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...
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...
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.
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...
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...
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...
im interesting with Canon EOS 700D SLR-Digitalkamera on amazon.de, i've read many reviews, but im still not satisfied with it.
anyone can give me more reviews ? i saw it here http://www.amazon.de/dp/B00BYPW00I
and also need an advise, interesting to use it for my job.
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...
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...
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...
I have had this cracking lens for a few months now. It spends a lot of time on my 6d full frame. Just a few of my own fave shots with this lens. The f/1.2 can be a noose around the neck.....trying to get perfection with this non IS lens and Parkinsons tremor when hand held.
Being new to Canon, so not having any Canon lenses, I'd like to use my Sony Alpha lenses with my M. The only compatible 3rd party adapter I've found is by Rayqual ($100) It's touted by the EBay seller to be quality Japanese-made. It doesn't have any connection points, so I'm limited to MF and...
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...
Well I'm not usually an early adopter & having mulled over it a while I decided to go an buy an EOS M whilst they're still available.
I had been looking for used ones on ebay but found out last night that Argos (in the UK) are selling the body/zoom/flash kit for £199. They're selling out fast...
A little bit of messing about in post processing
Heavy handed (but I like it!) My wife says it turns an ordinary day into a stormy day. . .
Special thanks to Luke, who on another post inferred that adjusting the mid-tones might be useful.
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...
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...
I was out today taking shots of the Church were my daughter plans to marry in 14 months time, (can't start preparing too early she says)
anyway I was out there with all my expensive DSLR gear taking loads of shots and thought I just take a few 'wide' with my Canon S95, which never has been...
Not a lot of action on the M forum. Too bad. Great camera. The EOS M Flickr group has some of the best images on the web.
I bought one when they were giving them away. Sold it and then bought another new one after I realized that the IQ was simply amazing for the price.
If anyone is...
Ive used my friends g1x and loved it sooo much. But i found a similar one which is the t3i.
The t3is got 18 mega pix while g1x only has 14 but the picture quality is sooo great tho.
Its really great for portrait. But i really dont know about o ther function cuz i havent tried the t3i...
The latest dpreview 5/7/14 in-depth review of the G1X II states several times that "Whole camera pauses for about 1.5 seconds after the shutter release is halfway-pressed".
Anybody owning the G1X II experience this? Under what conditions?
I own the G1X Mark I, and my normal pause as above...

"I purchased my Canon G12 for the exact purpose to take to Mt Everest Base Camp. Due to its compact size, excellent build quality and great features, this midsize compact was for me. My trek to base camp took 14 days walking and for the whole time I took over 1500 photos...
Does anyone have one to loan, rent, or sell? I would even be open to one of those Russian turret finders.
Also, if anyone has used an OVF on the hotshoe of your G series, I'd be interested in hearing about your experience.
Snow visited Troy, NY overnight.
I tried a couple of grab shots in P mode with the G12 and the G1Z MkII
If you look closely at the G1X MkII picture, none of it appears to me to be razor sharp. Call me a lazy photographer, but it seems to me that in P mode at...
I’ve had he Canon G1X MkII for a couple of days now, and I thought I would share my impressions so far.
Fit & Finish
The G1X2 feels solid, dense, heavy. Barely bigger than the G12, it’s noticeably heavier and appears to be mostly made of metal. The hatch cover (on the bottom) for the battery...
Canon G12, ISO 1600, 122mm equivalent, F4.5, 1/20th, handheld . . . using the optical viewfinder!
Straight out of camera jpg
So then I played with it:
Same image, faux HDR processing through Picasa
DXO 9 "Structured B&W"
This is one of the things I like to photograph the most. I grew up in a rural farming community and still like to get back to rural areas and drive around endlessly on the back roads and stumble across gems like this. Within a year or so of getting the photo the buildings and trees are gone...
This is as psyched as I have been about a camera announcement in a long time.
Canon today announced the Powershot G1 X Mark II:
-Significantly smaller size than G1 X
-Omission of the lousy optical viewfinder
-Inclusion of optional XGA electronic viewfinder ($299)...
Just found the first pictures online of the new Canon G1X mark 2. While the specs sound very nice (large sensor, 24-120 lens with 2.0-3.9 aperture) i am a little disappointed that Canon decided to enter the "smaller is better' race by the looks of it (probably to compete with the RX100). I Would...
Less specs and more shots type review. I've looked at some of his other posts as well. The man sees things I can't, beautiful things.
Here's a great and long thread featuring a small Canon compact that to me punches above it's weight.
This link (photorumors.com) has some rumored specs for the G1X Mark II. Highlights include:
5x zoom lens
"Real image" optical zoom viewfinder (???)
20.2MP 1.5" sensor
The article claims the camera will be announced at CP+ in February. I was thinking of getting a...
I took one look at the photos and said: "The defense calls no further witnesses!"
First, a special thanks to entropic remnants (John Griggs) for speaking a wise word in due season. Upon reading his PM, I found myself smacking my forehead and crying out: "Of course! Color depth!" His patient explanation of binary math lead me to discover that my G12 has considerably more color...
I want to sell my whole eosm kit. I bought it all last mid July, 2013 and I never used it outside of my home, and not that often. Everything is in brand new condition and it all works perfectly. I have the original box and all the supplied accessories..The bundle includes the eosm body, the efm...
Canon sent me another check, so I feel obligated to publish some more EOS-M information :) (I'm kidding!)
For those with a morbid curiosity, here is a poorly done video I did showing EOS-M AF speed with EF-M lenses, EF lenses, operation speed and shot-to-shot speed.
IMO, the challenge for the...
Need to do more testing tomorrow, but here's the 60mm 2.0 macro initial tests on the EOS-M. A $200 lens :)
Pics are f/2.0, 2.8 and 5.6.
The spectral highlights are clipped at f/2.0, but round out nicely at 2.8. At 5.6 the get a bit geometric. Hope to shoot more with it tomorrow.
