Shooting in high contrast environments can often result in photos with overexposed and underexposed sections. So to tackle this problem, Canon developed the High Dynamic Range shooting mode to make select PowerShot cameras even more intuitive. Under High Dynamic Range* the camera will shoot three different exposures in a succession (underexposed, overexposed and normal) and then merge them into a single image. Underexposed areas are combined with the overexposed and vice versa, resulting in an evenly detailed image with flattering shadows and highlights.
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.

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

Lens got stuck after only about 100 exposures. It was good while it worked, but the quality of this camera is poor in my opinion.
