terrible images I get using auto mode on the Nikon D750camera.. washout flat looking photos PICTURES LOOK DULL..Never seen such poor images..   My canon 7D on auto get provides excellent result and my canon g15 point and shoot camera provided excellent photos it's annoying to pay lots of bucks on a camera that the auto is that bad yet on program is OK ...

The internal date/time backup battery on my G15 no longer has any charge whosoever and so whenever I start the camera up it asks me for the time. Page 22 in the manual confirms that this is what happens when the backup battery is depleted. It no longer appears to recharge when the camera is off as it should. I can quite good at soldering (electronics is a hobby), but taking apart from thing as complex of as a compact camera is pretty scary.  Has anyone tried replacing the backup battery? If...

Rarely use the video feature, so perhaps I'm missing something, but about 25% of the time I use it 'quickly' (usually in natural areas trying to get a fast shot of wildlife moving) the focus searches for 5 - 10 seconds in reasonable light to get focus at distance.  This doesn't happen with closer scenes, only with those at further distances.  Yesterday for example:  a chance close encounter with a bull moose out at a wetland.  Swirled about and caught it crashing out of the trees and across a...

Hi Everyone,     I recently purchased a FreeWave Fusion Basic wireless transmitter and receiver for use with my hot shoe flash gun (430 EX II). When I connect according to the manual, I am able to hit the pilot button on the transmitter and fire a flash wirelessly. When I connect the flash directly to the PowerShot G15, the camera triggers the flash. However, when I connect the transmitter to the camera, the camera does not appear to detect the transmitter; I know the transmitter is on, as I...

I would value people's opinion here on the image quality of the G1X. I'm posting examples of images taken on my relatively new G1X MK 2. I bought the camera a couple of months ago and didn't have time to use it an awful lot until my annual holiday which I returned from a couple of weeks ago. In recent years I've left my DSLR gear at home preferring the lightness and flexibility of a smaller compact camera. The G1X replaced a G15, in the last few years I've also had a G9, G10 an S95 and I have...

Hey! My name is Michal, I'm the co-founder of a web agency here in Montreal. We're building a new program to educate our partners on digital marketing, and we're preparing ourselves for some "whiteboard" fridays, similar to the MOZ videos. We're using the following hardware / materials: Painted whiteboard wall from ideapaint.com (it's a big glossy). 4 CowboyStudio 4000 watt softboxes. Canon PowerShot G15 720p camera. We've used a similar setup to what MOZ recommended when they built out...

I recently bought this camera together with a fast 64GB card. I am shooting RAW format, and it takes the camera a long time to write each shot, during which all other controls are unresponsive. It seems to me that it ought to be faster, this green blinking light on the viewfinder! I have tried reformatting the card - any suggestions?

Skip to paragraph 3 to avoid the backstory... I currently own two Sony cameras, a DSC-P150 that I got about 10 years ago and a DSC-H7 that I got about 6 years ago. The P150 has been a tank and is still going strong, in spite of a broken battery door and a couple of artifacts on the sensor. I haven't ever been truly happy with the H7. It never has given me the quality or the control that I desired. Sony is great, but I hesitate to get another. I just don't like their quirks. I do not feel like...

I am currently using Canon G15. I shoot RAW, using Lightroom5 for PP. I am happy with picture quality of the G15 as well as handling, except for the viewfinder inaccuracy). I am considering to buy Olympus Stylus1 for longer reach and (much better) VF. Is there anyone, who has experience with both? (preferably with RAW files) 1.How does G15/G16 picture quality (sharpness) in the same focal range compare to Stylus1? 2.I wear glasses, am I likely to have problem with EVF? 3.When using external...

Our local Aussie store is selling the Sony A3500 (slight variant of the A3000) at a really good price. I currently own a Canon G15 which is nice but I've always wanted a large sensor camera as well but finances are limited as I'm a pensioner. My question relates to the Sony as the kit lens is only f4 at the wide end while the Canon (much smaller sensor 1/1.7) is f1.8. i.e over 2 stops brighter. I gather that if I'm shooting in low light with the A3500 at say iso 1600, the G15 would only be at...
