Canon G Series Image Thread

I'm often tempted to go through my archives and dig up the raw files from the old G9 from 8/9 years ago and apply the PP skills to the files which I've learned in that time.

Yes, I cringe when I look at some of my earlier efforts.
I didn't start shooting raw until 2008, and only with the Sigma DP1 because it was necessary to get a decent image from it. Hardly any of my Canon G series or DSLR images were in raw until 2009 or later, so there's years of images that didn't get the benefit of raw. 30D and 5D Mark II jpegs were pretty malleable, although the real benefits came from raw. My photography mentor told me as early as 2004 that I should be shooting raw, but I didn't take her advice for ages. Back then, CF cards (remember those?) were expensive and limited in storage - a 1GB card was like a square of gold - and I liked to shoot a LOT. So rather than limit my ability to shoot, I used jpeg for years.

The Canon G7 lacked the ability to shoot raw at all; in order to do it, you had to use a hack. The raws were okay, but not spectacular. I think the real difference came through with larger sensor cameras at that time.

How did my backpack get so heavy? I thought mirrorless was lightweight!
Really enjoying my Samyang fisheye - it's the third FE lens I've owned, a Peleng on 4/3 and a previous Samyang on my first flirtation with m4/3. So I knew what I was getting. 👍
Ok, I'm all Creative Clouded out right now.... what a waste of time.
