I've been looking at both LensCoat and OP/Tech offerings...and their dimensions...and it doesn't seem like either have one that will fit properly on this camera because of the viewfinder. I had the LensCoat one for a Canon G12 and it was perfect...fit well and gave just enough protection that you could put it in a travel bag or carry it. And it didn't interfere with the strap. Love to find the equivalent for my M10 with the 14-42 zoom attached. Anyone find one of these that fits...
My three year old Powershot G12 has a problem with the live view mode of the LCD display. When in the normal shooting position it will rapidly oscillate between normal view and a mirrored view of the scene, as if I was swinging the display out so that I could view it from the front of the camera, as if to frame a self-portrait (can I still call it a 'selfie' if it's not a smartphone?) I think the fault lies somewhere within the mechanism which detects which orientation the display is in, but...
I have recently started using my G12 a lot more and have found that when in full manual mode, with ISO, aperture and shutter speed set, turning the flash on makes very little difference to the final result. The exposure remains very dark in low light settings and the flash seems to fire at a very minimal level.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. I enjoy reading through the message board but this is my first time writing. I'm looking to purchase a new camera something bigger then a point and shoot but smaller then a DSLR. I've narrowed my search down to the Sony a6000 and the NEX6. My previous camera I owned was a Canon G12 but I would definitely not call myself a master of it. I do enjoy the manual settings of the camera and have a very basic understanding of the features that camera presented...
I have a Canon G9 and on automatic the photos are perfect, stunning, and certainly standout from the photos I take with my Canon G12 on automatic. I am not a knowledgeable camera person. I don't own a DSLR. So I use the Automatic on these two cameras. Just wonder if anyone could give me a suggestion on what I can do to make the G12 shoot quality photos that the G9 can. Thanks.
Received my new RX10 four days ago. How are you finding battery life and is an external charger recommended? Going to Patagonia and Terra Del Fuego for three weeks in October. I never needed an extra battery on my older cameras, Minolta A200 & Canon G12, on other long trips. Bill Borne can probably give me the answer as he just came back from a long trip.
