Canon G12 with HD Video now official
Already impressive, the G11 has a nice little camera to play with but after seeing what Canon did with the S95, we were anxious to see what they had to offer on their new G12.
Among the nice little upgrades like the 720/30p video capability, Canon DIGIC 4, a 2.8″ LCD, and 5x optical Zoom, Canon succeed in adding a 10Mpx backside-illuminated HS sensor, Hybrid IS, improved Macro mode and even HDR.
The Canon PowerShot G12 has a large, bright 2.8-inch vari-angle LCD with 461,000 dots of resolution providing photographers with additional creative control whether holding the camera overhead or low to the ground. A new control dial has been added to the front of the camera as well for easy adjusting of camera settings similar to how users operate a Canon Digital SLR camera. Further adding to the overall appeal of the new Canon PowerShot G12 is a 5X-Optical Zoom lens with Optical Image Stabilization and its wide-angle capabilities starting at 28mm, which will help when trying to get a sweeping landscape into one image. When using compatible optional accessories such as Speedlite flashes, an underwater housing and a tele-converter lens the photographic possibilities for users of this new camera are almost endless.
The estimated selling price of the PowerShot G12 is $499.99 and will be available in early October.
