Hi all I am shopping for a compact cam and a gimbal for video shooting. My camera shortlist is Sony ZV-1 Vs. Canon G7 X III but I didn't make up my mind so far. For the Gimbal my short list is: FeiyuTech G6 Max 3 It's my prefered one because it's compatible with a wider range of cameras, including the Sony ZV-1. its max payload is 1.2Kg/2.65lb Zhiyun Crane M2 Seems good but but it doesn't seem to be compatible with the Sony ZV-1. its max payload is 720g/1.58lb only Both weigh practically...

Hi all I do videos mainly outdoor just for the fun, not professionally. I am no doing action video either. Currently it's with my smartphone and a Hohem gimbal but it has many shortcomings. I also use sometimes my Sony RX10 M3 which is very capable for video but is so heavy I need a tripod, so it has limited applications. Therefore I need a light weight (less than 0.7lb) cam to use with a gimbal. I still own an old Canon G15 which would be OK if only it could be remotely controled (by the...

I'm torn between an older RX100 (maybe 3 or 4) and a G7Xii.  The exterior styling of the RX100 just does not light up my brain.  Are there any good articles, maybe from Sony designers, that discuss why they settled on that exterior design for so long?  I know I can add skins and stick on grips, but that just kind of annoys me a little.  Maybe if I learned more about the reasoning is appreciate it more.

I just tried using DDP 4 seriously on some raw images from my G7 X Mk II. I'm used to darktable applying lens correction automatically to images from this camera. I see a lens correction  feature in DPP 4 but it seems to be for EOS lenses only. How does one apply lens correction to Powershot-like cameras? Or is DPP  4 not really the right tool to use? If so, what is recommended by Canon for post processing raw images from this type of  camera?

I’m looking for a camera that is pocketable, has at least 1” sensor and 100mm lens with low aperture. On paper G5 X Mark II seems like the camera for me. Unfortunately, I had bad experience when testing G7 X Mark II – the autofocus was just horrible compared to Lumix FZ1000 that I’m used to. I was trying to take photos of some wild flowers with G7 X Mark II and it just wouldn’t focus right. Is autofocus on G5 X Mark II any better than G7 X Mark II? How would it compare to Lumix FZ1000? I’m...

Hi can someone please help me, I just purchased the canon g7x mark ii, I’ve had it for about 2 weeks. I took some test shots and I’ve been doing tons of research and watching so many YouTube videos on this camera. The problem I’m having is that every picture I take it comes out blurry, it looks like a regular old iPhone camera. I’ve seen so many other people with this camera and their images are perfect during the day time and at night. Can someone please tell me what settings should I use?...

Can someone measure the diameter of the barrel of the lens at the lens end? I may use this camera for digiscoping with my spotting scope. I need to know if it will fit my eyepiece right. I used to have an old Canon A590 and I got pretty good results. If the lens on the G7 is about the same diameter then I will be happy.

I am using a Canon PowerShot G7X Mark 2 (just the base unit and no additions). Using the Auto mode, I took the following photo: The door area, which is in focus, appears okay. However, the rest of the photo just looks extremely blurry (even though background defocus is not on), making the photo appear quite underwhelming. Does anyone know how I can circumvent this such that areas not in focus do not appear as blur as above? I'm not that well-versed with cameras, so advice is greatly...

Hi, can anyone help me with settings and mode to shoot myself running. I'd like to place the camara in scenic landscape press a button and then run around like an idiot while the camara takes pictures for me to choose from later. Sort of like a GoPro timelapse but the Canon timelapse does not do stills I believe. How can I achieve this and any advice on settings and if auto focus will work etc? I cannot use a mobile phone to take the shot so needs to be completely hands free and cover a good...
