CanonRumors has an interesting little tidbits post of which one of the more interesting bits for me was the mention of the Canon G12.
Like many photographers, I love the Canon G series. My G10 was a beautiful little piece of equipment. It was capable of gorgeous image quality, especially when I used off-camera flash with it. High ISO wasn’t bad for a little compact sporting almost 15 MP, and contrary to some people’s opinions, I found even ISO 800 quite usable in a pinch.
Enter the G12. Rumor has it that the G12 will have a CMOS sensor. This should be HUGE for noise levels. We should see a significant gain in the high ISO image quality.
Rumor also says the G12 will have HD video. Well, that’s hardly earth shattering. I was surprised the G11 didn’t, but none the less, 1080 HD in the G12 will be welcome.
I look forward to seeing the latest addition to the G family. Remains to be seen how soon we’ll see it, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see it appear for Photokina.
