In this review you can see the body and controls of the camera.  Its rather large and brick sized, definitely not pocket sized (like the Canon S95 for example).

The camera has two layered dials on the top right, one is the typical mode dial for aperture priority, shutter priority and manual, and below that is an ISO dial, what a great idea, letting you change and see the ISO instantly.  On the left is an exposure compensation dial, giving you quick access to adjust the exposure, great for those scenes such as backlit.

It also features a spin dial on the back, and a shortcut button which can be assigned.  Manual focus, metering and more are also accessible via buttons.  I love this, should make it very quick and easy to adjust settings, no more digging into menus.

It includes an optical viewfinder, but it lacks any overlay that might give you information.  You can expand the camera with an external flash, and a teleconverter to get more zoom.  

The reviewer loves shooting with the G12, with tons of features easy to access and simple.  The digital level meter ensures your shots are parallel to the horizon.  

He was impressed with the white balance, and the ability to change it easily.  It also includes a neutral density filter, which worked well, enabling you to shoot wide open at f/2.8 even in bright lot.

The Canon G12 includes an autofocus assist light, firing a blue beam, great for focusing in low light.  Other features include HDR mode.

He reviews the image quality, and says it has excellent image quality in bright light.  In low light, he says that 1600 ISO is usable but noisy.  He doesn't find the video mode very advanced, you can't zoom or use manual focus while shooting video.
