Powershot G1 is the camera with enough advanced options to gratify a professional photographer. I bought it last year and using it for wild life photography and nature. I am thoroughly satisfied with the quality of pictures I am getting. It even boasts the ability to take the short movie clips with sound packing 3.34 million pixels.
