Does it have a stereo jack for external mic ? What about zoom and focus during video shooting ? I did not see those specified. The bottom line is that for shooting stills I don't see enough new features or performance improvements to merit getting a G12. But if they have done a good job with video then I might have to re-think that.

I was wandering the same things. It's a shame that movie mode is 24 fps and not 30 fps,
at 720. I don't understand why they have crippled this camera?

Does this G12 support the TC 80 timer controler?

But OK, I wait until is available. Then I will compare it with the Nikon P7000.
I have a strong feeling that Canon this time has given to little for this G12.

Good luck.

Image quality will trump all "features". Let's see how they compare.


RF 24-70 f/4L IS | RF 50L | EF 35L II | EF 40 f/2.8 pancake | EF 85 f/1.4L IS | EF 100L IS Macro | 600EX-RT x 3

I really don't understand why Canon and Nikon are pushing video features so hard, at the expense of developing features for still photography. I mean, if I wanted to shoot video, I'd buy a dedicated video camera. Outside of sensor-dependent limitations (e.g. dynamic range), the priorities are completely different - still photographers value things like sync speed, FPS, greater AF coverage/speed/accurac​y, and so forth, while videographers value things like being able to shoot at 24, 29.94 and 30fps. Furthermore, the opportunities for showcasing video are so much less frequent - you can produce prints of still photos, or scroll them in a digital frame or online gallery, whereas most people will view a video clip once or twice, then forget about it. It's not something that you can hang on the wall and just appreciate... Apart from basic video for emergencies (which is really just an extension of Live View), best to have a still camera dedicated to stills and a video camera dedicated to video, rather than some in-between device which does a mediocre job at both.

No smaller body, no bigger sensor, no faster (and dust proof) lens, no good EVF (optical is total useless), no Full HD... "New" G stinks old age...

It is time to treat lightly snail-C and go to lively rivals. :confused:

I think Nikon surprised Canon with the P7000. But, like a previous poster said, image quality will trump all. We'll have to wait and see.

I do think, as I've said before, that Canon has purposely crippled the feature set. After all, why would they want to hurt sales of the Rebel series, and cripple their lucrative interchangeable lens platform?

I am new here and to photography.
I like my G11 but would also like a bigger sensor and dust proofing. I don't want to learn videography I want to learn photography.

Mmmmm, will be interesting to see how the G12 image quality compares to the current cropp of compacts with interchangable, faster lenses and larger sensors.
Like MFor stated, looks a little old age, the technology coming from some of canons competitors is fantastic.

Rene, I have been a solid Canon person for many years, but recently purchased a Olympus E-P2 with the VF-2 viewfinder. What can I say, except a great camera, and I hate to put it down. Sure, more expensive than the G12, but with a 4/3 sensor and outstanding viewfinder, it is in my opinion superior to the G12 in every respect. This said, will stick with my Canon DSLR for more challenging work (however, it may not see as much use as previously!)

Typically the first filter on an SLR is a UV filter.. if for nothing other than to protect the glass. Does anyone know if you can get some kind of filter for this line for the same purpose?

Yes, both cameras support an adapter tube that lets you mount polarizers, filters, or other specialty lenses. Google Lensmate and you'll see how that system works.
