  • That's great.  I mostly match your settings too, but I also use ALO sometimes and underexpose just slightly in high contrast situations.  It helps compensate while allowing for a little more ...
  • I think the best way to adjust for sharpening is to see what settings work on wide shots of landscapes, since that's where video quality will be at its weakest, since the lower resolution stands ...
  • Yeah, imo it has the best handling and shooting experience of all their smaller sized cameras. All the dials being customizable really makes it a tailored experience. Video X profile will only make ...
  • Yeah this is one of the most noticeable things between the APS-C and 1" Canons.  I noticed it when having the G5X Mark II. Especially once you move up the ISO, skin tones just began to smooth in a ...

    You can download the picture style from Canon here: https://global.canon/en/imaging/picturestyle/file/videocamera.html Then you can use the Picture Style Registration Tool.  Just search for it ...

  • I feel the Powershot line is definitely going through a direction change, but expanding on different product lines. For sure, I think most of the compacts are dead, but I feel they'll keep the ...
  • Yeah Standard and Fine Detail are already fairly saturated to start. The Camera-X profile is desaturated by default as well as having a less contrasty gamma curve, as Canon's idea was probably to ...
  • I haven't used DPP4 for NR much, as I've found Neat Image to be a great platform for NR, so can't say much there. I generally use the Fine Detail picture profile for stills, which I have custom set ...
  • I hope so.  That's what makes these compacts appeal in today's smartphone age - to have much better photo and video quality and user experience.  I think they have the make the hybrid aspect good ...
  • Yeah, I agree.  Even if they kept the current range, but made it a stop faster across the range, so f/2 to f/4, I think it would be a good upgrade.
  • Now to think of it, this actually is a common thread with this series. I had the G1X Mark II for a long while, which I really loved. I probably wouldn't of have upgraded to the Mark III if it ...
  • Yeah, the design and ergonomics of the G1X MIII are a real high point imo.  A real pleasure to use.  Great image quality too for stills. My only real gripe with the camera is the relatively low-res ...
  • It does have optical stabilization. I guess the having a combined IBIS/Optical will just make it even better.  Or another interesting use could be IBIS only, which would allow them to maybe develop ...
  • Yes, my hope is simply a new, faster lens with uncropped DPAF 4K video. That's all that's needed to make a mark IV really work. They already have the sensor for it. Even a one stop faster lens ...
  • Yeah I do love mine as well.  Having that large a sensor in this small of a camera body with full tactile control has been great!
  • A faster lens and DPAF 4K video are all the current G1X would really need imo.  If they ended up keeping the same lens to maintain the size as priority, then adding computational capabilities ...
  • Interesting.  My experience is the G1X Mark III's output seemed better in those variables, which was the reason I stayed with that camera.  Along with the operational feel of using it.  I just ...
  • As someone who also has owned both cameras (and kept the G1X MIII), I agree with most of this. There is a noticeable difference in image quality, which is why I went with the G1X MIII.  The higher ...
  • Ergonomics and flexibility with controls was also the reason I stayed with the G1X MIII over the G5X MII.  The thing I found really annoying and disappointing was the more limited direct control ...
