G12 Summary

Canon's PowerShot G12 digital camera is a direct successor to the PowerShot G11. Even though the Canon G12 isn't a compact digicam, it's a lot smaller than even a small dSLR, and even more compact than most mirrorless cameras. The Canon PowerShot G12 retains the same 5x optical zoom lens which offers 35mm-equivalent focal lengths ranging from a useful 28mm wide-angle to a 140mm telephoto.
