"Excellent control, impressive images in a small camera."4.5 starson by alavache_sf
Pros: The rings work great! The rear one is not a problem. It's easy to get optimal settings. Image quality great between 80-200, which is easy to stay within given a fast lens. This is an ideal carry anywhere camera and a perfect complement to a DSLR.
Cons: Lacks some features that the G11 has, like the ability to use a remote control or use of an external flash. Images do get grainy after 400 (typical to point and shoot cameras).
Summary: This camera has reproducible, excellent image quality in a compact form factor. I can't imagine a better camera at this size, nor one that has controls so readily at hand. It feels sturdy. The dials are extremely useful and make the camera easily configurable and FUN. With a little practice it is easy to get excellent photos. This is a great pocket-sized alternative to the G11 with most of the same features and picture quality.
