Canon G12 with HD Video now official

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.

PowerShot G12 Digital Camera
As the feature set of the PowerShot G-series has evolved, the one mainstay has been the camera’s ability to provide complete creative control to the photographer. Keeping with tradition, the PowerShot G12 offers a full range of shooting and recording modes with new, exciting features such as High Dynamic Range (HDR) scene mode. Offering added flexibility to photographers, this scene mode allows for multiple shots to be combined into one image helping to capture the full magnitude of a scene that consists of very dark tones and bright highlights producing greater image details. With the use of a tripod, one push of the shutter button yields three sequential images with various exposures, and then combines them into a single optimized image. A feature such as this typically requires outside software, however, this process can be completed within the camera thus helping to eliminate one critical step in the creation and editing process. Another valuable addition to this new model is Canon’s Hybrid IS technology that compensates for angular and shift camera shake, helping to create a near perfect image.

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.

    the G11 looked pretty good, so the G12 might finally persuade me to upgrade from my much older Canon camera – I previously put it off as some of the G series added features but stole others! I’ll look forward to a detailed review.
