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...

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?
