Hi there, I want to put a filter and suncap on my camera. I have read a lot about this and that the problems whit the edges on the fotos that become black The solution is a adapter from lensmate, but they don't make them any more and I can't find one on ebay or amazon. What options do I have now? 58-> 72mm and get filters 72mm and a suncap? Any idea? Thanks,Nenad

Various reviewers have mentioned difficulty with localised flare when using the camera's widest aperture, particularly for close-up/macro photography. Some claim they've had problems achieving focus in macro mode when using autofocus and have had to use manual focus instead. My questions to any G1 X Mk II owners/users are as follows - 1.) Have you experienced either of these problems and, if so, to what extent, i.e. mildly annoying or highly frustrating? 2.) If these are real problems have...
I have a Canon G1 X and I use it sporadically to shoot home videos. The files I end up with are .MOV, and they are absolutely huge in comparison to other video formats I'm familiar with. About 4GB per minute. What is the best tool for converting these files into a more space-friendly format? (would that be mp4 or something else?) Thank you,
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.

After 2 years of use without any problems, my G1X won't turn on at all. I tried 2 different batteries and couldn't get it to turn on. I checked both batteries with a multi-meter and they tested fine and all the pins on the bottom of the battery compartment seem fine. I have never dropped the camera and it has never seen moisture. I had a similar problem with my old Pro1, but that one would at least give me a compact flash error. Canon tech support offered 2 choices, send it for repair at $250...

Can I record part of a TV show using the G 1X Mark II? If so, how? What cable will I need? I see you can view video you've created on your camera using the Stereo AV Cable AVC-DC400ST cable but can you use that to record to your camera? Aside from this particular cable what would be the normal cable to do this (something I could buy at Best Buy or a similar store)? Thanks. Jeff

Hi- Short summary: Experienced photographer. I've done homework but not tried cameras yet. Narrowed down to 5 (bullet list below) with good deals right now. Budget is $500. Wonder about some things that I may not be able to tell until I've used a camera for a while (2nd bullet list below). Any opinions? Even other cameras that I should consider? ---------------------------------------------- I wish there was a general compact camera forum, as most people seem to compare these cameras across...
I go to trade shows a number of times a year where items of various sizes (from small desktop items to large furniture sized items) are displayed in spaces ranging from small hotel rooms to hotel meeting rooms. I've been using a Canon G9 for many years and it's served me pretty well but I've since come to the conclusion I need some refinements in a camera I'd use. The first is a wider lens. I need to get to 24 or 26mm I think, for being able to get all of a cramped display of larger items...
