When I press the "Func. Set" button to access the Function Menu in shooting mode, the display always opens up at the AWB menu item initially. I'd prefer to have it open up highlighting the first item in the menu instead. I found the only way to do this is to use the MENU button to access the FUNC. Menu Layout menu item and deselect AWB. Does anyone know why the Function Menu uses AWB as the default item on which to open?

Hi there, I have a Canon SLR (which i'm still learning how to use) and had a Canon powershot a few years ago (it died unfortunately). That said, i'm happy to deviate for the right camera! I'm heading to South America for 3 months and want a compact camera with a decent zoom that's good for travelling. I don't want one with detachable lenses (I like to travel simply). Any suggestions? The Panasonic lumix DMC-FZ1000 sounds great but is a little heavy (831g), whereas the canon g16 is lighter,...

Please help me decide. Quality shots with a long focal lens in a compact body seems impossible. Where to compromise? My very old TZ copes well with well lit situations but always struggles with poorly lit events eg parties, concerts, shows, night landscapes etc. The 2 powershots will, I'm sure, deal admirably but neither has the longer lens capability of the TZ60. Will I be satisfied with the minimum 3.3f of the TZ? Will it have features to enable reasonable shots in low light situations? Is...

I want the best of all worlds in one small compact - advanced features, long zoom and great quality photos. I can't have it all I know, but please help me decide. Areas of most struggle are always those with low light. Evening landscapes and portraits and also indoor entertainment events eg concerts or parties. Can the panasonic deliver in these circumstances or will I be left disappointed? Thanks in advance for any tips.

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...

Hi, my whole family is into mountain Biking, so how well does this camera perform for action pictures & slow motion movies?  It seems to be good for my other uses, but need crisp action like in Sequence shooting. Rob

Does anyone know where to get DPP for my new G16?  In the software and drivers section for the G16 on the Canon web site, there is a DPP update, but not DPP itself.  Since the G16 package does not include a CD, I have nothing to update. I have had no luck searching the Canon web site - but maybe someone here can help me.

Hi all, I saw a good deal on a used Canon G16 at B&H, so I snapped it up.  They rated it a 9 on their used scale, and I know they are considered very reputable.  I'm still learning about photography, so I wondered, why type of things should I look at on the camera to make sure it's good?  I want to weed out any issues with it before the return window closes. Thanks! Anne

It's getting harder and harder to wade through endless superficial reviews, manufacturer product descriptions that only hit the highlights, and manuals that are silent or vague on various issues.  so I'm hoping that the community can help narrow the field for: A reasonably small (say, size of G16 or smaller) camera with the following: --Viewfiinder (not just a screen) --At least 10x zoom --At least 5fps burst shooting (full res) --At least 6-8 seconds burst shooting at the above speed (full...
