Canon unveils G12 pro point-and-shoot with Hybrid IS, HDR

updated 06:55 am EDT, Tue September 14, 2010

Canon PowerShot G12 made official

After an accidental reveal last month, Canon tonight stepped up to take on Nikon by revealing the PowerShot G12. It uses the same upgrades that came to the smaller S95 in August and shares its Hybrid IS advanced stabilization as well as the multi-shot high dynamic range mode. For the first time, a G series camera shoots HD and here records in the S95's 720p with HDMI output.

A 10-megapixel low light sensor still acts as the cornerstone of the camera. Canon has also been conservative with the design and still has the familiar swiveling LCD and 5X (28-140mm) f2.8-4.5 lens. Dedicated dials for exposure and ISO are still intact, as is an optical viewfinder and a hot shoe, and a 2.7-inch swivelling LCD is unchanged from the G11.

Canon anticipates shipping the G12 in early October for $500.
