pks1702 Posted January 3, 2010 Share Posted January 3, 2010 I have had this now for a couple of months and accept it is expensive as a Point & Squirt camera but you really should not consider this if that is all you want from a camera. By no means is it as flexible as my SLR and where ultimate image quality and creativity are required this would not be in my bag but increasingly over the the last 18 months I have found I take a 'pocket able' P&S where I could not be bothered to take an SLR. The G11 has allowed me more user creativity and therefore as I carry it most of the time more opportunity to get shots I would not normally get. It is solidly built and will come as a bit of a shock if you are used to a normal p&s. The swivel screen I thought was a bit gimmicky but it did allow me a couple of shots that would have been much more difficult with a fixed screen and if you wish it will sit in the normal fixed screen position which is how I tend to use it. Lens is 28-140mm based on 5x zoom. Camera is 10MP compared to the G10 14.7 but in my view has less higher ISO noise than the G10, shooting up to 3200 ISO, the high ISO is impressive even in RAW. The dedicated control dials on the top on the camera for exposure compensation, ISO and Shooting Mode are very easy to navigate. Numerous shooting modes are on this camera from full manual to low light. Battery life is extremely impressive I hardly ever seem to charge the thing up. The all round image quality is very good. There are cheaper compact camera's but if you want a tool that will give you good all round creativity, High ISO and build quality I can recommend this product.
