Canon PowerShot G11 Review
Canon again have come up trumps on the latest of the G-series, Canon PowerShot G11 10MP Digital Camera with 5x Wide Angle Optical Stabilized Zoom.
|Canon PowerShot G11|
In many respects, the Canon Power Shot G11 is the most impressive camera in our latest compact camera group test. Its controls and versatility are second to none. However, with its high price and less than featherweight design, it can’t compete with the more compact, affordable Canon S90 in our latest roundup. The biggest surprise about the G11 is its excellent high-ISO performance in low light.
The Canon PowerShot G11 10MP has won the 2010 TIPA Awards in Best Expert Compact Camera category.
