Canon PowerShot G12 | Digital Camera Review | Storage and Energy
Just like Canon compact cameras, the Canon PowerShot G12 supports the SD-format memory card as a storage medium. In the meantime, a new generation of SD format cards is available on the market: the SDHC has a maximum of 32GB, while the SDXC (SD eXtra Capacity) is taking the lead in capacity. The SDXC card is available from 48GB and up, and will increase to an impressive 2TB of storage capacity in the coming years.

Canon PowerShot G12 - JPEG & RAW files
The Canon PowerShot G12 takes JPEG format images, and can also save them in RAW format. The latter is the preference for many photographers, but it also means that you have to invest more in storage capacity, as JPEG can be saved much compacter. The prices of the memory cards have decreased considerably in the past few years, only SDXC is still a bit pricey, at the time of writing. I would personally go for a minimum of a 4GB card, and preferably an 8 or 16 GB SDHC.

Canon G12 equipped with USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface
The Canon PowerShot G12 has been equipped with a fast USB 2.0 Hi-Speed interface. It transfers pictures at a high speed. The speed of the Canon G12 is stable and fast. If you want to make things simple for yourself, and don't want the hassle of working with a cable all the time, you might want to purchase a fast USB 2.0 High Speed card reader, which does not require connecting the camera. It's fast, easy and saves battery capacity.

Canon PowerShot G12 battery
The Canon PowerShot G12 comes with an NB-7L Li-Ion battery included, with a capacity of 7.4V 1050mAh. Recharging the battery takes about 2 hours and 20 minutes. The amount of shots that can be made depends on the use of the LCD display. According to the CIPA calculations (standard measurement method), about 390 shots can be made with a fully charged battery.
If you turn off the display and only shoot with the viewfinder, you can take about 1000 shots with a full battery. That is a remarkable difference. An optical viewfinder is not such a bad idea in this situation.
