  • I looked at some pictures taken recently on my iPhone 7 at 1:1 on my 23” monitor. Close up, the images look really blocky, even compared to a £100 Canon Ixus compact. Photos taken on smartphones...

  • Why not just buy the Canon lens hood? It's a very nice accessory and doesn't make the camera feel any bigger as it is the same diameter as the front control ring.
  • Generally speaking, the larger the sensor the better the camera will be for landscapes. You get higher resolution and better dynamic range. The main optical advantage of the G5X is the light ...
  • I'm confused - too much choice! What's the diffeerence between these: Hoya YHDPOLC049 HD Circular Super Multi-Coated Polfilter https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hoya-YHDPOLC049-Circular-Multi-Coated-Polfilt ...
  • Created discussion thread 49mm filters for G1X III?
    Hi, I have just brought the Canon LH-DC110 lens hood for my PowerShot G1X III and really like it. I am now looking to buy some 49mm filters to attach to the outer 49mm thread on the hood. I need a ...
  • Click on full size images and there should be an info button in the bottom right corner of the lightbox.
  • It’s hard to tell because the image quality of the G7X was very good. The extra pixels of the G1X make a difference for landscape photography. The G1X is stunning quality for portrait close ups at ...
  • Thank you. I agree that there is something to be said about learning how to use the camera you have got, even if it's only a compact camera with slightly inferior optics. These new advanced ...
  • I am primarily a landscape photographer and I shoot entirely with Canon G7X, G7X III and recently G1X III. People assume I use a DSLR when they see my photos. www.scotthunterphotography.com I don't ...
  • Replied in Great Video
    Which camera do you think is best for astrophotography use? The brighter lens of the G7X II or larger sensor of the G1X III? I have used both and have had similar results (I tended to use f/2.8 on ...

    Fantastic tip, I have never used burst mode. I must try it. This is how I do it. On my G1X III, I use 24mm / f2.8 and ISO 3200 with 10sec exposure and RAW. I then manual focus on the brightest star ...
  • Only relevant for action photography or distant people shots. For wide-angle still/landscape scenes, the G1X III has a clear advantage with better dynamic range, higher resolution and a slightly ...
  • Interesting. I think the G1X images look slightly richer too. Definitely has the edge with dynamic range in daylight conditions.
  • It's all plastic though. Spec isn't everything - you get what you pay for IMHO. The PowerShot G1X series is expensive for what it is, but at least it feels premium, and for many people how a ...
  • From reading the rest of this thread, it sounds like the 37mm thread on the lens isn't recognised by Canon as a thread for a filter. However, I can't read anywhere on the Canon website which says ...
  • Is this the one to buy then? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hoya-YHDPOLC049-Circular-Multi-Coated-Polfilter/dp/B009WDIMH4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1523538566&sr=8-1&keywords=49mm+hoya+hd
  • But if you are caught out in a heavy rain shower you are £550 poorer...
  • Right, so you need a 49mm filter for the lens hood? That's what I thought, but someone else on here said that 37mm filters are compatible with it?
  • If money was no object, I'd have two: the G1X II and G1X III - the former for sports/action, and the latter for landscapes. With compact cameras, the fact is that there is no one camera which can ...
  • So will the 37mm Hoya HD Circular Polarizer fit onto the Canon LH-DC110 Lens Hood? Is this the one: Hoya YHDPOLC037 HD Circular Super Multi-Coated Polfilter for 37 mm Filter https://www.amazon.co.u ...
