    Anyone Using a Canon G 12 ?

    Hello.

    I have just won a major Photography award,and was very pleased-its a honour to win a 'Dr David Malin Award',I was unaware there was a prize attachment to this award,but have just found out-I have won a Canon G 12 camera.

    I do not know anything about this model,I have a Canon Power Shot 530,will I notice much difference in the images? I see the G 12 can take external flashes-would my EX 430 I use on my DSLR work on it.

    Also-would the video quality be like and sound.Thank for any feed back on what this camera is like.
    Canon 50D and 450D - Canon 10-22 F3.5-5.6, 17-55 F2.8 L, 70-200 F2.8 L, 400 prime F5.6 L, 60mm F2.8 macro, EX 430 Flash,and all sorts of other bits and pieces

    Which was your image ??

    The G12 - you will notice a huge difference in image quality compared to a PS530.
    The video is just a gimick, in my opinion, it is not a video camera, it is a still camera with video function, no external mike.
    Yes your 430 will work with the G12, a bit top heavy though, the 270 EX makes a perfect partner for the G12

    Thanks for info,not sure weather to keep it,or sell it,I really do not use PS much at all.

    Might sell it and put funds towards a Canon 600D.

    Cheers

    Congratulation on your win. Must be a nice feeling to win a major photography award.
