Good camera but get insurance

faithbygrace, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: I purchased this camera for $379.00. I had to buy a smart card because it only came with a 16 meg card and a camera bag for a total of $421.00. BestBuy didn't mention insurance and I did not buy any insurance. After using the camera for 8 days, I was taking some pictures in the rain and I clicked the snapshot button and I heard a pop. I saw what looked like a leaf on the viewer screen. I couldn't see or take any more pictures.

"miserable tiny controller wheel at back."

  • Pros: solid build decent image quality and movable LCD and RAW as well as a sort of viewfinder, crude but sufficient in bright light conditionis
  • Cons: noisy above ISO 200 ..small sensor issues of course. The control wheel at back with its buttons is too easy to set manual focus and so forth

Good Camera but Could be Better

Michael D. Newcomer "Photography Junkie", Amazon
3 January 2011
  • Summary: I know no one likes to hear a less-than-stellar review, but I have to be honest about this camera. It's a good camera, and as long as there is plenty of light, it takes dSLR quality photos. However, it seems anything over ISO 400 is objectionably noisy. I can usually fix this in Lightroom, but then you lose sharpness, and re-sharpening adds back in noise of its own. A 100% view on your photos will reveal the noise at these ISO levels.

A good camera but...

Peter, Amazon

  • Summary: Although this is a good camera we are having problems with it in terms of pictures not being "straight". We think the reason is that the pull out screen (which is useful for taking shots "above the head" as it tilts) tends to make the camera lean to the left very slightly when a picture is taken and the result is not the picture is not straight.

Bought it as an upgrade from the G10

  • Summary: The difference from the G10 is very noticeable, first bought it because of the 720p video, which the G10 lacks, but the software and capturing modes also evolved. Although it has the HD video capture, I was extremely disappointed with the lack of autofocus during the recording, which, in my opinion, is a obligatory. Serves well when filming still shots, but very limited when zooming, great for musical concerts though as it has an acceptable sound capture.

  • Summary: Verdict says: expensive so get entry level dSLR. NO! Because it would not be small and it wouldn't have a swivel screen. dSLR's get left at home because they are unwieldy and lumber you with a huge should bag.
  • Pros: Hi quality Canon lens AND swivel screen for macro use, etc.
  • Cons: Design slightly nerdish. Heavy for size. Ideal zoom is 24mm-180mm EQV.

Best G camera yet!

  • Conclusion: This is my all around camera. I use it any time I do not need a longer lens. The quality of pictures, ease of use, excellent construction of this camera makes using it a joy. I have had a number of G cameras over the years and have always been happy with them, but the G-12 is superior to all previous models. The performance in low light, the rapid response, and the beautiful pictures resulting make it the best all around camera available today.
  • Cons: Easy to use, Excellent results, Great accessories, Solid Construction

  • Excerpt: Действительно, если не хочешь заморачиваться с постоянными настройками - лучше выбрать другой фотоаппарат.
  • Cons: Пользуюсь 2 года. Поворотный дисплей не работает при развороте и складывании к корпусу, показывает перевернутое изображение. На объективе появились царапины. Вспышка в автоматическом режиме при недостаточном освещении редко срабатывает.
