while it worked, but the quality of this camera is poor in my opinion.

          Comments about Canon Black PowerShot G Series 10 Megapixels Digital Camera:

          I have rarely picked up my Canon 5D MkII since buying my G12. The most notable feature is the excellent outdoor flash fill, even with just the on-board flash. I also bought a Canon 270EX external flash, which greatly extends the flash range. The battery life is excellent, don't bother with a spare battery, get an external flash instead. Some amateur features (e.g., certain modes and special effects) just clutter up the menu but do not detract from the user experience. This is a great camera capable of professional photos, could save you the price of a DSLR.

            It does everything I want it to do and MORE. I use it in many different settings, photographing many different people, places, and things. The only draw back is that it takes a little time from when I press down on the shutter and when the camera does its thing. I HIGHLY recommend this camera for some one that wants very high quality pictures and doesn't want to lug around a bulky DSLR.

                I wanted a camera to take on a 35,000 mile trip in which I would be in meetings, dinners, conferences etc. and a large SLR would not be appropriate. When I saw the G-11 I knew it was going to do the trick. I came home with amazing shots I could not believe were so good. The credit belongs to the G-11 as it recorded everything I wanted to remember as I saw it. The low light mode was the happiest discovery as I was able to shoot in places where no flash was allowed and get spectacular results. Four friends bought G-11s after seeing what it did for me.

                    I have used all of the G series. The latest G12 is awesome. Fits in my pocket. Is light weight and so easy to get the greatest shots. I have been to Spain and the U.K. this year.. While those with the big SLR.s are focusing and lining up their shot, I have already taken 5 perfect shots.

                      This is my second G12 because the first one was dropped when the lens was open and had no cap over it to protect it. The lens was chipped when it hit a rock. Even so the camera still took many good shots. The problem was that macros were hard to focus and when the light hit the chipped lens there were glaring spots in my photos. My new G12 has a cover when not shooting and is my most used camera for day to day shooting. It often takes better macro shots than my bigger cameras. My only disappointment is the delay between shots.

                      A how to DVD is nice but is useless when you are in the middle of nowhere. An instruction manual should be included
