Video specs / crops

The G100 can shoot 4K but it does so with a significant crop. This crop becomes more extreme if you wish to utilize the camera's more powerful stabilization modes, which makes it extremely limiting for vlogging. There's no way to make it look more positive: the G100's stabilized 4K is not very usable for the camera's explicitly stated purpose.

It's a happier story in 1080 mode. Increased stabilization requires cropping (as is necessarily the case for EIS), but this effect is rendered less severe because the unstabilized 1080 footage is taken from the full width of the sensor.

The camera also offers quick and slow modes, where it can take output 4K 60 fps capture as 1/2 speed 30p, there are also options for 1/2 speed 60p and 1/2 and 1/4 speed 30p in 1080 mode. The camera also offers sped-up footage taken from very slow fps capture, again output as either 60 or 30p files.
