Excerpt: The Canon G12 is a 10 megapixel camera. I purchased it over a year ago and although it’s not the best camera that I have owned I believe it works fairly well. When I purchased the camera it was used and I paid 300 dollars for it. …
Summary: Up until this summer, 2 1/2 years after purchasing, I would have given this camera 4 to 4 1/2 stars. I missed my previous camera, a Panasonic Super-zoom that had a 12x lens; I fatally damaged that camera when I slipped on a hike. I wanted something lighter and more compact so bought the G12.
Summary: I'm an avid photographer and was very pleased with the camera during the first year of ownership. Finally I encountered problems whereby the zoom did not work at all. It kind of got hung up and stuck. The camera has been pampered and I have never dropped the camera.
Summary: I am thinking of getting a G12 because the G9 has been so good to me. I used a G9 for many years and it has been a great camera. I wished the series were smaller in size but they take great photos and video. The G9 has only a 35mm equilivent wide angle lens, so I must move to a G12. Jim Salih
Summary: Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my SLR and wouldn't trade it for the world, but there are just times when I don't feel like or its just not possibly to carry a full sized body and lenses with me.
Summary: We love this Camera! My wife and I both love to take picutres. Our old camera broke so we bought this one. WOW, the quality is amazing. I definately recommend this camera to anyone. It's light weight and easy to use and upload picture to your computer is simple.
Summary: I bought this camera after using a friends G10. I have a DSLR system that I use for business, but I found I was only "working" at photography and that I had lost some of the fun of it. Not any more. The G12 can go from turn it on and shoot to full manual with all the necessary controls.
