1.0 out of 5 stars This Camera is a Big Disappointment, February 26, 2010
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This is my 4th Canon and Im not sure why I keep buying them. The first 2mp one I had took the best pictures of everything I shot (except macro), the last one I had was the A650 12mp camera and it was the best overall but getting kind of beat up so I sprung for the G11. Dont believe the other reviewers, this camera takes horrible pictures. The battery life is also bad. I took it out the first full day on vacation with a newly charged battery and after a few hours of off and on shooting the battery died. This happened a few days in a row with different batteries. I was expecting better quality pictures even with the lower resolution but better processor but I was sadly mistaken. The A650 which Canon discontinued for some unknown reason pictures were sharper and took better low light pictures by far. I have not experimented with the non auto settings much except the low light setting which knocks the image size to 1824×1368 which is unacceptable to me. The camera feels solid and looks nice and has the swing away LCD, but that is really not as important as picture quality. I am very bummed out and wish I could get my money back………….. I still cannot believe the first Canon I ever had took excellent pictures of EVERYTHING!! Not sure what they were thinking of but somehow their RD decided to make higher mp cameras over the years with successively lower picture quality, which is a mystery to me. I am an amateur photographer and have won several awards for my pictures, all with point and shoot cameras……
