  • I'd say that at least the one with the lighthouse conforms to the definition. Did you compare them at original size? These JPEGs are straight out of camera. No editing whatsoever. I chose the ...
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery
  • Thank you for reminding me that that was an option! I haven't used the galleries on here for many a year. After I edit this batch with acceptable results I'll do a full G5X II review. Note the ...
  • Added 2 photos to their gallery
  • Replied in Canon G5X
    I thought hard and tried a number of cameras before buying the G5XII and am glad that I did. The IQ is better than my DSLR from 2014, even in low light. They have improved the sensor technology a lot.
  • I think that both bodies have advantages, but the improved lense in the mark two is worth it for me. I get great macro shots on the long end. The only negative thing that I can say about it is ...
  • DNGs didn't work either... This one is more obvious because I was shooting into the sun. ...
  • I would, but I can't log into my Flickr account for some reason and my Photobucket account has been closed... This banding is just the typical blue sky banding.
  • Created discussion thread G5XII Banding..
    I managed to take quite a few photos before being locked in and have been really impressed with the IQ except when there is a blue sky. I tried to change to Canon's software and use the standard ...
  • Likewise. I love mine too. Sold my DSLR after the first week. Been really impressed with the IQ so far. It's just not feasible to carry all that gear when travelling if I'm not getting paid for it...
  • Absolutely. I decided to take a chance and was rewarded. I've never shot with L lenses before, but I have high standards for my photography and with a bit of work a lot is possible with just about ...
  • For what it's worth, I just bought the G5X II to replace my Canon 700D and love it. The IQ rivals and even bests the DSLR with the 18-135mm STM (but not the 24mm STM or 35mm STM prime lenses) in ...
  • Well, I have thirty days to figure out if it is a defect, I suppose. Thanks for letting me know your opinion.
  • Thank you for that information. I forgot to mention that Canon also confirmed the zero degree C minimum operating temperature. I shot in -1 to 1C weather for just under two hours today without ...
  • They told me to contact Canon. Canon said try it out again in the cold and in warmer weather and see if it happens again. They said the processor may have frozen, but it was only -2C, not that ...
  • I'm going to contact Adorama about it tomorrow and see what they say. Other than that, love the camera and output! IQ is comparable to my 2013 700D in many situations! Viewfinder is actually better!
  • Thanks for trying. I reckon that it would be similar. But do you think that by shooting in several degrees under that for an hour that that would cause it to freeze up like that? I still shot for ...
  • Created discussion thread Canon G5X II Review/Freezing?
    I have had this camera for several days now and have to say that I love the ease of use. I bought it in the hopes of selling my DSLR and lenses and have been putting it through its paces to see if ...
  • Oh, nice. So, other than converting to DNG I can pretty much use my old work flow with the G5X II, without having to upgrade Photoshop?
  • Created discussion thread DNG Lense Corrections?
    Hello there, I just purchased a Canon G5X II and am planning to sell my DSLR kit (if the IQ is "good enough" for my purposes). I use Adobe Photoshop CS 6 and really don't want to upgrade at the ...
