This is my first DSLR with the 18-55mm lens that came with the kit, but in about 3k pictures that I've taken with it so far, I am disappointed by how many of them come out blurry compared to my ancient PowerShot A630... that camera beats this one so much with the autofocus, I don't get it. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong or the autofocus is terrible. Much worse in low light obviously, but too much errors in daylight too compared to PowerShot A630. I'll explain an example: I was...
I'm considering a used GF1 with a 14-45mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. Sometimes I need to take photos of insects and plant parts for identification, at ranges from 1-5 cm. Would the 14-45mm lens work for this, or would I need to get a different lens?  Currently I use a Canon Powershot A630 for this, which has excellent close focus, but it's on its last legs.  Thank you!!
I finally decided on a Canon powershot G1x mark2 to replace my well loved powershot A630. (I had my old A630 for 8 years and loved it because I could point and shoot anything in "auto mode" and it would rarely give me a blurry shot)....but finally the flash is having problems charging, so I started shopping for a new camera. I got G1x mark2 because it looked like it might be a good replacement for my A630 BUT.....I am completely frustrated and confused with the G1x mark2. It takes beautiful...
I need to replace a Canon PowerShot A620. It's beginning to come apart at the seams, and I figure new cameras probably have better image quality and features. I was originally looking to spend about $200, but now I'm thinking of either spending less on an ultracompact or more on "last year's" enthusiast compact. I have a very mild brand preference for Canon, but I won't let that prevent me from considering other options. Needs: Fits in my pocket. Let's define this as under 1.4" thick. Fits...
I am looking for a good point and shoot to replace my wonderful but aged A630. With all the options out there like S100, S110, G15, sx260, elph110, elph320 (one of my friends even has a Pan ZS19 that he likes). I want to just use it in Auto mode and take good pictures and videos of the kids and family (JPEG only). Is G15 or S110 an over kill? Does anyone has any recommendation for a point and shoot?Thanks for any recommendations.
