The new Canon Powershot G12 takes over the range as the flagship of Canon’s creative compact range.
It maintains the 10Mp sensor and DIGIC 4 processor of the Canon Powershot G11 model but adds a new HS system to allow shooting at much higher resolutions and offers an ISO range that extends up to 12,800. The G12has rapid shooting at up to 4.2 frames per second and offers a 5x optical zoom from 28mm and a close focus of just 1cm for macro shots.
As you would expect the Canon Powershot G12 offers full manual control with customisable front and rear control dials, plus Raw capture for the ultimate in quality and control. The Canon Powershot G12 also adds an electronic level and multi-aspect shooting options to the mix, plus it’s the first G-series to include 720P HD video.
