CR’s Take *UPDATE*
CCD? and no HD Video?

Dropped rating on this one to [CR2]. The source is solid, I just have a lot of issue with the spec list. The sloppy whiteout on the LCD too.

In favor of being true *UPDATE*
I do notice the grip on the front doesn’t match any current G camera. The G7 & G9 didn’t have a large grip and the G10’s grip doesn’t curve down. That would be very fine attention to detail for a hoax.

  1. I wonder what kind of reliable information you offer here? Absolutely nothing. I bet your source is your imagination.
    What G11? On some other forums they display 7D fake image.
    What a waste of time. Today was supposed to be big annoucement day from Canon. Where is it? Here is the idea: make a site “CanonRumorsAndMySickMindAndBunchOfLoosersWaitingForCanonsFart.com”

  2. As Sebastian says, LESS megapixels give BETTER image quality. Why does anyone need more than 10MP? The glass on a camera of this type does not warrant huge enlargements. What people want is better image quality in lower light situations, for an average print size (e.g. 4X6 or 8X10).

    High MP counts are just to sell to novice buyers. Canon reduced the MP in order to respond to the buyers for this camera who understand the difference between MP and image quality (e.g. noise).

  3. What I want is a camera that takes great pictures. I could care less about movie mode. It would be nice to have a larger sensor but reducing MP to 10 and increasing low light sensitivity is a good thing. Manufactures of still cameras should concentrate on their still image quality and get rid of movie mode if it at all reduces still picture quality. They should also bring back aperture and shutter speed dials like film cameras. I am glad I waited and can not wait for the G11. yea it would have been nice to have specs like the Sigma DP2 but that camera is about $700.

  4. Looks good to me. If you read any reviews of the G10, you’d know that the biggest problem with that camera was the noise, hands down.

    Canon is making a smart move keeping this line aimed squarely at the keen amateur/pro back up market.
