The traditional answer for the pro or serious amateur, looking for a compact digital camera that targets their needs. The PowerShot G12 offers RAW or JPEG shooting, choice of eye-level viewfinder or a rotating, swiveling high-res LCD monitor, and image quality that emphasizes performance at higher ISOs. It’s ideal for travel, quick documentary shooting, and even for looking less conspicuous than if using a big, pro SLR. The lens covers an (equivalent) range of 28–140mm, so it’s got users covered for landscapes, portraits, and even close-ups. And, if video is needed, the G12 comes through with HD 1280x720 recording capability.
