pks1702 Posted October 25, 2009 Share Posted October 25, 2009 My trusty 1D Mk111 (the non focusing issue version ) is great for dedicated photography mainly fast moving but for boating and general day to day a Ixus has been my chosen weapon which does what it says on the tin. However over the last year shots that could have been better with a bit more manual intervention had got me thinking about an upgrade. After research I have gone for the new Canon G11. Robust and with plenty of scope for more creativity a shiny package arrived yesterday I have not had much time to get used to it but a quick stroll today had me loading this to my pocket. So far I am very impressed with the ease of use and image quality. I am interested to see that the pixel count has actually gone backwards on this model from the G10 to reduce higher ISO noise. This has been an area I always thought would be an issue for manufacturers in the ever increasing chase to higher pixel counts. The logic of Algorithms says that noise will increase as pixel count goes up with the rider the bigger the sensor the less effect it will have. Anyway the G11 has in relation to FF sensor models a small sensor but for a P&S this ticks the boxes for me. I will report more when I have had a better opportunity to use it but a couple of snaps from today. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
