CanonCanon PowerShot G12 digital camera review : Canon has an impressive amount of successful camera series. Recently, ten years of the Digital IXUS camera was celebrated, which is still a good seller. The Canon PowerShot G-series is such a camera line that is especially popular among enthusiastic amateur photographers, but also professional photographers that want to have an extra compact camera on the side. Just before the start of the Photokina 2010, Canon introduced its most recent G-model, the Canon PowerShot G12.

Review Canon PowerShot G12 - Advanced camera
With everything you notice that the Canon PowerShot G12 was derived from the well-known EOS DSLR camera. This mini-EOS camera has a user interface that is very similar to the larger system cameras. In practice, this means a lot of buttons, setting- and command dials, to access the desired functions directly. For anyone who does not have much experience in photography it may all appear a bit overwhelming, but the ‘photographer’ will recognize the value in it. A good example is the separate settings dial for lighting compensation and a dial for ISO on top of the camera.

Review Canon PowerShot G12 - Camera lens
The stabilized 5x optical zoom lens has a range of 28-140mm (35mm format), which makes all-round photography possible. Canon introduced a 6x zoom in the G9, but this was without a true wide angle. The 28mm wide angle is very pleasant and we would even like future generations to have a 24mm. The Canon PowerShot G12’s lens performs really well with a minimum amount of visible blurring in the corners. Slight chromatic aberration is noticeable, but it is not disagreeable. It is a fine lens, and its merits were already present in the G11.

Canon PowerShot G12 review and DIWA Labs test
The Canon PowerShot G12 is a wonderful camera for the photo fan, the enthusiastic amateur or (semi-)pro photographer. It is a camera with which you can express your creativity, and a camera with which you can easily and quickly take snapshots as well. We took the Canon G12 with us for a test shoot, and it was tested extensively for technical aspects in the DIWA Lab. Read our full Canon PowerShot G12 review.
