  • Replied in Question:
    Thank you all who responded honestly. I've been a member a long time watching fora that relate to more specific Canon products than I can see on the more full frame oriented Fred Miranda. DPR has ...
  • Replied in Surely
    You are the joke! This is the kind of snarky response to an honest question that I expected from you lot. Discussion, interchange, nonsense just egotism.
  • Replied in Question:
    Before I quit posting on DPR altogether, I'd like to know why my panorama post isn't worthy of any response at all. Is posting about a camera that can actually build panoramas cell phone style not ...
  • It seems a unique feature of the G1X3 is its built in panorama builder. This thread seems to confirm this. I post this here because you folks are more familiar than I am with Powershot ...
  • Replied in Panorama
    Now if anyone knows of a nice panorama viewer for Mac or iPad I'd like to hear about it.  What I'm looking for fills the screen with the narrow side of the image and smoothly pans across the long ...
  • Replied in Panorama
    One of the fairly unique features of my G1X3 is its panorama builder. Put it in SCN mode (I have panorama as default) choose a direction, hold the shutter button and pan. The camera assembles the ...
  • You are I'm sure correct. Just some off-topic fantasizing. My G1X3 is lighter than the EF-S lens and comes with a camera. :) Actually for the M, the 11-22 + EF-S 35 f2.8 macro + EF-S 55-250 makes a ...
  • I had the original G1X from its release until the G1X3's release. It did only one thing well, take nice still images. I could never use it for anything moving. And its underwater housing was huge. ...
  • When I travel I usually take my 5D4 plus a couple Ls. But my G always goes. Its the perfect backup, street, and alternate camera. When I have the 100-400 on my DSLR the G covers the rest. But you ...
  • Yes, I played with it after reading your first post.  Now I have two buttons that do it.  We shall see who wins. :)  I originally programmed the Record button to center the AF point but its flat ...
  • See, the manual doesn't say that. It says that after pushing the AF Point button you can push the Info button to center. Which it does, a two step, two button process. Now after you press the AF ...
  • True, but I've found it can take a long time just to find a subject in the manuals.  With the M6II many specific questions don't seem to be addressed at all.  Don't ask me which ones, they're gone ...
  • I've been fiddling with stacking with various cameras for a while now.  While my M6II makes it dirt simple.  I've done this manually just by shooting, moving the focus point and shooting ...
  • I trust the M6II lens mount to carry my 100-400 II + 1.4XIII which I have done many times. The 70-300 IS II is one of my favorite lenses on my M and has spent many hikes hanging from my camera ...
  • I know you know how to use your camera so I'm not questioning that. I've been using my G1X3 heavily since I bought it in 2018. Many thousands of images and my keeper rate has been near perfect. ...
  • Probably true. I thought I was just responding to criticisms of my original post on the subject. I really don't know how to respond to this. Sorry to those who thumbed up if it was to a previous ...
  • I'll have to see if I have that set or not and then try to remember to use it. :) Thanks for the tip! This is the reason I follow these fora. Edit:  I had the record button set to do that and the ...
  • Ok still APS-C to APS-C. Yes the 6DII is much bulkier, especially with that STM lens. I hadn't realized how big it was. I mostly use f4 L zooms on FF and these are quite large, even the RF Ls. As ...
  • I was comparing it to the EF 24-105 f3.5-5.6 STM on the FF 6D2.  Apples to apples.
  • IMHO the only feature difference that favors the RP is its focus stacking ability, but this is only relevant to me. I traded my 5D3 for it to get some of the features like the touchy flipscreen ...
