Canon Philippines rocked the house as they welcomed the brand new month with a party for media people, held at Merk’s Bar in Makati. I’m sure no other digital brand party could top this one! Canon Philippine’s well loved President and CEO Mr. Ramon Arteficio gave away a host of SLRs, digital cameras, video recorders, printers, et al. Canon is one generous company! No wonder people are loyal to this brand.
We’ve had our already phased out PowerShot A620 for almost 5 years now and we cannot complain. It is pretty fierce, I should say. It accidentally drowned in the pool of Astoria Hotel and it went right back to life a week after. Although I do not exactly recommend you guys to dip your digicam underwater. But this one’s coming from a user’s personal experience. One brand I would so love to replace our current digital cam is the next best thing to your DSLR – -The PowerShot G11.
After having tested it for myself during the Canon Future Event last September 9, 2009, I just knew PowerShot G11 was the “it” camera for me. Here’s why:
Powershot G11, the latest addition to the PowerShot G-series, comprises of a 10.0-megapixel high-sensitivity CCD sensor and DIGIC 4 image processor for greatly reduced noise and expanded dynamic range. This allows users to capture exquisite photos with minimal noise and optimal exposure even in scenes with little light or high contrast in brightness levels, both difficult shooting environments for conventional digital cameras.
It is also capable of macro shots as close as 1cm. Servo AF/AE ensures subjects are in focus and optimally exposed, with ISO going up to 3200. New Low Light with ISO of 12800 and Quick Shot modes have been added for greater convenience.
Like the globally successful G10, PowerShot G11 features a wide-angle 28 mm optical zoom lens, diverse manual recording functions, RAW image recording capability, and compatibility with EOS Speedlite and DPP software. The PowerShot G11 also incorporates new advents such as the much demanded 2.8-inch Vari-angle LCD screen, which allows photographers to snap pictures from a much greater range of positions.
