I have G12 and it's started open the lenses have way and then all the way very slowly. The same is happening when I close the camera. I didn't drop or damage my camera. Maybe I should clean it up? And how? Thank you for all your responds!

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...

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...
