Like a G(6X2)

So I guess you've heard that I got myself another baby :D My third baby to be exact, after the first and second babies I got last year (Y) Thanks to Mummykins, I'm now officially a proud owner of Canon G12!


It comes with a casing, 4gb memory card, and a mini tripod.

It's one of the latest product from Canon’s “G” series point-and-shoot cameras released last year, a successor to Canon G11 and the king among Canon compact cameras. It’s big, bulky and looks quite old fashioned but that's what I love about it, something different from the usual compact cameras. It is one of the top performance cameras and one of best point-and-shoot cameras for shooting video as well since it earned the highest scores in our video-quality testing over the past year and the list continues. From all the reviews that I've read so far, it's more to its awesomeness rather than its flaws. So, I guess it isn't a mistake buying it cause it is really worth the purchase (: 

It's been a week since I started using it, all that I can say that it's kicking ass. Even my friends love it. There are still a lot more to explore about this little precious thing in order to take great pictures and it would be great if I could learn more from someone who can teach me to make full/good use of all the features available. Besides, the G12 offered oodles of really fun scene modes to play with such as colour accent, super vivid, posterize, HDR, and fish eye, miniature, and nostalgic modes.They even have image parameters to make your skin tone lighter or darker! & thanks to the swivel screen, now I tend to camwhore more than I used to cause it's just so convenient ~ 

Pros:
+ Easy to use
+ Autofocus works great and fast and with an excellent accuracy
+Superior image and video quality
+ Superb blend of automated and manual controls
+ Adjustable, swiveling LCD screen ♡♡♡
+ Fun-to-use creative scene modes ♡♡♡♡

Shots from different modes/scenes: 

#1. Fisheye
#2. Foliage in vivid colours
#3. Poster effect
#4. Super vivid
#5. Nostalgic - you can actually the intensity of nostalgicness that you desire!
#6. Miniature
#7. Colour accent - where you keep only selected colour and the rest will be in B&W
All in all, Canon G12 would be good enough for someone like me; who wanted the manual features of a DSLR but couldn’t afford to commit to the larger and more expensive format. It is indeed an excellent camera to learn on and it's a great companion to a DSLR-wielding pro. From what I read, the closest rivals to the killer Canon G12 would be Nikon Coolpix P7000 and Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 but still Canon will be my choice cause it sure is delighting me always (;

P/S: Should I go post my photos extra large or large? Hmmm

Updated: Apparently, CleverMunkey claimed that the cons that I stated previously are not the cons so I guess this camera is really a good-ass? :DDD

no RAW shots in Auto n maximum aperture of 2.8 is not a cons at all! Currently the kit lens for DSLR is only 3.5 and the ability of shooting RAW files is better than any other digital camera in the market... so what's the cons? HAHAHAHAH

HenRy LeE ® said...

Wow I think this one has better and more different modes compared to EPL-1 :D But now I'm going for lomo-camera, so basically my semi-pro is left behind and dusty.

G12 is a good camera! It's one of the best for pro-consumer camera. While I like S95, I think G12 is a good buy too. Enjoy your photography!
