  • Hey thank you so much! I am learning a lot! Previously it never bothered me, never interfered so I never sough ways to switch it off. By the way, in the "oldies" Sony V1 and V3 it was a different...
  • Same problem. Got rid of it and replaced it with a wrist strap, works wonders! I put the case around my neck (a small lowepro with a nice strap)
  • By the way, I was trying to do pictures with my G15 trough a microscope, but I did not manage to focus properly because the illuminator tracked outside. Is it possible to turn the illuminator...
  • Replied in Macro with G15
    Awww so simple! Yeah indeed it works! Thank you so much! Cheers Roberto
  • Created discussions Macro with G15
    Hello, How can I put the macro mode on my G15? The manual says to press "MF/macro" button on the left of the FUNCT.SET button, but all I obtain is a choice between auto and manual focus... The icon...
  • Alas, no viewfinder...
  • Thanks to Dale, Gerard and Mr Pootie. I will try all their advise (including RAW although I am a beginner there - hopefully with LightZone I'll get some decent results) CheersRoberto
  • Hi Dale, Thank-you for the advice! But there is a misunderstanding here (my fault). By "burned" I meant white, not red. I meant burned by light. Skins in the sun do not look like skin, but just too...
  • You are reassuring me! I bough a G15 after much indecision with G1X. I realized that G1X, with it's fabulous lens and large sensor, although still a "compact" would not fit in a pocket. The G15...
  • Indeed? The only raw converter user-friendly enough for the likes of me? But I have a Mac! OK, I will try the beta Thanks for the news!
  • Hey thanks! It seems I have to discover things, here. I'll begin with i-Photo which I use very seldom (I am a Graphic Converter & GIMP (and the great LightZone not supported anymore) user. I'll...
  • Hello, I was terribly undecided between G1X and G15. I read tons of posts, forums, obviously the reviews, etc. It is clear the the G1X has better both lens and sensor. But I bought a G15. Why? Not...
  • Bough a G15 a week ago and next day replaced the neck strap with my old Sony G3 wriststrap, very happy. Now I have to find the perfect pouch
  • I am a bit lost here... What have mails and mailboxes to do with this? Anyways, I see I am an ignorant here. So a very simple question: if you import the pictures directly in a library using a...
  • Beautiful. My favourite is the first one, poetic. Great G1X, I nearly regret to have purchased the G15 (because of fit in pocket)
  • A sony camera is normally "seen" by the Mac. I mean, connect the camera to the iMac, then turn on the camera, the card will mount on the desktop as an USB-key or an external HD. Then open the DCIM...
  • I definitely formatted the card in the camera (although I would have liked the "to begin with" instruction booklet to mention that) I do not have lightroom while Image Browser, the one bundled...
  • Hi Marco, I the camera didn't come with any USB cable at all, I used an old one I have. I'll try another one. The software on the bundeld CD (I installed it all) did an autocheck and installed the...
  • No through USB slot direct cable to the camera Yes indee! And "Camera Window" starts automatically when I turn it on, but then does not recognize it Oh yes indeed! Definitely, with the provided...
  • Hey thanks! I did not know this! Yeah :-( Bundled sofware is moronic. Still want to try the raw editing software, though Concerning Image capture, I do not know it. I will try. I like to be able...
