Re: Advice: S95 vs G12 (and others)

I'd go with the G11. The lens, sensor and processor are the same as the G12. I just didn't find the front wheel did anything good for me. That's not the case with the S90/95's front control dial. I'd thought that hte G12 would offer the same options for the front wheel as my S90; but it didn't. So I would go for the G11.

If you have just one camera, the S90/95 isn't long enough and lacks a hot shoe. It's a great pocketable camera and has a wide range of capability; but it lacks the optical finder, the articulated LCD and the hot shoe. By using a LensMate accessory you can add filters to the S95 or the G11.
