Re: You will love shooting with the G1X mk1 :-)

The G1X original is my favorite travel camera, especially for indoor shots in museums, cathedrals and other low light venues. The colors are stellar and images very sharp right OOC. It takes a little getting used to, to realize that you occasionally have to flip over to Macro if you need to be a little closer to the subject than specs allow. But I've found that to be very intuitive and can anticipate doing that before I even try to focus on a closer subject. It takes less than a second to make that quick change. Here is a gallery from Paris where I used the G1X for all these images.

…. and like the preious poster mentioned, the flip screen is essential. I've had several G series cameras with it, and that was one major reason I was not interested in the  mk II.  I just didn't like the new LCD design.

Have fun with the G1X, and show us some pictures !
