  • My thoughts and experiences exactly when shooting the 5 year old.  The camera definitely "got in the way" of which my DSLR did not.  As I posted in other threads, I'm not expecting high speed ...
  • G1X Refurb, $269.99, SX50 Refurb, $179.  With all three cameras still available and refurb prices continuing to drop, my thought is they plan on discontinuing these cameras.
  • I use a G12 at work and echo Andy's thoughts completely.  The articulating screen and also ISO knob of the G12 is nice but the other aspects of a (for me G15, G16 even better) completely outweigh ...
  • Yes on paper, unless someone really wanted an EVF that bad, can't see why anyone would choose the F30 over the G16.  Bigger body, less zoom and I would think only a marginal image resolution increase.
  • Carl will be interested if or when you post thoughts on the Fuji X30 compared to the G16 as I see the Fuji is in your review que.
  • Thank you for your thorough and concise review.  Your review makes me want to trade up from the G15, even though the G15 is treating me fine.  One niggle I have which I have posted before is I ...
  • I really hope that next year at this time, they'll have these kinds of prices on the G16 and G1X Mark II!
  • Andy, just how much faster is the G16 than the G15?  I'm really trying to get a feel for this so that if it is ever discounted heavily, would it be worth it for me to upgrade from my G15.  For an ...
  • Well Elliott, I've read tons of info and opinions on the G1X II and I'd say in your first DP post, you have nicely and succinctly summarized the good and bad attributes of the camera.  To me, when ...
  • Replied in Very Tempting
    In previous discussions comparing the G15 to the G16, I've asked to be seen examples of where the G16 image is superior but no one has yet responded.  I've used the studio comparison tool from ...
  • This sale on Canon's refurb powershot page has probably mentioned within other threads but if anybody is still unaware, I think this is a screaming deal.  I have to wonder how long Canon will keep ...
  • That's good information to know, Dale.  Too bad, DP wouldn't shoot the scene with a variety of lenses, not feasible I know but at least include the kit lens.  That majority of users who buy a T5i ...
  • Well DP Review sort of slammed it again in the LX100 review stating as they have in other recent compact camera reviews, that it appears to be an inferior sensor (by modern day standards).  When I ...
  • To add to the question, this price makes it as cheap or cheaper than the OMD EM-10.  At that price point, is it a better deal than the OMD-10?  Spec wise, other than the OMD-5 weather sealing, it ...
  • It seems from any reviews I've read and my limited experience with non-Canon mirrorless cameras, Canon is way behind the competition in terms of auto focus speed, shot to shot times and ...
  • Me too.  I think the S120 is the end of the line and likewise for the G16.  Canon's alleged super zoom or "Grote" or whatever they call it will be the G16 replacement.
  • I waffle back and forth about getting one of these but it's the sluggish speed of operation that holds me back.  For that kind of money I expect it to be really zippy in all aspects of operation ...
  • Replied in G15 vs G16?
    I think that has to be New In Box and Like New In Box.  Yes I think that was a great deal on the G15.  I bought mine shortly after release for $480.  Today they have a great deal on a T5i refurb ...
  • What a great set of pictures!  When I see those, I don't think about technical, critical aspects of a camera, I just realize what great creativity is involved.  Makes me feel like I'm there and I ...
  • Fred, I use a Canon 430 EX II flash on my G15, which I had originally bought for my DSLR.  A big flash for the G15 but I don't have any user issues.  Some years ago, I bought a Sigma flash for my ...
