    Canon VERY Initial impressions of the G7X

    OK, let me start off by saying that I have not used a Canon camera (P&S or otherwise) aside from occasionally on vacation (my wife's 5 year old SD960 and that was very infrequently) for quite a while. Had several P&S and more advanced cameras years ago (never a DSLR) but ended up switching to...

    Canon Anyone have/seen any higher ISO samples from the G7X?

    Aside from my wife's 5 year old Canon Powershot SD960, I have not regularly used a Canon camera in many years (moved to Olympus and never really looked back), but I really like what I am seeing as far as specs and people's overall impressions of the G7X. My current "small" camera is the...

    Canon G7x ooc jpeg

    Seems most of the images I have seen so far with the G7X are in RAW and processed. For most people including myself shooting in JPEG and go with OOC as time permits is more the norm. Curious how the G7X OOC JPEG compares with the RX100 III OOC JPEG.

    Canon Showcase Canon G7X Image Thread

    OK, as an early adopter, I may as well start this one off. Here's a bunch of stuff from Philly yesterday. A mix of river scenes (the City just opened a "boardwalk" over a stretch of the Schuylkill Riverfront last week, so I spent some time there), streetscapes, architecture, and a bit of my...

    Canon Harvest Festival Parade

    The small town where I live, Talent, Oregon, celebrates its farming roots every October with a Harvest Festival, complete with an old fashioned parade down Main Street. They've been doing this for almost half a century now, and it brings geezers, tractors, and toddlers out of the woodwork. It...

    Canon Canon G7X shooters impressions

    With all of the rumors that have been floating over the past months of the “serious compacts” that were anticipated at Photokina, and with all of the excitement over the “LX8” (which became the LX100), the camera I absolutely didn’t see coming AT ALL and wouldn’t have expected to be of any...

    Canon So how bad is the G1XMKII?

    In the relatively short time I've spent as a "photography enthusiast" three cameras have seemed like game-changers to me: Fuji X100; Olympus E-M5; and Sony RX100. Lots of other great cameras, but these three seemed to re-establish the bar. I bring that up because the LX100, prematurely, I...

    Canon Canon G7X This one really could tick a lot of boxes for me, providing that it lives up to the potential of course. Same sensor as the RX100 series. Lens that combines the best aspects of the RX100 series, fast like the m3, wide like the m3, but...

    Canon New 24mm f2.8 EF-S pancake

    Looks to be about the same size as the 40mm f2.8 but a more useful focal range for APS-C I think. Still not a small camera but I don't think it'd be much worse than walking around with a A6000 with say a Sigma 30mm...

    Canon Non-Canon Lens Adapters

    Being new to Canon, so not having any Canon lenses, I'd like to use my Sony Alpha lenses with my M.

    My compacts are the LX5&7, and I enjoy shooting both of them. However, I've lusted for a small APS-C for stealth street photography. I couldn't pass up the $311 22mm deal from B&H, it's my first Canon product, and it should be here tomorrow. I'm aware of the model's problems, but with my style...

    Canon EOS-M a mistake?

    So, we all know that canon USA has dropped the little M. Luckily, I live in Canada, so I still have access to the M, including the excellent 11-22 lens. It seems such a shame, as the M is a great camera, with a great sensor and, with firmware update, a great auto-focus system. Shortcoming...

    Canon Canon T3i vs EOS-M

    So, it's come to my attention that Canon released a mirrorless (not too surprising) and that not only has the price on it plummeted to below half of the initial asking price (far more surprising, as Canon camera costs seem to linger a while). Now I've played around with and quite enjoyed the...
