  • Replied in G7X file size
    Canon's specs show a little over 9 MB average for large superfine, but JPEGs often appear larger than expeced depending upon subject matter. I'm not shocked by your findings on a 20 MP sensor but ...
  • Dang. Returning once again to the original question of G7X v. G1X-II, I got into this thread feeling like I have the superior camera with the G1X-II, as long as I'm willing to put forth the effort ...
  • As much as I like my G1X-II, I'd have trouble recommending it to anyone who is new to still photography. Like most P&S cameras, it can certainly take high quality images in auto or P mode, but to ...
  • It's still your favourite, and the sentiment is mutual (if a camera can have a favourite photographer). I can't recall anyone pulling as many outstanding examples from this camera as you have ...
  • It looks like you're about three years ahead of the curve, but consider something like http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/store/product/discovery-kids-usb-compatible-digital-camera/3242627. (Of ...
  • Full compatibility info is at https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1030798. As I read this, The G1X-II requires ACR 8.5 or higher, and Elements 13 supports through ACR 8.7.1, so it should work for you, ...
  • One thing you might consider is setting up one of your Custom settings in P mode with auto ISO and WB, etc.. Switch to that mode when you hand the camera to a helpful third party to take a shot. I ...
  • On the second tab in the menu (wrench and hammer) scroll down ri Touch Operation and change the setting to Off using the right or left side of the control wheel.
  • I'm curious about your workflow when shooting RAW + JPEG, specifically about the file transfer. Currently I use Lightroom to transfer my photos from a card reader to my PC, including a process ...
  • Let me add a follow-up question related to turning off the LCD, as you suggested (Profbx). I know from the description on the B&H site (no real description from Canon) that this can be set to ...
  • Lots of good advice here already, but you didn't mention how you shoot. If you shoot single JPEG images, you should be fine with pretty much any current card as far as speed goes. If you shoot RAW ...
  • Canon customer service may be able to tell you whether your serial number has already been serviced. I know a large number of the affected range have already been updated; maybe your seller got ...
  • I had the original G1X with the tilt/swivel LCD, and certainly enjoyed that feature. I now have the G1X-II with the fold-out screen, and actually like this design better. For my uses, the fold-out ...
  • 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 ...
