Photography Blog has reviewed the exciting new compact camera from Canon, the Canon PowerShot G11. I find the G11 exciting because Canon has lowered the amount of pixels on the image sensor compared to the G10. Let us hope this move will improve image quality.

Some key features for the Canon PowerShot G11:
-10 megapixel image sensor
-5x optical zoom lens (equivalent to 28-140mm)
-Optical image stabilization
-RAW + JPEG shooting

Photography Blog ends up giving the Canon PowerShot G11 a “Highly Recommended” 4.5 out of 5 stars rating. It gets a good rating because the camera is able to produce very good pictures and has a lot of nice features. The only downside is that you can not use other lenses which you can on the new Olympus Pen 1 and Panasonic GF1.

Several photo rumor sites have reported specifications for the Canon PowerShot G11 compact digital camera. They are also claiming that the camera will be announced today (among with other Canon cameras). It is interesting to see that the rumors are claiming that Canon will use a 10 megapixel sensor on the G11. Maybe image quality will be the main focus on this camera. It is also a bit weird that it is lacking HD-video.
