Great second camera

Wizard of Gauze, Amazon
22 December 2015
  • Summary: My main cameral is a Canon 5D MkII. I bought this for family snapshots and events where the big camera would be too obtrusive. I have had the camera about a week and have taken about 300 photos. It's small and easy to carry. Works very well up to ISO 800.

Can't get a better point and shoot

Yachtshot, Amazon

  • Summary: EXCEPT the G12. This camera the best point and shoot or manual camera on the market. I know someone that has a G12 and the zoom is more excellent than this one. He can zoom all the way out and get a razor sharp photo and no one would believe it was a zoom shot.

  • 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: The Canon G11 sits at the top of the G series. I formerly owned the G9. I miss the intervalometer that allows a times series of shots, although I never used it much. I just miss not having the capability. I am more concerned about the loss of a powerful telephoto range that the G9 had.
  • Pros: Picture quality is terrific once processed from raw to a jpeg in Photoshop or similar program. The build is strong and high quality. It has image stabilization, but most do. The LCD screen opens and swivels--something I find absolutely essential. It has a variety of tricks, like a built-in neutra...
  • Cons: Zoom is not powerful enough. Video is a low 640 resolution, not good if you are editing video from different cameras, and one of them is high definition. The controls on the back are a bit tiny and are easily bumped and actuated by accident. I've hit he manual focus many times when I didn't inten...

Canon PowerShot G11

  • Summary: Very happy with my new Canon. Picture quality is terrific! Only complaint (thus far) is that the camera isn't designed to shoot one handed. If you try to hold the camer and shoot with one hand..your palm tends to press against the menu buttons.

  • Excerpt: I recently made 1300 pictures on a group trip. The results are fantastic. Using the SCN scene stand Indoor delivers very good pictures of f.i. dancing people and the SCN stand Sport delivers sharp pictures from out of a riding bus. I was amazed by the results.

  • Conclusion: 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.

Canon PowerShot G11 review

Gary Wilson, Amazon
20 April 2010
  • Summary: Over time I've owned nearly all the PowerShot G system cameras and still have the G1 and G2 for sentimental reasons. On a few occasions I've had these cameras converted to infrared usage. The line is well respected and there is never a problem of finding an eager buyer when it comes time to upgrade.
