Canon have introduced the new Powershot G11, a powerful compact camera offering exceptional image quality and a professional level of flexibility.

This camera is more than just a compact camera, with 10MP, vari angle LCD, HDMI and the ability to take great shots in a variety of lighting conditions. Working with the high-sensitivity image sensor, Canon’s DIGIC 4 processor delivers vastly improved noise performance across the ISO range. Shoot full-resolution images up to ISO 3200, or expand to ISO 12800 in (2.5MP) Low Light mode.

In shooting or playback, enhanced i-Contrast optimises dynamic range according to the scene- retaining detail in shadows and preventing overexposure of highlights. The result is natural images with the best possible contrast.
