Some friends from Photography Bay have reviewed the new Canon PowerShot G12. It is a 10MP point-and-shoot camera, which is designed for the enthusiast photographer. The Canon PowerShot G12 features a 5x optical zoom (28-140mm equivalent) with an Optical Image Stabilization, an ISO 80-3200, an ISO 12800 at 2.5-megapixels, a 2.8-inch articulating LCD display, a Hotshoe for external flash and 720p HD video capture capabilities. Here is the conclusion:
While the Canon G12 is still a point and shoot camera with a small sensor that doesn’t match the quality of some of the mirrorless cameras available today, it still beats those cameras out on portability. And, it doesn’t lag too far behind on image quality. Stick to a reasonable ISO setting, and you’ll get great photos from this camera. The ability to capture RAW image files and 720p HD video makes the G12′s package especially sweet. The G12 comes with my highest recommendation – I bought one for myself.
