Important Note: the G11 was replaced by the Canon PowerShot G12 (compare ).


Its body is not small and at 375 grams, definitely not light, its zoom is just enough to fit the bill and, ehh, it doesn't have HD video. What were the guys at canon thinking? Have they gone mad?

The answer is, well, no. Once in your hands, you'll never want to put it down. It fills you with a fealing that you can never again go wrong in anything you do (at least photography wise). It has dedicated control dials for ISO and Exposure Compensation, it has a swivel LCD, and it shoots RAW. That's not all - it takes decent photos at high ISO. How decent? How high? I'll tell you this much - it's the best you'll get from a compact (chubby as it is) camera. It's almost sad that it's being replaced. Not that the G12 is not better. Au Contraire. History is ever being written, and it looks like the G11's chapter in it is a glorious one.
