  • Good choice!  I have the FZ1000 and an FZ200.  At lower ISO, I really can't see much difference; but at higher ISO ,the lower noise of the FZ1000 makes a big difference. Safaris always seem to have ...
  • My best guess is that the G5X, and maybe the G3X, are due for upgrade to the Mk II level by addition of the DIGIC 7 processor, and some other updates.  Canon is still controlling retail prices on ...
  • Thanks, now I understand your motivation.  I have used a Lensmate adapter on a G11 and then on my G15 for years with no problems.  In both cameras, the adapter itself protrudes about 3 mm.   I ...
  • I agree with all your comments about the G7X II; except it being 2.5 stops faster than the G9X. At 84 mm, the G9X is f/4.9.  At 84 mm, the G7X II is already at f/2.8.  Two stops slower than f/2.8 ...
  • I haven't been bothered by the corners at wide angle; probably because my favorite focal length is 35 mm for a wider view. I wanted to replace my S90 and G15, and first tried an RX100 M1; but I ...
  • I have two thoughts/questions. First, the Magfilter seems more expensive than the Lensmate, so why did you pick the Magfilter? Second, does the Magfilter adapter with the red part on the back ...
  • I just got a G7X II last Saturday, so I'm still sorting things out.  It does do better indoors than my G15.  At least a stop better, maybe 1.5 stops.  I have not had much chance yet to try out AF ...
  • I'm responding to both prior posts on use of the Digital Multiplier. Assigning the DZ to a programmable control is a good idea; but I'm out of buttons to reprogram.  However, I will think further ...
  • I just got a Canon G7X II.  I have only had it a couple of days, so most of my time has been test photos, learning the menus and controls, and setting up all the options.  I prefer the longer lens ...
  • Andy, Thanks for the post.  I've spent most of the weekend learning the menus and controls on the G7X II. Pictures are very sharp and clear; but nothing worth printing - it's mostly a matter of ...
  • Chaplain Mark, Well, if you get stuck, just post a problem shot or two and let us try and figure it out.  The Mk II versions of the G_X cameras have a different processor (DIGIC 7 Vs DIGIC 6) and ...
  • Yes, it seems to me that Canon's design people actually use cameras, so they have an understanding of what it takes to actually take pictures.  Further they have a corporate standard for color, so ...
  • Created discussion thread Just got a G7X II
    I've been saving for one of these for a while now.  Saturday, I went and bought one, along with a spare battery.  I've had enough time for some testing, so I thought I'd pass some of that along. Fi ...
  • For birding, I'd go with the SX50 or some newer small sensor camera with better EVF and LCD resolution.  I have owned the SX50HS and currently have an FZ200 and FZ1000.  The FZ200 goes to 600 mm, ...
  • I have the FZ1000 and the FZ200.  After I got the FZ1000 I felt I no longer needed the FZ200, so I sold it.  But then I missed it in several area, and got another (Chinese built) FZ200.  There is ...
  • The specifications say magnesium.
  • I wear looser fitting trousers, so the G7X II fits very comfortably.  It also fits easily in a shirt pocket.  I fit all my smaller cameras with a neck cord (single point attachment) as opposed to ...
  • I can highly recommend the FZ1000.  For a flash, try a used Olympus FL36R.  Much less money than the very, very similar Panasonic version and works fine on the FZ1000 in the hot shot, and ...
  • Replied in FZ1000 for me
    For me, it's going to be the other way round.  my best camera is the FZ1000, and the G7X II will be the supplement, even though it may be used more often. I did try a Sony RX100, and just hated ...
  • Tony, You've totally missed my point.  Whether Sony or Nikon is in third place on some other basis is not relevant to the Sony announcement.  It may very well be BS; but that's what marketing and ...
