    Canon G12

    Every year I look at the G series and say that would be an interesting camera to shoot but I've never owned one and shot with one. With M4/3, NEX and then the LX5 and S95 it somewhat like the "odd man out". However, I never seem to be able to shake the curiosity of shooting with one and you do see soooo many people using them.

    Is anyone using the G12? Your thoughts?

    Not the G12 Terry, but I have been shooting the G9 for a few years and love it!
    Here are a few samples from Iceland this summer:

    If my G9 quits, I will buy the G12!

    Darr - incredible as I just started to scroll down to look at the shots (without reading) all I saw was the bridge and ice and said that has to be the Glacial Lagoon....I could spend days shooting there in different light.

    I want to go back to Iceland--NO, I WILL be going back to Iceland again!!
    I totally understand it all! As soon as I get the opportunity again, I'll go back.

    Nice work, Terry. Are these MF or sf?

    Did you experience any equipment trouble due to the cold/freezing temperatures? The only flaw in equipment I faced when at the Glacial Lagoon, was my Franic grip came off the G9. The adhesive did not hold up in the cold. I love the G9 as my walk around camera. I do not know what I would do without it at times.

    I hope someone chimes in with the G12 as I have been eyeing it too.

    Hi Terry, I bought the G12 recently for my trip in Japan. But I found that the LCD of the G12 is somewhat too yellow when viewing ppl's faces and esp those yellow light or object. But the real picture is normal when view in the PC monitor after downloading.

    Do you experience the same problem?

    Merry Christmas!

    I actually don't own the G12....but can you check and see if you can adjust the colors on the LCD. I know that is an option on some of the Panasonics.
