  • Lately I really want to take bird pics, but don't want a crazy expensive lens for what would be fun pictures. I've always like Canon IQ and colors, but the SX50 lens looks mighty slow (maybe with ...
  • Alice, I think if you enjoyed the S90, you will have no trouble mastering the S120, and you'd game some speed, zoom range and wifi. I liked my S95 so much that I bought a second. But after one ...
  • As memory fades (which is happening with increased frequency!), photos become anchors to events. I use photos to help fill in the blanks, and to keep memories from evolving into happenings that...

  • Replied in G16 Manual
    I printed the manual (all 214 pages!) with 2 pages per page and double-side printing, but ultimately found it easier to read the pdf on-screen. I agree with the previous comment, that the G series ...
  • This is exactly where I'm at, got rid of the 50/1.4 since I prefer the 35 IS perspective, MUCH easier lens to use for post-concert gatherings and receptions. Got rid of the old 35/2 with the ...
  • I really like the 35 focal length on full frame. The old 35 f/2 was a lot of fun, but the 35 f/2 IS is even better! Also like the 200 f/2.8 at the other end. Those are my favs at the moment on ...
  • I like my 200 f/2.8 on 5D2 for resolution and handling. I've been tempted by the 70-200 f/2.8 IS for convenience, but the length, weight and price are not so nice. Then again, I keep a 100 f/2 in ...
  • Hi Alex, So far i like the image quality of the G16, but it will take many more shot to know. I had grown accustomed to the convenience of the SD700/SD850/S95 types of cameras, and learned to deal ...
  • Nothing special, just a few untouched G16 photos. Basically I shot in P mode, Positive colors and -1/3 EV. Through a window, so not ideal. Open window may have helped colors. Really like regaining ...
  • I have and love the 35mm f/2 IS on FF, but would not like that FL on crop. I agree that the other cheap option would be to pickup the cheapest possible Canon 18-55 and see what FL you like best.
  • While I prefer primes, I think this is the best idea so far. On crop, I had 24/2.8 and didn't care it for street shots. I really wanted to like the 20/2.8, but it didn't perform so well (bad ...
  • I received my Canon G16 yesterday. I didn't begin fiddling with the camera until the battery was fully charged. I also bought a 32GB Sandisk 80/60 SDHC card, which should suffice for lots of pics ...
  • Actually meant to say Olympus XZ-2. Always like that XZ line, but too wedded to Canon to take the leap!
  • While I like the value and versatility of Panasonics, I don't care for the colors they produce. Olympus would be my second choice after Canon for colors. The XZ-10 for instance looks good for ...
  • Replied in Canon G16...
    F/1.8-2.8 was the very reason I bought the G16 vs S120 (with silly slow f/5.7 long end). I needed a smaller than dSLR to take reasonable indoor shots as a secondary camera, and near-stellar ...
  • So I ended up ordering a G16. Sure, I'm paying too much, but I wanted some of the nice pluses of the S120 but with f/1.8-2.8. Not sure if I will like the bigger body, but it's still a lot smaller ...
  • I'm not shy about using digital zoom. Since the S95 is only 28-105, I do sometimes need to be at the long end of digital zoom to catch something. Sure the results aren't pretty, but sometimes I ...
  • Eric, I did mean Canon G1X. I could not deal with that terrible macro. Funny about the SD700IS. I burned one out with too many shots, but loved it so much I bought a new (used) one. The first day ...
  • ps. wonderful, colorful flower pic!
  • Eric, Your experience through these cameras is EXACTLY the same is mine! I liked the feel of the G9 a lot, and it shot great pics, but then it sat when I got the S95 (then another). I recently gave ...
