Premium Compact Shootout: Nikon vs Canon vs Panasonic

Posted by Lee Yuan Sheng in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 12:00 PM

"We're now almost two decades into the competent digital compact camera era, but many things remain the same. The big issue has been and remains the small size of the image sensor in these cameras. While there has been a strong increase in image quality over the years, the small sensor sized used just doesn't allow the high-end compact camera to produce DSLR-like results in dynamic range or high ISO shooting."

Thom Hogan has compared three premium compacts, the Nikon P7000, the Canon G12, and the Panasonic LX5. While I am certain they all are decent (Nikon surprises me somewhat), I still like the Panasonic's combination of size, focal length, and looks. It is a very charming camera, the LX5. On another note: The Nikon looks way too much like a Canon; Thom Hogan even notes that the operation is more Canon than Nikon-like. If so, what is the appeal of buying a P7000 when there is a G12? Nikon really should have worked harder on differentiating the product (plus a compact that works like a Nikon DSLR is worth extra points in my book).

Digital Camera Resource Page Reviews the Canon Powershot G12

"The PowerShot G12 ($499) is the latest model in Canon's flagship G-series of digital cameras. It's a relatively minor update to the PowerShot G11..."

The Canon G12 is an incremental update, but I do like the addition of a proper command dial to it. I do wish the lens was a bit faster though! Digital Camera Resource Page has a good review, and it doesn't disappoint if you're looking for this class of camera.

Canon Announces Powershot G12

"Canon has launched the PowerShot G12 premium compact, successor to PowerShot G11 released last year. Inheriting most of the core features of the G11..."

Canon today announced two compacts, and the first is the G12, successor to the G11. While mostly a minor update, there are some nice additions, starting with a front command dial, making the G12 a two dial camera, which is much faster to operate (incidentally like the recently announced lookalike Nikon P7000). There's a new 2.8" HVGA LCD on a swivel arm, and the camera now records 720p videos at 24 FPS. Like all of Canon's new compacts, built-in HDR is available (shudder) The megapixel count and lens remain unchanged, at 10 megapixels with a 5x zoom lens at 28-140/2.8-4.5 equivalent. The camera will be available next month for US$499.
