I was really excited at the news of Canon’s new flagship advanced point & shoot camera, the PowerShot G11. One surprising move from Canon was to back off the megapixel race, going from 14+ megapixels on the G10 to a mere 10 megapixels on the new G11. The idea is that less pixels on such a small sensor would give them room to improve on sensitivity and low light performance. Sounds good to me. They also added an articulating high-res LCD screen–a total score, in my opinion. If you’re looking for a companion to your larger DSLR, this is a nice ride indeed. On the downside, at 28m/F2.8, the lens isn’t as wide or fast as its competitors (the Panasonic LX3 is 24mm/F2.0).
