Canon PowerShot G11 Review


Price as reviewed:



In the world of advanced compacts, the G series from Canon has long been regarded as one of the best. While the models aren’t always as small as some other advanced compacts on the market, the sturdy design and advanced feature-set mean that they are always a popular model – either as a DSLR companion or as a more advanced model in a standalone capacity. The G11 continues this rich tradition and the improvements over the G10 are well received. The reduction of resolution means that noise is much better controlled at higher ISO settings, while the vari-angle LCD screen is one of the best on the market. So, while obtaining a G11 does mean parting with a substantial whack of cash, if you do decide to purchase then you’ll undoubtedly be bagging yourself an excellent camera that should last many years.
