After the resounding success of Canon PowerShot G11 last year, Canon has brought out its successor to take things to the next level. The Canon PowerShot G12 we received for review, has everything that its predecessor had, including the 10MP CCD sensor resolution with RAW, 5x optical zoom, 2.8-inch swivel LCD screen, the optical image stabilization and the DIGIC 4 image sensor. What is different is that it features better design with EOS-style control dial, 720p HD video recording, SDXC card compatibility and tracking autofocus.
While the bundle is good, it would have been better to include an HDMI cable to connect to an HDTV. Also, you may find yourself running out of space with the 4GB card especially while recording HD videos.
