A couple of weeks ago I asked you about reasons not to buy the G11. There weren't any dealbreakers, so I bought one. Thanks Bruce for handling this for me.
I shot all photos at Lotusphere with the new camera, and apart from the first two dozen shots they all came out very well. I quickly learned how to handle the camera, and I never have to go to the menu after setting up two custom preferences for C1 and C2.
Today Ute and me shot quite a few photos with the Nikon D70 and 18-70mm kit lens, as well as with the Canon G11. And I like the results from the G11 better. Handling of the D70 is way superior. I can shoot a photo from cold start in less than a second if I see an opportunity. The G11 needs at least five seconds to extend the lens and focus and even longer to correctly frame the photo. But when I looked at the final results in iPhoto, I always preferred the G11 photos.
Looks like the G11 will get a lot of mileage.
Most excellent and similar results to my own; pictures just look better on the G10/11!
Can you quantify the better look? Does Canon silently add sharpening to the edges?
Another happy G11 owner... I am happy too and put my two DSLR to rest (for most of the time).
I have bundled my G11 with a compact flash with eTTL Cable.
That's perfect marriage for indoor "snapshots"
I am still looking for that perfect casing or bag. My old school leather casing looks great, but it's not very practical.
I use a Canon DSLR for my photography work, have been considering a G11 as a for personal use, holidays, nights out etc... where I don't always want to drag a DSLR bag around with a load of lenses. Was impressed with the one I played with at the Canon Show in London last year. Problem is I also want some new lenses for the DSLR!
I am happy to hear this. So i didn't promise to much. The only little problem is the time until the camera is ready to shoot. The DSLR is ready in 1 sec. But the qualitiy is really great. With the Canon G11 Canon has reduced the Megapixel and this is the right way to do it. Who wants to make posters for large walls ? But the hight ISO is interesting for the people. But then they don't need flashes and the pictures look better tahn with a flash light in the front.
Volker, eine Frage, sind die Fotos von der Eröffnung des Apple Stores in FFM (Bilderstrecke auf heise.de) auch mit der G11 gemacht?
Ja, das sind sie. Ich habe die Kamera für genau diese Situationen gekauft.
This looks like a nice camera. Amazon reviews of the G11 are overwhelmingly positive.
I might listen to your advice this time. I did not listen to your advice about the Blackberry Bold vs. the Storm and I bought the Storm phone. It is a really frustrating phone. I almost threw it into the lake at Lotusphere while trying to tweet on it.
Bummer on the Storm. I was pretty clear about that. ;-)
I purchased a G11 shortly before Christmas and have been delighted with is performance, other than the Low Light Mode. I like the package because it is easily handled for shooting and easily carried about without becoming a boat anchor like a dslr would be. It has taken me a few weeks to work through all the options and features to determine which best fit a given situation. I don't need more than 10 megapixels and the performance in reduced lighting (except as mentioned above) is great. That was my primary reason for buying the G11. For me, this is the perfect camera.
Mine is on the way & arrives on Friday. Very excited & glad to see you like yours. Are you still happy with it?
