Canon Powershot G12
Is it a compact? Is it what wise men know as “a bridge camera”? Whatever it is, bald statistics don’t do justice to the G12. It’s got a ten-meg sensor, 5x optical zoom and shoots 720p video – all very 2009. However, as its size, pro look and price tag attest, the lens, image processor and creative versatility of this camera are all a cut above the compact(-ish) norm. Producing stunning images for such a small thing, even in low light, this is a serious and superb piece of kit.
