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...
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...
