  • Yes I used sports mode just to see how it handled the job. I don't see myself using it much although it did pretty well. I prefer the ability to set up to my taste as a rule. I'm going to try it ...
  • Well as you will have guessed I didn't have high hopes for the G3X's tracking ability and what I got was better than I expected. Especially the screen refresh rate and buffer capacity in JPG. ...
  • Please don't be sorry :) For me the sensor size and IQ are why I say it would need to be a DSLR Agree they can take great shots but if you had to shoot an event, wedding etc would you pick up a 1" ...
  • This is true. The nearest would be a high spec DSLR with a collection of lenses and good flash system. Of course carrying 20lbs plus weight of gear isn't something you want to do all the time :D Th ...
  • because I didn't expect it to have such a good buffer, tracking and screen refresh rate to enable me to track the cars You walk at 9km per hour? I'm impressed again :D also you picked probably the ...

  • for those who asked :)
  • OK try this. Hold your camera and take a shot of a building where you can see the whole width of the building with the camera pointing straight forward at eye level, don't worry about other ...
  • What you have there is perspective distortion because your camera sensor wasn't vertical, your camera was pointing down. So to avoid it keep the camera vertical but it can limit POV. The ...
  • Hi Bab If you want shots of the grandkids running around (do they every stop?) I'd go with the SL-1 as the focus will be faster. I have the original M and the 550D and to shoot the grandkids the ...
  • Sorry I thought I uploaded this in the other thread which is now at limit. It's the RAW before and after LR adjustment. Both cropped
