76 — Point and shoot cameras — Review of Canon G11

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #76 talks about point and shoot cam­eras and reviews the Canon G11. We talk about the advan­tages and lim­i­ta­tions of point and shoot cam­eras. We also talk about the most impor­tant rea­son for pho­tog­ra­phers to get a point and shoot cam­era and that rea­son is NOT qual­ity.‚ Finally I give a quick review of the Canon G11. I rec­om­mend this cam­era but I’m also bru­tal about its faults.
