I recently upgraded from a G9 to a G7X and have been noticing it is very difficult to get a sharp macro image. I decided to do some direct comparisons and the problem is far worse than I thought. While the G9 does super sharp macro less than 1cm from the subject, with only slight softening around the edges, the G7X has to be several centimetres away and has terrible distortion everywhere except the centre of the image. I know they had to make compromises to fit such a fast lens into a small...

Last week I borrowed a G9 for long term use.  I will be taking the camera overseas, so I want to have reasonable mastery and understanding. I've been shooting for a few days, reading the manual, and searching the DPR Canon PowerShot forum.  Gradually, I made setting adjustments, etc.  I tried shooting with the RAW and JPG setting.  The developed RAWs came out well, but the JPGs were not to my liking.  (I will try later). Those of you with experience with the G9:  What is your preferred...

Hi all, you may have to forgive me for the question, but I am a beginner and I've just upgraded from my old beloved Canon PowerShot G9 to a more challenging Canon EOS 70D camera. I'm a fan of low- and natural-light photography, and as such I thought I would be in need of a ultra-fast lens. However, I found myself struggling with the much shallower depth of field which is delivered already by the APS-C sensor coupled with the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens which was bundled with the...

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...

I have a Canon G9 and on automatic the photos are perfect, stunning, and certainly standout from the photos I take with my Canon G12 on automatic. I am not a knowledgeable camera person.  I don't own a DSLR.  So I use the Automatic on these two cameras. Just wonder if anyone could give me a suggestion on what I can do to make the G12 shoot quality photos that the G9 can. Thanks.

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, Im planning on doing a music video, but I have little experience with cameras and camcorders. Im really low on budget so I cant afford a professional camera at the moment. But right now I have two cameras: The cannon Powershot G9 and the Cannon Powershot A3500 IS. I want to know which camera would be the absolute best in recording videos? I also want to know how to operate that best camera at the highest performance when recording? Thanks

The pansonic UK web site gives details of this lens below but does not mention whether it is available in both black and silver finishes. I have seen images of a silver version on various web pages but UK retailers only show the black one. http://www.panasonic.com/uk/consumer/cameras-camcorders/lumix-g-lenses/h-fs14140e.html Does anyone have a photo of a Silver GX7 with a silver 14-140 attached? Will it be sold in UK at some time? --Mike...

Hello I am looking for some guidance on my first SLR in a really long time (my first and only was the cannon A2E way back when). Lets just say I am newbie all over again. To will try and keep this short and concise as possible. I am an outdoorsy person and that last cameras I had got destroyed by the elements no matter how hard I tried to keep them safe (cannon G9 and a lessor Nikon PS I don't remember the model number of). The big selling point of pentax is the weather resistance of their...
