The Canon PowerShot G12 is a digital compact camera, released in late 2010. As the successor to the PowerShot G11, this camera adds 720p HD video recording at 24fps. Other improvements include a backside-illuminated HS System 10 megapixel CCD sensor, a DIGIC 4 processor and a 2.8-inch LCD screen. In terms of optics, a 5x zoom lens with teleconverting capabilities comes in the box. Compared to its predecessor, the G12 produces better macro shots due the incremental upgrades it has received. In addition to JPEG shooting, RAW files are also supported by the PowerShot G12. Also, an all-new HDR mode has been integrated, allowing operators to take shots without the need for post processing. A rechargeable lithium-ion battery is included in the box.
