    Mark, that was perfect timing on the close up manual focus tip! I just got a new G 12 after my old camera quit working.

    Linda, manual focus works a lot easier and better on my G12 than it did on the S70 I used previously. While the automatic enlargement of the focus point can get in the way of confirming composition, being able to actually see when something is in focus is a blessing to my old eyes.

    You can “steer” the focus point for manual focus just like you an for autofocus. That gives you a lot more control. It’s a function I haven’t seen on too many cameras that my students have brought to my classes.
