Canon PowerShot G11

  • Excerpt: The Canon G series range of cameras has been the forefront of the company’s ability to make indispensible range of digital cameras. Their overall image quality can very well be compared to an entry level DSLR. The Canon PowerShot G11 is more than just a digital camera it is actually built keeping the professional shutter bug in mind. The camera is not built for the masses but that shouldn’t stop anyone from buying it.

  • Conclusion: The G11 is the latest in a well-established line of compact cameras aimed at enthusiasts and, with its large-bodied, retro styling it would appear to be just as aspirational at its predecessors. However, there's hardly a niche left in the camera market that isn't finding itself getting pretty crowded as more manufacturers hunt for areas that will allow them room for a little bit of profit margin.
  • Pros: Very good all-round image quality (albeit without the G10's excellent low ISO resolution), Generally good high-ISO performance for a compact camera, surprisingly good high ISO raw output, Flexible lens range with effective image stabilization, Very little vignetting and good edge-to-edge sharpness across the zoom range, Low lens distortion (none at the long end), RAW mode (and RAW+JPEG option) that's fast enough to be useable, Classic styling backed up with high build...
  • Cons: Rather slow lens (in terms of aperture) by traditional G series standards, Movies limited to VGA resolution, High ISO images lose saturation and detail (and offer no control over noise reduction), Focus prone to hunting (and focus failure) in low light at longer focal lengths, Some chromatic aberration visible at wide end of zoom, Focus speeds and shutter lag (when using LCD) could be better, Rather over-sharp JPEGS, The JPEG accompanying a RAW always has default imag...

Canon PowerShot G11

Camera Labs
1 November 2009
  • Summary: Like previous models in the series, the G11 shares much in common with its predecessor, but makes a handful of evolutionary changes to satisfy demands – although revealingly two of the major ‘advances’ here are actually blasts from the past. After many pleas, Canon’s finally brought back an articulated screen, a feature not seen since the G6 back in 2004. It’s also reduced the resolution to the same 10 Megapixels of the G7 2006 model.
  • Pros: 5x zoom with 28mm wide and 1cm macro., Flash hotshoe, RAW files and high ISOs., Great quality 2.8in / 460k articulated screen., Good controls, build and ergonomics.
  • Cons: Slow burst shooting – just 1.1fps at full res., No HD movies or zooming when filming., Noise better than G10, but beaten by M4/3., Older G10 delivers more detail at 80 ISO.

  • Pros: Ultra-versatile, loads of quick-access controls, high quality screen

Canon PowerShot G11

PhotoReview
1 December 2009
  • Summary: The latest model in the popular G-series of digicams for photo enthusiasts.Canon surprised many industry observers by replacing the 14-megapixel PowerShot G10 with the 10-megapixel G11 model. However, this move makes sense because image noise was an issue with the G10 at ISO 400 and most photographers should appreciate having fewer - but larger - photosites that deliver better image quality.
  • Pros: You want a compact digital camera that fits into a jacket pocket., You want effective image stabilisation for stills and video clips., You'd like most of the controls and functions offered in serious DSLR cameras., You're interested in shooting raw files., You require high resolution and low noise levels at ISO settings up to 800.
  • Cons: You'd like the ability to shoot HD video clips., You will only shoot JPEG files., You require high burst speeds and buffer capacity plus fast cycle times for processing shots.

21 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Wer gerne eine etwas größere Kompaktkamera in der Hand hat, viel Wert auf die Bildqualität legt und sich an vielen Futures erfreut, für denjenigen wird die PowerShot G11 interessant. Ein schwenkbares Display und viele Bedienelemente lassen das Fotoherz höher schlagen - eine echte Alternative zu einer digitalen Spiegelreflexkamera.
