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. Once I go to just aperture mode or shutter mode the flash comes on full and lights up the exposure quite well. I would have thought that with TTL the flash level would have adjusted to...

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.

Does anyone know if a Canon EF mount rear cap is compatible with the LA-DC58K adaptor for the Canon G12 camera? Or suggest one that is if not.Reason I ask is I would prefer to keep my tele convertor permanently attached to the adaptor, to save pulling the whole thing apart into numerous pieces every time I use it. Obviously the threaded teleconvertor rear cap will not fit the bayonet mount.Thanks

Hi, I'm thinking to buy a new camera. The following conditions/situations/environments are the most common ones that I take photos and videos. - Indoor or low light, parties/social events, taking photos of moving kids - Need a not-that-big size camera, but can produce good image quality. I do not often use flash. It's because I'd like to capture people's natural moment. The big camera and flash get people's attention easily, so they often interrupt people to be natural. In conclusion, low...

I have a G12 Canon that I am very happy with but it is well used and needs updating. I previously had a G11 and was also extremely happy with it. I am reluctant to got to the G16 as it does not have the Foliage aspect in the settings. I am looking for this particular setting in a camera as I bushwalk in mountains and it does justice to the scenes, as well as a very good macro setting. Any ideas? About the same size as a G12 canon for ease of carrying.
