  • You do have the option to turn flash off, otherwise it is Auto. Dennis
  • I don't mean to make you feel dumb, but perhaps you were in P (program Auto) on the other cameras?  I checked all my cameras, and ALL of them in full Auto only offer Auto flash or Off, no Fill ...
  • I have purchased two Canon refurbs in the past several months; G15 and Elph 110. Both looked and work like new. All Canon refurbs come with a year warranty. http://shop.usa.canon.com/shop/en/catalo ...
  • I recommend getting a Clearviewer (Google this word).  I have three of them, and they work great in bright conditions.  However, I wear a hat with a brim to block most of the overhead or side ...
  • You must be referring to Sigma Freud? ;-) Dennis
  • Interesting, but I think you meant to post in the Sigma forum, not this Samsung forum. Dennis
  • Definitely a great capture. If you want to overcome the bright light and LCD issue, I recommend a Clearviewer be added to the tripod mount. It does not add much to the camera dimensions in your ...
  • Replied in G15 refurb?
    Here's the DPR review for the G1 X. You may also like using a swivel LCD with the G1 X vs a fixed LCD of the G15. http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canong1x/ I would buy one if I didn't already have ...
  • Replied in G15 refurb?
    If your budget range goes to $300, then you might consider a refurb G1 X available for $300. Larger sensor, better high ISO results, sharp lens, etc. It's not as small, and cannot do macro as ...
  • I recommend a Clearviewer to allow you to use your LCD as an EVF. I use one with my G15, and it also works with our older G9. http://www.clearviewer.com/ Dennis
  • I like my Canon G15 with the 270EX II small flash. However, I've had good results with just the built in flash when in a pinch. Dennis
  • I got the SEF-20A for my NX100, and it works fine on my NX20 too. It's small, and easy to carry around, yet powerful enough for my needs. It bounces, but does not swivel, if that is your need. http ...
  • Perhaps this will answer your question re: Picasa on a Chromebook? I don't have a Chromebook, because I want to be able to use software on my laptop, and not be cloud based with everything. Photo ...
  • Replied in Spring?...
    Thanks. Yep, we really enjoyed the brief time we spent there. It's quite peaceful and the weather was great that day (Mar 16th, day prior to St. Patrick's Day).  We were traveling home, so only ...
  • Replied in Spring?...
    We just returned from a trip down south (South Carolina), and saw some signs of spring, like the below photo taken in Greenville, SC. However, back here in the U.P. of Michigan, it's still winter, ...
  • I moved from my G9 and G11 to a Canon refurb G15, and have been very happy with the "upgrade".  Like you, I thought the swivel LCD of the G11 was great for a while, then decided my G9's smaller ...
  • Have you considered the HP Stream 13? It has full Win 8.1, and appears to be getting good reviews on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/HP-Stream-Includes-Personal-Horizon/dp/B00O65HZKS I've been using ...
  • It looks like the Canon SX280 has most of your wants. Adding filters is another issue though. This older thread link may offer a suggestion, http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3731877 Dennis
  • As all have stated above, wide angle perspectives change according to whether you are aiming above or below the horizon. There is also the curvature of the earth to deal with here. I sometimes use ...
  • I realize you have already ordered, but I will add my kudos to refurb cameras from Canon. I bought a refurb Elph 110 last fall, and a refurb G15 last month. Both were shipped in excellent ...
