Hi:

I have both the G-11 and the G-12. I find the G-11 is great and so is the G-12. But, the G-12 has greater video capabilites. I suspect the price differance is duw to Canon stopped production on the G-11 and they are getting hard to find. I recommend you buy the G-12. There is NO downside I can find and both have an optical viewfinder though I never use it. I prefer the view screen.

The first thing I noticed when I picked up the G12 was that it was lighter. I think there are more plastic parts than my G11. Which is OK for me. I shot some macro of eBay stuff yesterday and there isn't any difference that I can tell. As usual, sharp from corner to corner. Really the only reason I upgraded to the G12 from the eleven was I like to have the latest and greatest. This is my third G series camera and I love them.
FYI the HDR mode needs a tripod. There isn't an alignment algorithm, so I am still bracketing 3 shots.

So I hear Mr Brown saying there are macro focus issues. Can you give more detail. i shoot glass beads and jewelry using macro (I have a G10) and was going to move to the G12 but now you are giving me pause based on the macro issue.

Mr. Brown, do you have a recommendation over G12? Nikon P7000? I desperately need a small size cam as a supplement to my dslr.

Thanks

Thanks for the info. Still don't understand why an out-dated model would cost more than the new one -- unless supply and demand works automatically.

Please excuse my lack of professional photo vocab...I am a new g12 user/owner and a student in a digital photo course....our last hw assignment was to take a photo of someone..portrait and to set the camera so that the background blurrs out....so I set the g12 on Av mode and tried many different fstops but never got the background to blurr. Can you do it on the g12? My teacher says that on some point and shoots you are not able to do it..and he is not familiar with the g12...I have a camera specific class at a BBros store in June and can ask then but am curious.
thanks for any help.
