Canon G12 Leak from CNET Asia


We were wrong about the sensor in the G12, makes sense that it’s identical again to the S9x camera.

The G serie is good quality build.
We use a G2 at the factory where's a lot of dust.
I would prefer a 24-105mm range as on the 5D kitlens.
24mm is only found on few IXUS camera's.

Pretty tame updates. Not much to compell the upgrade.

madbutcher's absolutely right; a 24-105 would be fantastic on the G series.

the more canon fails to really differentiate the G series from the S9x series, the less reason there is to go for the G.  it's bulkier, uglier, heavier, has a slower lens, roughly the same frame rate, and exactly the same sensor.  what's the point?  I have a G9 as my backup cam that I love but if I were to update today I would go for the S95

I would take that announcement with a grain of salt. The CNET announcement of the S95 said that it was using a 10mp backlit CMOS sensor. It seems to me like CNET is speculating a little bit here...

I see your point, particularly about the narrower aperture lens. Of course the manual features on the G12 are far superior in terms of handling. It's time for Canon to put a bigger sensor in the G series and differentiate it more. For a camera of that size it's a shame they don't. I agree that the S95 overall is a more attractive package due to its size and profile.

I think if I didn't have a DSLR, the few differences that the G series has (ex: ergonomics, flash shoe) would make me consider it more.  But I already have a DSLR and so something more like the S95 appeals more to me personally because of the smaller size and faster lens.  Looks like a fun camera though!

I'm surprised people didn't see this coming. Last gen both the S90 and G11 used the same sensor, so of course they were going to this year as well. I'm disappointed they didn't give them both a 1/1.7" 10mp backlit CMOS, it looks like they recycled the last years sensor with some extra processing to give it HD, HDR, etc. I guess that's why they called it the S95 and not the S100. If the G series could use half increments in the same I'm sure they would have.

Sure would like to see a high end P&S like the Ricoh GR Digital III with a fixed 28mm f1.9 lens. I don't need no stinkin' zoom lens 8-D If a small company like Ricoh, why can't Canon?

Pity... But Canon has no problem with that :) Of course very soon they will understand it was very miserable update and will announce CMOS backlit G14 in some 6 months. Remember G10->G11?

We did see it coming. That's why it looks so conservative and represents such a boring update. As micro 43 continues to gain share, these lame updates will cause this segment to suffer greatly.

The jog wheel on the front looks like a nice new feature. I presume it will be assignable to most variable functions?

Hm... A CCD sensor + HD recording.. Could that mean -- no rolling shutter ?? :o (doubt it tho)

I like the new front wheel, should make the DSLR crowd feel more at home.
