The Canon G12 is the Canon G11, Plus a Little More

Canon G12 Digital Camera

The Canon G12 is another new camera that updates but doesn’t add much to its predecessor, the G11. (Perhaps like the Olympus E-5 to its older E-3 sibling, the G12 cannot anymore improve much on its previous model? Are we reaching design maturity, perfection?)

There’s a new command dial, though, front of the Canon G12, making it more familiar with Canon DSLR users. And perhaps the new HD 720p movie mode with stereo sound recording of the G12 is worth mentioning because it used to be only VGA video and mono audio with the G11.

Oh yes, the new high dynamic range (HDR) shooting mode is also there now with the G12. It records three successive shots, in bracket mode, with varying exposures, and combines them in-camera to create a single HDR image.

Other than those, the G12 is pretty much the same as the G11: 10MP sensor, 2.8-inch tilt/swivel LCD screen and 5x zoom lens that offers 28-140mm zoom range. Even the price tag is the same: $500, set for shipping starting October 2010.
