DP Review

  • Summary: The G12 is an excellent compact camera, with a proven 10MP CCD sensor and effective ergonomics. Fans of 'hands-on' photography will love the big chunky dials, and the addition of a front control dial makes the G12 easier to get to grips with than its most recent predecessors.
  • Pros: Good image quality, useable results achievable up to ISO 3200 (if shooting Raw), Accurate metering and focus, Good JPEG resolution (though stick to Raw for best results), Fast and responsive in use, Excellent build quality, Good ergonomics (extra control dial makes a lot of difference), Lots of m...
  • Cons: Poor optical finder (but no worse than G11/Nikon P7000), No direct video recording button, 24fps maximum frame rate in 720p movie mode (although many people prefer this to 30fps+), Rear control dial can be hard to manipulate precisely, Video function lacks finesse - no zooming or AF during record...

28 April 2011
  • Summary: While not without flaws such as the AF responsiveness which is a little problematic in an otherwise eminently capable camera. The G12 is not cheap either but the camera's creativity and versatility are key and make the G12 – and the G-series cameras as a whole – ideal as pro's back up or an...
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, well made, superb lens, excellent feature set, good ergonomics and handling, JPEG and RAW capture, multi-angle LCD,
  • Cons: Price, high ISO noise problems, sluggish focusing, size,

  • Conclusion: The Canon PowerShot G12's images and features are excellent for a point-and-shoot camera, but at its size and price, you can get far better.
  • Pros: Very good image quality for a compact camera. Optical viewfinder. Manual controls. Articulating LCD.
  • Cons: Pricey. Bulky. Small sensor for such a big camera.

Review: Canon G12

Wired
15 April 2011
  • Pros: Tank-like build feels like it can take a pounding. Tons of external controls on the camera body will bring out the pro in you. Locking down the resolution at 10 MP means it’s a better performer in low light. Very good 720p HD capture with stereo sound. HDR (High Dynamic Range) processing will eve...
  • Cons: Even lower-priced competing models offer higher-resolution 1080p HD video capture. Only digital zooming during video capture degrades quality. Imaging sensor is still tiny, though other advanced compacts have gone big. Antiquated menu system.

Canon PowerShot G12 - Good, but could have been much more

thinkdigit.com
13 January 2011
  • Excerpt: To those in the know, Canons "G" series of PowerShot cameras represent the pinnacle of Canons compact-camera arsenal. These are not compact, removable lens systems like Sony's NEX series, but rather compact cameras that offer more features, performance and manual control than other PowerShot bodies,...
