I am mostly photographing plants and flowers, and look for a ultracompact camera that will have a good field depth and light. I had Canon SD890 until four years ago. It had a tremendous ability in macro photos, and I got excellent pictures even in 0.5:1. It was stolen :-( and I switched to Canon G12, but now wish to return to the ultracompact size. I am looking for a more recent model that will be a substitute to the SD890, especially in its macro abilities. Thanks for any advice.

I have a Canon Powershot G15 that I purchased from a local camera shop in 2012.  About a year ago the buttons on the back (menu, trash, wheel, etc.) stopped working.  I could turn the camera on and take a picture but could not use the zoom or any of the functions contained on the back panel.  I took it back to the store and they offered to send it in to Canon; they told me since it was past the warranty I would probably be charged for the repair.  To my surprise when I picked up the camera I...

Hi All,  My Canon G12 has been excellent for me for the last couple years.  Suddenly, several (all) videos I recorded yesterday seem to be in high speed mode only, ie: playback on both the camera and the computer are in high speed, maybe 6x?  (ie:what should have been 4 minutes of video plays back in 30 sec). I can't find any settings on the camera that would change the recording speed / playback speed, and it seems this question has never been asked on the Canon Support website.  Any...

Already have to Canon 600's, an STE3-RT & a Yongnuo YNE3-RX under my MR14-EX. Considering adding a third 600EX to my setup, but am Curious about the overall performance & reliability of the Yongnuo equivalent at 1/3 the cost. What's the general consensus? Will I be disappointed with it compared to Canon's units? Cheers. --PhilCanon 7DII, 50D, G12, T-90, T-70, A-1

A friend of mine is tentatively interested in mirrorless cameras.  He currently uses a G12, and is very attached in particular to: - flip out swivel screen - exposure compensation dial - hotshoe He also wants an EVF. Is there a mirrorless camera with all this?  I am having trouble finding one. Thanks in advance!

Hello, I have a canon g12 and an iphone 6 plus.  I was curious which one is the better camera.  I am going on vacation and would like to balance portability with picture quality.  Any thoughts?

I bought an Olympus PEN EPM2 last year with two kit lenses, the 14-42mm and the 40-150mm. My previous camera was a Canon G12. From the beginning I felt that my picture weren't as sharp as some of the ones I got with the G12. I spent a good amount of time learning to use the new camera and my pictures got better. I just bought the 19mm Sigma prime and the difference in sharpness over the kit lenses is profound. Here's my question. I've seen the 12-50mm kit lens available on eBay for under...

My trusty G12 has started to go a bit wonky in it's old age - there is a lose connection on the LCD that turns it off when folded into position, and I think it might be better to put the money towards a new camera. I really like the size, controls, and layout of the G12 so my default choice would be the very similar G16, however I'd like to know if there are any better alternatives. What I'm looking for in order of priority is - Takes great quality images Works well in low light Can take...

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...
