Canon - PowerShot G11 with 28 mm lens..... I love my camera!
9 September 2012
Excerpt: Best Birthday Present I love this camera! I am not the most technical person and this has been such an easy camera to use and to get awesome pictures. I have used this camera to take "school pictures" for my youngest . We had them enlarged into 8x10's and they really looked great. No one could tell the difference. The Canon G11 has many cool features. I love that I can change the effects ( black and white, sepia, etc.
Excerpt: I have always preferred Canon cameras and had an old G6 which still works great but doesn't have the best stabilization and picture quality was starting to diminish. So I upgraded to the G11 and have had no problems with it. The macro mode is great if you are trying to take a close up picture and stabilization is much better on this model. The only thing I don't like about this camera is I wish it had different preset modes.
Canon PowerShot G11= Great step up from your point and shoot

Excerpt: Here are some fabulous facts about the Canon G11. The weight, shape and size of this camera feels just right in my hands. The LCD screen is bright, large and maneuverable. It flips around so you can easily take self portraits or rotate it all the way around so you can close it while snapping shots with the viewfinder. I love that i don't have to smudge the LCD screen all the day long. It shoots movies. I was told by the guy who sold it to me that, all the pros are...
Summary: nearing 10,000 photos shot with my G11. Still love it though upgrading to Sony Nex-5. Very feature rich. Fits in large pocket which is a must for me. Only 5X zoom. Battery life is excellent. Not sure why i ever got a spare batt. Wish the sensor was bigger, but then don't we all. Well made and durable. flipping the screen saved it from scratches. 4 stars is my conservative rating.
Summary: This is the Royalty of Canon point and shoot cameras. The G series is a very capable "travel" camera when you don't want to haul around the SLR and lenses or want the "anonymity" that a small camera allows. It is quick to be ready to shoot and have allot of features and presets that very handy to have at hand.
Summary: Pros of G11 *The photos are awesome!! *The colors are great using vivid and film coloring settings *Great size to take everywhere with you *Handles Awesome and easy to hold while snapping shots *The options of colors and styles of photos are endless *All the buttons and knobs are perfect for my hands and easy to adjust *Love the brightness wheel on top of camera *It is great being able to change ISO on top of camera *Solid build little camera that can go from auto photos...
Excerpt: This is my first digital camera, I have taken a couple hundred pictures. I really love this camera, I can't compare it to other cameras because of lack of experience, but to me it is a great camera Problems: none
Summary: A solid high-end camera that delivers great results and has a usable high-ISO capability (up to ISO 800) with great ergonomy, an excellent swivel LCD, superb build quality and a really nice array of manual controls. Take in mind that is has sub-par VGA video resolution, a relatively slow performance, bulky size compared to the average compact camera and "just" 10mpx resolution.
Pros: 1. Really good results under low light conditions. Just don't expect the performance of a dSLR or evien a Micro 4/3; this is a compact camera with a tiny sensor. Really good results mean that you are not stuck at ISO 80 (that happened to me a lot with my previous G10), now you can go up to ISO 800 having a good quality., 2. Construction. Built like a tank., 3. Swivel LCD. It is a little smaller than G10's 3" LCD, but this 2.8" version is good enough, and you have the ...
Cons: Low res video. The lack of HD video these days is somewhat strange in such a high end camera. I don't really use this function that much, so this is not an importante weakness for me, but it may bother some users. The G11's VGA video resolution is a weak point., Resolution. Canon trade better high ISO performance by reducing the resolution. Not that many years ago the Canon Rebel XT's 8mpx seemed to be just perfectly enough, and even the G6 was 7.1mpx. No the G11 spor...
Summary: My Canon G11 works well with other cameras in the following situations: Theatre--The G11 and my digital SLR are very compatible for shooting theatre. When I need to shoot quiet scenes, I use the silent G11. When I need to shoot beyond the focal length range of the G11, I use the SLR. Golf--While standing within ear range of the golfer; the SLR while standing farther away. Landscape--For shooting test shots and the medium format film camera for taking the actual shot.
