Because I normally shoot Jpeg+Raw I'd largely ignored all those fancy options under the Scene settings thinking of them as Jpeg only and not worthy.

I was wrong.

Because the shot to shot times are awful in PASM modes, I decided to use the High Speed mode at an Airshow to ensure that I captured a formation of aircraft in the best position against a foreground subject. The result was a revelation.

Not only is the High Speed Mode very usable but the Jpeg quality is superb and capable of a lot of tweaking.

To my mind Canon have created a very acceptable workround for one of the G1X's weaknesses.
