5.0 out of 5 stars Canon Powershot G12, 3 Feb 2011
By 
This review is from: Canon PowerShot G12 Digital Camera (High Sensitivity 10 MP, 5x Zoom) 2.8 Inch Vari-angle Purecolor LCD (Electronics)
Thought long and hard over this. Wanted compact so was looking at LX5, GF1, Canon S95 and the G12. Finally decided on G12. It is not exactly compact but loved the chunky feel of this little brick. Build is excellent apart from slight niggle about control dial on rear of camera. Using as point and shoot gives very good results but really gets interesting when you realise that this is a serious little camera. Jpegs good but for best results use RAW setting. Very useful ISO range. LCD screen excellent in bright and low light, viewfinder is ok but field of view is limited especially when using filter adapter. Focus fast and accurate with various settings including focus check,lock, face select. Do spend time to learn how to fully exploit all the buttons, dials, menus crammed into this camera and you will realise that you have got yourself a bit of a bargain and enjoy this great little camera. So if you want to move up from a point and shoot or have a DSLR and lots of lenses and dont want to lug all that kit around buy the G12
