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´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?

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?

So is it better to have 5 insted of 3 frames and das it matter at all?

I'm stuck in an endless decision loop for a new camera and need a fresh perspective given my needs, planned uses and current gear. If you have time I would welcome your thoughts and suggestions. I know I'm just over thinking this.  We're planning a family vacation to Yellowstone which is prompting the upgrade desire. Uses would be (in order of percentage of use): Family vacations and trips (portrait and landscape), school/soccer events/games, school functions (gym lighting), product...

The slow lens of G1 X has been replaced. A fully articulated LCD would make G1 X Mark ll a perfect camera I was waiting for. What is a reason not to make a really good camera when all required technology exists?
