After 2 years of use without any problems, my G1X won't turn on at all. I tried 2 different batteries and couldn't get it to turn on. I checked both batteries with a multi-meter and they tested fine and all the pins on the bottom of the battery compartment seem fine. I have never dropped the camera and it has never seen moisture. I had a similar problem with my old Pro1, but that one would at least give me a compact flash error. Canon tech support offered 2 choices, send it for repair at $250...

If you search Flicker, then there is only 3,454 photos. https://www.flickr.com/search/?text=G1%20X%20II&sort=relevance Also there is no URL in the title of the camera. Why so?

Can I record part of a TV show using the G 1X Mark II? If so, how? What cable will I need? I see you can view video you've created on your camera using the Stereo AV Cable AVC-DC400ST cable but can you use that to record to your camera? Aside from this particular cable what would be the normal cable to do this (something I could buy at Best Buy or a similar store)? Thanks. Jeff

Hi- Short summary: Experienced photographer. I've done homework but not tried cameras yet. Narrowed down to 5 (bullet list below) with good deals right now. Budget is $500. Wonder about some things that I may not be able to tell until I've used a camera for a while (2nd bullet list below). Any opinions? Even other cameras that I should consider? ---------------------------------------------- I wish there was a general compact camera forum, as most people seem to compare these cameras across...

I go to trade shows a number of times a year where items of various sizes (from small desktop items to large furniture sized items) are displayed in spaces ranging from small hotel rooms to hotel meeting rooms. I've been using a Canon G9 for many years and it's served me pretty well but I've since come to the conclusion I need some refinements in a camera I'd use. The first is a wider lens. I need to get to 24 or 26mm I think, for being able to get all of a cramped display of larger items...

Hi, I live in Oslo, Norway, and recently bought the G1X mk2 from a kind photographer who bought it in Japan, and thus has only English and Japanese menus. I use English. Now, I try to set up Connect button using the Wifi menu and connect button to get the Image Gateway service. I can set it up to be used with my iPhone/iPad with the app Camera Window (that was the easy part), but the I have trouble getting the Cloud service and the Image Gateway service. In the Wifi menu on my camera, there´s...

Hi, I´m considering buying a used G1 X mark ii that was bought in Japan, with meny language in just Japanese and English. Does anyone know if it will be possible install a "worldwide version" of the firmware to get other languages? And, is there any differences with the Japanese version of this camera versus the European one (except the bigger finger/hand grip)? Thanks for any help!

Hi, am looking for a little assistance.  Have researched online looking for an option for a hard reset for a G1X to see if that will assist. The work camera is a work camera, we have been on hiatus for a while with minimal, not so knowledgeable people using the camera, and now need the camera is required it appears that the LCD display does not display.  I've tried the down arrow solution where the display may have been turned off, but no joy.  The camera resides in a small African country...

Does anyone know if the G1 X Mark II uses the full sensor data to generate a video frame in the video mode, or does it sub-sample the full data set by techniques such as line-skipping?
