Responsive and stylish, the Canon PowerShot G11 Digital Camera represents the 9th generation of the PowerShot G-series and offers professionals and advanced amateurs superior control and imaging capabilities. The coupling of a 10 megapixel CCD sensor and Canon's DIGIC 4 Image Processor dramatically increases light sensitivity while reducing noise. High ISO 3200 capability makes it possible to capture critical shots even under poor lighting conditions. A 2.8" Vari-Angle LCD returns to the G-series allowing users to compose and review images at almost any angle.
Retro and ergonomic, the G11 features classic control dials to change the exposure mode, exposure compensation, and ISO. The "quick control" dial on the rear of the body mimics the design standard of Canon EOS SLR cameras. At just 1.9" thin and weighing about 12 ounces, the Canon PowerShot G11 offers the control of an SLR in the compact and easy to carry body of a point and shoot.
High Performance Imaging
By combining a newly developed 10 megapixel CCD sensor and Canon's advanced DIGIC 4 Image Processor, the PowerShot G11 offers dramatically more sensitivity with lower noise than previous PowerShot models. Increased light sensitivity with a maximum setting of ISO 3200 reduces camera shake and subject movement for crisp photos with spectacular sharpness and clarity.
5x Optical Zoom Lens
With an equivalent zoom range of 28-140mm, Canon's 5x Optical Zoom Lens captures everything from sweeping landscapes to stunning portraits with ease. Advanced optical technologies ensure consistent brightness and clarity throughout the zoom range, while special coatings minimize ghosting and flare.
Boasting a 2.8" Pure Color LCD screen, the PowerShot G11 makes framing and reviewing photos and video an absolute pleasure. The Vari-Angle design and 461,000 dots of resolution offer spectacular color, contrast, and detail at virtually any angle. Adjustable, durable, and easy to use, the new LCD allows you to compose up high, down low, and everywhere in between.
