I've been eagerly awaiting the Canon G12 release for some time now. I've been an avid user of the G9 which takes photos that rival most budget SLRs at a fraction of the size and weight. I was looking to replace it with the G11 but sadly that model did not have support for remote shutter which is really valuable for low-light conditions.
So imagine my surprise when a Google search turns up a website called canong12.com with what looks like a press release from an upcoming launch on August 17th. The good news: far better sensitivity, a better lens, remote shutter, the ability to drop resolution in favor of greater speed (shooting at ISO 12,800 and 2.4 frames per second!) and a number of other features make this a must-buy for me. This camera will be a low-light monster!
Interestingly, the sensor will apparently not be CMOS which busts a very popular rumor for this model.
I'll be watching with great interest this Tuesday to see if it drops. Expect a street price of around $399.
