In Topic: Canon G1X

11 March 2012 - 08:51 PM

I own a G10 and I've been using a G12, the focus speed is what is driving me away from the G series.

I tried the G1X in a well lighted room with a lot of constrats and the focus was not especially fast. In fact, I don't know if it's any faster than my G10.

The camera also seemed to be underpowered in the processing department. It's not quick. :drink:

In Topic: G10 the best route?

g10 is about $250 on ebay, the casing is $178 at B&H.

I've had the g10 for three years now. It's pretty good except in low light. You'll have to keep it at ISO 80 and use strobes. If you want to do natural light you'll be better off with the g11 or g12.

If I had to go for a new camera, I'd go for a larger sensor without mirror like the Panasonic GF1-2-3 or the Olympus Pen. You can find the EP1 with original Olympus casing for around 1200$.

Nice work, the BW is the correct choice. I think you found the way to do interesting photography in reduced visibility. I dive the St-Laurent on the Québec side.

I'm a freediver myself so I can appreciate the effort in swimming with a large SLR rig!

I like the 4th one, with the light coming through the deck.

You can now make comparisons with http://www.imaging-r...OMP/COMPS01.HTM

Unfortunately, it looks very noisy to me.
