Canon PowerShot G11

 

Canon's G-series of advanced point-and-shoot cameras have long held a place somewhere between small point-and-shoots and full-featured SLRs.

Very nice design ; Very good low light performance ; Very good image quality ; Great flip-out LCD screen

Lost some nice features from the G10 ; Rear buttons too easy to accidentally push

The G11 will appeal to point-and-shoot users who are ready for more power, control, and quality, but don't want to carry around a camera with the bulk of an SLR.

Canon PowerShot G11 Review

 

The Powershot G series has represented a fairly formidable presence at the top of the compact camera tree. From a keen photographer point-of-view, there's little on the market that can match its mixture of zoom range, lens flexibility, build quality...

Very good all-round image quality (albeit without the G10's excellent low ISO resolution) Generally good high-ISO performance for a compact camera, surprisingly good high ISO raw output Flexible lens range with effective image stabilization Very little...

Rather slow lens (in terms of aperture) by traditional G series standards Movies limited to VGA resolution High ISO images lose saturation and detail (and offer no control over noise reduction) Focus prone to hunting (and focus failure) in low light at...

The G11 is the latest in a well-established line of compact cameras aimed at enthusiasts and, with its large-bodied, retro styling it would appear to be just as aspirational at its predecessors. However, there's hardly a niche left in the camera market...

Canon PowerShot G11 Review

 

The Canon PowerShot G11 is the newest member of Canon's serious compact camera range, predominantly aimed at the DSLR owner looking for a backup compact or the enthusiast who wants DSLR functionality without the added bulk. At first glance the Canon...

Priced exactly the same as its still current predecessor in the G10, the G11 offers the advantage of a flexible LCD screen plus higher ISO options. If neither is particularly important and a higher resolution will serve better, then the older G10 is...

), and while some of its specs seem like a step back, the changes are mostly for the better

Very good photo quality ; About a full stop advantage over most of the competition in low light ; Nice 5X zoom lens with 28 - 140 mm range (though a faster aperture range would've been nice) ; Optical image stabilization ; Well built, rangefinder-style...

Some useful features from the G10 are gone: remote capture, Auto ISO Shift, voice recording ; Continuous shooting mode won't win any awards for speed ; Movie mode is just VGA, with no use of optical zoom ; Ergonomics aren't great: cluttered buttons on...

When glance at the comparison table between the PowerShot G10 and G11 that I posted at the start of the review, you might think "wow, what a step down". While the G11 is missing some features from the G10 and has a smaller LCD and a slower burst mode,...

Review: Canon PowerShot G11 camera

 

The G11 is a camera that will appeal to point-and-shoot users who are ready for more power, control, and quality, but don't want to carry around a camera with the bulk of an SLR.

Like previous G-series cameras, the G11 is a very sturdy, very attractive small camera bristling with controls and dials. Clad all in black, the camera measures roughly 4.5-by-3.5-by-2, and its rectangular slab design fits easy into a larger coat pocket
