The Everyday Sling might just be the perfect pack for not carrying too much gear, combining comfort with Peak Design's signature modern style.
Overall performance of the G10 is roughly the same as the G9, which is generally speaking a good thing - in most respects the G9 was a very speedy camera. While some of the sizes and time taken for operation might have changed, in use the G10 feels the same as the G9, and if you weren't paying attention, you could easily forget if you were shooting with the G10 or the G9.
The focus performance of the G10 in good lighting conditions, is quite acceptable. It focuses faster at wider angles than it does at telephoto zoom settings. In low light or in macro mode, the G10 is quite slow, and even with the focus assist lamp activated, it can have problems focusing at all in very low light (but this is the same with almost all compacts). Shutter lag with LCD live view activated is not too bad, but we are still far from DSLR territory, and this is certainly not a camera to use if you want to capture the decisive moment, or shoot action. The shutter lag with Flash remains firmly in average compact territory.
The increase in resolution from 12.1MP to 14.7MP has not had much impact on shooting speed or storage time - the time to store a RAW + Jpeg has only increased by 0.5 seconds. The continuous shooting speed is slightly slower than the G9. A compact that can shoot RAW continuously at just under one frame a second is quite impressive, especially considering the almost 15 mp resolution. The G10 remains one of the few compacts on the market with a RAW mode that is usable (and not just a gimmick).
All times calculated as an average of three operations. Unless otherwise stated all timings were made on a 4416 x 3312 Super-Fine JPEG image (approx. 5,100 KB per image). The media used for these tests was a 4.0GB SanDisk Extreme III SD card.

|*1||You can also hold down the left or right buttons and scroll very quickly through images at approx 5 frames per second.|

|*3||With the flash on the shutter lag extends to around 0.3 seconds|
|*4||In this test the subject distance is only 3 feet (0.9 m) - the recycle time will increase at greater subject distances and after a few consecutive shots.|
|Half-press Lag (0->S1)
Many digital camera users prime the AF and AE systems on their camera by half-pressing the shutter release. This is the amount of time between a half-press of the shutter release and the camera indicating an auto focus & auto exposure lock on the LCD monitor / viewfinder (ready to shoot).
|Half to Full-press Lag (S1->S2)
The amount of time it takes from a full depression of the shutter release button (assuming you have already primed the camera with a half-press) to the image being taken.
(Take shot, AF/AE primed)
|Full-press Lag (0->S2)
The amount of time it takes from a full depression of the shutter release button (without performing a half-press of the shutter release beforehand) to the image being taken. This is more representative of the use of the camera in a spur of the moment 'point and shoot' situation.
(Take shot, AF/AE not primed)
The tables below show the results of our continuous shooting test, indicating the actual frame rate along with maximum number of frames and how long you would have to wait after taking the maximum number of frames before you could take another shot. Media used for these tests was a 8.0GB SanDisk Extreme III SD card. Shutter speed was kept above 1/200 sec during these tests. The aperture used in the testing of continuous drive mode was F3.5 (the wides aperture available at the zoom setting). ISO was kept at the auto setting.
The continuous shooting speed of the G10 varies depending on the aperture selected. The larger the aperture, the slower the continuous shooting speed. The surprise here is that with the continuous shooting speed of Continuous AF RAW + JPEG is the same as that of normal continuous (no AF). The Continuous AF mode shows the normal live preview between frames (and attempts to refocus between shots), but the normal Continuous mode only shows a very brief review image after each shot (no live preview), and the focus is fixed after the first shot. It's worth noting that the figures below (and those quoted by Canon) are only for ISO settings of under 400; at higher ISO's the frame rate drops to around half these values.
Frames in a burst *1
|14.7MP RAW + JPEG *3||Continuous||0.8 fps||No Limit||n/a|
|14.7MP RAW + JPEG *3||Continuous AF||0.8 fps*3||No Limit||n/a|
|14.7MP/9MP/5MP Super-Fine||Continuous||1.53 fps||No limit||n/a|
|14.7MP/9MP/5MP Super-Fine||Continuous AF||0.94 fps *3||No limit||n/a|
|14.7MP/9MP/5MP Super-Fine||Continuous mode (flash on)||0.85 fps *4||No limit||n/a|
|*1||In a single "burst" (finger held down on shutter release).|
|*2||With the shutter release held down. With a fast card it is impossible to fill the buffer|
|*3||Average speed - it will slow down if the camera has trouble focusing|
|*4||With the flash turned on, the time in between the first and second shot in continuous mode is quite long (around 2 seconds) but then the camera continues to shoot at the same speed as if the flash was not turned on, but the flash continues to fire, though with less power and duration.|
Although the performance is a step down from the G9 it's not a bad showing at all, and the fact you can shoot at a reasonable rate in RAW mode is very impressive - as is the ability to shoot almost indefinitely at almost 1fps with the flash turned on (though this only works at short distances and in fairly good light).
Timings shown below are the time taken for the camera to process and "flush" the image out to the storage card, the timer was started as soon as the shutter release was pressed and stopped when activity indicator went out. This means the timings also include the camera's processing time and as such are more representative of the actual time to "complete the task". The media used for these tests was a 4.0GB SanDisk Extreme III SD card.

The G10 can process and save a 5MB plus JPEG in around 1.1 seconds, and more impressively a 16.5MB RAW file in 3.0 seconds, and there is no speed penalty for shooting in RAW + JPEG vs RAW only. You will need a fast SD card to achieve these speeds.
When the Fujifilm X-T2 arrived, it was more than just a modest upgrade to the already impressive X-T1. While the new X-T3 hasn't changed the overall design of the camera, this model is way more than an upgrade; rather, it's a quantum leap.
The Movie Maker is a compact, motorized slider designed for phones, action cams and small mirrorless cameras. We think it's a fun little kit and a good value proposition for the cost, provided you can work around a few of its weak points.
