  • You will want at least one spare battery (battery life is not that great) and a simple but convenient camera bag. I use the Canon bag (EDC-100) which is a good fit with storage for the spare ...
  • As a reformed professional pastry chef, I would say you chose wisely. I've been using my Kitchenaid KS55 for over 30 years without a hiccup (if I am recognizing correctly -- perhaps hers is a step ...
  • My G5X-II shows this message for a second or two if I turn it to Auto then power it on, but then it disappears. (I never noticed because I don't use Auto mode myself.) Are you saying this message ...
  • I use my G5X-II for everything, including outdoor winter shooting, but I highly recommend keeping a spare battery (or two) in an inside jacket pocket ready to swap out. The low battery tends to ...
  • I have done this with my G5X-II using the Canon Connect app and the camera on a tripod. The camera broadcasts its own WiFi signal that should reach sufficiently, and the app allows zoom and focus ...
  • Thank you for this. The info from your older post does describe me (deleting files routinely). I just formatted (low level) and will hope for the best. Dan
  • Admittedly, this was a matter of taking a photo then checking IMDB, but it's a real movie and I couldn't resist. Pet people!
  • I am currently visiting Brooklyn, NY and did some walking yesterday, including a brief tour of the DUMBO (Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass) neighborhood.
  • Created discussion thread G5x-II WiFi failure
    Yesterday I transferred a file to my Android phone using Canon Connect normally, using the native WiFi signal from my camera. Today I am getting stuck at "searching for access points." I have ...
  • If you are considering a G5 X plus an SX 50, as I understand your original post, have you considered the G5 X Mark II as a single option instead? I know the newer model is more expensive than the ...
  • On the G5X-II while using the EVF, I can move the focal point by moving a finger tip around on the blank LCD. I have mine set to limit this to the left side of the LCD to avoid accidental movement ...
  • June is a very brief season for lupines in northern New England. This is one of several fields in Sugar Hill, NH. I'm not sure how the in-camera panorama will fare in compression, even with ...
  • I love that you know that --  or even if it is just that you know enough about the equipment involved to track down the information. I always thought I was just here to learn a little about ...
  • All fantastic shots as usual, bmike. Fpr some reason this goose (I think) really spoke to me -- maybe it's the detail of the tooth-like beak. I know they can be quite aggressive and are even often ...
  • This might be a slightly different approach. For me, digital zoom is the second thing I disabled on any new camera (after all of the sounds), but I certainly understand that is only my personal ...
  • I've been happy with my Canon EDC-100 case. It is a good fit for the G5X-II and has a front pocket that holds my spare battery and SD card. The back has a fixed leather (probably "leatherette" of ...
  • Replied in Requa Entry #1
    Thanks for taking the hosting duty, Jethro. I'll kick-start the mini with an entry from my archives. If I remember correctly from the whale watching guide, this was a norther right whale spotted ...
  • There are obviously many differing views of exhibits and the role of hosting. I no longer see exhibits as detrimental, but I can see that it is frustrating from the persepctive of the host to try ...
  • I would have no objection to this but I do have an alternative proposal to consider. Recent discussions within the mini challenges and elsewhere have made it clear that many of the members posing ...
  • I do not feel bound by legal restrictions, but I have not had living grandparents during the digital era and do not have grandchildren (c'mon, kids!) so my personal options are limited, and I ...
