Achieve Photographic Greatness

  • The new PowerShot G12 offers improved handling (2.8″ vari-angle LCD with new front dial), greater levels of manual control, HS System and Hybrid IS – providing a powerful feature set capable of superb image quality in all shooting conditions. PowerShot G12 also supports HD movie with stereo sound recording.


  • The HS SYSTEM comprises of a 10MP high-sensitivity sensor (back illuminated) and Canon’s renowned DIGIC imaging processor allowing photographer to capture full resolution images with vivid colour reproduction and drastically reduced image noise even in tricky light conditions without tripod.

Hybrid IS (Image Stabilizer)

  • Canon’s newly developed Hybrid IS technology optimally compensates for both angular camera shake (rotational) and shift camera shake (linear)
  • Sudden changes in camera angle can cause significant blur in images taken during standard shooting, whereas blur caused by shift-based shaking, when a camera moves parallel to the subject, is more pronounced in macro and other close-up photography.
  • Designed to improve stabilization performance at closer subject distances, and particularly for macro shooting which can be difficult for conventional image stabilization technologies. The Hybrid IS incorporates an angular velocity sensor that detects the extent of angular camera shake which is found in all previous optical image stabilizer mechanisms, as well as a new acceleration sensor that determines the amount of shift-based camera shake and moves the lens elements to compensate for both types of movement.

Manual Controls

  • Full range of shooting and recording modes including RAW + JPEG for the ultimate creative control.

RAW mode

  • In RAW mode, images are recorded without modification and as the files are unprocessed, colours can be manipulated to precise requirements before converted to TIFF or JPEG.
  • To edit, use Canon’s DPP image adjustment software.
  • The camera can also be set to allow the simultaneous recording of both RAW and JPEG images while shooting
