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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
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 80...
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 hig...
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.
