"Canon has launched the PowerShot G12 premium compact, successor to PowerShot G11 released last year. Inheriting most of the core features of the G11..."
Canon today announced two compacts, and the first is the G12, successor to the G11. While mostly a minor update, there are some nice additions, starting with a front command dial, making the G12 a two dial camera, which is much faster to operate (incidentally like the recently announced lookalike Nikon P7000). There's a new 2.8" HVGA LCD on a swivel arm, and the camera now records 720p videos at 24 FPS. Like all of Canon's new compacts, built-in HDR is available (shudder) The megapixel count and lens remain unchanged, at 10 megapixels with a 5x zoom lens at 28-140/2.8-4.5 equivalent. The camera will be available next month for US$499.
