Canon Powershot G11 10 Megapixel Digital Camera

Discontinued.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
Advanced amateurs who have overwhelmingly embraced the G Series will be delighted with the PowerShot G11, which features RAW mode for unlimited editing options, a 28mm wide-angle lens, and a 2.8-inch Vari-Angle PureColor System LCD.

The G Series Comes Full Circle.
You asked, and Canon not only listened, but delivered big-time. Advanced amateurs who have overwhelmingly embraced the G Series will be delighted with the PowerShot G11, which features RAW mode for unlimited editing options, a 28mm wide-angle lens, and a 2.8-inch Vari-Angle PureColor System LCD. Add to that Canon's new High Sensitivity System and high-speed ISO for incredible image quality, and Canon's top-range compact digital camera is a truly groundbreaking successor.

Image Quality That's Better Than Ever.
New 10.0 Megapixel sensor coupled with Canon's DIGIC 4 Image Processor designed as the High Sensitivity System for improved low light image performance. The PowerShot G11 employs a newly-developed, 10.0 Megapixel High Sensitivity System by combining a powerful CCD sensor and Canon's DIGIC 4 Image Processor. Thanks to this technological advancement, the G11 is dramatically more sensitive than cameras with identical megapixel counts, and delivers spectacular images with minimal noise. Increased sensitivity demands a higher ISO speed, and the PowerShot G11 delivers with a new maximum setting of ISO 3200. Blur and camera shake are notably reduced for the ultimate in sharpness and clarity.

In addition, a new Low Light mode lets you capture images in an astonishing range of conditions. The camera automatically adjusts the ISO speed from ISO 320 to ISO 12800 in relation to ambient brightness, subject movement and camera shake.

Creative Power in Your Control.
Full range of shooting and recording modes including RAW + JPEG for the ultimate creative control. The PowerShot G11's RAW mode lets you shoot images without JPEG compression. It gives you clearer images and complete creative control in editing. RAW images are transferred directly to the computer where they can then be edited using image adjustment software or a processing application to adjust your images as you please. The camera can also be set to allow the simultaneous recording of both RAW and JPEG images while shooting.

Also, with 26 Shooting Modes, you're ready for whatever shot comes your way.

A View That's a Pure Pleasure.
Large, bright 2.8-inch Vari-angle LCD with 461,000 dots for shooting at a variety of angles plus an optical viewfinder. The PowerShot G11 gives you a large 2.8-inch PureColor System LCD screen for excellent control when framing your shots. But size is only part of the story. Canon's PureColor System LCD offers spectacular color, resolution and contrast even at an angle. The screen is durable and easy to see. It is a perfect feature for gathering friends and family around to see your images.

The Creative Freedom You've Wanted.
A host of optional accessories including Speedlite flashes, underwater housing and Tele-Converter Lens are available. The PowerShot G11 is compatible with the Speedlite flash series intended for all EOS series SLR cameras. Attach a Speedlite flash to the hot shoe, then you can set and control the flash on the "Flash Control" menu in the camera. With a Speedlight, the G11 is given extra functions such as autoflash metering, FE lock and Flash exposure compensation; continuous shooting with external flash. Also Canon's Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2 enables you to have multiple slave flashes and wireless control. A Tele-Coverter lens designed for the G11 and WP-DC34 Waterproof Case are also available.

Get More in the Frame.
A high-powered Wide-Angle 5x Optical Zoom (equivalent to 28 - 140mm) with Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer gets you up close and personal to your subjects. The camera is equipped with a long, 5x Optical Zoom, and Canon's own Optical Image Stabilizer Technology keeps images steady and blur-free all through the zoom range - even in low light - by detecting motion and generating a corrective signal. Because it is an optical system, more corrective movement is allowed and there is no degradation of image quality.

The G11 is a highly versatile camera with a wide-angle zoom lens that reaches all the way from 28mm at the wide end to 140mm at the telephoto end (35mm format equivalent). You'll capture more image in every shot, and add greater depth to your overall photography.

A World of Advantages With Canon's New Technology.
DIGIC 4 Image Processor improves the overall camera performance. DIGIC 4 Image Processor
Canon's proprietary DIGIC Image Processors have long set its cameras apart from the competition, and the new DIGIC 4 sets the bar even higher. Faster, more accurate noise reduction delivers better image quality, even at high ISO speeds.

DIGIC 4 Image Processor

iSAPS Technology is an entirely original scene-recognition technology developed for digital cameras by Canon. Using an internal database of thousands of different photos, iSAPS works with the advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor to improve focus speed and accuracy, as well as exposure and white balance.

Diagram of Photographic Space

A new Face Self-Timer automatically detects an increase in the number of faces and makes the appropriate adjustments. For instance, to include a photographer's face in a group shot, there's no need to rush in. Just put the camera on a stand or tripod, select the Face Self-Timer, and the camera will wait for the photographer's face to get on-camera before it takes the shot. Motion Detection now tracks moving subjects in a much larger range, and the new Servo AF retains focus on a moving subject after the shutter button is pressed halfway - allowing you to wait for the perfect shot without refocusing. Also, Face Detection and Motion Detection are markedly improved.

Intelligent Contrast Correction
DIGIC 4 also makes possible the new i-Contrast (Intelligent Contrast Correction) system, which controls the compensation level in pixel units to brighten dark areas while leaving bright areas unchanged for better images where the main subject is dark, and more natural transition. The PowerShot G11 can even use i-Contrast in playback mode to adjust images that were shot without the setting activated.

Red-eye Correction provides options for removing red-eye from subjects in flash pictures.
1) The Red-eye Correction during shooting actually identifies and corrects red-eye in human subjects as pictures are taken.
2) The G11 can be set to automatically detect and correct red-eye during image playback.

Life doesn't give you second chances to capture special times. That's why the G11 features ISO 3200 to reduce the effects of camera shake and sharpen subjects in low-light situations, giving you greater shooting flexibility.

Sophisticated High-Definition Still and Video Features.
HDMI output for viewing still images on an HDTV. If you long for the convenience of an advanced still camera that also creates superb movies, the new PowerShot G11 lets you record video in beautiful high definition. The camera also makes it easy to enjoy HD movies (and still photos) on your HDTV with a mini-HDMI connector for direct connection to a high-definition monitor or HDTV. You'll enjoy the HD experience with no degradation of image or audio in the signal.

Instant Creative Control.
Improved Smart AUTO intelligently selects the proper setting for the camera based on 22 predefined shooting situations. Just set the Canon PowerShot G11 to Smart AUTO and you're ready for maximum enjoyment from your picture taking every time. It's a relaxing and satisfying way to shoot because you can completely concentrate on your subject knowing that the camera has the technical details covered. Advanced Canon technology intelligently analyzes your situation and shooting conditions. Then it automatically selects an appropriate setting from specially defined settings. So whether you're photographing flowers, a captivating sunset, or your friends at the park, you can be confident that you're getting dramatic, memorable images.

4 out of 5 stars   One Great Camera
By Keith (USA) September 01, 2010
Review submitted for Canon Powershot G11 10 Megapixel Digital Camera (CNPSG11)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great Zoom, Short Lag Time, Good in Low Light, Good Image Stabilization
Cons: Too Large / Bulky
Other Comments: I have purchase the G11 to use it as a dive camera. Althought I have not had the oppertunity to use it myself, I have seen the results with fellow divers and am most impressed. The low light feature plus the camera's ability to focus underwater is great. Otherwise it is a little bulky, but how much could you squeeze into a small package. I would have prefered to use 4 each AA batteries, but the Li battery has enough life for two dives.

5 out of 5 stars   All Canon Powershots are good.
By Alicia B. (Bronx, NY) July 30, 2010
Review submitted for Canon Powershot G11 10 Megapixel Digital Camera (CNPSG11)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Nice Body Color, Great Zoom, Versatile view screen, Good Image Stabilization
Cons:
Other Comments: All of the Canon Powershots are excellent. Perfect all in one Camera. I had 3 of them since 2003. Be careful with the view screen. My fault errors is that I kept leaving the view screen on the outside instead of turning them in and they got damaged. But perfect camera for everything, expecially taking a picture of yourself by yourself.

5 out of 5 stars   Great P&S camera with pro features.
By oly-oly-oly (San Francisco, CA) July 04, 2010
Review submitted for Canon Powershot G11 10 Megapixel Digital Camera (CNPSG11)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Excellent image quality, Good Image Stabilization, Manual Controls, Good in Low Light, Long Battery life, Great Zoom
Cons: None
Other Comments: I'm a serious amateur photographer, and take about 2000 photos a month. I use dSLR and m43 cameras, and find that the G11 is unique. It's truly portable in a coat pocket, and has a very useful zoom range. The image quality is excellent for a small sensor. Shooting RAW, the depth of information is not as robust as with a larger sensor, so you may find post-processing a bit limited. However, the fact that RAW is an option is fantastic.

5 out of 5 stars   Great camera
By charlie (pottstown, pa) June 30, 2010
Review submitted for Canon Powershot G11 10 Megapixel Digital Camera (CNPSG11)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Short Lag Time, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light
Cons:
Other Comments: I shoot weddings and on site portraits using a Canon 5D and a 20D as a backup. Great cameras, but too bulky for travel and use in an amusement park. I got the G11 to fill this gap. Good image quality and very easy to use. The relatively small size makes it comfortable to carry around without causing neck pain. I picked up a lowepro case and slid it onto a fanny pack belt and found this to be a great way to have hands free and still have the camera handy. The 4gb card holds over a 1000 images so you can snap away all day. With cameras like this I tend to take snapshots and am not as careful with posing and such. I am still very pleased with the results as the quality is there if you take the trouble to use it.

2 out of 5 stars   Canon G11 Camera
By flower power (Beeville, Tx) May 29, 2010
Review submitted for Canon Powershot G11 10 Megapixel Digital Camera (CNPSG11)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light
Cons: Difficult to Use
Other Comments: I choose this camera because I wanted a view finder as well as a pull out monitor. It takes very good pictures. It has no place to really grip it, also it has too many buttons in the wrong places. Every time I open the monitor I touch the function button. I have always had Canon cameras and was very satisfied with the quality. But because of the location of the function button I do not recommend it.
