  • Maybe I'm missing something in your concept of a selfie, but just how long are your arms? (couldn't resist)
  • Consider, if you can find one, the Elph 500 HS. The only button on the back is the play button for viewing images. The rest is controlled by the touch screen. Of course, touch may be confusing, ...
  • Thanks for the tip -- I'll definitely file this away in case I run into the same issue (no problems so far). Dan
  • I think you misunderstand the purpose of the C1/C2 modes. These are not used to control a single function, but to save a group of settings that you find yourself using frequently. This will ...
  • I've never used the SX50, so I won't presume to comment on settings. I did want to mention that I've bought a couple of different refurbs from Canon over the last couple of years and have not been ...
  • Every year I take a similar shot of a fairly consistent group at our Christmas dinner.  I'm not usually a fan of artificial manipulation, but on a whim I applied a posterization effect to my 2008 ...
  • If the camera has a jack for connecting a wired remote (I think it does), you should be able to use an external intervalometer. I've been using one I bought on eBay for around $20 for my last ...
  • My 2 cents: I have tried many entry-level DSLRs and P7S cameras from Canon. I eventually worked my way up to the 60D and a small assortment of lenses, etc. Most of the reason I wanted something ...
  • Have you tried using the smile or wink detection modes? I just tested on my G1X-II and it works OK. Dan
  • Most modern P&S cameras, including my S100, include a panorama mode, since that seems to be an important consideration. But at least for what I've seen in Canon, this is a stitch-assist feature to ...
  • I don't have either of your devices, but I can at least confirm that CW preserved ISO data when downloading images directly from my G1X-II to my Android phone. I see ISO = 100 in a recent photo. Dan
  • What camera are you using? I have been able to transfer to my S4 Mini from my G1X-II. I've had some success using the camera as its own access point, but simpler results when linking both the ...
  • Perhaps, but it certainly answers your original question. CHDK will work with APS-C sensor cameras (I think I used it with my 60D at one point) and it definitely works with the near-APS-C sensor ...
  • I thought I agreed with you on disliking the touch screen, mostly based on my experience with the Elph 500 HS. I never got the hang of the touch-only interface on that one. With my G1X-II, though, ...
  • Created discussions Oh, now I get it: X = L
    At some point in the history of the G1X (I or II), I made a comment on this board that Canon should have included a red ring on the lens to identify this model as being a step above, just as they ...
  • Welcome to the Mark II learning curve. You'll need to spend a little time customizing the controls to your preference. I have ISO set to be controlled by the rear wheel, but I don't recall whether ...
  • This got me curious about the method used to estimate battery life. According to Canon, the figures represent testing as prescribed by CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association). I tracked down ...
  • Thank you to all who responded. I can safely say I feel sufficiently validated in my purchase decision. My S100 arrived today right on schedule. Before I even opened the white box, I confirmed ...
  • Created discussions Validation Wanted: S100
    I made a relatively impulsive decision this afternoon and am now seeking validation from those of you in the know. I ran across a deal on a refurbished PowerShot S100 directly from Canon for ...
  • I'm not sure if you can completely turn the touch screen off. You can disable touch focus and touch shutter (two independent options). This would probably still leave touch control for the menu ...
