Excerpt: I owned a G5 prior to getting the G11. I waited until the articulating screen came back before I upgraded. I find the G11 takes wonderful pictures. It is a good companion for me to my 5D MkII when I just want to casually capture images on the go of family, street, scenery, ... etc.
Excerpt: I took the camera to a dance performance in a theater. Despite having lots of LEDs, it is still hard to use the camera in the dark. I set the ISO to 800 and 1600, and the photos are quite acceptable, even when viewed at 100% zoom.
Excerpt: I've bought this camera about 1,5 months ago. I've been using it for quick snapshots on vacations, family gatherings and occasionally landscape and animal photography. It's not as fast as I tought it would be. The auto focus sometimes just doesn't understand what I want to do.
Summary: It's a good camera, but one aspect of the camera is awful and makes the AUTO and scene modes relatively useless. I usually shoot PROGRAM mode and manually set the ISO to get the sharpest image possible.
Summary: I've had a G7 for a while and really like it. When they announced the G11, I pre-ordered it on Amazon. I had really high hopes for it. Unfortunately, it wasn't worth the wait as an upgrade. I took a bunch of photos with my G7 and G11 of the same subjects and compared them.
Summary: This is an OK Camera. in other words, damned by faint praise. I have always owned Canon cameras and have a powershot and 400D, 5D2 and a 1Ds Mk II. This appealed because it offers SLR flexibility in a small size. Good as a walk around for a semi- professional - or so i thought.
Summary: As with all Canon power shot cameras, the viewfinder is partly blocked by the lens. I have several cameras and use my Panasonic Lumix FZ 38 most of all, I get the best results with my canon EOS450D but unfortunately it is heavy for me to use and I can not use it very often now that I have become...
Summary: Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase. For reasons of space and weight, I needed a substitute for my usual camera (Canon 5D Mark II). This was not the most compact model around but its combination of features including the ability to shoot raw images was quite compelling.
Summary: ich bin mit dieser camera grundsätzlich sehr zufrieden. natürlich hat auch sie ihre schwächen, aber welche camera hat die nicht? die cam ist ideal für alle, die keine spiegelreflex rumschleppen möchten, aber gleichzeitig mehr funktionen als bei einer simplen digicam nutzen möchten.
