For the casual shooter, this is all you need

Larry Renger "DesignMan", Amazon
10 June 2013
  • Summary: I find this to be my go-to camera for casual daytrips. It is a bit too slow to catch those "magic moments" with grandkids or whale watching, etc. I would now go for the latest version, the G-15.

I'd buy one again - 10k pictures later

  • 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.

Top of the line Point and Shoot

  • 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.

Fast becoming a favorite camera

Joe Harlow "Torque", Amazon
10 March 2011
  • Summary: I thought I wanted an S95 just before leaving for Scotland for a couple of weeks but the S95 didn't come out soon enough so I bought a G11 thinking that I would sell it upon my return. Didn't happen, while is Scotland I fell for the G11 completely. The first thing I loved about it was the swivel screen, wow does that open up the possibilities for original shots. The second thing is having all the knobs on top of the camera, so much better than a darn "menu".

Better Than Expected

G.C. Rifey, Amazon
21 October 2010
  • Summary: Well, I've had this camera for a couple of weeks now and I love it. My old Canon A95 of six years died and I needed a replacement. Two qualities I wanted, in addition to clean images were a view finder and flip out LCD. Actually I had boiled down my choices to the G11, the Canon S95 and the Lumix LX5. All three are great cameras and once you had one I don't think you would be disappointed with any of them.

Nice Camera -- But Viewfinder is a problem

MM "MM", Amazon
20 October 2010
  • Summary: I bought this camera as a "carry around" camera and to take out on the water when kayaking (bought a dry bag for this part). I gotten some good quality pictures and the camera has met most of my expectations. I normally use a Nikon D-90 and am used to framing my pictures through an eyepiece. This was particularly important to me when out on the water as the strong sunlight makes it difficult to shoot using the LCD monitor in all situation.

  • Summary: this is a great camera if you don't want much zoom. it needs a 10x or more optical zoom lens and if it did, i would keep it in a minute. sorry, but that is the final answer.
