for $150-200 a good staff

unworld, Ebay
6 January 2013
  • Summary: Good but a bit oldfashioned. Old design, small viewfinder.. Strange style but we used it some years ago and were satisfied. Now it is possible to but it for less. And it is a good deal.

Awesome camera, no wireless remote.

  • 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.

Split Personality

  • Summary: I shot exclusively with a G12 for a year. I finally moved to a Micro Four Thirds system for reasons I'll get into later. But the fact that the G12 didn't quite meet my needs in no way diminishes my general opinion of it as an excellent camera. The G12 is solidly built.

awesome!

  • Summary: I'm very happy with the g12. It's a very complete compact camera. If you don't want a professional camera but want to take some quality pictures with lots of manual controls, you'll sure enjoy it! The only thing I really mess is the interchangeble lens ability.

very good but not excellent

  • Summary: very good camera in global but I thought the pictures would be better with iso 800 to 3200. Also there is no screen like the canon powershot G5.

For beginners and intermediates

  • Summary: My usual cameras are DSLRs with heavier bodies and lenses. Sometimes I want to be a less serious photographer or just want to carry less equipment. The Canon G12 is a camera that is pocket sized and takes reasonable photos. The camera's only big negative is the viewfinder.

best of the point and shoots

Cerise, Amazon
23 August 2011
  • Summary: I'm a serious photographer who knows what she's doing. I wanted a small, light weight point and shoot to have with me when I don't want to carry around my big SLR. I tested the G12 against the Lumix LX5. Although the Lumix had slightly better image quality the rest of the G12 won out.

Best since my 35mm Olympus range finder.

Utah Ron, Amazon
23 June 2011
  • Summary: I've had 35mm SLR systems for 40 years. The old case used to hold two Canon Bodies, a gaggle of lenses and accessories, and in a little out the way pocket I stuck an Olympus rangefinder. Like many photographers I used the rangefinder for street photography and walk around stuff.

Just What I wanted

Alan T., Newegg
13 May 2011
  • Summary: 1)Surprised how small the camera is I thought it would be larger. 2) Newegg packing is disgraceful. A handful of peanuts - No bubble wrap to protect a $500 camera. I have had $50 hard drives wrapped better in bubble wrap. 3) Confusion on which accessories I need, lens bellows,UV lens, lens cap?
  • Pros: Beautiful camera, a super nice upgrade from G2. I feel guilty about spending so much on myself.
  • Cons: a) Price b) NO manual 9who wants to print out a 200+ page PDF
