  • Panasonic's travel zooms are a great option and have been for some time. The fz2000 and TZ100 are both nice, and their cheaper models are good choices for casual shooters. Honestly, I think ...
  • The g9x does a good enough job of replacing the s120 for most things. Similar size and price, overall better image quality. Maybe not as good at macros, but much better in low light. I do think ...
  • Its not even close- current smartphone sales are crushing sales of all cameras, compact/mirrorless/dslr/you name it combined....

  • I haven't noticed that on my g7x I, but if it bothers you enough you may want to call Canon to see if they think it should be serviced under warranty.
  • A basic compact camera these days will tend to have similar image quality to a smartphone, but it does give you more flexibility (zoom, manual controls, etc). To get a noticeable improvement in ...
  • If I were Canon I would have initially marketed the G1X series as the successor to the old Powershot Pro 1. Maybe call it the 1x. Now that the 1" series has so many models, I think they need to be ...
  • I had decided a few years ago to switch from an SLR to m4/3 mirrorless, and then to the Canon g7x. I am still on the fence about whether to go back to something bigger. I enjoyed the image quality ...
  • In what ways do you want to improve over your x30? I would probably say go with mirrorless or a DSLR if you want substantial improvement.
  • Nice shot! I might like the original uncropped aspect ratio better, but otherwise nothing to nit pick.
  • For the g1x iii, I'd love them to simply scale it up to a full aps-c, add in an EVF, and price it at $999. Take my money!
  • If you are up for a little project, you can download the CHDK software for your grandson's G10 and play around with that. It will give you bulb mode for your camera. It is installed right to an SD ...
  • Before doing anything, I would wait for it to totally dry, give it a week or so, and see if it really affects the performance. Small flaws on the outermost lens element are usually very hard to ...
  • I think both look comparable, and the results are pretty good. As others have said, a macro lens won't give you better results, it would just allow you to get closer. Same with buying an m4/3 ...
  • The numbers are almost backward. The higher number models are the smallest and cheapest so start with the g9. g9x is like the modern s90. g7x is slightly larger and adds a longer, faster lens and ...
  • Like the statue, thanks for sharing. Have you noticed any difference shooting below iso 125? I've often heard going below your "base" iso can actually have a negative effect on image quality, ...
  • How will you know in advance when a great image will happen? Storage space is cheap cheap cheap now. No reason to hamstring the quality of all your photos. You can get 32 gb memory cards for $10, ...
  • So half the people commenting love this idea, and the other half think its totally worthless, interesting polarized response to something so apparently benign

  • Replied in G1X Mk III
    I'd like to see a mk iii as well, I am a big fan of the large sensor fixed lens options lately, but the line may feel the squeeze of Canon's desire to protect its mirrorless from above and its ...
  • Replied in G1X Mk III
    I always hoped Olympus would build a fixed lens m4/3 camera to compete with the G1X, I really enjoyed their cameras in the past, great lenses, great processing and very customizable. Not the best ...
  • Replied in No S130?
    Now that so many people have a phone in their pocket with a camera, dedicated cameras are more of a specialty. Sensors are likely mostly going to be limited to 1/2.3" and 1" as other brands won't ...
