Update September 14, 2009- Canon Philippines, the G 11 will retail for P33,950 – official word from www.philstar.com
For me the G11 still looks like the G10 except for it’s swivel screen. I am still hoping for good results of it’s new low light high ISO images. Keeping those fingers crossed. In the meantime, head on over to Engadget for the initial hands on with more images of the new high end point and shoot.
Here is another hands on from Akihabara News. Theirs is more detailed with actual images from the G11 taken around the Japanese city. I liked the review-realistic. Proves that Canon will not make a point and shoot to replace their entry level DSLR line (1000D, 500D). If you want a superb little camera that takes great photos on the fly this is it. If you want to shoot HD video, get a lower end consumer point and shoot or video cam. If you want a larger sensor that takes billboard size photos then get the upcoming 60D or the ready and available 5D MK II. I have a G7 that’s 2 years old and still love it.
The question is: prosummer point and shoot or DSLR? For me it’s prosummer P&S for daily bring around while doing anything and DSLR for actual commissioned work.
An exciting announcement for point and shooters. So hold off on the new camera purchase the new Canon G11 will be released end of October-it will be a good Christmas. Instead of going over the roof with an even larger mega pixel (last count, the G10 was 14 mp) the new cam is going for better image quality with just 10 mp.
The only thing I really want to know is how noiseless the new low light feature is. That swivel screen is also a great plus. Hopefully there will be some hands on review soon. Read on with more info from Canon USA.
New 10.0 Megapixel sensor coupled with Canon’s DIGIC 4 Image Processor designed as the High Sensitivity System for improved low light image performance.
The PowerShot G11 employs a newly-developed, 10.0 Megapixel High Sensitivity System by combining a powerful CCD sensor and Canon’s DIGIC 4 Image Processor. Thanks to this technological advancement, the G11 is dramatically more sensitive than cameras with identical megapixel counts, and delivers spectacular images with minimal noise. Increased sensitivity demands a higher ISO speed, and the PowerShot G11 delivers with a new maximum setting of ISO 3200. Blur and camera shake are notably reduced for the ultimate in sharpness and clarity.In addition, a new Low Light mode lets you capture images in an astonishing range of conditions. The camera automatically adjusts the ISO speed from ISO 320 to ISO 12800 in relation to ambient brightness, subject movement and camera shake.
The next G series from Canon looks exciting (according to the rumors flying around the net). Can’t wait for the actual images of the cam. In the meantime…
