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...
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? HanHul Gouda NL --Always been amature photographer.

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...
Just wondering if anyone is familiar with the part of Spyder software called SpyderProof? It's the final screen presented at the end of calibration, allowing you to view sample images while turning calibration on & off. Would like to know if there is a command to directly launch this part of the software to review the calibration by eye at any time. I know that calibration can be turned on & off via the system tray utility, but direct access to the SpyderProof section of the software would be...
