Hi forum. I have a G1 X Mark ii for shooting on trips when I need a small camera. Sometimes I use it with the Camera Connect app (version 184.108.40.206, not in the forum's list of software or mobile apps so I can't tag it) to do some remote shooting and downloading JPGs to my phone to preview them. Today, when I transferred images to my computer to work with the RAWs, I realised that when I use the app to shoot remotely, there are no RAW files generated. I can't find any setting in the app...
According to the manual an "IS mode icon" should be present immediately to the left of the "Battery level" icon on the "Shooting (Information Display)" screen. The manual also says that if IS (image stabilisation) is off then the icon is not displayed. This icon is never displayed on my camera no matter which IS mode is set. Can any G1X iii user tell me if this is a standard feature (!) present on their camera? Thanks
From the respective DPR reviews, I get: "The G5 X II comes with an excellent Auto ISO interface, allowing you to specify your desired ISO range, as well as a minimum chosen shutter speed. But you can also have the camera automatically choose a shutter speed based on your focal length, and bias this faster or slower depending on what you're shooting.You can use Auto ISO in manual exposure mode, so you can specify your shutter speed and aperture and let the camera determine the brightness by...
Hi, I am using a 5DMk4 everyday (and happy with it) , but sometime I would appreciate to travel light...then I am currently seeking for a compact with high image quality (RAW is mandatory).... This camera will be used mainly for landscape&architecture during vacation... My research are for : Canon G series, "full frame" (the biggest possible for G series I will say...), Raw, SD card, Battery capacity. What kind of feedback do you have on that subject ? How will be the comparison between...

How well do the Canon Canon PowerShot G1 X series cameras work with speed lights—particularly when doing outdoor portraits where you want to match or overpower the ambient light? The specs say they'll sync up to 1/4000 of a second which is so far beyond what DSLRs can do that it seems like a miracle. The authors of "Multiple Flash Photography" by Rod and Robin Deutschmann make shooting flash with compact cameras seem extremely attractive... What do we think?
Hi all, I am going on a one-week trip to Greece this summer I was thinking of upgrading my system for better image quality(I currently have the Canon G7 X Mark II). The G7X fits in my jeans pocket, but will the G1 X M3 fit the same? if it will not, then I will probably buy the M50+22mm+18-150mm, and use the 22mm for low-light, just at restaurants, and the 18-150 for everyday normal daylight usage. Is the IQ about the same between those cameras? BTW I had a Canon PowerShot G3 X, and it felt...

Hi all, I'm considering picking up the G1 X III as a camera to take with me everywhere. It has just about all the features I'm looking for in a compact zoom. But the external max flash sync of 1/250 seconds is really disappointing for a camera with a 1/2000 second leaf shutter. I hear the internal flash can sync up to 1/2000 seconds without any problem, so my question is: would it be possible to trigger external speedlights in optical slave mode at speeds up to 1/2000 second using the...
