    It starts as a simple "Point & Shoot" (like) camera:

    Canon PowerShot G12    ---    31mm    f/4.5    1/5s    ISO 800

    GF1-PS11.JPG
    Canon PowerShot G12    ---    16mm    f/3.5    1/5s    ISO 800


    Then transforms into an "SLR" (like) camera:

    Canon PowerShot G12    ---    16mm    f/3.5    1/5s    ISO 800

    GF1-SLR1.JPG
    Canon PowerShot G12    ---    14mm    f/4.0    1/1s    ISO 500

    GF1-SLR4.JPG
    Canon PowerShot G12    ---    18mm    f/4.0    1/5s    ISO 800

    GF1-SLR3.JPG
    Canon PowerShot G12    ---    25mm    f/4.5    1/5s    ISO 800

    Is there a dedicated button for the transformation or do you have to do it via menu? :confused:

    Menu driven, but only with the proper firmware update. :wink:


    Seriously, though, the grip does make a huge difference in handling with larger lenses. I added some of a leather skin to the grip area, which helps with control in P&S form, but it doesn't compare with the positive control offered by the extension.

    Email them. I was able to order direct from them. They have someone that speaks simple english. They accept paypal and were very good with the speed of communication emails. Shipped the same day I paid as well.

    Will let you all know when I receive it.
