Hi I have today a old Canon PowerShot G12 that I purchased in 2010. Soon I will travel around Asia and want a camera that I can take good picture with in city environment and also outside like temples in Cambodia etc.  I want to purchase a new camera, but I am beginner and don't know what camera to choose. I have looked at Panasonic Lumix LX15)and Sony RX100 III What cameras do you recommend me to purchase?

I'm upgrading from Canon G12 with Ikelite housing to the M5.  There are currently two housings I've found available for M5, the Ikelite and Nauticam.  There is quite a difference in cost and I'm wondering if peoples experience shows the extra cost of the Nauticam is worth it for durability, functionality, port options, (size?).  I plan to use EF-M 11-22mm and EF 100 f2.8 macro lenses.

Hi all, new to forum, thanks in advance for your generous replies! My G12 popped out of my jacket pocket and dropped right into the Detroit River.  Fished it out and dried it carefully.  Issue is a spot on the inside of the lens.  Looks like water a water spot would look like in the centre of the interior of the lens. Can this be fixed?  Of course without having to send it to Canon and have a new lens installed. Thanks, Chris

Purchased a second hand faulty G16 inc charger and battery for a very low price, opening it revealed a badly corroded main board, both sides which I removed and cleaned but to no avail. Any one know of a cheap source for replacement boards? Cant wait to get this camera going, externally it looks mint, really want to experience that very fast lens at the long and short ends. It will complement my G12 and GX1 quite nicely I think. The origional G series cameras are just so good especially the...

Hello everyone, I am newbie in camera topic. Please forgive if you see typos in my text. The issue started when suddenly the camera didn't turn on time to time without any reason. Took it to Canon Canada and they told me that the parts are not available and offered G16 instead which I refused. I received it. I start turning on , but when I'm zooming in and out it make a weird noise and the there are hundreds of very thin horizontal line in pictures. Attached is one of them. Also, I noticed...

I just purchased EFM 28mm f3.5 macro lens. I also have EFS 60mm f2.8 macro. I did a comparison with these and the [EFM 55/200mm stm lens + Raynox DCR 250]. The EFM 28mm lens is nice...compact & light weight . For 1X needs to be very close. Both the 28mm & 60mm macro lens  are easy to use and focus to infinity. I Can get the same mag. with the EFM 55/200mm stm & Raynox DCR250. But this is not as convenient to use as the 2 macro lens. I've also compared the DCR 250 on the G1X & G12 with very...

Hi there - I know this exists but i can't seem to find it - in MANUAL mode - I want to be able to quickly have the camera guess what my settings should be - on my Canon G12 it's a star button, so useful! I think it's more than one button on the S110, does anyone know what that is - and can it be reprogrammed to be one button? Thanks!

Hi! My name is Rafael, I'm from Brazil and been reading DPreview for many years now. I like photography and never intended it to be more than a hobby, just for fun. I know the basics, did some work with DSLR and I think it's cool large cameras with lots of lenses... but in the end I really prefer smaller cameras (learnt this when I was abroad, concentrated more on getting the "perfect shots" than actually enjoying the place). Currently I got a Canon G12 and didn't feel the need to upgrade, it...
