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.
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.
Summary: The GGS Screen Protector for my G12 does what it is intended for, and I will keep it on the camera. My only reservation is that it prevents the complete closure of the swiveling viewer. It is held out a fraction of an inch.
This optical glass overlay is way better than stick-on film protectors!

Summary: இ Fuzzy Wuzzy's Summary: ѾѾѾѾ Recommended with warm fuzzies. In the past, I have applied various stick-on adhesive-backed plastic film screen protectors to the LCD screens of my Canon 30D, 40D, 7D, SD700IS, SD880IS, as well as using both custom pre-cut and cut-it-yourself plastic films for the...
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.
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.
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.
