My Canon G11...
I was originally about to buy the highly acclaimed G10 but luckily, I got wind of the imminent launch of the G11. The G10 was a 14 megapixel camera and it caused quite a stir when Canon announced that its successor would only have 10 megapixels! Sounded odd at first, but what Canon pointed out was that they had dropped out of the pixel-counting wars and had focused on image quality instead. Compact camera users have long complained about poor noise levels and finally, a manufacturer has had the bottle to go against the marketing department's advice and go for quality instead of quantity.
Everyone knows that pixels don't make pictures. And the G11 proves the point. It produces amazingly high quality images with two-thirds of the pixels of its predecessor. Effectively, it gives an extra two stops of useful speed. Where most compacts get horribly noisy at ISO400, the G11 looks superb.
