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

I've tried to find info on the actual screen and EVF refresh rate when the display priority is set to smooth with no success. Could be 60hz but anyone has the official info?

Looking into the Canon G1X III pros/cons, I notice that it has a separate lens cap, not an auto-open integrated cap. Does anyone know whether this 37mm filter-thread size cap from Olympus works?(It's designed for the Olympus 14-42 EZ zoom.)

I wanted to ask if anyone had thoughts on shooting with the built in flash. i love this camera for the portability. I am a corporate photographer and travel the world and when I am on assignment and not on assignment I just don't like carry my Canon Mark IV's with me. I guess after so many years I just want to streamline on my personal time. So I got this great little camera and love it but for those night shoots where I want to have some fill, the built in flash is weak and even with the...

The manual focus implementation on canon powershot cameras is the clunkiest thing I've ever used. When turning the ring at a normal speed, I have to turn the front ring ~20 times to get from closest focus to infinity. If I make really fast erratic turns I can get through the range in fewer turns, but then I lose all precision. This is on my new G1X III, but I experienced the same thing on a G7x II and G9x II. There are other compact camera manufacturers that have, in my opinion, implemented...

The Washington Capitals just won hockey's Stanley Cup and I was at the victory rally on the National Mall today. I had my G1x M III set at aperture preferred. One can change the aperture by moving the dial on the upper right front of the camera. But, I noticed that while holding the camera, my finger often moved the dial and changed the aperture. Is there a way to lock the aperture or shutter speed so that you don't mistakenly change it?

Doing street photography, very often I shoot from the hip, without bringing the camera up to the eye and without using the screen. Now, considering its rather modest battery life, I wonder if there is a way to close the screen (facing the camera body) AND deactivate the VF at the same time... I have looked up in the user guide and also extensively played with the camera menus, but I haven't found it so far. Thank you in advance for your help!.;-) --https://www.flickr.com/photos/zemzem/

One of my biggest pet peeves with all cameras is just how cumbersome it is to get my photos off the camera. Especially when compared to how easy it is to instantly share a picture from my phone's camera, and the way my phone's pictures are automatically synced to Dropbox. I'm intrigued by the G1 X Mark III, but I'm not buying another standalone camera until connectivity improves a lot. For comparison, I now own a Nikon D5500, and I find the process of connecting that to my phone to be...

Just wonder, anyone knows about a BULB mode on this camera and what's the maximum shutter speed? Thanks! --Vlad Meytin | www.instagram.com/vmwelt | www.vladsm.com | www.fb.com/vmwelt | http://500px.com/vmwelt
