  • Good shots, the blown glass shot is my favourite. How are you attaching the raynox 250, just clipping it onto the end of the lens?
  • That's an unusual little flower. Good shot.
  • Good shots Mark. The bee is excellent.
  • Hi Laura, have you tried the options in the My Color menu? There are some instructions here (the screenshots of the camera show the White Balance settings but the text is ...
  • Yes get rid of it, it's doing my head in! It is causing Safari on my ipad to crash every few minutes.
  • Thank you Konrad.
  • Created discussion thread TZ70/80/90 AF Macro
    What's the minimum focus distance like on the TZ70/80/90 cameras when zooming? I've looked at the specifictaions and see that in normal focus mode the minimum focus distance is 50cm at wide angle ...
  • it's too expensive for what it is. The sensor is nice but it is supposed to be entry level and there's no viewfinder or mode dial.

  • Replied in G3X
    Thanks for commenting and sharing your photo. Your eastern amberwings are tiny! My shot is actually of a mature male common darter . Here is another view of it.
  • Replied in Canon SX620HS
    Thank you. They are similar to what I've seen from other PowerShots with that 20MP sensor and the DIGIC 4+ processor. You should be able to squeeze a bit more out of it by using P mode and making ...
  • Replied in G3X
    Thank you Mark. Canon did a good job and they fixed it quicker than I expected.
  • Replied in G3X
    I got my G3X back from Canon. Here are a couple of shots I took when testing it out after the repair. lovely lake common darter dragonfly
  • Replied in Canon SX620HS
    What mode were you shooting in? In some high contrast situations the auto modes enable icontrast which bumps up iso. Try shooting in Program mode with icontrast disabled. Can you upload a few shots ...
  • Hi Bob, I use DPP and Picasa. I adjust my raws with DPP, convert and save the ones I want to share as jpegs and then crop and tag the jpegs with Picasa. These tutorial videos produced by Canon are ...
  • I took my old SX240 with me today because my G3X is with Canon being repaired. I think this will be the SX240’s last outing though, the mode dial is failing. I can't complain, I've had my money's ...
  • If you are shooting raw, Canon's Digital Photo Professional will do a much better job batch converting CR2 files than Faststone Image Viewer. The latest version 4.6.30 can be dowloaded from here ht ...
  • If Canon decide to update the G5X they should go back to the G16 style body. Keep the articulated screen by all means but go back to fuller G16 body because it's more comforable to hold and would ...
  • That's the impression I get from comparing similar Canon and Panasonic cameras. Canon have the edge when it comes to IQ and colour but Panasonic beat Canon on features. I'm not bothered about 4k ...
  • Thanks fellas. It did it again earlier but instead of taking a shot after the freeze a Lens Error message appeared on the screen and the camera shut down. I've been able to replicate the problem ...
  • Created discussion thread Mini lock up G3X
    Has anyone experianced a mini lock up or freeze with their G3X or other G series Digic 6 camera? It's happened a few times now. I half press the shutter as ususal, focus locks, I fully press the ...
