Canon PowerShot G12 Review

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,

DP Review
28 April 2011
  • 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...

Review: Canon G12

Wired
10 February 2011
  • Excerpt: If you’re looking for a high performance camera with great image quality, you should get a digital SLR, right? Well yes, DSLRs are top-drawer picture-takers. But they’re bulky and they weigh a ton.
  • 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.

  • Conclusion: Canon PowerShot G12 review A camera such as the Canon PowerShot G12 is always received with high expectations by photographers and enthusiastic amateurs.

Canon PowerShot G12 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: While the PowerShot G12 builds on the successful formula set out by the G11, it doesn’t really add anything new. It is perhaps best to think of it as a G11 Mark II, but this is no bad thing – the G11 is an excellent camera, winning AP’s 2010 Enthusiast Compact of the Year award.
