Canon PowerShot G11

 

Canon's flagship compact camera gets a less powerful sensor...wait, what?

Canon has taken something of a risk by reducing the sensor resolution of the PowerShot G11, but it has paid off handsomely. The G11 all of has the build quality, features and performance for which the G-series is rightly renowned, and the image quality...

Canon PowerShot G11 review

 

The G10's successor has bravely lowered its sensor to 10MP. But is it still king of the compacts?

The most serious compact has taken a step forward by taking a megapixel step back. It could be smaller, but it’s still beautiful

Canon PowerShot G11 digital camera

 

We've not come across many – if any – digital camera upgrades that have taken a step back in terms of "specification". So is it really worth spending as much, or more on the G11 than an interchangeable lens camera such as Panasonic's GF1 or Olympus...

Solid feel construction, vari-angle LCD, better results at higher ISOs than we’ve witnessed from competing brands (if staying at or below ISO 3200)

Standard definition video, still priced the same as an entry level DSLR (albeit a cheaper option than buying DSLR plus lens with equivalent focal range)

So is it really worth spending as much, or more on the G11 than an interchangeable lens camera such as Panasonic’s GF1 or Olympus EP-1, or a full-blown digital SLR with standard APS-C sized sensor?

Canon G11 review

 

The most hotly anticipated compact camera of the year

Great low light performance ; Impressive image processing ; technology ; Advanced creative options, including RAW ; Quality metering an autofocus ; 5x optical zoom and swivelling LCD

Uninspiring looks ; Can feel bulky and awkward ; Easy to activate buttons by mistake ; Image preview can be sluggish ; No HD video

Canon PowerShot G11 review

 

The Canon PowerShot G11 is the advanced compact camera you can turn to if you don't want to buy a digital SLR.

With a solid construction, comprehensive feature set and manual control, as well as rangefinder-like dials, the Canon PowerShot G11 gets good results at ISO 3,200 or below. It's not cheap, however, is a little bulky and lacks HD video.

Ben costruita e facile da usare, la PowerShot G11, dotata di tutte le funzioni manuali di cui necessitano i fotografi, è lo strumento perfetto per lavorare con precisione e discrezione. Lo zoom 28-140mm (equivalente) e il sensore abilmente limitato a...

Canon PowerShot G11 better than ever

 

Already quite impressive the G10 was highly recommended, but now we would even push things on saying that the G11 is a “Must Have” for any serious photographer who want to carry something “light” along with them… Capable to offer great picture in a...

Daniel Lezano reviews Canon's competitive compact

The Canon PowerShot G11 proves to be very capable at delivering high quality images that stand up for comparison against those taken on a DSLR. Its 5x zoom range can’t match the Fuji, or stand up against an interchangeable lens range, but it’s...
