Got these with the G15, may have missed if I had chosen the G1X?

Like everyone else, agonised over which of the two to choose, and admired the wonderful IQ of other photographers' shots with the G1X. The smaller camera won out, it needed to fit in a bike pannier up big hills, where extra grams count. I also wanted to capture fleeting moments, so fast AF was important.

Day 1, riding uphill to the Dare memorial outside Dili, the Bombeiros (fire service) ute passed a crowd of children and made their day by letting them all pile in and ride up the hill to school.

Back in Dili, saw this dog guarding the rice sacks in a dark shop, the streetscape is outside the shop.

Would the IQ have been better with the G1X?  I am sure yes.  Would I have carried it with me up the Dare hill?? Probably not, it's a steep climb.  At least, not after the newness wore off.

SO I would have missed a couple of classic moments. The camera you have with you, always the best one
