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. I also encountered other problems whereby the camera would not focus. The focus gets hung up.
Excellent - and here's the installation trick to prevent breakage

Summary: Excellent screen protector and far superior to 'film' screen protector products. There are really no instructions specific to installation on a Canon G11/G12 and as previous reviewers have noted, the glass may break if the screen protector is installed incorrectly and the screen rotated or closed.
Summary: It is very great! I don't want to carry the DSLR with me all the time since those are a bit heavy and not convinent. However, G12 can be a substitution for DSLR because its good quality on picture and it is light to carry when you visit some places.
Summary: I loooove it sooo much!!! It takes great pictures!! I have a 550D, its too heavy to carry around. so i decided to get a lighter camera, but took same quality pictures. Then my friend recommend G12 to me. Now I absolutely loove it! thanks!
Excerpt: My initial feeling about getting the G12 over a DSLR was one of 'settling' for a compact. When I came across one at Bestbuy for $379 in a recent trip to Michigan (new, unopened!), I couldn't resist so I pulled the trigger. It did not disappoint. DSLR-like controls and image quality that surpassed my expectations. An absolute no-brainer at this price point.
Summary: I like it for so many reasons. But if Canon won't fix this, it's not worth owning.
Pros: I love this camera. Lots of pro-level control, small enough to carry with me always. I agree with the many people who rank this one highly. That's why I bought it., Except for the fatal flaw, noted below.
Cons: The lens cover blades scratch the lens. Incredible, but true. I compare with every G10, G11, and G12 owner I meet, and scratches such as mine are common., Canon, how can you do this, and not acknowledge it?
Summary: I bought this camera mainly for the one feature that ended up missing on it, a wireless remote. I had a Pentax with an IR wireless remote that finally died, so I did research on the internet for a replacement. This camera consistently received high marks and in the technical features it indicated the camera had a wireless system. Unfortunately, it doesn't. Other than that, no complaints. The picture quality is superb. The flash does a great job in low level light.
Summary: i like everything in this product. the picture quality i excellent. overall very good camera for those money. in auto mode it makes superb pictures and in manual there's only your imagination. i think pretty close to DSLR.
