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...

Any tips to take pictures of Night sky with ZS100 ? I use to have Canon G12 and all I did was change my shutter speed to 15sec and I got excellent night sky pictures but with ZS100 all I get is few white dots. Please, advice with some settings for this camera and please post any of your Night Sky pictures. Thanks in advance. Amature Jag :-)

Recently, I accidentally spilled wine on the front of my G12 Canon digital camera.  Now the lens protector is sticking.  Sometimes, it's okay but I think it will be an ongoing problem.  I used Q-tips wet with warm water on the outside and inside the lens perimeter where the protector retracts.  What is the best solution to clean the lens protector before I resort to repair by a licensed camera shop?

Can the Canon G16 use a pocket wizard to trigger strobes? I have tried this and can't seem to get it to work. My old G12 had this ability. I verified the hotshoe works by attached a Canon 580EX II flash to it and the flash works when the shutter is pressed all the way. But my PocketWizard Plus III of the Plus X doesn't work; firmware is up to date on the Plus III. I've sent pocket wizard a email but they are taking their time to respond. I'm a little frustrated but wanted to exhausted all my...

My Canon CB-2LZE battery charger for my G12 is not working. When plugged in, the full light illuminates. When you put a battery in to charge, the charge light also illuminates, but the battery does not charge. Is this charger toast?

Happy Holidays to All. I just sold off my Sony A65 system. Was looking for a traveling companion. I saw the G12 refurbished On the Canon site for 149.00. Thought it seemed like a good although dated camera. Received it a few days ago. Impressed with the image and build quality. Of course buyers remorse settles in. Would I be better off with something like a Lumix DMC FZ70? Also during a chat the rep said their refurbs had the same warranty as new cameras. Thought that was great. In the box it...

I've just bought a Grey Market G16 to replace my well liked G12, stolen when my car was broken open. OK, if you buy Grey Market, you get a better price, but sometimes find that there are problems! I'm in UK and I ordered my G16 from a New York seller - the price was reasonable, it arrived, and it works!  Two problems only: Mains cable provided for battery charger fits a UK socket (good) but is NOT fused (not just bad, but in UK, criminal) - no real problem, I've got lots of spare legit...

My Canon G12 has worked great...till recently, when all the photos I take have a pink hue to them. I have tried everything to figure out how to turn it back to normal - even set it back to the default settings, but the pink hue won't go away. Any idea how I can fix this?

Bought Canon G12 in 2012. The next year: Bad scratches on its lens. Had it repaired in 2014: 130€, but after 1 year there were again scratches on the same positions. Next I bought G1 X. But now I like much to buy G5 X as my real successor for the G12 I liked so much. What about my chance to meet (!) scratches again when the two lens-"lamellae" do not do what they are supposed to do when doing their job?

The 76mm (2.99") height listed for the G5 X is the same as for the G12 and G16 - does that height include the viewfinder up top or is it only from the bottom of the camera to its top panel and dials? My just-deceased G12 lived in a nice, snug fitting case that I carried in my pocket - the case was to protect against pocket lint getting into and jamming the lens extend/retract gears. The quoted size of the G5 X is almost exactly the same and would fit that case as well - unless the viewfinder...
