  • 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 ...
  • I really like the hot shoe of the G16.  I've put on an external flash and took auditorium stage shots with the camera (granted a task probably better suited for a DSLR).  If I only had one camera ...
  • Damian, I'm looking at your first three shots and the shutter speeds are so low, I'm surprised they're as sharp as they are.  Did you use a tripod?  Those slow shutter speeds are exactly the ...
  • Thickness is probably the most important aspect in ease of pocket carry.  I bought my G15 to supplement my S100 at the time and found I could carry the G15 in most shooting opportunities so now ...
  • About two years ago, my friend with small children was looking for advice on upgrading from a point and shoot and was pondering between the original G1X or a DSLR.  I pointed her towards a DSLR ...
  • I know if one wishes to pixel peep, it won't hold up to a DSLR but I'm real happy.  I shot raw and processed with DXO Optics.  I thought the camera did a good job of preserving the highlights (not ...
  • Interestingly, the price of the XZ-2 has dropped tremendously since it's release, nearly half while the price of the G16 hasn't really budged (here in the USA).  I've seen it on sale for $450 but ...
  • There was a time, not that long ago, when one could obviously tell the difference of a compact camera image when compared with that of a DSLR.  The compact camera image would have that ...
  • Many people including myself are turned off by Sony's (or Panasonic) because they don't find the colors pleasing compared to Canon.  I've never really used a modern Sony but I'm wondering is the ...
  • Nice thoughts but I'd still like to see a side by side example of how the G16 has better image quality than the G15.  In using the new studio scene comparison tool on this site, I can't see it. ...
  • Replied in Compared to T5i?
    Hey guys, with disregard to the attributes of both, how is G1X II image quality compared to T5i with kit lens (within the overlap focal distance)?  I know the faster lens of the G1X would provide ...
  • I get in trouble when I pixel peep instead of enjoying the camera I have and concentrating on becoming a better photographer.  In that regard I do enjoy the advantages my G15 has over any other ...
