  • Color, clarity, action, pattern, nature...all great. Love it. Thank you for sharing!
  • +2 to both of you. I tried three different Olympus, but Canon cams seem to have the knack of capturing the pics I envisioned while shooting.
  • Replied in Grip review
    Has anyone here tried this grip? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GXLWAZI/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=AG1FKBNAQKSKJ
  • I use the LensPen MiniPro - it works great on my SX230!
  • Replied in The LENS!!!
    Abu, you've said this about the G1X MkII before. What exactly do you not like about the MkII lens?
  • I personally use the 18-55 mostly, with the 22 in certain situations - low light, family stuff, if I have time for tripod and can get the right FOV, etc. My next add will be the 55-250 EF-S STM + ...
  • Ben, on mine, I do the following: (1) Never shoot on Auto, use P or other mode (2) Reduce the size of the focus frame (Menu)
  • Hi gonzplays, It depends on your preferences. I have owned a G6 briefly, but ended up selling it. I currently own a EOS M and had possession of both for long enough to do my own comparisons. I will ...
  • Congratulations on your new addition! You mentioned the G1X in one of your replies. I own both and I think she might like the M better for people/family/general. The touchscreen shutter will solve ...
  • Try the Canon 55-250 EF-S STM. There are several posters on this forum that use it with the M - it is light and they report very sharp. Also, it has the stepper motor for better video AF.
  • Hello Steve, Don't know if this will help, 'cause neither camera will focus as fast as your 5D. I own the G1X and the M. First, the G1X is not as slow as all have said for the past 2.5 years, you ...
  • Replied in Agreed. (n/t)
  • OR MAYBE Canon is the best brand in photography. Or at least one of the best (+Nikon). Ask the professionals what they use. Most use Canon. Every time I try/test other camera brands, I end up ...
  • Replied in Okay...leveling
    Other than needing the f2 or a compact form factor from the 22mm, I usually use the 18-55 and find it very, very good. It is excellent for video, as well. Since video is usually spontaneous for me ...
  • ...for me owning both of these cameras! Your pix and commentary on both the G1X and M are some of the best I have ever read. One reason is because many reviewers, commentators,  posters, etc. ...
  • Thanks, tomberault, that's helpful, also. I may keep the G1X as it is versatile...
  • Thanks, Chad. I had read your post before, but reading it again was helpful. I appreciate the effort to compare the two. Hoping some others will weigh in as well. Again, thank you.
  • Created discussions G1X + M Owners Question
    Hi Folks, relatively new to the forum here + new M Owner (M + 22 + 18-55). I didn't think I would enjoy this cam this much when I bought it, but now I don't find myself picking up my G1X ...
  • Replied in Thank you, Gary
    Gary, When the original G1X was released, you were one of the contributors that helped me decide to purchase it. This camera has been one of my all-time favorites. It has gone all over the US and ...
