Canon's G12 is the latest model in the PowerShot G-series of compact digital cameras, widely used by enthusiasts and professionals alike. While outwardly resembling its predecessor, it has a range of new additions. Its High-sensitivity 10mp CCD sensor and DIGIC 4 processor allows exceptional shooting in low-light, while the higher ISO reduces the need for flash and allows faster shutter speeds to reduce blur when the subject is in motion. The lens covers 28140mm (35mm equivalent), and an optical Image Stabilizer corrects camera shake up to 4-stops. Hybrid IS ensures sharp results when shooting macro.
The 7.0cm (2.8in) vari-angle PureColor II VA LCD screen offers superb colour rendition and contrast, and can be adjusted for shooting at awkward angles. An Electronic Level display confirms that the camera is horizontal, while the optical viewfinder allows visual shot composition.
