I was reading a thread on new cameras, and am interested in the canon g 12. but no one posted any shots taken with one and I was wondering how it did for close up detail. I currently use an olympus camedia c-3000. At only 3.3 megapixelss it's a dinosaur in today's market, but it takes great closeups. It is what I used for most of the photos on my web site. www.sandrabradyart.com Unfortunately, it takes an ID card, and they are hard to find. Olympus doesn't support the camera any more either. I am looking for one that is easy to use too. If any one has a g12 or other camera you would recommend, please post some photos too.
