Canon adds their latest flagship digital camera to the award-winning G Series line – the PowerShot G12. The camera offers the advanced amateurs best-in-class flexibility and all-round premium performance, together with professional levels of control and support for a wide range of accessories.

The G12 is still loaded with powerful technologies that have made the G Series cameras so renowned, like the Canon HS SYSTEM for exceptional low light performance, 2.8-inch Vari-angle PureColor System LCD with an optical viewfinder, and RAW mode. Now, this flagship camera paves the way with new upgrades like 720p HD recording with stereo sound, High Dynamic Range, Electronic Level, Tracking AF, a Front Dial and much more to give you even more creative control than before!

  • newegg Canon HS SYSTEM The Canon PowerShot G12 employs the Canon HS SYSTEM by combining a high-sensitivity 10.0 Megapixel CMOS sensor and Canon's DIGIC 4 Image Processor to deliver spectacular images with minimal noise. Beautiful low light shots are possible at both low and high ISO speeds. With a new maximum setting of ISO 3200, blur and camera shake are notably reduced for the ultimate in sharpness and clarity.
  • newegg 720P HD Shooting and Playback via HDMI The Canon PowerShot G12 is capable of recording video in stunning high definition (1280 x 720 pixels) with stereo sound. The camera also makes it easy to enjoy HD videos (and still photos) on your HDTV with a mini-HDMI connector for direct connection to a high-definition TV monitor.
  • newegg Canon Hybrid IS By employing both an angular sensor and an accelerometer, Canon's highly advanced Hybrid IS corrects camera shake from two sources (the blur caused by the angle of the camera and the "shift blur" that happens when your subject moves parallel to the camera), delivering sharp, blur-free images even when you zoom in close to your subject.
  • newegg 5x Wide-Angle Optical Zoom (28-140mm) with Optical Image Stabilizer The Canon PowerShot G12 features a versatile 28mm Wide-Angle 5x optical zoom lens that allows you to shoot most scenes from wide-angle to telephoto. When it's time to take a closer look, the Canon Optical Image Stabilizer helps minimize camera shake and reveal almost every detail.
  • newegg A host of Optional Accessories Support The Canon PowerShot G12 is compatible with the Speedlite flash series intended for all EOS series SLR cameras. Attach a Speedlite flash to the hot shoe, and you can set and control the flash on the "Flash Control" menu in the camera. With a Speedlight, the G12 is given extra functions such as autoflash metering, FE lock and Flash exposure compensation, as well as continuous shooting with external flash. Also Canon's Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2 enables you to have multiple slave flashes and wireless control. A Tele-Converter lens designed for the G12, Filter Adapter FA-DC58B and WP-DC34 Waterproof Case is also available.
  • newegg High Dynamic Range Canon developed the High Dynamic Range shooting mode to make the PowerShot G12 even more intuitive. Under High Dynamic Range (Tripod is required), the camera will shoot three different exposures in a succession (underexposed, overexposed and normal) and then merge them into a single image. Underexposed areas are combined with the overexposed and vice versa, resulting in an evenly detailed image with flattering shadows and highlights.
