Hi! I'm very glad to join this wonderful site and forums. Would like to get your opinion on upgrade benefits. Hope it's the right forum section. I'm not a pro, more a newbie in photography. For about a year I've been using Panasonic GM1 with three lens: Pan 14-42mm, Oly 45mm 1.8 and Pan 100-300mm. Before GM1 were old compacts: Canon G9 with 1/1.7'' for important shots and pocket Sony with 1/2.3'' sensor for day-to-day shots. Use the GM1 for general/street ("report") photography. Prefer...

I've had a few Canon point and shoot cameras over the past few years, and one of my favorite features has been "Movie Digest". If you're not familiar, when this feature is enabled the camera will take a short video clip every time you take a photo. Then, at the end of the day, the camera compiles all of the individual movie clips into a single video montage. At the end of the day, you have all of the photos you've taken, plus a single long video montage as well. I really love this feature,...
I would love any thoughts on the best compact ~135mm lens with modern-ish coatings…I have the Contax G90 and love it for a mid range tele, but now that I have the FE 55, I feel like something with a bit more reach may make more sense. This is to be used on the A7II. I’d use this for a VERY lightweight hiking kit that has been the 28mm F2 and the Contax G90, or the 28mm and the Minolta 100-300mm APO. Since this would mostly be for landscapes, fast aperture is not a high priority. The landscape...
Hi ... i have a canon G11 that needs replacing ... i have been with the G series since day 1 going from G9 to 11 ages ago. the G11 has lost the use of its dials and options and only works on auto/auto giving. Researching prices and other canon series ... which is the best in this type of camera? G16 ... the powershots? G1X Mark II .... G3... or other? thanks in anticipation.
I am interested in what the Canon G3X has to offer from those who have recently purchased it. I have used a G9 since it came out in 2006. My primary camera is the EOS-5d Mark III but there are times when I don't want to carry that plus three prime lenses, tripod and flash. The G9 served me well but it has it's limitations. I usually do not buy a camera or lens when it is first introduced and would like to know from those that have it what they think. Obviously the focal ranges are my...
I recently upgraded from a G9 to a G7X and have been noticing it is very difficult to get a sharp macro image. I decided to do some direct comparisons and the problem is far worse than I thought. While the G9 does super sharp macro less than 1cm from the subject, with only slight softening around the edges, the G7X has to be several centimetres away and has terrible distortion everywhere except the centre of the image. I know they had to make compromises to fit such a fast lens into a small...
Last week I borrowed a G9 for long term use. I will be taking the camera overseas, so I want to have reasonable mastery and understanding. I've been shooting for a few days, reading the manual, and searching the DPR Canon PowerShot forum. Gradually, I made setting adjustments, etc. I tried shooting with the RAW and JPG setting. The developed RAWs came out well, but the JPGs were not to my liking. (I will try later). Those of you with experience with the G9: What is your preferred...
Hi all, you may have to forgive me for the question, but I am a beginner and I've just upgraded from my old beloved Canon PowerShot G9 to a more challenging Canon EOS 70D camera. I'm a fan of low- and natural-light photography, and as such I thought I would be in need of a ultra-fast lens. However, I found myself struggling with the much shallower depth of field which is delivered already by the APS-C sensor coupled with the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens which was bundled with the...

I would value people's opinion here on the image quality of the G1X. I'm posting examples of images taken on my relatively new G1X MK 2. I bought the camera a couple of months ago and didn't have time to use it an awful lot until my annual holiday which I returned from a couple of weeks ago. In recent years I've left my DSLR gear at home preferring the lightness and flexibility of a smaller compact camera. The G1X replaced a G15, in the last few years I've also had a G9, G10 an S95 and I have...
