PowerShot Cameras / Re: G12 & SX30 Officially Official
« on: September 15, 2010, 06:27:33 AM »
35x zoom starting at 24mm? That's crazzzzzy. Why can't the G12 start at 24mm? Would it's IQ be compromised?

Either way, I think the P7000 gives the G12 a run for the money:

This new G12 looks good but I think the Nikon P7000 might have the edge:

I sure hope so, but it doesn't look like it...

I'm very interested in this new lens, except for the weight and the price! Oh well..

I think it may be time to grab the non-L 70-300mm IS now:

Been waiting for this one for a long time. To be honest, a bit disappointed, but I still think it'll be a hell of a camera.

Wondering if I should unload the 50D now in order to get a better price...which would mean waiting a month until I can get one of these babies. At least HK usually gets camera bodies earlier than the rest of the world...

Been shooting Canon compacts for about 8 years now, and I've kept track of just about every one! Nice new cameras, but nothing overly exciting. I wrote them up on my blog here:

The SX line is moving in the right direction. I don't know what the hell they were thinking with the SD4500 IS...

This is a pretty boring update if true. The G series needs the old f/2-f/3 lens. If they did it on the G6, why not the G12? Perhaps it's the wide end slowing it down.

There is at least one CR3 for sure: our man is getting married in September and it might result in probable new "body releases" ;-)

You know you're a freak when you're counting down the days to a rumored announcement date... ::)

"Doubles the sensitivity of the sensor"

Does that mean they will be going from 3200 tops to 12800 tops? Or does it mean 2 stops improvement in noise performance? What exactly, I wonder...?

It's always exciting to see pictures! If true, I think the new body will be a welcome addition. For one, it stands out from the rest of the range - its almost a hybrid of the 7D and 550D, and hopefully the best of both worlds. Except it looks like the viewfinder is still pretty small. Bummer. LCD should be AWESOME though. I really miss that from my G6.

I made a blog post a while back about my wish list for the 60D (and my predictions):

I can't believe I doubted the swivel screen hype...

Oh well, still not confirmed yet, can't wait for the official press release. These things always keep me up late at night  :-\

Congrats! Only one day for your lady??? No honeymoon? Live streaming the wedding sounds super cool...

I'll be at Photokina too. Check your email...

Seems like Canon wants to stick with the main power switch under the mode dial on APS-C cameras like introduced with the 7D. To be honest, I think that's a totally stupid place. Every single digital Canon camera I owned so far could be conveniently switched on and off either with the thumb or the index finger of the right hand, while holding the camera in the same way while shooting. With the power switch on the "new position" you definitely need your left hand for switching on and off. To me, that's a step-down in ergonomics.

Fully agreed.

The only button that is missing is the (rather useless IMHO) picture style button as far as I can see.
No - wait - there's no direct print button!
Is this the one that you desperately are looking for?

Bottom right looks like a direct print button. But I can't find a delete button anywhere. Also, I wonder what's going on with the top left button? Looks like the joystick has been replaced by a 4 way controller around the set button also?
