Manufacturer’s Description

PowerShot G12 Digital Camera combines 10.0 megapixel sensor and the DIGIC 4 Image Processor to create Canon's HS System for better low light performance and image quality. The camera automatically adjusts the ISO speed from ISO 320 to ISO 12800 in relation to ambient brightness, subject movement and camera shake. Hybrid IS compensates for angular and shift camera shake during close-up shooting. You can also shoot 720p HD (1280 x 720 pixels) video in stereo sound and play back on an HDTV via the HDMI output. Full range of shooting and recording modes include RAW and JPEG for creative control in editing. Large, bright 2.8" Vari-angle LCD has 461,000 dots for shooting at a variety of angles plus an optical viewfinder. Digital camera also offers 5x Optical Zoom with Optical Image Stabilizer, a 28mm wide-angle Lens, 4X digital built-in flash, and continuous shooting.
