Pulling the triger today! G12 or S95?
Apr 25, 2011

I CAN NOT make this decesion on my own. I'm buying the S95 or the G12 today or tomorrow. I want to nurture my interest in photography. I have no experience you'd really count...I had an ultra zoom (that was stolen) and took a 2 hour beginners class. I've decided against a DSLR b/c I don't want the expense or commitment of carrying a bag with lenses. I want something at least semi-portable, would like to be able to take decent pics in low light conditions, and would like to be able to get decent shots of moving subjects. I'm leaning toward the G12 b/c of the external manual controls (I also want control over my pics, and to be able to get creative) and the longer zoom, and the fact that it just "looks" like a serious camera. I like the idea that I can take the S95 ANYWHERE though. I'm open to advice and recommendations...Is the extra 35MM of zoom on the G12 worth the reduced portability?
