The PowerShot G11's RAW mode lets you shoot images without JPEG compression. It gives you clearer images and complete creative control in editing. RAW images are transferred directly to the computer where they can then be edited using image adjustment software or a processing application to adjust your images as you please. The camera can also be set to allow the simultaneous recording of both RAW and JPEG images while shooting.
Also, with 26 Shooting Modes, you're ready for whatever shot comes your way.
Shooting Modes Advanced presets for the best possible photos under certain conditions.
AUTO Recognizes typical shooting scenes, and detects faces, brightness, colors, distance and movement without the need to switch modes.
P Program Access advanced exposure compensation features while shooting mostly automatically.
Av Aperture-priority You define the aperture to either isolate your subject or have clarity throughout the entire picture, and the camera will choose the corresponding shutter speed.
Tv Shutter-priority You select the shutter speed to stop or blur action, and the camera finds the appropriate aperture. With slow exposure times, Canon's noise reduction system activates to ensure low image noise.
Manual The ultimate in creative control, you select both aperture and shutter speed manually.
