I have to admit I'm quite surprised there is not a lot more G12 action on this forum - I would figure photo posting (and chat) would be 4x as much as I've seen... just a bit odd, I'd think there were more G12's out there or something...

I use my G12 a lot for macros, but I don't want to flood this thread so I just post every once in a while.

The G12 is like yesterday's news, when compared to the shiny new G1 X. I see even less posting for my G9 and G11, but they are now ancient by comparison. We apparently only like to talk about the newest equipment.

Ths is one of my first shots with the G12. This camera is so versatile for a hobbyist like me.

Very nice. The G Series make wonderful travel cams for most situations.

Thanks -- yup, I agree! (obviously)

Like this a lot - interesting contrast between the unkempt ground and the lovely wood-work & flower arrangement

Thanks! Yeah, now that I've gotten a decent handle on the G12, I'm like a walking advertisement for it. Have spent the last two days with a couple who left their SLR at home and just brought a P&S on their travels, and they were v. interested in my G12. I hope I sold them on it ;)

Here are a couple from yesterday. I keep thinking I'm want to sell this camera, and then I take it and shoot with it for a day and am pleased with the results. For the bee photo, I handheld the camera, resting my wrist on the tripod head, so I could pre-focus on the flower and just wait until the bee flew into the photo. The second photo, was on a tripod.

I'm looking at getting a G12 soon. Has anyone tried to shoot some long exposure night shots with stars?

mmmm... I'll just take that as your interpretation. Looking at the EOS Forum - just on this page at the time of my posting here

https://photography-on-the.net/forum/forumdis​play.php?f=9

- there are people posting on the XSi thread (a DSLR from 2008), T1i (2009), the 5D classic (2005), T2i, 1Ds Mk 1, 1D mk II, 1Dmk IV, etc

hey if folks don't want to post shots and talk it up about there G12 - fine by me. But the G12 is a top tier P&S in its class (sensor size) and I think its worthy of much more visibility. I want to get it this year as a small but fully capable wide-angle & walkaround shooter in my pocket when I'm also carrying my 60D & 70-300L. I dislike changing lenses 'on the move' and that's where a P&S like the s100 or G12 comes in.

Cheers ~

Wow. that is some enviable detail inside that flower jutting out. Nice capture.

Makes me think: forget about buying a macro lens or kenko tubes for my 60D - spend the money on a G12...

I was seriously considering getting the G1X, until I shot again with the G12. The G1X does not do macro and that is really one of the most interesting things that the G12 does. It also does a great job of in camera HDR. This was the same place on a different day. In camera HDR on a tripod.

I gotta tell ya folks! I got my G12 and a Nikon D7000 at the same time, and I love this little Canon. I had reservations at first about keeping it, but everyday, I am more glad that I did! This camera is perfect for when I can't take a big camera bag! I do not feel like I am leaving anything behind when I pick the G12 up! So impressed...

Same here....although my DSLR is a Pentax K-5 (also K10D + Km) but I picked up the G 12 to carry around as my daily camera.....use the DSLR's for serious stuff when I don't mind carrying around all that weight.

I carry the G 12 in a small LowePro slingshot bag.....only other thing in the bag is a Canon 430 EX 11 flash....which although almost as big as the G 12, really complements the abilities of the G 12.

This combo in the bag...with an extra card and battery...and I'm ready photographically...alm​ost for anything.

Same here. My Pentax dSLRs (K20D and K200D) pretty much stay in the studio these days. The G12 goes with me everywhere else, and it gets better every time I use it (or so it seems). Together with a lightweight carbon fiber tripod, it's the most pleasurable camera I have ever used. And it's a serious camera, too!

I've been neglecting my G12 since I've only had my 60D for a few weeks. I do love it for flowers, etc., so almost macro.... more close-ups, I suppose. Here's one of my personal favorites:

I've posted it before, so if you've seen it... sorry about that.

My G12 is my go everywhere camera, when the 5D MkII and 1D MkII are too much to care. One from last week, not that it is a great image but I did have the G12 in my vest pocket: http://www.flickr.com/​photos/rider1046/71966​86436/ (external link)

G12 is liberating from the heavy 5d2 and the 7d. For those non planned walking around kinda shots I love the G12
