Good: easy to use

Comment: good compact a little expensive
Good: Picture quality and price.
Bad: Not added feature to replace lenses
Comment: This compact G11 is a great little camrea. If your looking for highend photoâ€™s go out and buy a highend DSLR. I shoot all types of photos from portraits to macro and everything in between. When Iâ€™m out on a shoot I lug a bag of photo gear that would brake the back of the weak, now I take one DSLR and my Canon G11 as a back up to get the job done. The G11 is a fun lovinâ€™ work horse. Iâ€™m about to do a shoot with an up and coming fashion model, I will start the job with my G11 to put it to the test, so far the G11 can hold itâ€™s own up against the big DSLRâ€™s. Iâ€™m a Nikon guy and realy like the Canon G11. It getâ€™s the job done and does it well.
Good: Sturdiness of the body.
Bad: Video - not as sharp as Canon G9 video
Comment: Replaced my G9 with this G11 - mainly only shoot RAW - found far less noise at ISO80 with this camera than the G9. Best part is having all the major controls on top of the camera like ISO, exposure etc. Could never contemplate having a jpeg only P&S camera, this one gives you total control when RAW shooting. However the wide angle jpegs also come in handy for certain landscapes.
Video is a let down. Assumed it would be similar to that obtained from the G9 but I found it distinctly unsharp which basically means I wont be using it. Tried another copy of the G11 and found that to be the same so it looks like the problem is not me!
Software wise the supplied Canon RAW converter(DPP) does a good job with colours, sharpness and any CA. Well pleased.
