First let me comment on the "One Star" reviews. These people need to wake up to reality. This is the best compact digital camera in this price range.... PERIOD. I have the Canon XTI, the 40D, the 5D Mark II, the G-11 and a $2,500 Panasonic Vid Cam. I'm a retired professional photographer. What camera do I always have with me? The G-12. For anything up to 11x14 prints they all fit the bill nicely. Of course for high end work, it's the 5D Mark II or the Panasonic. I just tested the G-12 against the Panasonic for video capability. The Panasonic has two distinct advantages. Power zoom while shooting and the ability to use an external microphone with wind screen (Dead Cat). But we are talking apples and pears. You don't carry a large vid-cam on your belt. I spent a few hours on the Virginia & Truckee Railway out of Carson City, NV. (Side note-- a great steam train ride) I shot with the G-12 and the Panasonic Professional AG-HMC40 AVCHD Camcorder with 10.6MP Still and 12x Optical Zoom. I planned to use the video to create a DVD of the ride. On the finished DVD if is not possible to tell the difference in the video shot with which camera. However, there is objectionable wind noise with the G-12 when shooting into the wind. But that's a given that any videographer already knows will happen with an unprotected microphone. Five stars for the G-12. It does a great job for stills and video. Lots of great usable features. The one star folks need to spend the $$$ if they want a "does everything any time any where features" and stop crying.
