CanonCanon PowerShot G11 digital camera : Canon announce the launch of the feature packed Canon PowerShot G11 digital camera, the successor to the multi award-winning PowerShot G10 - the favourite compact of professional photographers. Professional photographers will benefit from the Canon G11’s greatly expanded dynamic range. Canon’s new Dual Anti-Noise System combines a high sensitivity 10.0 Megapixel image sensor with Canon’s enhanced DIGIC 4 image processing technology to increase image quality and greatly improve noise performance by up to 2 stops (compared to PowerShot G10). The Canon PowerShot G11 also includes i-Contrast technology, which prevents high-light blowout whilst retaining low-light detail - ideal for difficult lighting situations.

Canon PowerShot G11 camera features
The premium quality Canon lens delivers picture-perfect performance, offering a 5x wide angle (28mm) zoom with optical Image Stabilizer (IS). This allows handheld shots to be taken at much slower shutter speeds (4-stops) than conventional non-IS models - allowing perfect shooting in darker conditions or at a lower ISO. The Canon PowerShot G11 also greatly reduces blur caused by camera shake, photographers can shoot at longer focal lengths and in lower light conditions without the need for a tripod.

The Canon PowerShot G11 digital compact camera includes the ability to shoot in RAW format and is compatible with Canon’s Digital Photo Professional (DPP) software, ensuring that photo shoots can be easily integrated into a photographer’s workflow.

Photojournalist in warzones about the Canon PowerShot G Series
Commenting on his use of the predecessor to the Canon PowerShot G11, the PowerShot G10, Gary Knight, acclaimed photojournalist and co-founder of the VII Photo Agency, said: “As a photojournalist who covers warzones, one of the main challenges I face is getting high quality images in hostile environments. To achieve this I need a camera that offers great image and build quality without the bulk, and the PowerShot G series is perfect for this purpose. When shooting in areas of conflict, it’s important to have a compact camera in my bag that allows me to work discreetly but also provides the level of quality required to get the photos I need. The Canon G Series excels in this respect, delivering great quality images from a compact body that is less intimidating than that of an SLR.”

Canon G11 a compact camera for professional photographers
Alongside superb image quality, the compact size of the Canon PowerShot G11 camera and a 2.8-inch vari-angle PureColor II VA LCD (461k dots) make this digital camera the ideal choice for professional photographers to use where an SLR is impractical or obtrusive. The Canon G11 is ergonomically designed for faster, accurate menu scrolling. Analogue style dials for ISO and exposure compensation give photographers instant, familiar access to common settings and features.

Canon PowerShot G11 deals with any light condition
The Canon PowerShot G11 digital camera is equipped to deal with any light condition. Low Light mode enables photographers to shoot up to ISO 12,800 in reduced 2.5MP resolution at 2.4fps capturing brilliant shots indoors without the need for a flash, whilst a built-in Neutral Density (ND) filter decreases light levels by 3 stops allowing creative control in bright conditions.

Canon PowerShot G11 offers maximum flexibility and great image quality
Stephen Munday, Senior Operations Director, Editorial, Getty Images, comments: "The quality of images delivered by the Canon G Series are so good that we use PowerShot G10 images within our editorial library, and our photographers using the G series models because of the image quality and flexibility they provide.”

Canon PowerShot G11 ideal for photojournalists
Stephen Munday continues, "The unpredictable nature of news photojournalism requires our photographers to get shots in all kinds of situations, and the size of the Canon G10 allows them to do that without drawing too much attention to themselves. The low-light capabilities of the new Canon PowerShot G11 will be of even greater help in that respect, as it will allow our photographers to shoot high quality images without flash in even more situations."

Canon PowerShot G11 flash speed
The camera’s highest flash synchro speed has been increased to 1/2000th seconds, reducing the possibility of overexposed bright scenes. A real time histogram displays brightness levels on the PureColor II VA LCD screen, so photographers can easily view conditions and change settings when shooting.

Take the Canon PowerShot G11 with your wherever you go
“I’ve been a user of the G series since the G5” says Edmond Terakopian, photojournalist and winner of the British Press Awards Photographer of the Year and a World Press Photo award for Spot News. “Recently I’ve been using the Canon G10 which is absolutely spot on; image quality, usability, reliability and build quality are all excellent. It’s the one camera that’s always with me, no matter where I am; whether on or off duty. I know I can rely on this camera to help me get the picture, no matter what. Over the years I’ve used my Canon G Series cameras on the occasions when assignments have needed discretion. It’s a satisfying feeling telling a picture editor that the photograph he’s just complemented was from a compact camera.”
