Umm..He's Sick, My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with a girl who saw Ferris pass-out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious……

8 shots and some comments

I'm VERY happy with the G12 after the first few days. Comparing it to the G10, there's much I like better about this model:

-thumb pad on rear improves overall handling
-control dial on front reduces the number of button presses to change settings and results in fewer unintentional changes
-articulating screen helps with all kinds of shots (car shot with camera at curb level, plant shot from high overhead, street shooting from the hip, macro of flowers)
-two stops more of usable range in ISO before noise harms the shot
-menu "tips" help define the settings when you aren't carrying the manual

For my most common uses (macro and street), these things all make a big difference.

One complaint: The "always in exposure preview" mode that causes the display to go dark/black when shooting with off-camera flash. Only a problem when autofocus is used, but that's a big thing to give up. I hope this will become a setting in a future firmware update.

Note: EXIF on these images was edited to say G11 so I could process them in LR3 (two days before LR3.3 RC1 and Camera Raw 6.3 RC1 were released). A wide variety of post processing has been applied.

Setting: driving to/shot at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden on Sunday 10/24. Full album (if you possibly could stand more) is hereexternal link.

Nice shots. Did you make those B&W for artistic reasons, or were they too noisy?

Most of the images at this page have EXIF data (inside). I'm using Opera browser (Windows) so I can see it just by checking image properties (right click on the image). I don't know about other browsers (Firefox, IE, Chrome etc.) it's been a long time I used any of those :), but there have to be some kind of EXIF viewing plugin for any browser.

ECKA,
I do not get EXIF data using IE running OS Windows Vista.

Purely artistic. All the shots were shot at ISO 100 and are virtually noise-free. I could post the original jpegs with no cropping or pp effects if the comparison would be helpful.

Actually, that WOULD be helpful. I really like these. You have some skills.

Thanks very much. Okay, here are the same 8 shots, original SOOC jpegs (NOT converted from RAW, I shot in RAW+JPEG). No PP applied, just a resize in Preview to 1024x768x72dpi and save. I think you will like what this G can do.

Thanks for that - I think you chose the B&W subjects perfectly. Well done!

Yes, very nice. You have good skills in both composition and PP. I haven't played much with B&W, but this is inspiring. I think the B&W treatment did improve those shots.

seems to be a thread like this for the other recent G models so I will start the ball rolling with a macro shot of a Black Darter on Thursley Common:
