Canon updates its flagship PowerShot G series with the new PowerShot G11 digital camera, a pocket-sized camera with SLR functionality. The G11 gets the tilt and swivel LCD back, since Canon cuts that since PowerShot G7.
As the successor to the G10, PowerShot G11 doesn’t get a CCD sensor with more pixels but a 10 Megapixel 1/1.7-inch CCD. It features a 5x optical zoom lens with a 28mm wide angle, Optical Image Stabilization, and a 2.8-inch vari-angle PureColor LCD display. The compact, ergonomically designed G11 is powered by the DIGIC 4 processor and it offers Dual Anti-Noise System, an ISO sensitivity up to 128000, ability to shoot in RAW format, and i-Contrast technology, which prevents high-light blowout whilst retaining low-light detail.
Like the new S90, the G11 doesn’t record 720p HD video but 640×480 movie at 30fps and offers an HDMI mini port. It supports SD, SDHC and MMC cards. It is compatible with some EOS accessories such as Speedlite flashes. It will be released in October for $499.99.
