The PowerShot G12 is compatible with the Speedlite flash series intended for all EOS series SLR cameras. Attach a Speedlite flash to the hot shoe, then you can set and control the flash on the "Flash Control" menu in the camera. With a Speedlight, the G12 is given extra functions such as autoflash metering, FE lock and Flash exposure compensation; continuous shooting with external flash. Also Canon's Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2 enables you to have multiple slave flashes and wireless control. A Tele-Converter lens designed for the G12, Filter Adapter FA-DC58B and WP-DC34 Waterproof Case is also available.
I Love My G12!
It does everything I want it to do and MORE. I use it in many different settings, photographing many different people, places, and things. The only draw back is that it takes a little time from when I press down on the shutter and when the camera does its thing. I HIGHLY recommend this camera for some one that wants very high quality pictures and doesn't want to lug around a bulky DSLR.

G12 CAMERA REVIEW
I HAVE MY CAMERA SINCE DECEMBER 17, 2010. I NOTICED THAT I ALWAYS HAD A LITTLE PROBLEM WITH THE FOCUS, I THOUGH IT WAS ME. THEN ON AND OFF, SINCE THE BEGINNING, I HAD A BLANK SCREEN BUT AFTER FEW SECONDS IT WORKED NO PROBLEM.
THEN ONE DAY IN MAY IT JUST STOP WORKING THE SCREEN WENT BLANK AND THE FEW TIMES IT WORKED IT GAVE ME A DISTORTED IMAGE! MY CAMERA NEVE EVER HAD A FALL. FOR THE PRICE VERY DISAPPOINTED. I WILL LOOK FOR ANOTHER BRAND NAME.

So far I enjoy the G12, specially when travel with my child.
It's light, and still takes beautiful pictures.

Images good - built quality not
After 2 years:
- lens door mechanism broke
- massive dust intrusion in the optical viewfinder
