Why do you think the problem is down to the G12?

Best thing would be to take some static test shots of the same item in the same light, but use auto, shutter priority, apeture priority & full manual just to make sure that it is the auto that is causing the over brightness or if it is a fault with the camera or the way your wife is using it.

Re: Canon powershot G12

Hi jepster, I keep a G12 in my car glove box so I always have a camera near. I have never used it on auto though, so I just nipped out to the garden and compared full auto with the AV I normaly use.
What I found was, on full auto with auto ISO it had a warm cast and some highlights were blown, but not the ones I would have expected.
In AV at f4 and auto ISO, it was a cooler more neutral colour, and there were no blown highlights, all the detail was preserved.
So it looks like it may tend to over expose slightly in auto, maybe you could try a bit of exposure compensation to balance it, or use AV and see if it corrects the problem.
All the best, Charles.
