Canon PowerShot G12 Point & Shoot Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Canon PowerShot G12 is the latest model in the company's esteem flagship G series that has been highly popular, designed to satisfy the demands of enthusiasts who want a powerful compact or a pocketable backup to a DSLR. It is the successor to the PowerShot G11. Canon PowerShot G12 shares a number of key specifications with its predecessor, including a 10 Megapixel sensor, 5x (28-140mm equivalent) zoom, fully articulated 2.8in screen, full manual control, flash hotshoe, RAW recording, and a retro-styled body that's packed with physical controls. The upgrades that Canon PowerShot G12 has to flaunt over its predecessor are 720p HD video with stereo sound, in-camera HDR, Hybrid Image Stabilisation, Dynamic Range enhancement, Tracking AF, new special effects, a choice of aspect ratios, an electronic levelling guide, finger control dial, finer ISO increments, and support for an optional filter adapter. There may be nothing revolutionary in this list, but put together they represent a fair upgrade over the earlier G11, addressing some criticisms of that model, while also delivering a couple of nice surprises.

Design and Build Quality

Canon PowerShot G12 is virtually unchanged from its predecessor. Like Canon PowerShot G11, it's a solid block of a camera which borrows design cues from classic rangefinders to greatly appeal to photographic enthusiasts. Measuring 112mm x76mm x48mm and weighing 401g with battery, Canon PowerShot G12 is certainly a substantial 'compact' and requires a coat pocket or small bag to accommodate it. Indeed, Canon PowerShot G12 is comfortably the biggest and heaviest of its rivals. Panasonic's Lumix LX5 measures 110mm x 66mm x 26mm (WHD), or 43mm thick if you count the protruding lens barrel, and weighs 271g including battery. Meanwhile, Canon's truly pocket-sized PowerShot S95 measures just 100x58x22mm (WHD), or 30mm thick with its lens housing, and weighs 193g including battery. In terms of controls, Canon PowerShot G12 is virtually identical to Canon PowerShot G11 - as such it's packed with physical dials which would put many DSLRs to shame. Indeed there's no fewer than three on its upper surface alone: a recessed dial on the upper left to adjust exposure compensation (in a range of +/-2EV), and a two-tiered dial on the right with sensitivity on the lower dial and the exposure mode on the top. In a nice update, the G12's sensitivity dial now spreads its values around the whole circumference, allowing finer 1/3EV increments to be set.

Focus and Face Detection

Talking about autofocus, tracking AF option displays cross-hairs in the middle of the screen which should be placed over the subject you want to track. Then after pressing the AF area button, the camera will attempt to follow the desired subject. Canon PowerShot G12 automatically enables Servo AF in Tracking AF mode, allowing it to continuously adjust the autofocus until the point of capture. In use this worked pretty well, managing to track a variety of non-human subjects and keeping them in focus. It's a welcome addition to the Canon PowerShot G12 focusing modes. Servo AF can be independently selected for the other focusing modes if you need continuous AF capabilities. Canon PowerShot G12 additionally offers Blink Detection, which as its name suggests, can spot when a subject has blinked at the moment the photo was captured. This works in practice, briefly displaying a blinking face icon in the corner of the screen as a warning immediately after taking the photo. It will however only work if the subject in question has already been acquired by the face detection system. Blink detection is also exploited in the new Face Timer mode which we'll detail in the drive section later.


Lens and Image Stabilization

Canon hasn't seen any reason to update the lens, so PowerShot G12 features the same 5x optical zoom as its predecessor, delivering an equivalent range of 28-140mm and a focal ratio of f2.8-4.5; the actual focal length is 6.1-30.5mm and we counted 14 discrete steps when zooming from wide angle to telephoto. The closest focusing distance in Macro mode with the lens set to wide is just 1cm, the same as Panasonic Lumix LX5, which allows both to focus much closer than the 5cm of the PowerShot S95.

Screen and Menus

Canon PowerShot G12 inherits the fully-articulated 2.8in screen of its predecessor, which was one of the best features of Canon PowerShot G11, although the panel has been updated to Canon's latest PureColor II VA. A 2.8in screen may be a tad smaller than the 3in models on Canon PowerShot S95 and Panasonic Lumix LX5, but all three share the same 460k resolution to deliver an image which looks much more detailed than average 230k monitors.


The body remains the same, so it is not a huge surprise that the camera is powered by the same NB-7L rechargeable Lithium Ion battery pack as its predecessor, which Canon estimates is good for 390 shots with the screen or 1000 when exclusively using the viewfinder which is roughly the same as Canon PowerShot G11. The battery compartment is also home to the SD memory card slot; we used a Lexar Professional 133x 8GB SDHC card during our tests. Both the card and battery become blocked when Canon PowerShot G12 is mounted on a tripod.

Video Mode

Canon PowerShot offers three video resolutions: 1280 (which shoots at 1280x720 / 720p), 640 (which shoots at 640x480 / VGA) and 320 (which shoots at 320x240 / QVGA). The 320 and 640 modes record at 30fps, while the 1280 mode records at 24fps, although plays back at 30fps. Recording will stop when the file either reaches 4GB in size, or a second short of 30 minutes in HD mode or one hour in the 640 and 320 modes. You're more likely to come upagainst the 4GB file limit first in the HD mode, with a 4GB card being good for around 25 minutes of uninterrupted 720p footage. Like all recent Canon cameras, the G12 encodes its video using H.264 and stores it in a QuickTime MOV wrapper; we found VLC Player most successful at playing these under Windows. Canon recommends using SD cards rated at Class 4 or quicker for recording movies.


Canon PowerShot G12 employs a 1 /1.7in CCD sensor with 10 Megapixel resolution; this is the same specification as its predecessor, although the sensor has been upgraded to support HD video. In a world where resolutions steadily increase, we applaud Canon for sticking with a sensible resolution here in an attempt to offer improved low light performance. It's also the same strategy taken by Panasonic with the rival LX5.


5x zoom with 28mm wide and 1cm macro.
Flash hotshoe, RAW files and full manual controls.
Great quality 2.8in / 460k articulated screen.
Superb controls, build and ergonomics.


Slow continuous shooting at full resolution.
Can't optically zoom while filming.
Lumix LX5 and PowerShot S95 compelling alternatives.
No longer smaller than a camera with a DSLR sensor.
