A couple months ago, I ‘sold’ my Canon G9 to my dad, and upgraded to the Canon G11, mostly because I was interested in the better ISO performance as well as the swivel-screen, something I haven’t been able to play with since I borrowed my mom’s old point-and-shoot five years ago. I’d already hiked the 5DMKII up Diamond Head twice in the last few weeks, so this time I just took the G11 to see what I could do with it. Accompanied by Kaeo and Gabe, here’s what we came up with. (And yes, all shots have been post-processed.)
Overall, I feel the G11 is a great alternative for taking photos when you don’t want to haul your DSLR around! It might not have the tonal-range or sensor size of my 5DMKII, but it’s definitely capable of taking nice, fun photographs.
