G12 not worth buying, problems

Wacko, Amazon
27 January 2013
  • 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.

Canon G12 scratches its own lens

blufftaylor, CNET
20 August 2012
  • 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?

"The lens is scratched because the cover rubs against it"

  • Summary: Addition: I will continue cutting the score to a second The reason is that I was disappointed with the picture quality. I thought at first that it was me who did not take pictures correctly but is now starting to realize that the camera is indeed so. When I look back at my photos I took with my previous old Canon A710, I discover that the images were sharper! Yet another photo shoot finds that it has a poor ability to focus.

Serious reliability issues

Anon4567, Amazon
3 December 2012
  • Summary: I have always been impressed with canon compact cameras, yet my G12, despite great care in handling, has developed a fault such that it does not respond to the zoom or menu controls. My experience with this camera does not appear to be unique. I would advise potential buyers to Google "Canon G12 freezes" before purchasing a G12. Mine has failed just after the warranty period has expired, Amazon will not help, and I have now contacted canon for assistance.

  • Excerpt: Купила, сооблазнившись на отзывы - очень жалею !!! Для "чайника" - кумарненький аппарат, постоянно надо настраивать, иначе фотки - отвратительные! В темноте ему много света - вспышка не срабатывает, включаешь принудительно - лицо - белое пятно получается. Крутить постоянно настройки - это для профи. А когда хочется сделать быстро снимок получается ужас! Только в солнечную погоду получаются более приличные фотки. В помещении (квартира, кафе, клубы...
  • Pros: Не вижу.
  • Cons: Сплошные недостатки для простого обывателя.

Dålig

Beatles, Prisjakt
24 August 2012
  • Summary: Tillägg: jag fortsätter sänka betyget till en 2. Orsaken är att jag blev besviken på bildkvalitén. Jag trodde till en början att det var jag som inte tog bilder på korrekt sätt men börjar nu inse att kameran verkligen är så. När jag tittar tillbaka på mina foton jag tog med min förra gamla Canon A710 upptäcker jag att bilderna blev skarpare! Ännu en fotosession konstaterar att den har dålig förmåga att fokusera.

no la recomiendo

Ciao

  • Excerpt: La compré, la tuve una semana, y despues de mas de 500 fotos la devolví. Es una cámara con todas las prestaciones habidas y casi diría por haber. Robusta, solida, buena ergonomia, buena disposición de botones y ruedas, buenos accesos directos, buena pantalla, etc...el problema para mi son dos: precio excesivo para tratarse de una compacta y fotos de calidad justa. No entrare a valorar el tema de la cromática de Canon, que para gustos los colores..
